It’s 2013. Let’s end ‘booth babes’ for good

Woman of the future, when perhaps one can present technology and also simultaneously not be objectified.

Scene: It’s the year 2137. The world is doing pretty well. Hoverboards have gone out of style almost as quickly as they came in, surprising a lot of people. UGGs inexplicably live on in popular conceptions of fashion, as do ‘boots with the fur’. The President of what’s left of the United States (the previously large U.S. was reduced to a small island off the coast of Mexico after its population became predominantly, then overwhelmingly brown and insisted the mainland be renamed to “Brownlandia”) is a multi-racial pansexual queer-identifying trans womyn who was elected on campaign promises to bring traditional family values ...

Colbert to Trump, “1Million to the charity of your choice for me to dip my balls in your mouth”

I sat down today to write a really serious post about racism and belonging (like Zerlina did) in light of Donald Trump’s “big announcement” yesterday. But its hard to engage with someone that makes it their business to annoy people or is a Known GOP Blowhard. His brand is to be a jerk–so I think the best reaction to Donald Trump’s bribe to Obama of 5Million dollars to a charity of his choice, is Stephen Colbert’s:

“Nothing would make me happier than to write this check,” said Colbert. “And nothing would make America happier than have something going into your mouth than coming out of it.”

Yep, that’s right. Stephen Colbert offered Trump 1Million dollars to the charity of his choice, if ...

“Creepy anti women laws” shown in perspective.

Comedian and writer Lizz Winstead puts these creepy laws into perspective:

Winstead launched Lady Parts Justice last week in response to GOP coordinated war on women’s bodies, health,  and privacy. Winstead offers more in explanation:

Look, it’s time to stop being polite and start asking, “What the fuck do you think you are trying to pull here?”

It is time to ask, “Why the fuck are men and women who are inexcusably incompetent continually being elected into statehouses, governorships and THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS? And how the fuck is it that this asshole serves on THE SCIENCE COMMITTEE of The House of Representatives?!

ENOUGH.

Women are not faking rape and they don’t have magical powers to deactivate rape sperm. We are not ...

He won’t be the brightest, but he’ll be the whitest

Good morning! Here is the newest political parody from Randy Newman, who I already loved because of Toy Story, but who just won my heart all over again with this one. “I’m Dreaming of a White President” is the pretty great way to start your Thursday morning. Lyrics are below the jump.

What would Erick Erickson’s vagina say?

Erick Erickson, right wing blogger and political commentator, is afraid of ladies that won’t submit to an agenda that destroys every right we’ve earned. So much so, that he called the Democratic National Convention the “Vagina Monologues.” 

He apologized. But not really, he apologized for offending you, you easily offended vagina-haver. He didn’t apologize for his larger transgression, probably because he doesn’t realize it. Erickson is afraid of vaginas, so even when women are  expressing themselves in way that is nothing similar to the style of expression in a popular college play–all he sees is a flying vagina.

But the real question is: How does Erick Erickson even know what the Vagina Monologues are? And, is he secretly a ...

Samantha Bee reports from the RNC: Republicans support Romney’s “choice” on abortion

Predictably, the only coverage of the Republican National Convention I really care about comes from The Daily Show. Following up on her excellent exploration of Bristol Palin’s “rhymes with voice” at the 2008 convention, Samantha Bee talked to some GOPers about “individual liberty” and what they think about Romney’s stance on abortion exceptions.
