Answer: That's not funny!!!
[Thanks to AL for pointing out that lovely Ms. cover of Jane Fonda, and to Gawker for comparing it to Good Housekeeping's regular first lady feature.] Jane, honey, love the facelift, love the pink lace, love the pooch. And how clever to pimp for husband number 4 on the cover of Ms. Magazine! No one will ever suspect. As I said over at Threading Water:
I used to think Ted Turner
Was a real lucky fella,
But after seeing you on Ms.
You should have stuck with Barbarella.
I mean, did anyone think Jane was a feminist after this came out?
Don't want you to think I've lost the ability to laugh, though. Wonkette's NYT review[login required] of O'Bierne's book, "Women Who Make the World Worse: And How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Families, Military, Schools, and Sports" made me laugh out loud. The title of the book made me laugh out loud too, but still:
[O'Beirne's] salvos against such dusty icons as Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda and Catharine MacKinnon do all these women the enormous favor of making them relevant again. And, surely, anytime anyone recalls the deeds of Bella Abzug, an angel gets its wings.
Oh, sure, Blue Gal coulda put a picture of Bella Abzug right here, but wouldn't you rather look at the deeply iconic image of Madonna holding a very large fish? Sure you would.
