Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
Today’s challenge: Would you rather be restricted to Lady Gaga or Hillary Clinton‘s wardrobe for the rest of your life. In a nutshell, the pants-less vs. the pantsuit. To consider: Lady Gaga probably has nothing in her closet even remotely normal, whereas Hillary’s uniform of lady pantsuits is all about the mundane (except for that bright orange one, which is horrifying). So, essentially, you’re choosing between a life of looking completely conservative or completely offensive. Which one’s it gonna be? Debate it out in the comments below. Keep reading »
“I do think Hillary Clinton‘s candidacy changed the atmosphere. I never for a moment thought a woman could win. It’s too soon.

A poll of news watchers showed that our Secretary of State has a 75% approval rating with only 21% disapproval. The Prez is lagging behind, with 51% approval and 41% disapproval. This is good news for Hillary if she decides to run again. But this gap is due, in part, to the fact that a whole lot of Republicans like Hillary better. In fact, the GOP is behind Hillary 57% while only 19% of them like Barack. Ahhh, it’s hard to be the boss. [Newser] Keep reading »
