Andrea Mitchell isn’t going to apologize for selectively editing that clip of Mitt Romney getting all excited about sandwiches you order with a touch screen, so we’re not going to apologize for the shame and humiliation that the following people don’t feel when parading embarrassing intimate details of their private lives to the public.
They want you to know and so do we. So today in “things you could have gone your entire life without knowing about people you meet in the political sphere:
- Jill Biden apparently wears very expensive lingerie. On a fundraising trip to Chicago, Dr. Biden took a short detour to Michigan Avenue’s most expensive intimate apparel retailer, La Perla to “pick up a few things” to take home to Joe. La Perla panties, which have a reputation for “feeling invisible,” will set you back around $50 each. And although less famous than the First Lady’s top-shelf favorite Agent Provocateur, it does feature some intriguing options. Given his blue-collar background, though, I imagine Joe prefers Fredericks of Hollywood.
- According to Rielle Hunter, having sex with John Edwards is basically exactly like being in Fifty Shades of Grey, except that you’re having sex with John Edwards. I wonder if he lets you touch his hair…
- Meghan McCain is still around! And she has a new book! And she’s on a publicity tour! And once, she totally, like, smoked marijuana, so she totally understands exactly what these kids mean when they are all, like, OMG, marijuana should totes be legal! Except that she calls it “cannabis” which no one who actually has ever smoked pot does, which means I, of course, would doubt her sincerity, except given the intellectual weight of a typical Meghan McCain conversation, find her admission totally and utterly plausible.
And in case it wasn’t clear, you’re welcome, America. You’re welcome.
