Kristen Helps Republicans Vajazzle Their Message

Once upon a time, Kristen Schaal from “The Daily Show” was a selfish single woman just like me, only caring about where her next free “whore pills” came from. But just as conservative pundits say, once she became a married woman, Schaal suddenly cared about the future of this country. You know, like a married lady does. Here is Schaal on why that ring around her finger made her throw support behind Mitt Romney. [The Daily Show]

A blueberry filibuster!

Kristen Schaal lent her talents to this animated short, “Diary of a Blueberry,” a story written by 2nd grader Julia Isabel Padro. It was produced by Story Pirates, a non-profit organization started by Schaal, whose mission is to take short stories written by children and make them come alive with real animation production by professionals who volunteer their time and resources. I love this. And that blueberry got it right! Everyone does deserve the right not to be eaten. [YouTube]

Today’s Lady News: “The Daily Show” Schools Michele Bachmann On The HPV Vaccine

  • Kristen Schaal was on “The Daily Show” last night as Senior Women’s Issues Correspondent addressing Rep. Michele Bachmann’s latest WTF claim that she met a woman whose child became mentally retarded from the HPV vaccine. Which, as you may have heard, the medical community says is total BS. Wear headphones and there’s imagery that’s NSFW at the end, so make sure your boss isn’t a-lurkin’! [The Daily Show]
  • Virginia may lose all 22 clinics that provide abortion. What does that mean? People who can afford to will travel up to places like New York where abortion is much more accessible. And everyone who can’t afford it? If you have an unintended pregnancy, then it sucks to be you. [New York Times]
  • Journalist Lea Goldman at Marie Claire examines the “pinkification” of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), when tons of products become pink and we’re told a portion goes to breast cancer research. But how much money do researchers actually receive — and how much of this is just opportunistic hucksterism? [Marie Claire]

Kristen Schaal Makes Us Wanna Play Video Games

 

Commercials are usually those things I fast-forward through on the DVR because they’re loud and try to get me to buy things I don’t need. However, every once in a while, there is one I love. Take, for example, this campaign for Sony Ericsson’s Experia Play smart phone, starring Kristen Schaal, totally cracks me up as Mel, the lone fan slash stalker on “Flight of the Conchords.” Message to companies: include awesome female comics in your ads, and I will consider purchasing your stuff.

Another spot, after the jump. Keep reading »

  • Leave it to Kristen Schaal at “The Daily Show” to give the best assessment of Republicans’ attempts to redefine rape in the No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act. “Rape with benefits” and “rape-ish” are sooo becoming part of my vocabulary. Thankfully, the phrase “forcible rape” has been cut from the bill. [The Daily What via The Daily Show, Washington Post]
  • Former Oklahoma State Senator Herb Rozell suggested a pregnant woman who was nominated to the State Board of Education would be “worthless” because she would give birth during the legislative session and be totally obsessed with diapers or something. Rozell has been condemned by OK’s Governor Mary Fallin and other lawmakers, including two who said, “In this day and age, to have that type of attitude about a woman’s ability to serve is offensive, discriminatory and just wrong.” [Tulsa Beacon]
  • Starting salaries for female doctors are $17,000 less than for male doctors, according to a study published in Health Affairs. Oh, hell no. [Wall Street Journal]

Frisky Q&A: Kristen Schaal & Rich Blomquist On “The Sexy Book Of Sexy Sex”

Maybe you know Kristen Schaal from “The Daily Show,” or her role as stalker Mel on “Flight of the Conchords,” or from small roles in about a dozen different movies. And while you probably don’t know his face, if you’re a “Daily Show” viewer, you’ve heard Jon Stewart deliver Rich Blomquist’s jokes, because he works there as a writer.

What you may not have known is that the two are a very funny couple in real life and have just released a hilarious book, entitled, The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex (Chronicle). Part instructional manual, part highly scientific history of sex, TSBOSS has a little something for anyone who’s ever even thought about touching themselves or someone else, “down there.” We caught up with Kristen and Rich to ask them a few questions about their latest project — check out what they had to say, after the jump!

The Women Of “The Daily Show” Say It’s Not A Boys’ Club, Jon Stewart Is Not A Sexist Jerk

A few weeks ago, our fellow ladyblog Jezebel.com wrote a post about “The Daily Show,” in which female employees past and present say women correspondents and joke writers aren’t valued as much as men. One past female employee straight-up called it a “boys’ club”; another said the show doesn’t want the jokes and skits to be “too female,” presumably because they might alienate male viewers. When Jezebel penned “The Daily Show’s Woman Problem,” actress/comedian/ex-Playboy model Olivia Munn had just joined the heavily male show and she was the first woman to do so — after Samantha Bee and Kristen Schaal — in several years. Lots of peeps were complaining that “The Daily Show” hires so many new male correspondents, but the most recent female one they hire had Playboy on her resume. All that, when the show is supposed to be so progressive and liberal! It all came to a head last week, when Jon Stewart yelped on air, “Jezebel.com thinks I’m a sexist pr**k!”

Now the women of “The Daily Show” have responded on Comedy Central’s website and they want you to know: they love their job, Jon Stewart is not sexist, and everything is rainbows and bunnies. Portions of their letter, after the jump … Keep reading »
