Violet Affleck is back on the paci. After a flurry of paci sightings during the first year of Violet's life, there was nothing, leading this blogger to believe Violet was weaned. Oh, you're a clever one, Violet, but we're onto you.

Paci hall of shame.

Melissa Joan Hart and her 23 month old kidcessory, Mason. Gotta give her credit for tirelessly working the celebrity baby circuit. Say "college fund", Mason!

Paci hall of shame.

Welcome, Jaden James Spears. I don't feel guilty about annointing you because this is about the least of your problems.

Who knew?

Hillary Clinton has a Flickr account. Check out the most recent "debate watching party."

Is it me or is Bill Clinton still hot? Oops, did I say that out loud?

This pregnancy brought to you by...

Remember how former View co-host Star Jones was publicly maligned for her commercially-sponsored wedding? Well Star has got nothing on another View co-host. Elizabeth Hasselbeck is pimping her pregnancy. That's right. Hasselbeck's pregnancy is sponsored by Dreft. For the uninitiated (read: childless), Dreft is an expensive and completely unnecessary laundry detergent, formulated especially for babies.

And indulge me while I ponder the irony of the situation. Hasselbeck is an outspoken opponent to a woman's right to choose, a position ostensibly predicated on the "sanctity of life". But it's perfectly fine to pimp that fetus for dollars. Brings new meaning to term "sanctity."

Paci hall of shame.

This week, we're inducting a newcomer. Welcome, Angel - the daughter of Mel B. from the Spice Girls. As an aside, mom is taking this MILF thing a little too far.

Five years.

It's been five years since Congress authorized the use of force in Iraq. To mark this anniversary, a bunch of soldiers weigh in on state of affairs in Iraq. No, not phony soldiers. 12 former army captains. Their message: reinstitute the draft to bolster our presence, or pull out "immediately." They're not the only members of the military criticizing the Administration's handling of Iraq.

How many more lives must be sacrificed in the name of this futile effort?

Barbie. Must. Die.

Introducing Barbie Fashion Fever Boutique, complete with pretend credit swiper.

Snarks the Consumerist:

We think Mattel should introduce the "Dang, I Grew Up" Barbie playset, where Barbie spends her entire paycheck on Rent-a-Center furniture while trying to make the minimum payments on her dozen or so 30% interest rate cards. But then again, since this is Barbie, once her credit score hit 300 or so the playset would probably just bump it back up to 800. Responsibility is so for nerds and foster children.

Snarky Headline of the Day

Multitasking Prostitute Proves Working Moms CAN Have It All.

Another reason the name "Britney" is sinking in popularity.

As I observed, the Poop has declared "Britney" to be on the baby name retirement list. You know, negative associations, and whatnot.

Another possible reason for its decline in popularity: the name lends itself to several unsavory nicknames, which I've seen strewn about the blogosphere, including:

1. Shitney
2. Clitney
3. And now, Unfitney

Paci Hall of Shame

Kingston Rossdale, again.

Have a sandwich, Nancy.

Check out Nancy Grace, who is expecting twins in November. Isn't she a little small, for her third trimester with twins?

Say What?, Part I

Mattel apologizes to China for toy recalls.

Debrowski [Mattel's executive vice president of worldwide operations says] said he realized the damage that had been done to the reputation of Chinese goods, adding the company was committed to manufacturing in China and was also investing $30 million in a Barbie store in Shanghai.

Oh, China's reputation is damaged. Boo fucking hoo. Nice to see where Mattel's loyalty lies.
