When Sarah Palin addressed the nation last week at the RNC, the first female Republican VP candidate introduced a topic to the campaign I doubt most people ever saw coming. This week, it isn’t off-shore drilling, the war in Iraq, or even abortion rights that people are talking about, it’s lipstick. Thanks to Palin, we now know it’s what separates the hockey moms from the pit bulls, but as Obama reminded us a few days ago, lipstick won’t stop a pig from being a pig, a remark that’s prompted a heated debate and even brand new political ads. Surely, with all this focus on lipstick, it’s just a matter of time before someone comes out with one named after Palin. But why stop with just her? Why not introduce a whole lipstick line for Campaign ’08 ? I can see it now — we’ll have… Keep reading »
We all know sexism is alive and well in America. Hollywood’s seemingly endless celebration of the chubby, schlubby, slacker dude is sexist as hell, given that chubby, schlubby, slacker girls get nowhere in Tinseltown, least of all the big screen. And yes, much of the media’s coverage of Hillary Clinton’s campaign was sexist too—and I wasn’t even a Hillary supporter, so this isn’t just a P.U.M.A.’s bitterness talking.
The latest accusation of sexism in the media comes from Governor Sarah Palin, the Vice Presidential nominee for the McCain campaign. Her supporters, her spokespeople, and conservative commentators like Bill O’Reilly assert that she is the target of sexist smear campaign. This is surprising for two reasons: 1) O’Reilly has consistently pooh-poohed claims of sexism in the past and 2) wasn’t it only a few months ago that Palin said Clinton should “stop whining” about sexism herself?

The Presidential Election is mere weeks away! It used to be that t-shirts were the only way you could show your support for a candidate, or just the electoral process in general, but nowadays everyone from Etsy vendors to Forever 21 is selling political related accessories — rings, neclaces, tote bags — with cool graphics and arty pizazz. Check out ten picks after the jump! Keep reading »
Whether Sarah Palin is a politician you already support or don’t support, this video from Current’s Sarah Haskins (Sarah, I am still waiting for you to return that note I sent you, where I asked “Will you be my best friend? Check ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.) is hilarious. Will Palin help McCain seize the P.A.N.T.H.E.R. vote? Guess we’ll find out in November! Keep reading »
The Governor of Alaska and Republican VP hopeful, Sarah Palin, has more drama in her life than the new 90210. So before Lifetime makes her biopic, we decided to cast this lady’s dramatic life story in the hopes that someday they’ll finally script her personal plight that we’ve all come to know TMI about. So who would star in this juicy little made-for-TV movie? Here’s how we at The Frisky would do it! Now we just have to wait for it to be produced and run in perpetuity next to infomercials for face creams and slicer/dicers…..
Sarah Palin: NRA-supporter Sarah Michelle Gellar is a sharp shooter who grew up around guns….although that’s sorta scary when you realize she was raised in New York City. Needless to say, Gellar’s gotta be a tough broad who is made for TV and now TV movies. Even though SMG is 13 years Palin’s junior, you know they always cast adult women way younger — that’s the Hollywood magic. Plus, Buffy’s gone brunette and if you’d slip a pair of wire frame glasses on her, they’d look like sisters.
The sudden pregnancy of Bristol Palin is a touchy issue that the media has their paws all over. When John McCain announced that Sarah Palin was his running mate late last week, a firestorm of Internet activity erupted as “skeletons” came crawling out of Palin’s closet. But the biggest bombshell — that 17-year-old Bristol is pregnant — has opened up a much larger debate about whether the families of political candidates are always off-limits.
I feel really bad for Bristol Palin. At 17-years-old she’s having to deal with a very adult situation — pregnancy, marriage, and the responsibility of being a first time parent. And she’s having to do it with very bright studio lights shining on her — some are critical of her and her parents, while others are cheering on her decision to keep her baby and marry the father sooner than she might have otherwise. I cannot imagine how she’s doing it and with such serenity. While I feel badly that Bristol has to deal with these new pressures while the media discusses her every move, I do think the media has every right to do so, but only to a point. I don’t think Sarah Palin’s parenting should be questioned and I don’t think Bristol’s pre-marital sexual behavior should be judged, by anyone. But I do think the contrast between Sarah Palin’s personal life and her political ideologies is wide open for discussion, no matter what side of the fence you sit on. Keep reading »
