"Political Animals" indeed: Cat elected mayor in rural Alaska

Article: "Political Animals" indeed: Cat elected mayor in rural Alaska

As the new USA Network miniseries Political Animals is reminding us, politics can get rather catty. Clearly based on a highly fictionalized version of Hillary Clinton’s life, the drama is full of snappy lines, strong women and, of course, Sigourney Weaver as Hillary stand-in Elaine Barrish. The claws come when she spars with Susan Berg, a reporter determined to climb back into the spotlight while fighting the snark-laden world of Washington politics. We always enjoy seeing a good cat fight in the political arena, but let’s not forget the real cats in politics.

Top 10 women changing the world

Article: Top 10 women changing the world

Famous people aren’t all bad. In fact, some of them, despite their shortage of time and debilitating desire to be caught on film doing weird, immoral things, actually dedicate their time to helping other people instead of themselves. The trend of celebrities getting involved in charity work seemed to spin out of control once Angelina became such a saint, and now it seems like it’s another Hollywood trend to get involved in making the world a better place. But what can we say? If they’re doing it, they’re doing it – who cares if it’s all for good press?

When Hillary winks, the world notices

Article: When Hillary winks, the world notices

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton graced these pages back in April thanks to “Texts from Hillary”. She’s relevant again here — not because of her involvement in the Syrian conflict or questions about her possible presidential ambitions to which she provides ambiguous answers — but because The Atlantic hilariously notes that when Clinton winks she resembles Lucille, “the alcoholic, sardonic matriarch of the Bluth family” from Arrested Development. Check out the full photo gallery here.

Article: 10 thoughts on the separation of Al and Tipper Gore

Really? The Gores? The couple most likely to make it to old age on a rocker-for-two on the front porch?!
Not the Clintons? We have to admit, it’s a little refreshing to know that even such public marriages can have their secrets and mysteries.
We now feel truly bad about the number of times we made fun of the Gores’ ew-Mom-and-Dad-are-kissing smooch at the 2000 Democratic Convention.

We thought about adding John McCain to the Winners list, as his loss on Tuesday assured that he won’t have the unenviable task of fixing the colossal clusterf@&% left behind by the Bush administration.

We are now in the most intense part of the most intense campaign season I have ever seen in my short 23-year long lifespan. In January, people were saying that Hillary Clinton would be the democratic nominee, and that John McCain’s campaign was dead in the water. In March, while Obama’s star was rising fast,…

Give Joe His Sixpack

Article: Give Joe His Sixpack

You could make a strong argument that the presidential candidate with the greatest influence on the current tone of the election is the one who is no longer running. Hillary Clinton, despite her faults, courted the middle class more effectively than either ticket is currently doing. Don’t get me wrong—both the Republicans and the Democrats…
