People magazine has named Gwyneth Paltrow their Most Beautiful Woman In The World for 2013. Here at GraceLessLand we think they got that wrong, and here’s the cover People should have used:

The Most Beautiful Woman In The World

Obama To Literally Swear On A Stack Of Bibles

ObamaSwears

The White House has announced that President Barack Obama will take the oath of office with his hand on not one but two bibles. One of the bibles belonged to President Abraham Lincoln, and the other belonged to Rev. Martin Luther King. Obama identifies strongly with these two men because Lincoln brought the country through a time of great internal conflict, because King brought about great social change, and because both were killed by white men with guns.

Senate, House Pass Biden-McConnell Fiscal Cliff Deal

The Senate and the House of Representatives have passed a landmark plan to avoid the dreaded “fiscal cliff” that loomed up with the new year. Brokered in the 11th hour by Vice President Joe Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the deal allows Bush-era tax cuts on those earning over $450k to expire, while putting-off spending cuts until later in 2013. The deal is widely seen as a huge win for President Barack Obama.

When it became apparent that any deal would involve raising taxes House Speaker John Boehner stepped back as if he were facing a snake and insisted that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid would have to take-up the negotiations. When it became apparent that any deal would include spending cuts Reid ran and hid like a frightened child.

That left McConnell, who is being sacrificed to the wrath of conservatives, and Biden, who really has nothing to lose at this point.

“My career is essentially over anyway” McConnell said. “After something like twenty terms in the Senate I was going to retire after this one, anyway – so I might as well take it in the neck so that chicken-shit Boehner can say he had nothing to do with this.”
