New York Representative Charles Rangel may have saved face for the Democrats by stepping down from his committee post this week. But Jon Stewart took the the opportunity to joke about the literal face of our dear Congresswoman on the Daily Show this week.

Ah, Nancy Pelosi's face -- so set in stone it's as if she were auditioning for Mount Rushmore. While Pelosi denies having had plastic surgery at all, there's no question that her birthdays keep coming while her face doesn't show any sign of admitting it. We wrote a story on the Pelosi taut-face phenomenon back in 2007, in which a plastic surgery expert told us that, indeed, she looked a little too good for her age.

In his comedy skit yesterday, Stewart showed news footage of Pelosi declaring that Rangel's indiscretion in accepting corporate sponsored trips to the Caribbean "was a violation of a rule of the House. It was not anything the jeopardized our country in any way." (Start watching at the 5:25 mark.) At one point in the footage, it even appeared that Pelosi attempted to raise her eyebrows ... almost.

"What?!" Stewart screeched. "So violations of the House ethics rules

don't jeopardize our country in any way? Does Botox also paralyze your

moral compass?"

Daaang. Then Stewart went on to say "I may know

why Pelosi went easy on him," and showed a composite photo in which

Pelosi appears in a sarong and bikini top next to a sleeping Rangel on

the beach of the Dominican Republic. Hopefully, she's wearing SPF 45.

Word has it Botox and the tropic sun don't mix.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
