From THE FIX at The Washington Post:
Conservatives are not rushing to defend businessman Herman Cain in the wake of a press conference in which Sharon Bialek — with celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred at her side — claimed that the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO made an unwanted, physical sexual advance on her in 1997.
Many are pointing out that there are numerous verifiable details in Bialek’s story and are reserving judgment until more reporting comes out. Few seem willing to dismiss her story completely.
A few did dismiss the accusations out of hand. “She’s lying,” said Adam Baldwin, an actor and frequent contributor to Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism site. “Not a credible performance.”
Numerous conservatives commented on Bialek’s hair and makeup, and the fact that she had hired Allred, a Democratic donor. Rush Limbaugh mocked her as a “blonde bombshell” with a funny name.

From U.S. News & World Report:
Both the New Yorker and Newsweek featured profiles on Rep. Michele Bachmann recently. As Robert Schlesinger points out on the Thomas Jefferson Street blog, the New Yorker profile connects Bachmann with some controversial views on American slavery (an issue that has caused problems for the Bachmann campaign before). The Newsweek profile isn’t exactly kind to the presidential candidate either. However, it is the cover of the magazine that is catching the most attention.
On it, the camera has captured Bachmann looking wide-eyed and surprised above the headline “Queen of Rage.”
I guess, Mr. DeMille, that Botox Batshit Bachmann wasn’t ready for her closeup.

I’m watching the Food Channel at the moment, so I thought we’d continue on with our exploration of Rethuglican cuisine. I thought we could take a look at cereal. After all, everyone loves cereal, just ask Mikey!
I bet it tastes even better when topped with Chuckleberries.

From the New York DAILY NEWS:
It’s wedding bells for Rush Limbaugh – for the fourth time.
The conservative firebrand, 59, will exchange vows Saturday in Florida with Kathryn Rogers – a blond bombshell half his age – in a lavish Hawaiian-themed wedding bash headlined by none-other-than Sir Elton John.

To the tune of My Favorite Things (music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II):
Birthers and Deathers, and all kinds of crazy,
A Twitterer quits, ’cause she’s just too damned lazy,
Rescuing banks ’cause they’re too big to fail,
Tales about the Appalachian trail.
