Snap Queens

Well, you can’t say last night’s Democratic debate was boring. Hillary and Obama both got off some good lines. “You worked for a SLUMLORD!” “Oh, yeah?

HomoQuotable – Camille Paglia

“Hillary’s willingness to tolerate Bill’s compulsive philandering is a function of her general contempt for men. She distrusts them and feels morally superior to them.

Magic Johnson: Obama’s A Rookie

I’ve been thinking that the Clinton campaign was going to answer the Obama-Oprah combo with an endorsement from a major black celeb of their own.
