This Week We Paid Our Respects To An American (Doll) Icon

  • R.I.P. American Girls original, Samantha Parkington. May you rest in peace with the other overpriced, historically accurate plastic toys in the sky.
  • Another American icon on the decline: Hugh Hefner's bunnies and balls are musty.
  • Speaking of old balls, John McCain mocked women's health in an apocryphal argument against late term abortion.
  • I can't believe we have two more weeks of this. At least the debates are over.
  • Well, at least one contest of note is over this week: a Project Runway winner was declared, and her name rhymes with pee pan.
  • It might burn when you pee if Cosmo gives you a "pear-fection."
