Today, Senator Marco Rubio held a Q&A for “young professionals” at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire. That sounds very boring, and it probably mostly was, except that Rubio gave perhaps the most insane answer possible to the question, “Who would you like to have a beer with who is not a politician?”
At some point in their lives, most young women have to decide whether to become an internationally renowned women's rights activist or star in their own primetime sitcom. Unless they look sufficiently ethnic-y, that is, in which case they're free to take credit for both. That's the lesson Mindy Kaling learned earlier this month at the New Yorker Festival, where "a tipsy man in his 80s" mistook the comedian for Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.
Malala Yousafzai, the 17-year-old Pakistani education activist who survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban for her work, became the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. She'll share the award with India's Kailash Satyarthi, 60, a child rights activist and founder of Save the Childhood Movement.
