madam secretary: bitches get stuff done.

Finally, it’s official!  Hillary Clinton is Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of State!  Technically we all “knew” this weeks ago but the journalism major in me couldn’t write about this until it was the real deal.

This is pretty awesome.  First of all, because Hillary is awesome.  Maybe she’s a little coarse but she’s also intelligent, visionary and deeply devoted to serving this country.  Plus, she’s BFF with Madeleine Albright, my idol and all-time favorite person ever.  So, if Hillary ever needs some extra advice she has one of the greatest Secretaries of State in her speed dial. 

Speaking of which, here they are, my two favorite Secretaries of State:0305

As this is, sadly, not a video you can’t tell that here Madeleine Albright is actually saying “you know, I think we should offer that delightful guest-blogger, Madeline, a job.”  And Hillary is saying “That is a wonderful idea!  I will call her right away.” 

Despite the fact that Hillary was the United States’ foremost ambassador during her years in the White House, visiting 60 countries with the mission of promoting American values and policy abroad (hmmm that sounds kind of like what the Secretary of State does . . .), there have been some distubing reactions to her nomination.  According to a Reuter’s article titled “Women see Clinton job as triumph, disappointment,” some women are still pissed that Hillary’s not the prez.  Do I think she would have made a great president?  Absolutely.  BUT LET’S MOVE ON (Hillary has). 

Most disturbing was this quote from Carol Jenkins, president of the Women’s Media Center in New York:

“Secretary of State has become the women’s spot — a safe expected place for women to be. In the ideal world, we’d see woman as Treasury secretary and throughout these ranks (of government).”

HOLD UP.  Now that three of the U.S.’s 67 (including Hillary) Secretaries of State have been women it’s a woman’s spot?  I was a liberal arts major so I could be wrong but I think that math’s a little fuzzy.  And hey, LADY!  You’re the president of the Women’s Media Center so what’s with the bad press?  Secretary of State is the highest cabinet position and fourth in the line of presidential succession.  Why are we insulting the position at all, let alone now that a woman is about to be in charge?  Seeing more women throughout government would be great but we’ll get there; and in the meantime let’s not insult those who are not only filling these positions but working to improve women’s rights around the world. 

And you know what?  If Secretary of State has become “the women’s spot” it’s for one reason and one reason only: bitches get stuff done.

tina fey is palin on snl!

The woman who made wearing glasses sexy is back.  Tina Fey, I love you.  And now she is back on SNL as highly under-qualified Alaska Governor Sarah Palin–and she’s great at it.  Even the obnoxious accent is right.  Enjoy.

sarah palin is mccain’s vp choice.

Interesting choice McCain. Sarah Palin is the governor of Alaska. And it’s so blatantly obvious that you’re fishing for Hilllllllz voters. But remember that sexism that Hillary faced? Yup. You’re going to alienate some of your base. Oh, and remember how you criticized Barack for being young and inexperienced? She hasn’t finished her first term as governor as Alaska. Hmmm. Is she ready to lead? Let the hypocrisy begin.

Okay, I chose a bad picture.

So she is kind of hot in that Tina Fey way. But Sarah Palin, I’d rather see Tina Fey in the White House than you. And Tina would never have those heinous bangs.

One last thought. If I were her, I’d be a little insulted. Because they don’t want her because of her, they chose her because she’s a woman and they’re aching to take away from Barack’s thunder.

UPDATED: Sarah Palin is under investigation for abuse of power. Click here to read the AP story.
