Joe Biden Saves a Peripatetic Anecdote with a Crass Sex Joke About His…

Vice Prezzzzz Joe Biden has thrown some rhetorical zingers in the past and, while this may not be the best sex joke he's ever told, the very fact that it isn't the first and only is something to marvel at. America's come a long way since the Mayflower floundered ashore and spilled a bunch of queasy Puritans onto… » 7/11/12 10:25pm 7/11/12 10:25pm

Condoleezza Rice Will Not Run for Vice President No Matter How Much We…

Mitt Romney and all of his rich Republican friends got together this past weekend in Utah to pal around and talk about the things rich people talk about. (Horses, horses, horses!) At this gathering, Condoleezza Rice gave a speech that very much impressed all of the big wigs, and immediately everyone was desperate for… » 6/26/12 9:00pm 6/26/12 9:00pm

Mitt Romney Seeks an 'Incredibly Boring White Guy' to be His Vice…

SNL: "I Believe Marriage Is Meant To Be A Sacred Institution Between…

I… » 10/05/08 10:15am 10/05/08 10:15am

Todd Palin: Everything America Wants In A "First Dude"

With all the talk of moose hunting and unwed teen pregnancy in the week since McCain picked Sarah Palin as his VP, the media almost forgot to address the biggest question raised by having a woman on a major ticket — what would we call her husband if she became president?! Yesterday, before Todd Palin's first national… » 9/05/08 5:40pm 9/05/08 5:40pm

Barack Obama, and Antici...pation

  • Yeah, he still ain't telling. Probably tomorrow. [Washington Post]
  • He did reportedly call all the losers last night. No one's admitting anything, though. [CNN]
  • Random Texas Congressman Chet Edwards — who Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been pointing out for months — is apparently shortlisted now, though, and gave a cute press…
