    It's nice to think that Palin may bring left and right together in mutual scorn.

    But I'm gettin kinda tired of the constant claim that we're all being big ol' meany sexists for calling Palin out for using her sexpot looks as a political tool. “…'White trash, slutty flight attendant, Caribou Barbie' … I do think if somebody called Michelle Obama’s next J Crew look ‘slutty suburbanite’ … it would prompt a very strong reaction from the same people who dismissed it as acceptable when it came to Palin.”

    I’ve been googling all afternoon and I still can’t find a picture of Michelle Obama (BA Princeton, JD Harvard) posing like a slice of cheesecake with her legs oiled.

    This is great! So fun to hear the viewpoints of someone other than the typical political hack. Plus, I'm pretty sure I could listen to that laugh forever. It's surprising how well you two get along! I hope to see more like this in the future!
