    Appearing as a panel member on Sunday's Melissa Harris-Perry show, comedienne Margaret Cho wondered why some women are Republicans as she asserted that the GOP is "a party that's so against our rights, our reproductive rights, so many rights in so many ways." Cho also complained that Sarah Palin tries to "beat feminism down," claiming that "Sarah Palin wouldn't exist without feminism." After host Melissa Harris-Perry recounted a GOP drive to appeal to women, Cho wondered: What are women getting out of the GOP? That's, I always question that. I always wonder. This is a party that's so against our...
  • Coulter: Perry won’t live up to expectations, Romney can beat Obama

    On the eve of Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s announcement that he will be a candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, Ann Coulter continues to push for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to enter the competition. On Sean Hannity’s Friday radio show, Coulter, author of “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America,” made a prediction on how she thought things would shake out. But, she remains optimistic on former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s chances against President Barack Obama should Romney be the Republican nominee. “This is a prediction for the future — that Republican primary voters are desperate,...

    Given that Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to announce his presidential candidacy tomorrow, my ears have been especially perked for mentions of his name out here in Iowa. So far, he’s only come up a couple of times, but those comments — not surprisingly — suggest Iowans, at least, feel slighted at his decision to skip the debate and straw poll. They don’t seem to feel obligated to welcome him here when he arrives on Sunday, either.Yesterday, for example, at a pre-debate event hosted by The Heritage Foundation, Rep. Steve King told us he thinks Perry’s decision to declare in...

    The above pertinent, personal, and principled question will not be asked of the new Supreme Court nominee because no senator has the courage, commitment, and character to ask it, although only a fool or fanatic says the question is illegitimate. Even “conservative” Republicans are silent on this matter. Maybe some of them need a spinal transplant to help them take a stand. I don’t expect Democrats to take a stand since they haven’t stood for anything worthwhile since Senator “Scoop” Henry Jackson died Sept. 1, 1983 and Congressman Larry McDonald was killed the same day when Koran Air Flight 077...

    A prominent Philadelphia attorney and Hillary Clinton supporter filed suit this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee. The action seeks an injunction preventing the senator from continuing his candidacy and a court order enjoining the DNC from nominating him next week, all on grounds that Sen. Obama is constitutionally ineligible to run for and hold the office of President of the United States. Phillip Berg, the filing attorney, is a former gubernatorial and senatorial candidate, former chair of the Democratic Party in Montgomery (PA)...

    Sue Wilkinson, 53, a university professor, was married for 17 years before the relationship ended in divorce. She has now been with her female partner, Celia Kitzinger for the same length of time. The couple married in 2003 in Canada, where same-sex unions are legal. Last year they lost a High Court battle to have their marriage recognised in Britain. Ms Wilkinson, Professor of Feminist and Health Studies at Loughborough University, said: “I was never unsure about my sexuality throughout my teens or 20s. I was a happy heterosexual and had no doubts. Then I changed, through political activity and...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) -- Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton outlined a broad economic vision Tuesday, saying it's time to replace an "on your own" society with one based on shared responsibility and prosperity. The Democratic senator said what the Bush administration touts as an "ownership society" really is an "on your own" society that has widened the gap between rich and poor. "I prefer a 'we're all in it together' society," she said. "I believe our government can once again work for all Americans. It can promote the great American tradition of opportunity for all and special privileges for none."...

    Yesterday, Rosie's chief writer, Janette Barber, was allegedly escorted from the building after she was caught drawing moustaches on photographs of Hasselbeck that hang in the "View" studios. The Post's Adam Buckman reports ABC confirmed in a statement only that "photographs at 'The View's' offices were defaced. Rosie O'Donnell was not in the building. ABC Legal and Human Resources are investigating the matter." Barber is an old friend of O'Donnell who worked with her years ago on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show." There were also rumors O'Donnell was so angry after her argument with Hasselbeck that she trashed her dressing room,...

    Media: Crackpot 9/11 conspiracy theories are usually deemed beneath the dignity of network television. With Rosie O'Donnell now promoting the fringe, how embarrassed are ABC and Barbara Walters willing to be? Since joining ABC's all-female talk show "The View" last year, comedienne and film star O'Donnell has exchanged insults with Donald Trump, and been labeled a bigot by Catholic League president William Donohue for what he called her "relentless and profoundly ignorant attacks on the Catholic Church and its teachings." According to O'Donnell "radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam." Famed interviewer Walters, co-host and co-owner of "The...

    ACTOR Lily Tomlin has criticised the United States and Australian governments over their opposition to same-sex marriage, saying everyone should have the right to wed. The openly-gay Hollywood veteran, 66, has been with her female partner, Jane Wagner, a writer and producer, for 35 years. While she and Wagner have no plans to marry, Tomlin feels all people should have the choice. US President George W Bush and Australian Prime Minister John Howard have both spoken out against same-sex marriage, and the Federal Government recently quashed ACT legislation allowing homosexuals to create civil unions. "I am happy for anybody who...

    A STUDENT being asked to remove a T-shirt with a lesbian slogan has sparked a protest at a school in Melbourne's northwest. About 30 students at Strathmore Secondary College last week rallied behind Year 12 classmate Stephanie, 17, after she was told by teachers to change out of the T-shirt for school photos. Stephanie, who did not want her surname published, said she had worn a T-shirt bearing the slogan "Nobody knows I'm a lesbian" to school on several occasions without concerns being raised by staff or fellow students. "I've had it for ages," she said. But she said things...

    When state Sen. Jennifer Veiga made the agonizing decision to come out as Colorado's first openly gay lawmaker, she turned to the Gay and Lesbian Leadership Institute for strategic advice. And when Beth Sebian signed on to help an openly gay candidate for mayor of Brockton, Mass., she attended the institute's campaign seminar and learned what to do if an opponent tries to make an issue of homosexuality. Veiga credits the institute with helping her win re-election in 2002 after she went public; Sebian says the group is helping her avoid mistakes in Jass Stewart's September primary campaign. The 14-year-old...

    NEW YORK, May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Maureen Dowd, following the success of her acclaimed New York Times bestselling book, Bushworld, has turned her lapidary prose and wicked wit to a topic even more incendiary than presidential politics: sexual politics. Dowd's new book, ARE MEN NECESSARY? When Sexes Collide, will be published by G.P. Putnam's Sons on November 8th, 2005. The New York Times columnist who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1999 for saucy and incisive commentary about the roundelay of Bill, Monica, Hillary and Ken Starr, digs into the Y and X files, exploring the mysteries and muddles of sexual...

    I commend Senator Boxer from California for joining with members of the House, most particularly Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones, in raising the objection because it does permit us to air some of these issues, something that I believe is necessary for the smooth functioning of our democracy and the integrity of the most precious right of any citizen, namely, the right to vote. As we look at our election system, I think it's fair to say that there are many legitimate questions about its accuracy, about its integrity, and they are not confined to the state of Ohio. They are questions...

    Sharon Stone blames US President George W Bush for the absence of a lesbian kissing scene in Catwoman - because of the current conservative climate in America. Basic Instinct star Stone, 46, was keen to enjoy an intimate moment with Oscar-winning co-star Halle Berry, but believes a puritanical streak running through the country put an end to any potential girl-on-girl action. Stone says: "Halle's so beautiful and I wanted to kiss her. I said, 'How can you have us in the movie and not have us kiss? That's such a waste.' "That's what you get for having George Bush...
