We are a country that sometimes doesn’t seem to know what words mean before we yell them at each other. More
Topic: Barack Obama
As you may know, there’s been some talk floating around that Anna Wintour may be up for a US ambassadorship, either to France or to her native UK. Many people think she’s under qualified for the job because running a fashion magazine is a stupid girl job, while Anna herself has said via her reps that she’s “very happy” at Vogue. Which is a shame, because I think it would be a great move for both Anna herself and America in general. Here are seven reasons Anna Wintour should be a US ambassador. More
Glenn Beck, the loveable scamp, hasn’t been around much lately–ever since Fox dropped his special brand of ham-fisted tear-soaked hatemongering, he retired to a state-of-the-art bomb shelter deep in a Colorado mountain so he could swim in his manmade lake of precious gold doubloons. He emerged from that lake recently, however, in protest of a community college art exhibit. More
I think, as we gaze at this last picture of Mitt Romney taken outside a gas station, it’s time to say our goodbyes. Goodbye, Mitt Romney. Goodbye. It is also a time to speculate upon things he might be thinking. For instance: More
As you may recall, Peter Brant II caused quite the kerfuffle yesterday when he posted a terrible joke about killing President Obama to Instagram, then proceeded to be super terrible to anyone who dared to criticize him. Now, he has (basically, pretty much) apologized for what he termed his “petty stupid humor.” Hooray? More
Many were informative, some were hilarious and others were abysmal. More
So I’m not voting for Barack Obama. I’ll tell you more about that decision in a few days, after the election hysteria has died down and people are less likely to scream at me. That said, it’s not like he hasn’t done a single thing I agree with during his tenure as president. Hence, in the interest of being nice to my Democrat friends (with whom I share many ideals) on a day that’s important to them, I’m going to talk about one of them, and that’s the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. (Warning: I am also going to critique its shortcomings.) More
So, what could possibly help in the eleventh hour, with Mitt Romney‘s uphill battle looking so steep?
…Prayer. A metric fuckton of prayer. More
I want you to know I spent the morning obsessing over this.
I normally wear dresses – because I’m not a farmer – but I thought, if I show up in some sort of shift dress and pearls like I wear every day, people are going to think I am voting for Mitt Romney. I live in New York. It’s possible that they would just turn on me, like in The Bacchae. More importantly, I was not going to stand there in line for an hour or however long it takes with people thinking I was voting Romney. I just wouldn’t. I wouldn’t even if I was voting for Romney.

How much do you love pearls? Also, how much do you love voting? Voting will not get you jewelry, but it will probably get you a little flag pin, and maybe a free ice cream cone at Ben and Jerry’s. Also, it will help you identify more with one of these first ladies. Which one do you identify most with? It says a bunch about you. More
This pretty cool dude would like you to go out and vote. More
Lena Dunham’s greatest talent may be self-satire, but sometimes it’s hard to tell when she’s employing it and when she’s being sincere. (Or at least sincerely trying to be funny, and not trying to be funny in a meta, ‘I know this is not actually funny’ way.) More
Get ready to get teary. More
