Recovering 30 Rock addicts who tuned in to watch Tina Fey on Inside the Actors’ Studio on Wednesday received an extra, maverick-sized surprise. Responding to host James Lipton’s request to interview Sarah Palin, Fey reprised her famous Palin impression and busted out a series of gems such as “you know, I believe that if everybody had guns, then there would be fewer guns in the stores.” I never imagined I’d miss ...

Its probably no surprise that rapper Snoop Dogg (Lion, whatever) wants to legalize marijuana. But he along with over 600 hundred other celebrities and politicians have joined together on the new website Marijuana Majority with the common goal of legalizing weed.
The website focuses on three important poll results showing Americans agree with the celebrities:
Post/ABC found 81% support for allowing medical marijuana
Time/CNN ... Read More

The GOP has been incredibly disconnected from women lately, but there’s one area where that could be a good thing: the vice presidential debates.
Vice President Joe Biden is a sassy bitch. When someone says something stupid, he chuckles and shakes his head in a way that makes me want to hang my head in vicarious shame for the offender, or point and laugh, depending on who we’re talking about.
And bless his sassy bitch heart, but ... Read More

To me, feminism is an all-encompassing word. It’s about inclusion. But it seems not everyone agrees.
In a piece on The Christian Post’s website, Sarah Hamaker declares that there’s a new feminist out there. One who “embraces Christianity” and has “a calling in politics.” It’s no surprise that she references Michele ... Read More

Laurel Thatcher Ulrich is credited with the famous quote, “Well-behaved women seldom make history,” which is a phrase that has since become a slogan of just about everyone and their grandma. (There’s even a coffee mug floating around the BUST office with the quote.) But at 92nd Street Y’s recent talk on Women in Politics moderator Alison Stewart, host of PBS’s Need to Know, asked authors Nora Ephron and Rebecca ... Read More

The Republicans made a good choice with Sarah Palin. That’s the point Anna Holmes (editor of Jezebel.com) and Rebecca Traister (author of the forthcoming Big Girls Don’t Cry: The Election That Changed Everything for American Women) consider in their op-ed in the New York Times this past Sunday. And it’s an interesting one to consider: what ladies do the Democrats have? For the group that is supposed to be more liberal and ... Read More

So it seems that Sarah Palin has her "Mama Grizzlies" all riled up. I've really tried as of late to just tune her out because if I don't, my blood tends to boil and my eyes get blurry and I can't think or speak clearly or intelligently. Which is why I say thank heavens for the blog, or else I'd actually have to think before I spoke as opposed to easily reading over what I type.
In any case, not sure if you have seen this, but here is the ... Read More

Lady blog Jezebel has really gone off the rails on this one. After writing a piece about the supposed female oppression in the workplace at The Daily Show, bloggers and finally the women of the Daily Show themselves disagreed. But it was an article in Slate that set off this headline: Jealous Bitches Start Face-Clawing Catfight! This could've been funny if the rest of the article was, but it wasn't. Instead it was a litany of whiny ... Read More

Hearing Sarah Palin talk about why women can be anti-choice feminists has been pretty terrifying. Her message, that women can and should be expected to be have children they don't actually want, is totes ridic. But her supporting argument, suggesting that it's anti-feminist to accuse women of being unable to handle this load, is a bit trickier. Answering is like trying to respond to the "when did you stop beating your wife" ... Read More

In case you were wondering what the hoo-hah is going on with this embracing of feminism via Sarah Palin, Slate’s “Double X” columnist Amanda Marcotte has put together an overview of the next wave of feminism: anti-feminism. Read up, ladies!
