Today’s Lady News: Bristol Palin’s Memoir Coming This Summer

  • Bristol Palin’s memoir is set for publication in summer of 2011. Yes, her memoir. Damn, why don’t I ever hear about these kinds of ghostwriting gigs? Actually, I don’t think I could ghostwrite whatever party line Bristol’s going to tow about abstinence with a straight face. [Gawker]
  • The Protect Life Act, introduced by Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA), would allow doctors to choose whether or not to save the life of a pregnant woman over that of her fetus. Be afraid. Be very afraid. [Feministing]
  • “The View”‘s Elisabeth Hasselbeck called Bill Maher a “chauvinist bigot” after he said that in exchange for Egypt releasing detained journalist Lara Logan, they should put her “hotness” on an airplane back to the U.S. and get shipped Hasselbeck instead. [Oh No They Didn't]

Quickies: Sarah Palin Is “Great Masturbation Material” For Tracy Morgan

  • Tracy Morgan called Sarah Palin “great masturbation material” — a sexist assessment of the telegenic but dimwitted ex-governor, but nevertheless one that holds a grain of truth. So, if his “30 Rock” co-star Tina Fey does a spot-on Sarah Palin impersonation, does that mean Tracy thinks Tina is great masturbation material, too? [The Superficial]
  • Author Terry McMillian recently tweeted that Willow and Jaden Smith were being “pimped” and “exploited” by their parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, and that she saw an “arrogance in their demeanor and behavior.” She then issued an apology, no doubt in response to rabid “Whip My Hair” fans.

  • Bristol Palin pulled out of a “Sexual Responsibility Week” talk at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, after students threatened a revolt. [TMZ.com]

Today’s Lady News: Columnist Declares February A Sarah Palin-Free Month

  • Washington Post op-ed writer Dana Milbank has pledged to make February a Sarah Palin-free month in his column. Perhaps we should follow in his footsteps … [Washington Post]
  • Why isn’t Condoleezza Rice married? That’s the pressing question TV host Piers Morgan asked the former Secretary of State when she visited his new talk show on CNN. [Black Voices]
  • A Washington state rep introduced a bill this week that would require so-called “crisis pregnancy centers” to publicly disclose their anti-abortion agenda to wannabe patients. (Typically, “crisis pregnancy centers” set up shop near actual abortion clinics to purposefully confuse women, and once inside, they’ll make the women watch anti-abortion videos and lie to them about health effects of abortion.) Not surprisingly, Care Net, the nation’s largest chain of Christian “crisis pregnancy centers,” which operates 38 sham clinics in Washington, is hopping mad. [Seattle Post-Intelligencer]
  • Birth control pills don’t cause weight gain, according to a new study of rhesus monkeys at the Oregon National Primate Research Study Center. So if you’re worried about your slutty pet monkey getting fat from The Pill, fret not. [New York Daily News]

Today’s Lady News: Bill O’Reilly Sees No Media “Gender Bias” Against Sarah Palin

  • Bill O’Reilly said on “The O’Reilly Factor” last Thursday that he did not see any gender bias in the media’s coverage of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann. Palin herself has said the media’s treatment of her has been sexist at times. You know, this actually makes me feel a little bad for these two women: it must suck to have a man from your side of the aisle be dismissive of the B.S. you go through. [Daily Caller]
  • Rep. Gabrielle Giffords may be out of the hospital on Friday, her husband has said. Her next stop will be a rehabilitation center in Texas to overcome injuries from the gunshot wound to the head she sustained during the mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona, two weeks ago. We wish her a swift recovery. [MSNBC]
  • George Bronk, 23, of California, has plead guilty to breaking into 3,200 women’s email accounts and searching for nude photos of them, which he then posted to the Internet. Bronk allegedly read Facebook profiles looking for answers to Yahoo’s standard security questions. He was able to find nude or semi-nude photos from 172 women. Creeps: they walk among us. [PC World]

Sarah Palin Lashes Out At Media After Gabrielle Giffords Shooting In Tucson

Sarah Palin has lashed out at critics who say her at-times violence-tinged political rhetoric influenced Jared Lee Loughner, the man who shot 14 people this weekend in Tuscon, Arizona, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. “After the shocking tragedy, I listened puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements of those attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event,” Palin said. “President Reagan said we must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions. Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing district used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their first amendment rights at campaign rallies, and not with those who proudly voted in the last election.” Keep reading »

Ooh, Burn! Bristol Palin Calls Out Her Mom On Twitter UPDATE: It’s A Hoax

As Jessica said, “Baby bear isn’t gettin’ any freshwater salmon tonight.” Wonder what the story is here… [BuzzFeed]

Bristol Palin Buys A House In Arizona

Warning! Warning! Bristol Palin is encroaching on the continental United States. Alaska’s most famous single mom recently paid $172,000 for a five-bedroom house in Maricopa, Arizona, which is 30 miles from Phoenix. The house was foreclosed last January, flipped by a real estate developer and sold to Mama Grizzly’s cub one month ago. TMZ speculates Bristol may be attending Arizona State University to study broadcast journalism, possibly at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Did she use one of her “Dancing With The Stars” clips for entrance? Or submit one of her many Facebook rants as an entrance essay? Sigh. The only thing more depressing than the fact that 20-year-old Bristol Palin paid for a $172,000 house in cash is the fact the teen mom likely paid for it with money earned lecturing others about abstinence.

Sarah Palin Hunts Rudolph? Two Late-Night Show Variations On The Same Idea

Oh that crazy Conan. On his show last night, he played this video—in which Sarah Palin kills Rudolph. Maybe it’s the obvious reindeer-inspired gag but, as Deadline and PopEater point out—Jimmy Kimmel did essentially the same thing on his show. Check it out, after the jump. Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Calls Herself A Feminist, Promptly Renounces Feminism

I know nothing will put some warm, fuzzy Christmas cheer in your heart like listening to Bill O’Reilly and Sarah Palin discuss feminism. So let’s dive right in and hear what Mama Grizzly has to say, shall we? Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Sarah Palin Says There’s A Double Standard For Crying

Sometimes there’s just so much lady news that I have to do a weekend post in addition to my regular daily post. So for your enjoyment, here is “Today’s Lady News: The Weekend Edition.” Damn, I feel all fancy, like NPR!

  • Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin addressed soon-to-be Speaker of the House John Boehner’s habit for tearing up and rightly pointed out that there is a double standard when it comes to men and women politicians crying. “I don’t know if a woman would be given a pass necessarily,” she told “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts. “I respect John Boehner because he has worn his feelings on his sleeve on things that are so important to him … and I give him that pass, too. But that’s one of those things where a double standard certainly is applied. I’m sure if I got up there and did a speech and I started breaking down and cried about how important it is to me that our children and our grandchildren are provided great opportunities, I’m sure that I would be knocked a little bit for that.” [ABC News]
