EMILY's List Gala: Hillary Clinton Hosts a Funeral for the Glass Ceiling

EMILY's List, a PAC that seeks to elect pro-choice female Democrats to office, threw a hell of a 30th anniversary party in Washington on Tuesday night. I was there.

Hillary Clinton Also Used a Private, Homemade Email Server

Hillary Clinton is already in a great deal of hot water for using a personal email address to conduct official business during her time as Secretary of State. Our brother site Gawker reported yesterday that two other top State Department officials also used personal emails. And now, the Associated Press reports, it… » 3/04/15 1:10pm Wednesday 1:10pm

Hillary Clinton Probably Used an AOL Account to Conduct Gov't Business

Hillary Rodham Clinton may be in a whole heap of trouble now that news has leaked that the former Secretary of State used a personal email account — possibly CoOlHiLl27@aol.com — to conduct her government business and never had an official state department address during her tenure.

Jeb Bush Not Happy for Gorgeous, Legally Wedded Lesbians 

Jeb Bush is making all the noises necessary to run for president, which as a Republican nominee means suddenly coming out as sternly anti-gay. In an interview with the Miami Herald this weekend, he said he was disappointed a Florida state court had ruled to allow gay marriage. In 2012, Jeb suggested gay parents could… » 1/05/15 6:00pm 1/05/15 6:00pm

70 Years of First Ladies Standing in Front of Christmas Trees 

It's an American tradition that every year, no matter how dismal, the White House invites a bunch of photographers to capture some feel-good seasonal snapshots of the president's pad decorated for the holidays. Generally, it falls to the First Lady to doll herself up, park herself in front of the tree, and smile for… » 12/23/14 6:20pm 12/23/14 6:20pm

Oh My God, This Song for Hillary Clinton Is Beyond Awful

The GOP gets a lot of (well-earned) grief around here for abysmal ads, such as the classic that framed the Florida governor's race as a Say Yes to the Dress episode. But this music video trumpeting Hillary Clinton for 2016 might be the worst piece of political persuasion I've ever seen. It is fucking terrible. » 12/04/14 12:50pm 12/04/14 12:50pm
