    Love that clip with the little girls and Nicki Minaj. Very cute.

    Also love that Nicki encouraged them to stay in school (though are they even in school yet?) and love that when she said she’d take them on a shopping spree to buy whatever they want, the first thing she mentioned she could buy them is books.

  2. Pea says

    Lil’ Kim, the Queen of rap?!? HA! She’s selling her mixtape on eBay, for $10, and no one is buying it. It’s time for the “Queen,” to retire, and let someone else sit on the throne.

    Barney Frank can field softball questions all day long with amusing comebacks, but his record on Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac really cannot withstand any scrutiny at all, something I’m sure the Occupy Wall St. crowd is aware of (being to his left on such matters). Corn of The Nation mag also would know better too (also being to his left). His buddy Chris Dodd was forced out of the Senate after all, for precisely this issue. Frank had his first serious challenger in years in 2010 as well. If he did not have the world’s safest house seat he would have been a goner. Dodd-Frank does not re-regulate derivatives either, it merely requires more forms to be filled out at tax time (generally monthly forms) and establishes a hypothetical oversight board that hasn’t even met yet.
