I’m confused since the Republican Party always tells us how countries with socialized medicine hate it — supposedly furriners all come here for their health needs. Yet there they were, celebrating their healthcare system at the Opening Ceremony. #interesting #messagetoromney #MittTheTwit
Hillary Clinton on what designers she wears:
- Interviewer: Okay. Which designers do you prefer?
- Hillary Clinton: What designers of clothes?
- Interviewer: Yes.
- Hillary Clinton: Would you ever ask a man that question?
- Interviewer: Probably not. Probably not.
However you feel about Anne, bravo to her for this take down.
Watch interviews with her and with ScarJo about their comic book films. Watch how they always get questions about their bodies and clothing and diets and blah blah blah fucking blah. Watch as the male cast members do not get the same treatment.
Because apparently all we care about when it comes to actresses are their bodies and not, ya know, their acting.
We meet again, Tail!
A roundup of the gaffes so far:
Mitt Romney 2012: embarrassing America on foreign soil since July 25, 2012!
On top of everything else:
The Guardian: “Romney also met Ed Miliband, the leader of the oppositon Labour party. Miliband took questions from two reporters from what he called “my side”, but Romney would not take questions from US journalists. At one point, Romney called Miliband “Mr Leader”, which prompted suggestions he had forgotten Miliband’s name.”
First Read notes that Mitt Romney answered questions from British reporters but did not take any questions from the American reporters, “which isn’t protocol… In fact, it’s considered a bit of an insult to the U.S reporters who are following the presumptive GOP presidential nominee overseas. Even bringing this up will lead some to say, ‘There goes the media, whining again.’ But folks, those of us that have traveled overseas and been involved in these VERY limited press avails have rarely seen heads of democracies TOTALLY ignore their own press corps but answer ANOTHER press corps’ questions…”
“It’s not good for us as a country — it’s not good for him — but as a country to have somebody that’s nominated by one of the principal parties to go over and insult everybody… I think I would have thought up this on my own and not [have to rely] on the staff. I would go there and I would say, ‘They have done a remarkably good job. I know how they have been hurt with the economy. But they have done this. I have done it myself. It’s so hard to do, and they have done a remarkably good job.’ That’s what they should have done. He would have been cheered and not have the mayor, before 60,000 people, belittle one of our major party nominees. And that’s what the mayor did.” — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Thursday night
