Credited with inventing the family sitcom, a successful, decade-spanning career in television and radio, author of over 10,000 scripts, and a mother on-screen and off, Gertrude Berg is "the most famous woman in America you've never heard of."
Finally, this little marmot(?) is tired of being hollered at every time she leaves her den:

This nice weather must be putting me in a good mood because I had a hard time figuring out who I was going to write this week's Douchebag Decree about. Then I found Rusty DePass, a former chairman of the South Carolina Election Commission and proud Republican activist. He garnered national attention a few days ago after posting a comment on his Facebook page calling an escaped gorilla an ancestor of Michelle Obama:
My parents have been in the process of moving, which means they've
faced an onslaught of old photos, previously packed-away books and
forgotten homemade crafts from years gone by. Among the findings is the
1970 gem, Body Language by Julius Fast. His most well known book, Body Language
was on the New York Times Best Seller for 22 weeks after its initial
publication and has remained in print since then. Read on to glean the
most vital information included in Fast's pseudo-scientific pop
psychology classic, including 'How to Tell the Girls Apart,' the
formerly elusive answer to the question 'Is She Available?' and much, much more!
I agree with Siskind that sexism is unacceptable regardless of the circumstances, but should anti-feminists like Sarah Palin and Carrie Prejean have their misogynist cake and eat their equal rights too? And can they wash the cake down with the supportive milk of the feminists they're so quick to condemn? (Okay, enough with the weird cake analogies, I promise.)
Wedding season is upon us again, but instead of focusing on that bridesmaid's dress fitting your cousin will kill you if you don't attend, why don't you focus on the only marriage that America cares about? You guessed it, the OBAMA MARRIAGE (that's right; it's in caps because it is so unbelievably important). Whether it's because they love to love it or love to hate it, members of the media can't seem to get enough of the OBAMA MARRIAGE lately. Some fun facts:
At any rate, the media wants to go on a big, fat date with the OBAMA MARRIAGE and either propose to it and embarrass it in front of the whole restaurant, or stand it up and embarrass it in front of the whole restaurant, depending on who you ask. Why is that?
