Jerry Seinfeld Performs A “Comic Intervention” On Jon Stewart

Everyone in the media has been scratching their heads on how to write about Rep. Michele Bachmann‘s bigotry towards gays and her husband Marcus Bachmann’s work “treating” gays in so-called “ex-gay therapy.” He apparently said gay people are “barbarians” that need to be “educated” and “disciplined.” Do we report this as straight news?

Michele Bachmann Doesn’t Call Herself A Feminist

I could not have been more annoyed when Sarah Palin called herself a “feminist.” It wasn’t because I think a hairy-legged, Diva Cup-loving separatist in Berkeley should get to decide what a feminist is. (I am quite sure she would take one look at my mani/pedi and send me back to the gallows for more…

Michele Bachmann: What Sexist BS Can She Expect While Running For President?

Rep. Michele Bachmann formally announced on Monday she is seeking the Republican nomination for President. The feminist within me says, “Yay, someone with a vagina running for president!” Followed by a vehement, “OH HELL NO.” Just because a woman is running for president does not mean all women should support her.

Ugh. Obnoxious comments from “Hardball”‘s Chris Matthews and “Real Time”‘s Bill Maher, who were discussing Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann on TV.
