The Reading List for Nov 7: Sex & Politics Edition

Although readers of this column will note that I've already posted about the best bits of yesterday's election (hint: it's not the politics) there were still a few doozies I wanted to share with you before they got stale.  Although in the case of the political stories, the subjects themselves are beyond stale.

Example 1: Donald Trump.

Upon discovering that Obama had won the election, Trump took to Twitter to kvetch that the election was "a total sham and a travesty" and that "the world is laughing at us." No, the world is laughing with Obama for his election and laughing at you, Donald, for being such a whiney sad sack. 

Another person laughing at you, Mr Trump? Brian Williams, who thinks that Trump has "driven well past the last exit to relevance."

Why do I feel like this just happened?

Oh, and then Trump deleted a bunch of his tweets. Whatever happened to standing by your words? Hmm. Maybe Mr Trump should learn to censor himself before he presses "send." 

Oh well.

Example 2: Victoria Jackson's Twitter Feed.

Read her meltdown on Twitter. Go ahead.


In other bits of celebrity craziness, Kirstie Alley has joined John Travolta in spouting out to the tops of the mountains that he's not gay. Okay then. Sure.

Doesn't anyone remember the fact that Alley is also a Scientologist, just like Mr Travolta? I think Alley should read Kate Bornstein's A Queer and Pleasant Danger. Oh yeah, I forgot. She can't. Because Bornstein is viewed as a Suppressive Person.


And last but not least, Los Angeles County voted that all performers in porn films have to wear condoms. Even though the industry has threatened to move due to the passing of the new statute.
