I am easily susceptible to secondhand embarrassment. I watch many reality TV shows from behind my hands or a pillow and visibly cringe when someone who is old enough to be my parent uses current slang. So maybe it’s just me being sensitive, but this video of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton getting freaked by a singer/dancer at a dinner party in South Africa was embarrassing in a way I haven’t felt since walking in on my parents having sex in 1992. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. But still, when the dancer drops her butt low and backs it up into Hillary? Cannot be unseen. (Plus, now in GIF form after the jump!) Keep reading »
President Bill Clinton co-hosted a party with Prince Albert of Monaco and took a photograph with three beautiful young women.
Those women just happened to be porn stars. According to The Atlantic Wire, one woman is Brooklyn Lee, who appeared in the porn flick “Secretaries 4″; another is Tasha Reign, who appeared in “Farm Girls Gone Bad”; and the third woman has been identified as someone named Jennifer Taule. Everyone from Page Six to the UK’s Daily Mail is falling over themselves over “Bubba and the porn babes.”
Why does anyone care? Keep reading »
I, like the rest of the internet, am pretty obsessed with this pic of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton workin’ the dance floor in Cartagena, Colombia. Hill was chillaxing after a busy day attending the Summit of the Americas this past weekend. I wonder what song was playing? [via Buzzfeed]
Today in “two names I didn’t expect to see in the same headline”: Hillary Rodham Clinton and Amelia Earhart. It’s true, though: the Secretary of State met with the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery on Tuesday to show support to their efforts. The group, composed of scientists and historians, is launching a new search for Earhart’s plane off the Pacific island nation of Kiribati, based on the hypothesis that Earhart’s aircraft actually landed on the island, and the pilot and her navigator may have been able to survive for days or weeks after they vanished off the radar on July 2, 1937. While Clinton won’t be participating in the actual search, her department said that “lauding Earhart’s legacy as a pioneer for women and a model of American courage” is an important mission in itself.

“Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me, but they all seem to. It doesn’t matter what country they’re in or what religion they claim, they all want to control women. They want to control how we dress, they want to control how we act, they even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and our own bodies. Yes, it is hard to believe. But even here at home, we have to stand up for women’s rights and reject efforts to marginalize any one of us because America needs to set an example for the entire world.”
— Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton spoke this weekend at The Daily Beast’s Women In The World summit and reminded us why we’re grateful to have this woman representing us to the world. I love how she spoke about extremists in general, not naming one religion specifically, and how she didn’t reference anti-abortion Republicans specifically, either. It makes it all the more powerful that she’s talking about the philosophy behind control, not sidelining her point by bashing anyone in particular for doing it. [Nerve]
