Stephen Colbert Rant on Hillary's GrandmaGate is Very Cathartic

Now that the nation has had a serious(ly fucking stupid) conversation about whether a woman can be both president and a grandmother, America can move on to more pressing matters: Was this pregnancy planned especially to boost Hillary's chances? » 4/22/14 2:30pm Yesterday 2:30pm

Meet the Press Ponders Whether a Grandma Can Run for President

On yesterday's special Easter 420 edition of Meet the Press, host David Gregory continued to harp on the bored pundit nonquestion of whether or not the birth of Hillary Clinton's grandchild will impact her decision to run or not run for President in 2016.

Hillary Clinton's Memoir Hard Choices Is Ready for Its Close-Up

One day after announcing that she is a grandma-to-be, Hillary Clinton has taken the next step in her “possible” presidential run by announcing her new book title. As much as I look forward to the possibility of a female president, I do wish she hadn’t chosen such a VEEP-friendly name for her memoir, but we’ll take what … » 4/18/14 10:40am Friday 10:40am

SHOEGAZI: Truthers Think Hillary Planned the Shoe-Throwing Incident

Last Thursday, a Hillary Clinton speech was interrupted by an airborne shoe hoisted by a Alison Michelle Ernst, a woman with a documented history of erratic behavior. Seems like a pretty open-and-shut case: unstable person behaves anti-socially. The end. But because Hillary Clinton is involved, and in the eyes of… » 4/15/14 12:00pm 4/15/14 12:00pm

Hillary Clinton's Shoe Attacker Is Obsessed With the Aurora Shooter

Last week Alison Michelle Ernst was arrested for chucking her shoe at Hillary Clinton who was speaking at a Las Vegas event (and who flawlessly made a quip and continued unfazed).

Mike Huckabee Thinks Lady Candidates Should Be Treated With 'Chivalry'

2016 is right around the corner, election-wise, which means the breathless profiles of potential presidential candidates are upon us.

US Not Ready For a Woman President, Says Woman Who Ran For President

Minnesota Congressman Michele Bachmann has issued her edict on the chances Hillary Clinton's theoretical campaign would have during a theoretical 2016 election: not good. Mostly because America simply isn't ready for a female President. I bet the schmucks who donated to Bachmann's 2012 Presidential campaign feel pretty … » 2/20/14 1:30pm 2/20/14 1:30pm

Political Journalists Are Forever On Bad Mom Patrol

There's been lots of political yammer (yammer because it's definitely not dignified enough to merit being called "discussion" but it's not yet loud enough to be called "yelling") in recent days and weeks about women who have political ambition. People are concerned, really. Concerned that maybe the women who have political … » 2/18/14 3:40pm 2/18/14 3:40pm

This New York Times Magazine Cover of Hillary Clinton Is...Interesting

On Thursday, New York Times Washington editor David Joachim posted the first photo of the cover of this Sunday's Times Magazine.
