Strippers, Guns & Booty Shaking: Behold, The Most Offensive Political Ad Ever


Strippers, guns, rap music, booty shaking, gangstas … why, it’s the most offensive, sexist, racist political ad you’ve ever seen. This NSFW commercial called “Hahn’s Homeboyz” begins to criticize Janice Hahn, a Los Angeles City Councilwoman running for a Democratic Congressional seat, for her proposal to use “taxpayer money” to hire former gang members in prison “so they could rape and kill again!” I mean, so they could teach current gang members how to quit the life.

But no matter. There’s race-baiting to be had. Keep reading »

Barack Obama On Being A Dad

“I grew up without a father around. I have certain memories of him taking me to my first jazz concert and giving me my first basketball as a Christmas present. But he left when I was two years old.

Just a few days after the world got a peek at Anthony Weiner’s wiener, his spokesperson made a big announcement—Weiner is taking a leave of absence from his post on Capitol Hill to “seek professional treatment to focus on becoming a better husband and healthier person.” In other words, like sex scandalites Jesse James and Tiger Woods before him—who I should point out, had actual sex a lot in the scandals that cost them their wives and reputations—Anthony is checking into sex rehab. Here’s hoping Weiner gets some good therapy and learns what he was seeking in sending out sexy emails to six different women despite being married.

But at the same time, the newest Weiner pic to surface might be the most damaging. Yeah, even more damaging than his peen shot. Keep reading »
