My Top 10 Gifts For Kids This Holiday Season: By Deirdre Imus, November 28, 2016 - The daily business of life – especially with kids – is hard. This past year in particular has felt more stressful than most, with many of us worrying about things far beyond our control. Such anxiety demands that, every so often, we stop, breathe, and consider what really matters: above all, always, it is our children.

    Deirdre Imus and Lis Wiehl Discuss Witches, Breasts, and Orgasms. No, Really, They Do.

    Imus kicked off this week’s edition of Blonde on Blonde with Deirdre Imus and Lis Wiehl by playing a campaign advertisement recently released by Christine O’Donnell, the Republican running for the Senate in Delaware.

    “I’m not a witch,” O’Donnell says in the ad. “I’m nothing you’ve heard. I’m you.”

    Though the ad seems to have been produced purely for comedic value, Lis, an attorney and legal analyst for Fox News, noted it’s actually a sad indication of the state of politics in this country when somebody has to make an ad like that in the first place.

    Imus thought it was genius. “Considering the circumstances she finds herself in,” he said, referring to Bill Maher releasing tapes of O’Donnell admitting she dabbled in witchcraft and once dated a witch, “That is a genius way to disarm everybody.”

    In Deirdre’s view, it was presumptuous for O’Donnell to claim, “I’m you,” and to state that she’d “do what you’d do” in Washington, DC. “Most people are completely unqualified to do anything in Washington,” Deirdre observed.

    In New Jersey last month, a Rutgers University freshman jumped off the George Washington Bridge after two classmates posted video on the internet of him making out with another boy.  Though the two 18-year olds were charged with invasion of privacy, Lis believes it should go way beyond that.

    “I think the law should be changed so that this kind of crime is felony murder,” she said, and described felony murder as “when you go to rob a store, and you don’t necessarily know that the guy with you has got a gun, but the clerk gets shot anyway.” The unknowing person would still be charged as an accomplice to felony murder.

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but Deirdre likes to think of it as Breast Cancer Environmental Protection Month, and in her monthly Fox News blog she lists 9 ways women can protect themselves from factors in the environment that contribute to breast cancer development.

    Both Blondes perform self-exams every month, and Lis reported firsthand the jitters she felt when she received a call after a mammogram instructing her to come back and have another.

    “Even though I was scared for those weeks in between the two mammograms, I’m so glad I did it,” she said. “It’s amazing technology. They can tell me, ‘Here’s what’s going on, but it’s not cancer.’”

    Deirdre, however, told Lis there are health risks associated with mammograms, as there are with CAT scans, x-rays, and any other form of radiation, and that even just a yearly mammogram could have an accumulative effect over time.

    But Lis, like most people, didn’t want to hear that, and joked that she’d then also have to throw out her microwave and her cell phone. “How about taking a few minutes and fixing a home-cooked meal, sweetheart?” Imus chimed in.

    Finally, the group got to talking about abortion, which is always a great idea. Lis, who is pro-choice, and Deirdre, who is not, almost came to blows on the issue, which could have resulted in the need to enforce capital punishment, an issue on which they sort of agree; both are opposed, though Lis believes it should sometimes be applied.

    Then, they both lied to the I-Man and said they are not among the 64 percent of women who recently reported having faked an orgasm. “I don’t have to,” Deirdre proudly said.

    Which peaked Bernard’s interest. “Even with your husband?”
