I took a day off yesterday from reading about crazy New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, but I was forced to acknowledge the freaky couple again this morning while I was reading the New York Times (in print, of course!). Oh! Instead of sexting with just one woman a […]

I felt like an era ended when former New York City mayor Ed Koch died at 88 on Friday. When Koch became New York City’s mayor in 1978, I had just turned 10; his third and final term ended on Dec. 31, 1989, eight days after I turned 22.  He was the mayor of my […]

MrB and I went to Washington yesterday for an inauguration dinner. We didn’t see the First Couple — Beyonce and Jay-Z — in person, nor did we see Barack and Michelle Obama, but we still had a good time.

I’m amused by Happyplace.com‘s collection of anti-ObamaCare, pro-Canada tweets. Empty threats are so annoying. Can’t we pass a law that says that anyone who vows to move to Canada (“#forrealthough”) has to GO? Immediately? Like as soon as you say or write it,  a moving van pulls up in front of your house. I know […]

Last night, MrB and I went to a screening of the HBO movie Game Change, which premieres on HBO on Saturday. The movie is based on the book of the same name, written by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin about the 2008 presidential campaign. The book covers Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, the […]

I’m sure all of my fashion-obsessed readers are eagerly following the news of Europe’s deal to reduce Greece’s debt and stem the financial crisis that has shaken the euro. The Wall Street Journal’s front page story, headlined, “EU Forges Greek Bond Deal,” explains that European leaders “had reached agreement with private banks on a ‘voluntary’ […]

Hallelujah! Michelle Obama has spoken! And she’s politely told the world to fuck off, which makes her my kind of lady. In case you haven’t been keeping up on the tempests in teapots that pass for news these days, Obama wore an Alexander McQueen gown to a state dinner for President Hu Jintao of China […]

Hillary Clinton sashayed over to the United Nations on Sunday wearing a cheap-ass-looking hair clip, meaning she’s again in the middle of a fashion-related uproar. Search online for “Hillary Clinton hair clip” and you’ll see about 700 related articles. Some peeps are saying the clip is a fashion crime. Other peeps are outraged that the […]
