Something To Be Thankful For: Kamala Harris Wins CA Attorney General’s Race

November 24th, 2010 | 1 comment | Posted by Diana

So what if police-endorsed Steve Cooley declared victory in California’s race for Attorney General on November 2? The ballots kept coming in and continued to be counted, revealing that the person who most Californians punched in for was in fact Kamala Harris.

This morning, Cooley called Harris to concede and congratulate her on her victory. Campaign consultant Kevin Spillane told LAT:

“Frankly the margin is just too great to be made up with the votes that remain to be counted.”

Which means that the state has elected both a Governor and Attorney General who stand fully behind LGBT equality and will refuse to defend Prop 8 in court. Perhaps now, California has a shot at shedding its reputation as one of this country’s most shametarded states. Perhaps.

BABEWATCH: New Face of Estée Lauder Liu Wen

April 20th, 2010 | 9 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Liu Wen

Age: 22

Hails from: Hunan Province, China

Occupation: Model and New Face of Estée Lauder

Why She’s a Babe: Because Liu Wen’s got quite possibly the prettiest pucker we’ve ever seen. And she books modeling jobs wearing no makeup (bitch!). And because she’s the first Asian model EVAR to be a “face” of Estée Lauder. And firsts of any kind–except First Loser, aka second place–are delicious. (You may recall that Liu was also the first Asian model to walk for Victoria’s Secret, where she somehow managed to look smokin’ while wrapped in what appeared to be an industrial air-conditioning duct.)

The 5′ 10 1/2″ Chinese model will be joining a gaggle of white girls–Gwyneth Paltrow, Elizabeth Hurley, Carolyn Murphy, and Hilary Rhoda–in representing Estée Lauder, whose ads often oppress with, let’s just say, their unbearable whiteness of being.

So, huzzah!

And also: about fucking time!

It’s 2009, And A Black Barbie Is Finally "So In Style"

October 13th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Just 50 years after the launch of Barbie, 42 years after the introduction of Colored Francie, 41 years after the birth of Christie, and 6 months after a trampy-ass tattooed Barbie, Mattel has finally launched a Black Barbie that isn’t just their skinny white doll with darker skin, or part of a collectibles set.

“Color is so IN!”

Oh, Bravo. BRAVO. How expedient. How relevant.

Can’t wait to see the”Yellow Annie” series in thirty years. Should be real cause for celebrasian.

*BREAKING NEWS* Euna Lee and Laura Ling, U.S. Journalists, Pardoned

August 4th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


It is confirmed: LAURA AND EUNA HAVE BEEN PARDONED.

We can barely contain our joy and tears and can’t wait to see their faces when they come home tonight.

Additionally, we couldn’t be more thankful that Kim Jong Il accepted Bill Clinton’s apology for the journalist’s “hostile acts,” and issued the special pardon himself. That said, we still think he’s an asshole.
