Meghan McCain Takes Potshots At President Obama For His Interview With Ryan Seacrest

Meghan McCain came out swinging at Barack Obama on a recent visit to “The Tonight Show.” The daughter of re-elected Arizona Senator John McCain stopped by Jay Leno’s couch to promote her new book, Dirty Sexy Politics. A mere 45 seconds in, she criticized Obama for doing an interview on “On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” which aired on Election Day, to urge young people to vote. “If I were President Obama I would be very nervous and not necessarily doing serious interviews with Ryan Seacrest,” Meghan sniped. “I would be a lot more concerned with what the American public was thinking.” Keep reading »

Oopsie! Bristol Palin Forgot To Vote

“I did not send in my absentee ballots to Alaska. I’m going to be in trouble. Sorry, mom!”

Bristol Palin on neglecting her civic duty. “Dancing With the Stars” is waaay more important to the future of our country. I never cease to be amazed at the values that Mama Grizz imbued her with. Sarah Palin must be kvelling. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Why Right-Wing Fruitcakes And Liberal Weenies Can’t Fall In Love

I don’t think it’s possible for two people of opposing political beliefs to date and fall in love. If Romeo & Juliet were written today, the beloved daughter of the Capulets would kick the emo son of the Montagues in the face before he made it over the balcony. It’s more likely that two people of different races, socioeconomic backgrounds, or religions get it on than two people who belong to different political parties. Forget the obnoxious swirling graphics on cable news — politics is not a sport. It’s a bloodless war that decides how groups of people live with one another, and like any war, it’s a struggle to hold on to one’s humanity. But I think it’s almost impossible for a liberal to look at a conservative, or vice versa, and see anything but an enemy. This is great when it comes to a turf war between political mafias. But it’s bad news when it comes to love. Keep reading »

Kanye West Hurt George W. Bush’s Feelings

“I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn’t like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to [Hurricane] Katrina represented an all-time low. … I still feel that way. … As you read those words, I felt ‘em when I heard ‘em, felt ‘em when I wrote ‘em and I felt ‘em when I’m listening to ‘em.”

—George W. Bush says in his new book, Decision Points, that the “all-time low” of his presidency was when Kanye West said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” And, err, not 9/11, or sending the first troops to Iraq, or hearing about the actual destruction in New Orleans after the hurricane. Interesting. [People] Keep reading »

Why We Voted: For Gay Marriage, For Immigration Reform, And For Those Little “I Voted!” Stickers

Happy Election Day — yes, an end to campaign commercials on TV is in sight! Whether you dragged yourself out of bed before work, will stand in line at the polls before going home tonight, or plan to do it mid-day, all that matters is that you exercise your right to vote! Yesterday, I asked readers to tell us why they’re going to vote and share with us the state they live in and races they’re passionate about. Not only did your responses crack me up, but it was really cool to see that The Frisky has readers everywhere from Kentucky to Louisiana to Texas. Also: you are a bunch of bleeding heart liberals. After the jump, find out how the rest of the Friskyverse is votin’ (and try not to wet your pants, OK?). Keep reading »

Queens Of The World?

Troubled waters ahead for Tea Partier Christine O’Donnell! But Sarah Palin’s got her back. Should we tell them there’s a giant iceberg just ’round the bend or just watch them go down? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
