Values Voter Summit Made the Internet Seem Drunk—and Extra Homophobic—This Week

The crew of the Value Voter Summit, AKA, the crazy pants.

Did your Facebook feed feel rip-roaring wasted this week? Well, ladies and gentlemen, it’s nothing to be alarmed over: It’s simply the 2014 Values Voter Summit, which brings droves of Tea Party-drinking, Sarah Palin-loving ultra conservatives out of the closet to discuss their utterly (ir)relevant views on all things conservative and anti-gay.

In other words, it is essentially like watching Saturday Night Live every day. Every. Single. Day. Of. The. Week. But these people are serious. Read more »

Everything You Need to Know About Who Will Join Whoopi and Rosie on The View?

"Don't even think about bringing back Hasselbeck."

“Don’t even think about bringing back Hasselbeck.”

After last week’s announcement that the ever-opinionated Rosie O’Donnell will be returning to daytime television’s The View, there’s been heavy speculation about who will join her and Whoopi Goldberg on the roundtable. Joy Behar, one of the former co-hosts, suggested on an interview with Don Lemon of CNN that the show is “going for fireworks rather than camaraderie.”  And, boy, if any of the rumors are true, there will be explosions!

We rounded up some of the most talked-about co-host rumors, plus added in a few picks of our own. In short, it’s everything you need to know about who’ll sit next to Whoopi and Rosie (and what kind of shit-talking will start from day one of the new season.)



Sarah Palin, Yawn, Wants to Protect Christmas

Sarah Palin gestures during a book signing, Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013 in Bethlehem, Pa. The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee signed copies of her new book, "Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas". Palin chose to start her book tour near a city with obvious connections to the holiday. Bethlehem was founded by Moravians on Christmas Eve, 1741. Its nickname is the "Christmas City" and the city draws many tourists during the holiday season. (AP Photo/The Express-Times, Matt Smith)

In what may go down as one of the most transparent marketing gimmicks of all time, Sarah Palin traveled to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, this week on a mission to save Christmas from the heathens. The former governor of Alaska and bête noire of the 2008 presidential election was joined by her perennially devoted husband, Todd, at the Barnes and Noble bookstore in Easton (which, if you’re keeping score, is not Bethlehem) on Tuesday night for the formal launch of her new book Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.

I’m still waiting for my copy of Good Tidings to arrive, but early reviews of the book describe it as a critique of the secularization, homogenization and consumerization of the holiday season, and, according to publisher HarperCollins, a challenge to the “politically correct Scrooges seeking to take Christ out of Christmas.”

Do the Words “Senator Palin” Excite You?

Senator Sarah Palin? Get used to the notion; it could happen. Mark Begich, a Democrat, is currently the junior senator from the great state of Alaska. On the Alaskan endangered species list, a Democratic senator beats out the humpbacked whale and the short-tailed albatross. Alaskan Republicans will be tripping over themselves to get the nomination and run against Begich in 2014.

Sarah Palin Headlines Terri Schiavo Fundraiser in Philly Tonight

The first time Sarah Palin came to Philadelphia as a national figure, back in 2008, she went to a Flyers game and got booed. Loudly, magnificently booed. In retrospect, it’s difficult to believe anybody expected a different reaction: Philly sports fans had a national reputation to uphold—booing is what we do!—and in any case, this city in 2008 was always going to be Barack Obama’s town. Palin, then John McCain’s vice-presidential candidate, never had much of a chance for a warm welcome, did she? Read more »

No, Sarah Palin Isn’t Going To Work For Al Jazeera

Politico reports: “The Washington Post has erroneously reported that Sarah Palin, the former vice presidential candidate and former Fox News contributor, is joining the Qatari-owned news network Al Jazeera. “Late last week Al Jazeera America announced the former vice-presidential candidate would be joining their news network,” the Post’s Suzi Parker writes today in a post on the She The People blog. Al Jazeera spokesman Stan Collender confirmed to POLITICO that Sarah Palin is not joining the global news network, which — as Parker notes — was recently called “an anti-American terror mouthpiece” on Fox News, where Palin was a contributor.” This is very serious and not at all hilarious.
