50 shades Kirsten Gillbrand

I’m as disinterested in whether Joe Biden waxes his undercarriage as I am in whether Kirsten Gillibrand reads 50 Shades Of Grey. But someone — hopefully someone currently hiding under their desk in shame? — thought it would be a good question to ask New York Senator Gillibrand and her challenger Wendy Long during a debate on Wednesday night. The candidates were participating in a rapid-fire round of yes-or-no questions. But included in still-kinda-stupid-but-kinda-legitimate questions like “Do you write your own tweets?”, they were asked if either had read 50 Shades Of Grey. And while I couldn’t care less if either woman read a SEXY SEX BOOK ABOUT HAVING SEX, I can’t imagine why this information is the least bit important to, you know, governing. However, I will hold off on declaring this question sexist until someone asks two male politicians whether they’ve read another famous sadomasochism tome, The Story Of O. (Seriously. Please. Someone do that.) [NYMag.com] [Photos: Getty/Amazon]
