Guys, the 2012 presidential election is nigh! And with less than two months to go before the next president is elected, y’all need to get your voting ducks in a row. If you’re not registered, or not sure where you’re registered, or are concerned about weird, restrictive new voter ID laws in your states, we’ll give you the resources to make it to the booth on time.

Okay, maybe not his blood — but definitely his tax returns. The porn broker took out full page ads in The Washington Post and USA Today, soliciting information on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s financials. Romney has released tax returns for 2011 and 2010, but has repeatedly stated that he will not make available any additional tax information.
Flynt’s offer comes at a perfect time: earlier in the week, an anonymous source claimed he had stolen several of Romney’s past tax returns, and was holding the information ransom for $1 million dollars. Perhaps they’ll link up.
This isn’t the first time the Hustler publisher has offered cash for political information. An avowed Democrat, Flynt similarly offered money for information about Republican sex scandals during President Clinton’s term. [WPTV]
You might have missed President Obama’s speech last night at the Democratic National Convention if you were watching the VMAs (and throwing things at the television when Rihanna and Chris Brown kissed) instead. Or maybe you were crying in the fetal position over the news that Will Arnett and Amy Poehler are dunzo. Also totally legitimate. But the president’s speech was pretty great and worth watching today. (And don’t miss Sandra Fluke, Bubba Clinton, or these other speeches, either.) Enjoy!
Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student who became a household name earlier this year when she spoke in front of Congress about access to affordable birth control — and was subsequently called a “slut” by Rush Limbaugh — spoke at the Democratic National Convention last night, focusing on the ways in which a Romney administration would have a negative impact on the lives of women. Watch it above!
I swear to Bubba, after Bill Clinton’s epic 50-or-so minute speech — the majority of which was off-prompter and went about 30 minutes longer than scheduled — at the second night of the Democratic National Convention, I felt like I deserved a degree in political science, a cigarette, and a cold shower. Damn. Watch it all above.
I thought the very intense lady who claims she “survived” an abortion, despite the fact that logic makes no sense, was the most guffaw-inducing campaign ad of the 2012 election. Wrong! It’s this anti-gay marriage scaremongering ad about how President Obama is “forcing” gay marriage on Americans, which is seemingly targeted at your racist grandma who worried that integrating the schools was “forcing” interracial marriage. If you can spare a moment away from your mandatory butt-sex, you should give it a watch. [YouTube]
