Yesterday Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got sassy with Senator Ron Johnson on Capitol Hill at the Benghazi hearing. (As if she didn't have enough Republican bullshit to deal with already.) Johnson questioned the U.S. Consulate’s accounting of the September 11th, 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya. He insisted that the Obama administration deceived the public by calling the attack a “spontaneous protest.” Clinton attempted to respond, but was ... Read More

We have BuzzFeed to thank for these great shots of Hillary Clinton throwing major shade at John McCain as he questions her about the Benghazi consulate attack. Secretary of State Clinton, the patron saint of kicking ass and taking names, appears to be pretty contemptuous of the senator, as well as generally over this whole “Senate Foreign Relations Committee” thang.
I highly recommend watching the video of this exchange, which features the Secretary ... Read More

When we were four, a “hard” question went something along the lines of, “Do you want the crusts to stay on, or do you want them cut off?” When Chelsea Clinton was four, the questions she faced were more of the “Do you want to grow up and run for senate one day?” variety. It’s no wonder she began answering these questions with a plain and simple “no” quite early on. But, just as how our opinions on PB&J ... Read More

We all have that one family member who starts off an offensive statement with something like “I’m not racist… but my company has been hiring too many foreigners.” Right.
But while your totally not-racist uncle/step-mother/second cousin’s biggest platform is probably a Yahoo! chat room and your sorry ears, things work a little differently when you’re Ed Klein. A former editor of The New York Times Magazine and author of the ... Read More

He Who Shall Not Be Named questioned Hillary Clinton's validity after she was named one of TIME's most influential people. This is her 6th time to make the list and her second time to be honored for her work as Secretary of State. It's well-earned, too, considering to date she has spent 1,647.4 hours (that's 68.6 days) traveling to 95 countries on behalf of our nation.
I won't go into the blatant misogyny behind his immature claims that "all she is is ... Read More

I often fantasize what it'd be like if I had some direct connection to Hillary Clinton. Like, if she was my aunt or a close family friend and I could call her up anytime I needed advice or a letter of recommendation or wanted to sound off on a dude pulling Typical Man bs.
While having Hillary's phone number in my contact list is only a pipe dream, this new tumblr plays off the Texts From... meme and imagines what it'd be like if we could take a glimpse ... Read More
