Women of the world: celebrate! Well, maybe just blow a noisemaker or two; you shouldn’t get too excited. On Wednesday, the U.S Supreme Court declined an arts-and-crafts chain’s request for an emergency injunction that would block the contraceptive coverage requirements in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare to its friends). But this isn’t the last we’ll hear of this case: the complaining companies retain the ability to appeal to the Supreme Court.

We have something in common with Sarah Palin: after we admitted yesterday that we had been rooting for someone other than President Obama to be TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year”, the former Alaskan governor took to Fox News to bash Obama’s selection herself.

“Senate testimony! AACK!” That was my impression of former State Department official and U.N ambassador John Bolton impersonating Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. Some explanation: after Bolton’s claims that Clinton faked an illness in order to avoid her scheduled testimony on the Benghazi attack , I’m now certain that Bolton understands women solely in terms of Cathy cartoon strips. Faking illnesses, drowning sorrows in chocolate, constantly trying to lose ten pounds — women, amirite Bolton?

I’m not going to pretend to know anything about carrying children, but I do know that it’s insanely annoying when couples say “we’re pregnant.” That’s why it’s awesome that “TODAY” correspondent Jenna Bush Hager avoided the weird remark when confirming her rumored pregnancy on the program this morning.

Who could have guessed a few weeks ago that former Director of the CIA David Petraeus would be at the center of such a salacious scandal? But wait — have you noticed how Petraeus has been curiously shunted to the side in the media coverage of his affair? It’s not his mug covering the tabloids or his emails being reprinted as bold headlines. It’s almost like the Petraeus affair has become the Clinton Allegations 2.0: while Petraeus has gone into hibernation, the two women he cheated on his wife with have became the new preoccupation of empty-calorie news outlets everywhere.

Daily Beast writer and proud Arizonan Meghan McCain is loyal to the Republican Party, but has been so disappointed in its handling of social issues over the past few years that she might become an Independent in 2016.

When Ann Romney said earlier this year that “Modern Family” was her favorite show, sitcom creator Steve Levitan found a way to mock the conservative figure for her remark, tweeting, “Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show. We’ll offer her the role of officiant at [gay couple] Mitch & Cam’s wedding. As soon as it’s legal.” Though the program head was quick to use Ann’s fandom against her and the Romneys in a passive manner, “Modern Family” star Julie Bowen recently offered a more understanding approach to the former prospective first lady, an attitude seemingly unheard of among liberal Hollywood types who took pleasure in criticizing Ann during the election.

“I [remember] walking into work very proud, and my “I voted”sticker on, went on [the set of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch] for rehearsals, and everyone was like ‘Oh! You voted! Who’d you vote for?’ and I said, ‘Dole!’ and oh my gosh, I learned a lesson that day.”

What if Americans could bail each other out in exactly the way the government bailed out the banks at the beginning of the 2008 financial crisis? What if we could take out of control credit card debt, student debt, and bad mortgages, and make them vanish? Does that sound crazy to you? It sounds a little crazy to us, and yet…

That was some night, ey? People all over cheered and wept over yesterday’s election results, and while not everyone was thrilled with President Barack Obama’s victory, many still maintain hope for the United States as a whole. Here’s how several prominent females reacted to our president’s win.
