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…

Politicians Cheat On Their Wives — Who Cares?

Last Friday, John Edwards finally fessed up to having an affair with Rielle Hunter in 2006, after reports surfaced in the National Enquirer.

How Do We Still Love You, Don Draper?

The same week John Edwards admitted to cheating on his wife with Rielle Hunter, Mad Men’s Don Draper lost his (short) battle NOT to cheat on his wife.

What Does It Mean To Be “Whipped”?

No, not literally, silly — like, in the sense where you’re a man and your lady has you wrapped around her little finger…or something? We ask because GQ has put together such a lovely slideshow of famous men who are, in their view, whipped by their wives (or husbands, in the case of Elton Joh…

The Hottest Politician Drops Out

Oh John Edwards. If politics was about rugged good looks, a killer smile, and unapologetic sex appeal, you might have won the nation’s heart. But alas, a car salesman’s haircut, a Southern drawl, and a sassy and smart wife were not enough to guarantee you the Democratic nomination for President. With you out of the…

Poll: Presidential Politics In The Bedroom

The National Enquirer is reporting that a woman who was allegedly having an affair with Presidential candidate John Edwards for over a year is pregnant with his child (though she, Edwards, and the man she says is the father are denying it). Elizabeth, Edwards’ wife, has been sick with cancer for the last few years.
