André Cassagnes, Creator Of The Etch-A-Sketch, Dies

Pink Stinks For Toys

André Cassagnes, the 86-year-old creator of the popular kid’s toy the Etch-A-Sketch, died in Paris on January 16, it was revealed Thursday. The toy that managed to fascinate and then totally bore kids everywhere, was first introduced at a toy fair in Nuremberg, Germany, in 1959. It fell out of the public consciousness until this past election season, when someone on Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s team was quoted as saying that the campaign was like an Etch-A-Sketch: “I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign,” said Roney spokesperson Eric Fehrnstrom. “Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch-A-Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.”

We’re sad to hear of Cassagnes’ passing. If only death were as easy to shake as an Etch-A-Sketch… [Gifts and Decorative Accessories]

Romney Face-Tattoo Guy Changes His Mind

If you ask us, it seems a little two-faced. Just two weeks after he said he had no regrets about his Mitt Romney face tattoo, Eric Hartsburg has decided to accept an offer to have it removed for free, reports Politico. What’s behind the change of heart? He apparently didn’t like Romney’s post-election “gifts” comment, and says the tat now “stands not only for a losing campaign but for a sore loser.” Will Kirby, who has appeared on shows like “Dr. 90210,” will provide the painful removal sessions, which could take almost a year to complete. Politico notes that, unfortunately for Hartsburg, blue is one of the trickier colors to erase. Read more…

10 Things Obama Supporters Love About Tuesday’s Election

1. Our social media kicked your Super Pac’s ass. Sheldon Adelson, called by The New York Times, “the biggest single donor in political history” backed eight conservative Republican candidates through Super Pacs. None of them won. People have been wondering when America would have its social media driven “Arab Spring”? This was it.

2. Karl Rove’s $300 million extra super, ugly, horrible super bad day. Karl Rove has been a boil on the ass of the American political landscape since he first ushered George W. Bush into the White House in 2000. His smug Fox News-driven run of seemingly invincible political gutter dredging has finally come to an end. His American Crossroads Super Pac spent a lot of money and delivered a record-breaking bad return on investment. Read more…

It’s over.

For a while, I managed to hold it together. There was pie to eat and wine to drink and a couch to sink gratefully into. There were friends to laugh with and sigh with, dishes to clean up, and an 8am meeting on my calendar to shake my fist at. There were distractions galore.

Around midnight Tuesday night, when my friends trickled out of the apartment, yawning, and I was alone again, I stretched out on the couch for the long wait. I remember how I felt in 2008 watching Obama’s acceptance speech, and I wanted that feeling again. Keep reading »

10 Suggested Jobs For Mitt Romney Now That He Is Unemployed

Listen, my guy may have won on Election Day, but I am not without sympathy for the presidential race’s loser, Mitt Romney. It totally sucks to be out of work, especially when you’re not sure what profession you’re going to pursue next. (Mitt has said that if he didn’t become president, he would be done with politics.) Because I really care about Mitt, and know those millions of dollars in the Cayman Islands won’t last forever, I thought I would help him out with some suggestions…
