Ellen DeGeneres, Lipstick Lesbian?-------
This year is shaping up to be one for the record books. Barack Obama is the first black man to accept a major party nomination; Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and her oft talked-about updo are making questionable strides for women everywhere; and apparently, an openly gay Ellen DeGeneres will join an illustrious list of past supermodels and actresses as the newest face of CoverGirl cosmetics. To which we say, kudos. Way to capitalize on the current climate for social change, CoverGirl. Whatever sells more makeup, right?
