Executive Web Editor extraordinaire for Jerk Magazine, Kate Holloway, inquired my thoughts via her Facebook status after the blog-o-sphere exploded concerning the newest accusations concerning Sarah Palin and feminism.

In my book, Sarah Palin does not support feminist ideals, therefore it is difficult for me to associate her with the progressive, never-ending fight for equal rights between genders. Scratch that—it’s nearly impossible for me to consider her a feminist.

Strong women exemplify components of feminism no matter what—Palin’s leadership in her otherwise lacking party is admirable, especially considering current gender roles in politics. Gender aside, I would never elect an individual to greater office who chose to step down from their position as Governor in order to write books, appear on Fox news as a contributing analyst, and signs deals with TLC for reality shows. Woman or man—that can’t be my next President. (more…)

Scott Brown’s declaration of his daughter’s hotness got us thinking, what other politicians have hot daughters, and are they up for grab as well? These are the top five hottest political daughters, according to a couple of Jerks:

1. Ashley Biden – MM, nose candy.

2. Bristol Palin – Why yes, I will milk my teenage pregnancy in the tabloids for money thereby proving that choosing life is easy when you’re in the public eye and can rely on publicity stunts to pay for diapers..

3.  Meghan McCain – Blogger for The Daily Beast on topics like BOOBS.

4. Jenna Bush – 1/2 of those Bush twins, the one who saw dead people.

5. Chelsea Clinton – recently engaged and this picture definitely sends our motors running.

Asswipes protesting on Waverly Avenue in Syracuse

The scenery on my way down to Marshall Street...beautiful isn't it. Also, for clarity's sake, most of these people are witnesses, not protestors.

If you look closely at the sign, it says “Islam is an Evil, Oppressive, Violent, Murderous Religion” and I can’t even begin to say how incredibly inaccurate this statement is. If you have any semblance of a brain and aren’t deluded by those hatemongers akin to Glenn Beck, you’ll already know. If you don’t, I have no way of convincing you because you clearly belong to a faction of American society that follows ignorant statements spewed by TV pundits pandering to the lowest common public fear for ratings. Coincidentally, this is exactly what Hitler did to get elected in Germany and then carry out the Holocaust.

On a side note, the gentleman in the black coat with his back turned to the camera followed me after I took this picture with my cellphone. He seems to believe that he can sue me if I post this on the Internet. He clearly doesn’t know his media law (thank you Professor Gutterman). He was in a public place, the sidewalk on the corner of University and Waverly Avenue in Syracuse. This locale is just outside the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, ripe full of budding journalists. Smart location if you want to keep your ignorant, protesting identity a secret.

Second side note, the guy holding the sign is changing it up. Last week his sign featured an aborted fetus. Someone needs a day job.

Update 3:10 PM – I forgot to mention that the man with the hateful sign was also holding another sign about Jesus and love and spewing out messages to the effect that Islam was spread on the hilt of a sword (I can’t remember the exact quote, so I won’t try to put it). I know we’re the ironic generation, but Crusades and American colonization anyone?

Today’s breakdown invokes a choice between science and religion.

Rats giggle and now my fears of rats nibbling on my toes have an added component: they’re secretly laughing at me. Our world is becoming more like Narnia, which in all honesty, is awesome:

Out of all three comments last week, the best caption for The New Yorker cartoon was: “A little x over the not, there, now it reads ‘thou shalt covet they neighbor’s wife’…let’s get to it,” courtesy of Kate.

But only three comments? Come on people, we can all come up with MORE ideas than that! Here’s a second shot: come up with your very best idea for the very best caption possible.
