Why Hillary Clinton should stick to talking about things she knows about

Because of obligatory and, frankly, stupid references like this one, where she compares climate change to losing weight.

I"m with you on foreign policy, Hillary. But please, do all of us women a favor and shut up already about the dieting.

**Thanks, Jane, for pointing this out to me!

Models without makeup! Or Photoshopping!

I love Bitch magazine. And I love it even more for this blog post, pointing out how this month's French Elle features models without makeup, Photoshopping, or other digital manipulations to make them look unreal.

As the Bitch blogger points out, these models are still thin, white, and have gorgeous bone structure.

Hey--at least it's a small counterbalance to the obscenely unnatural images we're bombarded with night and day. A new visual reference point.

I'll take it. For now.
