CNN’s Campbell Brown totally tore the McCain camp a new you-know-what for banning reporters from questioning Sarah Palin while she was in New York yesterday meeting with world leaders at the United Nations. Don’t have the patience to watch the vid? Transcript after the jump… Keep reading »
When I heard that VP-nominee Sarah Palin installed a tanning bed in the Governor’s Mansion in Alaska, I was simultaneously amused and appalled. But Palin isn’t alone. There are tons of celebrities who are STILL fans of visiting the tanning salon despite all the research which shows how dangerous the practice is — of course, some of them do indulge in the much safer spray-tanning craze, as well. Either way, the color their skin turns is hardly what you’d consider…flattering or particularly natural and healthy-looking. Check out the color samples above — those are the actual skin colors of celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, and Paris Hilton — with the imaginary names I’d give them if they actually bottled it in fake tanner formula. Check out all the celebrities with an obsession for having a bronze glow, after the jump… Keep reading »
When Sarah Palin addressed the nation last week at the RNC, the first female Republican VP candidate introduced a topic to the campaign I doubt most people ever saw coming. This week, it isn’t off-shore drilling, the war in Iraq, or even abortion rights that people are talking about, it’s lipstick. Thanks to Palin, we now know it’s what separates the hockey moms from the pit bulls, but as Obama reminded us a few days ago, lipstick won’t stop a pig from being a pig, a remark that’s prompted a heated debate and even brand new political ads. Surely, with all this focus on lipstick, it’s just a matter of time before someone comes out with one named after Palin. But why stop with just her? Why not introduce a whole lipstick line for Campaign ’08 ? I can see it now — we’ll have… Keep reading »
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 wasn’t even a Hillary supporter, so this isn’t just a P.U.M.A.’s bitterness talking.
The latest accusation of sexism in the media comes from Governor Sarah Palin, the Vice Presidential nominee for the McCain campaign. Her supporters, her spokespeople, and conservative commentators like Bill O’Reilly assert that she is the target of sexist smear campaign. This is surprising for two reasons: 1) O’Reilly has consistently pooh-poohed claims of sexism in the past and 2) wasn’t it only a few months ago that Palin said Clinton should “stop whining” about sexism herself?

The Presidential Election is mere weeks away! It used to be that t-shirts were the only way you could show your support for a candidate, or just the electoral process in general, but nowadays everyone from Etsy vendors to Forever 21 is selling political related accessories — rings, neclaces, tote bags — with cool graphics and arty pizazz. Check out ten picks after the jump! Keep reading »
Whether Sarah Palin is a politician you already support or don’t support, this video from Current’s Sarah Haskins (Sarah, I am still waiting for you to return that note I sent you, where I asked “Will you be my best friend? Check ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.) is hilarious. Will Palin help McCain seize the P.A.N.T.H.E.R. vote? Guess we’ll find out in November! Keep reading »
