[Michelle's Momma] Don't Practice Santeria/ [She] Ain't Got No Crystal…

You cannot make this shit up. Wonkette cracked on a birther's hastily written Townhall screed which accused Michelle Obama's mother of practicing witchcraft at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The birther wrote back, apparently trying to hit a triple-crazy-score. » 8/20/09 4:40pm 8/20/09 4:40pm

Oh Jesus, Don't, Like, Most People Suffer Existential Crises When They…

You know how yesterday I said What Happened was a good name for the Scott McClellan book? Yeah well WTF would have obviously been better. So anyway: Day Two of Scott McClellan WTF patrol. This morning he went on Today and seemed pretty fucking sincere. Of course, high-minded idealists such as the New York Times » 5/29/08 10:00am 5/29/08 10:00am

Can Reggie Love Hold His Roofies?

Yesterday in Crappy Hour we totally labored over an epic piece on shifting philosophies inside the jihadist movement, but all the regular readers wanted to do was objectify the opposite sex, so in case you missed it, here's a link again to that 9-page photo album of Barack Obama's somewhat handsome aide Reggie Love.… » 5/28/08 12:45pm 5/28/08 12:45pm

"I Know: Barf." Truer Words Were Never Syndicated, Peggy!

"I know: Barf," writes Peggy Noonan in today's Journal, in the only good thing about having to do this crap the Friday before Memorial Day weekend and after another night of pointless inebriation. "One wants to be sympathetic to Mrs. Clinton at this point, if for no other reason than to show one's range," she continues,… » 5/23/08 10:00am 5/23/08 10:00am

Hillary Explains How Obama Is Sort Of Like An African Dictator

Hillary Clinton just compared the disenfranchisement of voters in those two states that chose to disenfranchise their primary voters to the disenfranchisement of voters in Zimbabwe. Thanks Hills! I thought I drank away all my capacity for nuance last night but I can still sorta see how that might piss some people off.… » 5/22/08 10:00am 5/22/08 10:00am

Geraldine Ferraro: You = What The Media Needs To Start Ignoring

GODDAMMIT GERALDINE, you just had to drag me back down into your withering wackjob abyss. I said I was never going to post about the Clinton campaign and sexism, since more than 12 out of 12 Clinton campaign surrogates agree that's not why she lost to Obama (despite that, congrats on winning Kentucky yesterday!), and… » 5/21/08 10:00am 5/21/08 10:00am

Hillary And American Sexism…Really Guys? Still?

On Sunday, George Will wrote a column arguing that Hillary's loss is its own proof that sexism wasn't the reason she lost. Hmmm, illogical-sounding! And yet compelling nonetheless. Because thanks to TNR I had just read a collection of thirty-something thoughts culled from more than a dozen anonymous emails from Clinton … » 5/20/08 10:00am 5/20/08 10:00am

Meet Italian Cabinet Member Mara Carfagna, A Woman Of Many, Um, Parts

Usually when my little brother sends me tips they have to do with the idiocy of Bush or organized religion or... well anyway, to get to the point, I was somewhat baffled when he sent me a link to this picture on a German website. I clicked about as far as here before I was just like "We're all always searching for new… » 5/16/08 4:40pm 5/16/08 4:40pm

Hillary = Not Exactly The Loser Here, People!

You've all been sending us this think piece from today's Washington Post about how everyone feels so sorry for Hillary Clinton because she reminds men of their first wives. AYE DE MI ENVIA LOS BONERKILLERS! (BOEHNERKILLERS?) So yeah, I Nexis-ed that, and guess what? Republican pollster Frank Luntz said this TWELVE… » 5/16/08 10:00am 5/16/08 10:00am

Your Jewish Mom Is Going To Have A Crush On Obama

Life, an esteemed Glamocracy editor said to me today, "is a suicidal act. It is just a more masochistic suicide than average." What differentiates us, then, is nothing but the barely visible variations of degree to which we flatter ourselves into thinking we are the navigators of that masochism, when really our parents… » 5/13/08 10:00am 5/13/08 10:00am

Barack Obama Doesn't Look Too Psyched About That Beer

Fifty thousand people are dead or close to it in Burma, and Barack Obama can state unequivocally that he does not drink designer beer. Seventy five percent of American adults will at some point be impoverished. The average American car owner really must save $30 this summer. Chris Hitchens believes Barack Obama may be… » 5/06/08 10:00am 5/06/08 10:00am
