TV Personality
    (November 24, 1981- )
    Born in King George County, Virginia
    Birth name was Krystal Marie Ball
    Democrat
    Businesswoman, certified public accountant
    Ran as the Democratic Party nominee for United States Congress in Virginia's 1st congressional district
    Lost to Republican Rob Wittman in the 2010 midterm elections
    Regular contributor to the Huffington Post and Glamour Magazine
    Co-host on MSNBC's 'The Cycle' (June 2012 to July 2015)
    Her name provokes an endless line of lame jokes about her being a psychic.
    Over 72% of her campaign was funded by out-of-state donors.
    She came to national attention when photos, taken in 2004, emerged showing her at a holiday party dressed as a 'naughty Santa.'
    The photos also showed her sucking a red dildo attached to her then-husband's nose, leading him around on a leash.
    Ironically, the scandal only helped to raise her profile, getting her booked on every mainstream media outlet to comment on issues of gender roles during an election season largely dominated by conservative female politicians on the Right.
    She upped the ante in the Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke feud by launching a website calling for a boycott of some 100 of his radio show's advertisers. The initiative met with only marginal success, and the boycott eventually died out.
    She openly wondered whether or not the Oscars' Best Actor/Actress categories were sexist, saying 'it seems kind of anachronistic to me that the separate the men and the women in the awards... Why can’t they all compete against each other?'
    She was pranked by the Howard Stern Show's<300> <9723>Captain Janks during a news segment on crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in Ukraine. The video of the segment went viral.
    Most of the humor in the situation came less from the caller's dryly assessing that 'it would appear that the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern's ass' than Krystal's nonchalant, largely oblivious, reaction to it, prompting Janks to retort ' you're a dumbass, aren't you?'
    She is a lifelong member of the NRA.
    Her father was a physicist who studied crystals.
    As such, her birth name wasn't necessarily meant as some 'cruel joke.'
    She traveled to Louisiana to assist in the courts' efforts to recover after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
    Yes, 'Crystal Ball' should have seen Janks coming. Or at least the production staff should have.
    Maybe she just mistook it for the colorful language of a seasoned military officer? Nah...
    She was ranked #21 in Forbes Magazine's Top 25 Most Powerful Women Of The Midterm Elections (2010).
    She is a rare liberal feminist who openly praised Sarah Palin's folksiness and ability to balance work and family.
    She released a Facebook post in response to her 'reindeer games' scandal, reading 'society has to accept that women of my generation have sexual lives that are going to leak into the public sphere. Sooner or later, this is a reality that has to be faced, or many young women in my generation will not be able to run for office.'
