Just in case you didn’t catch The O’Reilly Factor last night, Bill was more than fair and did a great job covering our State of the Union Undress.
If you’d like to watch the full clip, it's on the front page of FoxNews.com today.
And back by popular demand, here’s the video that started it all …
It's a culture war, and you're invited! Mr. Culture Warrior himself, Bill O’Reilly, is having PETA VP Lisa Lange on his show tonight to talk about our State of the Union Undress and the use of nudity to draw attention to a serious issue like animal rights.
I think you know what side of the issue Lisa will take, and I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what side good ol' Bill will be taking.
The O’Reilly Factor, Fox News Channel, 8 Eastern, 5 Pacific. And let’s be honest, it definitely beats watching everyone’s favorite germophobe Howie Mandel on Deal or No Deal.
The first time I saw Steven Glover, more commonly known as Steve-O, was in the opening credits of Jackass: The Movie. Steve-O and about eight of his best friends had all climbed into a shopping cart and pushed off from the top of a massive hill to see how long it would take before they smashed into a wall, flying onto the concrete and sustaining various potentially career-ending injuries. I would never have dreamed that it was possible for Steve-O to do something even awesomer than that—until the other week when he sat down with those wild, fun-loving hipsters in PETA's youth division, peta2, to talk about his experience at Ringling's clown college, and his thoughts about the circus's treatment of animals. Yes, I know "awesomer" isn't a word, but if anything merits it, this interview does. Definitely check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.
Julien MacDonald, a fashion designer who is as notorious for his cruel use of fur as he is for a recent run-in with flour-wielding animal lovers (that's Julien on the right, next to Paris Hilton, also in white), recently extended an invitation to our dear friend Pamela Anderson to attend his Fashion Week show in London. In keeping with her character, Pamela—who could have responded in a number of ways—chose the classy route, politely declining the offer and recommending a few useful resources for Julien to educate himself about the fur issue.
As my mother always told me, "When pelting someone with flour fails, some gentle coaxing from a beautiful blonde will often do the trick." OK, my mother never said that. But it seems very apt in this case. Here's Pam's letter:
February 9, 2007Julien Macdonald1 page via fax: +44 207-439-9887Dear Julian,Unfortunately I won't be in London for Fashion Week, but I truly appreciate the invitation to your show and your kind offer of creating an outfit for me. I'm hoping you can extend your kindness to include animals. If you stop using fur, I'd be thrilled to attend a show of yours in the future. Please watch my video about the fur trade on peta.org.uk. You're such a wonderful, talented designer, and I know you can come up with killer fashions that don't kill anything. My friends at PETA and I would love to hear from you should you decide to go fur-free.Best of luck at Fashion Week, and kindest regards,Pamela
I have always believed that if you're going to say something important, you should say it with claymation. Check out this great video that an activist made about the Canadian seal hunt, and if you're anywhere near as good at making videos as this guy is, send them to me.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
