The Miss Bum Bum 2012 Winner!
Vogue editor and big-time Obama contributor Anna Wintour is reportedly on the short list for a cushy ambassadorship. The Five’s Bob Beckel has no problem with that: “This is nothing new. They give it to big contributors. Every administration does it.”
CNN’s Erin Burnett had a different take: “Should this be the way it is? There are so many career diplomats who do work overseas, wonderful work, and maybe it’s time for us to decide what we think an ambassador really should be.”

This is your life in America? Please. Until recently, outside of the business world no one had heard of you in America. On the other hand, I was familiar with your namesake product. Last year, I inadvertently downloaded McAfee software — and my computer was promptly infected with bugs.
The world held its breath last month, anxiously awaiting the results of the U.S. presidential election. Balderdash. Most of us were holding our breath this month, anxiously awaiting the results of Brazil’s Miss Bum Bum 2012 contest.
Here is a picture of this year’s winner, Carine Felizardo, courtesy of The Huffington Post. I think we can all agree that she has a lovely smile.
