Dear Vladimir Franz,
They say that beauty is only skin deep, and it’s pretty clear that you took that literally. As the first fully-tattooed presidential candidate of the Czech Republic (and like, probably anywhere?), you’re blazing a trail for ink-stained politicians everywhere. Keep reading »
Between Brian Williams making marijuana jokes, Diane Sawyer possibly being drunk(?), and Karl Rove begging Fox News to take back that whole “Obama wins” thing, the election newscasts last night were chock full of fun. Even among all the holograms and painted ice maps, I couldn’t help but notice Tom Brokaw’s awesome tortoiseshell eyeglasses. The trendy round frames somehow seemed both playful and sophisticated–well played, Brokaw. Want to nab a pair for yourself? I found 3 similar frames at 3 different price points. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
I grew up in a house with a Democrat mom and a “Republican” dad. I put Republican in quotes because technically my dad wasn’t registered as anything — he did that to avoid jury duty or something — but he did like to argue with my mom and me about our progressive politics. And he definitely didn’t have strong enough convictions to ever publicly display a yard sign in support of his candidate. Not so for this equally divided house, where the husband’s public support of Mitt Romney prompted his wife to put up a conflicting sign. Ah, the struggles of the bipartisan household! [NYMag.com]
You’re probably sick to death of hearing about their husbands, but Ann Romney and Michelle Obama merit some attention, too. We’re not going to talk about their politics, but we are going to examine their wardrobes. In the past four years, Michelle’s risen to prominence as a fashion star, but Ann certainly is giving her a run for her money. After the jump, we size up the candidates’ wives sartorial chops.
Now that we’ve gotten that silly town hall presidential debate out of the way, let’s discuss what’s really important: clothes! In a twist of fashion fate, First Lady Michelle Obama and Ann Romney both sported vibrant pink to last night’s event in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Egg went for a casual sheath style in a crepey fabric, which she paired with a chunky beaded teal necklace, while Michelle opted for a dressier look complete with matching jacket and a string of pearls. We have our own convictions about who came out on top (and who got shoved in a binder), but what say you?
Scott Stapp is the lead singer of ’90s band Creed. Creed are a bunch of Nickleback Jrs. — they used to be, like, the most hated band in the world until Chad Kroeger and Co. unseated them. Nowadays, Stapp is busy punditing about the upcoming election on Fox News. He’d really like another Reagan, but might just settle for Romney! Important, if you’re the type to make your political choices based on how your favorite ’90s musicians will vote. But more importantly, Stapp now looks like Quagmire on “Family Guy.”
Guys, the 2012 presidential election is nigh! And with less than two months to go before the next president is elected, y’all need to get your voting ducks in a row. If you’re not registered, or not sure where you’re registered, or are concerned about weird, restrictive new voter ID laws in your states, we’ll give you the resources to make it to the booth on time.

Okay, maybe not his blood — but definitely his tax returns. The porn broker took out full page ads in The Washington Post and USA Today, soliciting information on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s financials. Romney has released tax returns for 2011 and 2010, but has repeatedly stated that he will not make available any additional tax information.
Flynt’s offer comes at a perfect time: earlier in the week, an anonymous source claimed he had stolen several of Romney’s past tax returns, and was holding the information ransom for $1 million dollars. Perhaps they’ll link up.
This isn’t the first time the Hustler publisher has offered cash for political information. An avowed Democrat, Flynt similarly offered money for information about Republican sex scandals during President Clinton’s term. [WPTV]
Well, it sort of appears so. Wonder who tipped the Romney/Ryan team to the idea — I’m guessing it was one of Romney’s five hot sons…
As much as I love it when women’s magazines try to inject political coverage in between the beauty tips, sometimes the end result is a painful FAIL.
Take a piece on Glamour.com about working on a presidential campaign: “It’s like one giant summer camp whirlwind!” What does that mean, exactly? Well, if you’re a woman working in the campaign trail, it means “a lot of sex and drinking,” trying to sleep with a Secret Service agent and fattening up on all the free muffins. Keep reading »
