The Sexism Card: Is Sarah Palin Really A Victim Or Is She Bluffing?

We all know sexism is alive and well in America. Hollywood’s seemingly endless celebration of the chubby, schlubby, slacker dude is sexist as hell, given that chubby, schlubby, slacker girls get nowhere in Tinseltown, least of all the big screen. And yes, much of the media’s coverage of Hillary Clinton’s campaign was sexist too—and I…

Soundtrack To The DNC: Hillary Clinton’s Dream Playlist

Politicians aren't exactly known for having musical taste, but you would expect the people who throw big events like, I dunno, the Democratic National Convention, would do a better job of picking cool music to introduce some of their most important speakers. That's why it struck me as an odd choice to have Hillary Clinto…

Hillary Clinton Thanks Her Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pantsuits And Urges Them To Keep Going

Full-disclosure: I did not vote for Hillary Clinton, for a variety of reasons, none of which I'll get into here. But as a female, I was happy to see how close a woman got to winning the nomination, even though I didn't personally want her to win it. After watching her speech last night at…

Presidential Candidates’ Spouses Participate In Cookie Bake-Off

Every year, Family Circle magazine has a cookie-off among the potential first spouses' recipes, and the vote often goes the same way as general election. In 2004, Teresa Heinz Kerry's pumpkin spice cookies lost to Laura Bush's oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies; in 2000, Laura's Texas Governor's Mansion Cowboy cookies beat Tipper Gore's ginger snaps; and…

The Daily Squeeze: Harvard Hates Harry Potter, Nudism, Women Voters, And Teen Sex On The Rise

Some Harvard grads were a little pissy that their Ivy League school invited Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling to speak at commencement rather than, say, Bill Gates. Get over it, nerds, J.K. rules! [NPR]…

Has Bill Clinton Been A Naughty Boy Again…And Again…And Again?

We take everything we hear on Fox News with a grain of salt, but being that they're only reporting on a story that's in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, we'll give this rumor a little credence. According to an expose on the former-President in VF, Clinton has been dilly-dallying with many women since leaving…

The Daily Squeeze: No Male Mollys, Hillary’s Women, And James Marsden’s Shyness

There are no male Amazon Molly fish. The females reproduce by hooking up with males of other species, though none of their sperms seems to be used, and offspring inherit only their mother's genes. Scientists are baffled. [Telegraph.co.uk]…

Where Women Rule

We’ve all wondered: What if women ruled the world? While it may seem far fetched, we’ve already got a town -- McLean, Texas. It’s got one stoplight and a whole lot of unstoppable women. Since 2007, the mayor, her five aldermen, the post office master, the justice of the peace, school principal, the bank, nursing…

Amy Poehler Won’t Dish On Dirty Talk

Majorly adorable Saturday Night Live cast member and Baby Mama star, Amy Poehler, was on The Today Show this morning, and Meredith Viera just could not resist asking Amy if she talks in her sexiest Hillary Clinton voice for hubby Will Arnett. Her surprisingly prudish response, in the clip above.

What Are Hillary And Obama Doing?

The Presidential (Fashion) Race

Last week, fashion writer Hadley Freeman critiqued Hillary Clinton's wardrobe. This week, she takes on the male presidential candidates' sartorial choices. There aren't as many options for men, but the cut of a suit can suggest a lot. "Look at McCain, striding around in his boxy blue suits, single button always done up to cover…

Chelsea Clinton Shuts ‘Em Down

Yesterday at an event in support of Hillary Clinton (who was not present) a man asked Chelsea Clinton whether she thought the Monica Lewinski scandal affected her mother's credibility. This is how Chelsea answered. Honestly, I have mixed feelings about whether or not that whole debacle should be addressed by Hillary and/or Bill, but I…

Hillary’s Morning Routine

Does Hillary Clinton's morning routine put her at a disadvantage? Michael Kinsley writes on Slate.com that Hillary probably spends at least 40 minutes getting ready in the morning, while her male opponents most likely spend around 20 minutes showering, shaving, and getting dressed. "Every day, seven days a week, for almost two years, the candidate…

Blood Lines: The Jolie-Pitt-Obama-Clinton Family

Every once and a while they publish these silly reports that show, through an extended family tree, just how famous people are related to each other. Last time the media latched on to a story like this, we found out Dick Cheney and Barack Obama were related. This time, the news is a lil' better…

The news wires are all abuzz because a review of Senator Clinton's just released-schedule during her eight years as First Lady reveals that she had appointments at the White House on the day her husband, President Bill, had oral sex with Monica Lewinsky.

Gennifer Flowers: Sex, Lies, and Audio Tapes

Gennifer Flowers, the self-proclaimed "charismatic actress, comedienne, and singer," is better known for her recordings of President Clinton. The pair allegedly had a 12-year affair that was exposed during his 1992 Presidential campaign. Memorably, Flowers called a press conference to play taped phone conversations in which they called each other "honey." While Flowers claims she…

Hillary Clinton: Fashion Victim

Hillary Clinton is trying to become the first female president, fighting her way for a sacred slot every young girl has dreamed about. Yet there’s been an appalling glut of woman on woman crime in the media. The way some female journalists are responding, you’d think Hillary is running for America’s Next Top Model. Vogue’s
