Bill Cosby Lands In the Pudding

Bill Cosby Lands In the Pudding

Bill Cosby, a once-beloved entertainer now convicted of sexual assault and a registered sex offender, has been sentenced to 3 to 10 years in a Pennsylvania prison. Earlier, Mr. Cosby admitted obtaining Quaalude prescriptions in order to surreptitiously administer the sedative to women so he could have sex with them. Quaaludes, the “date-rape drug” of the Disco Era, were made a controlled Schedule 1 drug in 1985. Bill Cosby made a public service announcement for the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids in 1990.

That’s not the only irony. Bill Cosby’s otherwise family-friendly 1960s comedy act had a routine where he described his teenage fantasy about slipping Spanish Fly, a legendary aphrodisiac, into women’s drinks so he could have sex with them. Nothing funny there, after all.


Trump Grabs GOP By the Short Hairs

Trump Grabs GOP By the Short Hairs
Last weekend, serial adulterer and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump grabbed the Republican Party by the pussy after a videotape of him boasting about sexually assaulting women became public. Republican candidates for other offices had accepted Mr. Trump’s repeated racist and xenophobic statements, but they divorced The Donald when they saw him say “pussy” on television. In the spirit of statesmanship, Mr. Trump has promised those fellow Republicans that he will rain down hell on them.

During Sunday’s Town Hall Talk-a-thon, Donald Trump had a simple explanation for why his treatment of women doesn’t disprove his fitness for office: Bill Clinton screwed around even more.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn or “DSK,” head of the International Monetary Fund, is accused of raping a hotel maid in his $3,000-a-night suite. At last, international finance news we can understand.

Betsy Rothstein rates the scandal coverage:

“IMF Sex Scandal Headline: Who Did it Best?” Betsy Rothstein, FishbowlDC

Courtney Comstock at Business Insider made the real headline find, last month’s French interview with alleged dirty old man Strauss-Kahn:

“Oui, j’aime les femmes, et alors?” [“Yes, I Love Women, So What?”] Antoine Guiral, Libération

The virtual linguist snares a turn of French phrase, DSK described as “a chaud lapin or ‘hot rabbit,’ which evokes quite a different picture to the English equivalents ladies’ man or Don Juan.”
