In even-less-serious news, it's a big day on the 'tween front. The Clinton campaign announced that America Ferrara and Amber Tamblyn have endorsed the senator from New York. Can you feel the excitement?

Ferrara is the star of Ugly Betty. You might know Tamblyn from such TV shows as Joan of Arcadia. But I'll always think of her as the star of the as-yet-unreleased art film Normal Adolescent Behavior. Here's a thumbnail description of the film:

Amber Tamblyn stars as Wendy, a smart girl who is a sort of lynchpin for a group of friends who have known each other since kindergarten. The six of them decided to skip the world of Friday night parties and hook-ups and spin the bottle so that they wouldn't get side-tracked.

So every Saturday night, they get together as a group and have sex.

If 16-year-old boys could vote, Tamblyn would help Clinton win in landslide.

Meanwhile, the blog Lawyers, Guns, & Money points us to this very amusing post comparing the GOP field to various demons in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe. Mitt Romney as the mayor of Sunnydale is a little too on-the-nose; Ron Paul as Moloch the Conquerer is pretty great.
