    Lena Dunham has shared an emotional message alongside naked pictures nine months after her hysterectomy. The 32-year-old, who had the operation in December after suffering for years with endometriosis, said the occasion felt bittersweet. She explained that the date was particularly poignant as nine months is the length of time a woman carries a baby before birth – and ‘I won’t ever do it the way I planned to.’

    Illinois government offices remained open Saturday as the home state of former President Barack Obama commemorated his birthday under a new state law. The bill marking Aug. 4 as “Barack Obama Day” throughout the state was enacted without making the date a full-scale holiday. The Illinois House narrowly rejected a plan to make Obama’s birthday a state holiday amid worries that the cash-strapped state could not afford to give state state employees another paid day off.Obama turned 57. The law hailed Obama’s efforts to protect the rights of Americans and build “bridges across communities.”
  • Ex-GOP majority leader: Republicans must protect Mueller [RINO Frist]

    Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) warned Republicans against continuing their "assault" against Robert Mueller, writing in an op-ed Friday that the GOP must let Mueller continue his investigation. In an opinion piece for The Washington Post, the former Tennessee Republican urged Republicans to fight for the "rule of law," even if it meant going up against the Trump administration. "I am also a Republican because I believe in the rule of law. Republicans must fight for that principle today — even if it means pushing back against a Republican administration," Frist wrote. "It isn’t easy to tell a...

    Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) acknowledged that his conversations with President Trump about race have been "painful" and "uncomfortable," but insisted that the president has kept an open mind on the issue. "They're hard, they're painful, they're uncomfortable to sit in the Oval Office and have a conversation with the president about things that you strongly disagree about," Scott told CNN's Van Jones. "He didn't change his perspective, I certainly can't change my perspective." But Scott also said that he was "hopeful" after the conversations. "The way it closed I thought gave me reasons to be hopeful," Scott recalled. "It closed...

I’m the person that does believe that just because someone is appointed doesn’t mean —and I believe I have said that a lot about the Supreme Court — that you never know a person on the Supreme Court is going to vote because sometimes, you know, things change. They wake up. They see things. I don’t like hearing, again, that I’m trying...

    More than a few people have connected Donald Trump's decision to tear apart families seeking asylum at our southern border to the history of American slave-owners separating parents and children for whatever reason they saw fit. It's not the most perfect analogy -- at least not in this state. Because slave-holding Louisiana, believe it or not, had a law against separating enslaved mothers and their young children. "And be it further enacted," Section 9 of Louisiana's 1806 Code Noir (Black Code) reads, "That every person is expressly prohibited from selling separately from their mothers, the children who shall not have...

    WASHINGTON — It was a moment of peak Spock. Hours after the globe-rattling election of a man whom Barack Obama has total disdain for, a toon who would take a chain saw to the former president’s legacy on policy and decency, Obama sent a message to his adviser Ben Rhodes: “There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand on the earth.” ...... As president, Obama always found us wanting. We were constantly disappointing him. He would tell us the right thing to do and then sigh and purse his lips when his instructions were not followed. .........

    The official cover for Michelle Obama’s memoir has been released.(snip) In the photo, Obama is smiling with her right hand resting underneath her chin. She wears a simple white T-shirt that’s pulled off of one shoulder and hoop earrings. Her hair is blown out in loose waves and her skin is glowing. According to Obama’s stylist Meredith Koop, she started with the idea of jeans and a T-shirt and wanting to portray her as all-American, relatable, and real. “It’s what Michelle wears as Michelle, not First Lady Michelle Obama. I wanted the modern ease of a tee mixed with the...

    The Smithsonian Institution has relocated its official portrait of former first lady Michelle Obama to a larger space in the National Portrait Gallery because of a “high volume of visitors.” The portrait, by Baltimore-based artist Amy Sherald, was unveiled last month, alongside one of former President Obama by Kehinde Wiley. Visitors have poured into the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., since the Obamas’ portraits were installed. About 176,000 people visited the museum last month, the largest number in a month in three years, CNN reported. The former first lady paid a visit to 2-year-old Smithsonian visitor Parker Curry earlier...

    The Northwest Inlander ^ | 3/8/18 | Mitch Ryals (as told by his bun)
    We're standing in line for coffee when out of nowhere, I get honked. The lady behind us reached up, wrapped me up in her grubby paw and squeezed. "Your man bun is so soft," she says to the man to whose head I'm affixed with a black elastic hair tie. "I've never touched one before." An innocent compliment to most, but to me this violent assault is just another example of the indignities of my existence. I'm just a bun, after all. I didn't choose to be tied to a man. Women gawk and stare. Sometimes they'll shout: "Nice man...

    Meghan Markle has finally found her Prince Charming - but it has come at a huge cost, with the American actress forced to give up on many of her passions. Prince Harry's fiancee had to make the heartbreaking decision to leave behind her beagle Bogart after moving to the UK to start her new life, as the pet is thought to be too old to fly overseas. The 36-year-old has also given up on her career as an actress so she can take up full royal commitments in Britain, bringing an end to her run as Rachel Zane in the...

    The Columbian ^ | November 24, 2017 | by Eugene Robinson
    Can the descent of American political culture into ugly tribalism be halted? Alabama voters will give their answer when they decide whether to send Roy Moore to the U.S. Senate. Moore, 70, has built a long, disgraceful career out of smarmy religiosity spiked with tribal grievance. Having posed for years as the most pious of Christians, he now stands accused by nine women of un-Christian behavior: They claim convincingly that Moore, when he was in his 30s, aggressively pursued romantic or sexual relationships, including with teens barely half his age. Successful demagogues can use tribal enmities to blind their followers...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was moved to near tears while speaking about Sen. John McCain early Friday morning after the Republican "skinny repeal" of Obamacare failed on the Senate floor. Schumer choked up as he turned his attention to McCain, who recently received a diagnosis of brain cancer. "And let's turn the page in another way," Schumer said. "All of us were so inspired by the speech and the life of the senator from Arizona. And he asked us to go back to regular order, to bring back the Senate that some of us who've been here a while...

    <p>Actress Rosie O'Donnell certainly knows how to push conservatives' buttons. And now she is drawing their ire by pushing her own button: one that makes President Trump jump off a cliff.</p> <p>"Push Trump Off A Cliff Again," O'Donnell tweeted Saturday in an apparent play on Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan. The tweet links to a game in which the player can, as O'Donnell says, make the president jump off a cliff, again and again.</p>

    For a minute there, things were looking up for President Donald Trump. By late last week, his approval rating was hovering around 40 percent, which isn't great but marked an improvement for the former reality TV star. But then Trump spent the holiday weekend railing against the press and blasting off tweetstorms—and the president's approval rating took a plunge. Gallup's tracking poll pegged Trump's approval at just 37 percent to start off July, while disapproval stood at 57 percent. Last week, Gallup found the president's approval rating had briefly climbed to 40 percent before the fall-off back into the 30s....
