Holiday Fun at the Huff Po: American Flag Bikinis

The <i>HuffPo</i>'s contribution to July 4? 'The Ten Greatest American Flag Bikini Moments'
The 4th of July in my neck of the woods has become pretty boring. The classic barbecue has become a vestige of the past; even the fireworks seemed old hat. So this year excitement was at a minimum.

But there was one surprise that I never expected. In a stroke of genius I didn't realize the people at the Huffington Post possessed, they produced "The Ten Greatest American Flag Bikini Moments," providing us with the photos of the best babes in the best stars and stripes bikinis. We're talking a range from Jessica Simpson, to Giselle, to Lynda Carter in her Wonder Woman outfit, who incidentally announced on the same day -- thank you again Huff Po -- that she is an alcoholic.

I want to go out of my way to thank the Huffington Post for enriching my Independence Day (snark!), with a feature I never would have thought of in a hundred years. And in case there are any party poopers in the audience, rest assured. Don't lose your confidence in the Huff Po readers: Barack Obama's explanation of his FISA vote was out-polling the Bikini spread in page views: 143, 550 to 122,510. (And make no mistake. I love the Huffington Post -- where else can you get hot politics and hot bodies on the same web site at the same time. What a country! )
