    Caitlyn Jenner is changing lives -- one lipstick at a time. MAC Cosmetics announced Friday that it is partnering with the E! star, making her the most high-profile transgender star to get a major cosmetics contract. "She has come to represent courage, fearlessness, honesty and compassion -- characteristics long-prized and celebrated by MAC," the company said in a statement.
  • White House Tries To Put Lipstick On The ObamaCare Enrollment Pig

    **SNIP** But even if enrollment tops 12 million, that's barely more than had signed up last year - when the administration said 11.7 million had enrolled. Whatever the number is, it's inflated, because the administration counts anyone who went through the process of selecting a plan, not those who have actually paid for it. It would be like Amazon counting anything anyone put in their shopping cart as a sale. Last year, the initial 11.7 million "enrollees" had dropped by 25% once the non-payers got subtracted out. That's why the White House figures that, by the end of next year,...

    Obama’s lipstick on a pig remarks are no longer just insults hurled at his closest rivals, but of a kind that exposes the U.S. presidency to open ridicule Careful, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi: You are talking billions of dollars in nuclear trade and deepening defense ties in hopes of an enduring strategic relationship with a president who speaks from both sides of his mouth.

    Next time you apply make-up, remember the fairness creams could contain mercury and the lipsticks may come packed with chromium, which can cause cancer. A new study by the Centre for Science and Environment's (CSE) Pollution Monitoring Lab (PML) has found mercury in 44 per cent of all the fairness creams it tested, while chromium was found in almost 50 per cent and nickel in 43 per cent of the lipstick samples tested.

    Four hundred of the nation's most popular lipsticks contained trace levels of lead when tested recently by the federal government, confirming similar results of earlier analyses but on a much wider scale and at higher levels than previously detected. Five L'Oreal and Maybelline lipsticks, owned by L'Oreal USA, ranked among the top 10 most contaminated brands, according to the analysis by the Food and Drug Administration. Two Cover Girl and two NARS lipsticks also landed in top 10 slots, as did one from Stargazer.

    Right after Palin captured the adoration of a huge segment of America, Obama used his classless misogynistic expression, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.” Even his audience of Liberal faithful was shocked into silence, Hussein realized he had dropped a bomb, a stink bomb. Of course he used the standard line that people were misreading his line that it was a common expression and that he loved this country too much to let the campaign slide into the gutter. This seemed to console his women voters and the supposedly forward thinking, gender neutral,...

    A public school mistress who was “pressured” into a lesbian affair by a 15-year-old pupil will be allowed to continue see the girl after she is released from a 15-month jail term. Helen Goddard - a music teacher nicknamed “the jazz lady” by pupils - befriended the teenager over coffee after lessons and their relationship eventually became sexual. Goddard wept as she was jailed today at London’s Southwark Crown Court and placed on the sex offenders' register. But Judge Anthony Pitts decided not to grant a prosecution request that she be banned from seeing the teenager for five years. [SNIP]...

    Scientists from Leeds University have discovered that the world was ruled by pig-like creatures for a million years. The “Age of the Porcine” occurred around 260 million years ago - when the creatures called lystrosaurs were the few survivors of a mass extinction. Nearly 95 pct of the living species were destroyed by a series of volcanic eruptions leaving behind pigs in a “golden age” of no predators. They had Earth’s abundant plant-life all to themselves. “We can only speculate on how lystrosaurs survived while the rest died. Perhaps its ability to burrow and hibernate protected it from the worst...

    Much of Barack Obama's political success can be traced to a database listing contact information for millions of people, a tool that has proved invaluable in raising record sums of money and organizing a national volunteer network. Now Obama's presidential campaign is increasingly using the list to beat back media messages it does not like, calling on supporters to flood radio and television stations when those opposed to him run anti-Obama ads or appear on talk shows. It did so as recently as Monday night, when it orchestrated a massive stream of complaints on the phone lines of Tribune Co.-owned...

    The latest overblown irrelevance in a presidential campaign full of them was the oh-so-big flap over Barack Obama's not very original comment about pigs and lipstick. ("You can put lipstick on a pig. It's still a pig.") The McCain-Palin campaign - or is it the Palin-McCain campaign by now? - immediately took vast umbrage at his remark, accusing Sen. Obama of, natch, sexism. Even if he was only taking a jab at the opposition's policies, not its vice-presidential candidate. But forget context; this is a presidential campaign in literal-minded, post-literate, politics-all-the-time America. Every opening, however small or false, will be...

He has thrown the stones of political correctness for years, and now some of them are being thrown back at him. Maybe he'll learn something from it. Here's the background.

Answering her own question, she pointed at her mouth and said, “Lipstick.” It was a great moment, and the...

    For more than 40 years, the mainstream media has chosen to define “feminism” and “the woman’s agenda” through a leftist prism. Then came Sarah Palin. In part one of this series, outlining the three struggles raging behind the presidential campaign, we looked at the ongoing populist rebellion against the entrenched elite, namely, the media. And now, we see another kind of rebellion: the insurgency against the liberal orthodoxy of feminism. And in recent years, such prominent conservative women as Ann Coulter, Laura Schlessinger, Laura Ingraham, Michele Malkin, Mary Matalin, and Condoleezza Rice have all become non-liberal role models.

    Most conservatives decry the ‘bread and circuses’ atmosphere of modern politics, principally because the consistent focus on meaningless pursuits takes the citizens’ focus away from the important issues … even crises … that must be considered, and faced, if we are to remain a free society.

    Obama Smears Himself and Ends up In The “Pits” No matter how Obama has tried to conceal his “pig in lipstick," comment, the smear remaining is on Obama. And like all good lipsticks, it will not wipe off easily. There are three issues to be recognized when analyzing his comments of Sept. 9. 1) The contemptuous statements made at that appearance cannot be denied as being anything other than designed and scripted to be offensive to Palin and McCain. Lest anyone foolishly consider that Obama might simply have made another gaffe, the proof of this actually being a calculated remark...

    Earlier today, Investor's Business Daily posted a cartoon from their resident genius, Michael Ramirez, which perfectly captured the essence of Barry Obama's "lipstick on a pig" comment. Copyright restrictions do not allow us to display the toon on Free Republic, but as of the time of this writing, you can view the Mr. Ramirez' artwork HERE. Later this afternoon, IBD deleted the cartoon from their website, and as you can see HERE, it is no longer listed in Ramirez' archives. Obviously, the heat's on IBD from the mavens of political correctness. In my opinion, the only remaining questions now are...

    In a presidential race in which unexpected factors like lipsticks and pigs have driven questions about sexism and feminism, a central question remains: What do women want? This is especially true now that Alaska's Republican Gov. Sarah Palin, a self-described hockey mom, is a major player in the race - and is shaping its coverage and its issues in surprising ways. "Palin was incredibly clever political strategy," said Rosemary Camposano, spokeswoman for, a nonpartisan campaign group founded to support Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential effort that now is working to advance women's political issues. "It shows the Republicans asking...

    The title pretty much sums it up: “What’s the Difference Between Palin and Muslim Fundamentalists? Lipstick.” For the last eight years, as far as some on the left have been concerned, George W. Bush has been Hitler. Now Sarah Palin is bin Laden. Welcome to the new populist “progressivism,” brought to you by Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, Keith Olbermann, and Juan Cole....

    RUSH: Last night, Late Show with David Letterman, interviewed The Messiah, Barack Obama, the Most Merciful. Letterman says, "Let me ask you a question here. Have you ever actually put lipstick on a pig?" OBAMA: The answer would be no. (rimshot) But I think it might be fun to try. (rimshot) LETTERMAN: I know the reaction to that was you were overreacting. You stand by that? OBAMA: Absolutely. Look, this is, uh -- if you, uh -- this is sort of silly season in politics. (rimshot) Not that there's a non-silly season in politics. (rimshot) LETTERMAN: That's right. OBAMA: But...
