It seems almost too good to be true. With Republican presidential candidate Mittens Romney in the race against Obama, there’s a growing awareness of the Mormon “faith.” And now perverts everywhere can order genuine Mormon underwear from this website (mens and womens available). What’s up with the over the (male) nipple stitching?! Check out www.MormonSecret.com. Via Dan Savage.
Subtle presidential symbolism?
Mr Putin doesn’t believe in subtlety when it comes to his personal imagery. Bare chest, hunting rifle, and now harpoon! My, what a large gun you have, sir! (Credit: ZJB).

American summer ritual more vulgar than Japan?
Just so no one thinks Japan has a global monopoly on vulgar summer festivities, I am happy to show an American summer vulgarity crossed with this year’s start to the 2012 presidential race. At state fairs, like this one in Iowa, when Americans are not eating deep fried butter on a stick, they are often shoving corn dogs into their faces. Fittingly, in Japan corn dogs are referred to as “American dogs.” Combined with religious nuts, this is not only vulgar but also distasteful.

Current Japan PM’s wife offers him tough love
The last PM’s wife claimed to have traveled to Venus and to feed daily by eating the sun with her husband. Current Prime Minister’s wife Kan Nobuko wife said that if she lived her life again, she would not choose the life she had already lived. And her reports of tough love suggest that their daily life is full of volatile policy and personal conflicts.
From the BBC News (via tipster Christophe):
The prime minister’s wife said she supported him by giving him such a tough time at home, and that he preferred going to parliament for question time.
“My husband sometimes says to me: ‘I really hate going to the Diet because everyone is so mean and critical, but it’s a lot easier being subjected to this criticism at the Diet than fighting at home with you’,” she said.
“That’s a way to get him out of the house and go to the Diet, so maybe that’s the way I can support him.”
These would be unimaginable words spoken by the Stepfordly obedient and adoring wives of United States presidents. Is this a sign of freedom and power, or something else entirely?
Unmentioned in this new story is the role that Ms Kan reportedly played rehabilitating her husband’s political image after a sexual harassment scandal in the 1990s. Others credit her outspokenness to the powerless of Japanese women, whose statements do not carry much importance no matter how incendiary.
Oh, and apparently she wear very elegant kimonos and speaks in a vulgar manner. I will try to learn more about Ms Kan.
(Don’t worry, Kathryn, there’ll be more Nakano yankii hotties soon after this political detour).
Why are Americans so ugly?!
OMG. What a horrible outfit & nasty hair! This is the mistress of former Democratic candidate John Edwards, the smooth talker until recently married to the lady with cancer. Miss Rielle Hunter declares to GQ magazine that their love is real, and she’s helping him “live the truth.” The only part of this photo that is *not* offensive is the baby’s purple “ugly” doll.
A quick review of her Wikipedia page reminds me that she is the former girlfriend of brat pack author Jay McInerney, and the inspiration for the coke-devouring character Alison Poole, in his 1988 “Story of My Life.” The Huffington Post describes the fictional lady as follows: “Alison isn’t easy to like. When we first meet her, she’s an STD-carrying slut who cons her latest lover into giving her money by telling him she needs an abortion.”
Where is the dignity of America’s ruling class? Maybe her visibility is a plot to make Obama look better. Thank heavens for Michelle Obama.
