Scott Stapp is the lead singer of ’90s band Creed. Creed are a bunch of Nickleback Jrs. — they used to be, like, the most hated band in the world until Chad Kroeger and Co. unseated them. Nowadays, Stapp is busy punditing about the upcoming election on Fox News. He’d really like another Reagan, but… READ MORE »

While it never wins or loses the election on its own, having a simple slogan that defines your campaign can mean a lot, particularly with undecided voters.  So, in the best case scenario, it shouldn’t be totally stupid. Here, in no particular order, are the 20 dumbest American Presidential campaign slogans.

As we’ve previously discussed, voter suppression laws are kind of a big deal — specifically because they impact the poor, people of color, the elderly and students much more than anyone else. And since we — and we’re guessing, you — aren’t Ms. Moneybucks P. Cashly, we’ll likely be disproportionately impacted. That’s why we really appreciate… READ MORE »

Mitt Romney’s appearance on Spanish-language news channel Univision yesterday demonstrated a peril of modern politics as old as televised campaigns: men’s makeup. Ever since Richard Nixon refused professional makeup in favor of drugstore stubble-coverup for the first-ever televised debate against the youthfully radiant John F. Kennedy in 1960 — a choice many say cost him… READ MORE »

Hello, 2012 election! Here’s your friendly reminder that reproductive rights issues are not as black and white (i.e. BAD BAD BAD) as anti-abortion extremists might think. In fact, sometimes the families of politicians themselves need … you know … choices.

Noted politics website TMZ has exclusively learned that the gestational surrogate used by… READ MORE »

Michigan Supreme Court candidate Bridget Mary McCormack has the campaign ad to trump all campaign ads: her sister Mary McCormack was on “The West Wing” and pulled some strings to get the cast together and film this amazing four-minute long Aaron Sorkin-style ad. All my old favorites are back — Donna! CJ! Josh! — and… READ MORE »

I think Mitt Romney is my favorite reality show of all time. He just keeps the gaffes coming. The joy (and horror) in Romney’s campaign relies on his bizarre verbal blunders, and thanks to his campaign’s Twitter, the gold keeps coming. Check out this video where I turn some of Romney’s classic lines from his… READ MORE »

Leaked video of a May Mitt Romney fundraiser—in which the candidate calls half the country self-proclaimed ‘victims’—has the pundits swarming, with some saying it just might cost him the election. Here’s what they’re saying:

The video “has killed Mitt Romney’s campaign for president,” writes Josh Barro at Bloomberg.”Romney already has trouble relating to… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

And on a completely shallow note, Michelle Obama looked amazing in a Tracy Reese dress at last night’s Democratic National Convention — but it was her nail polish that caught my eye. Upon closer inspection — I couldn’t sleep, okay? — the polish appears to be a blue-ish grey color, possibly in tribute to the… READ MORE »

Did you watch the televised coverage of the first night of the Democratic National Convention? I did! Now, full disclosure, though I’m sure you guys already know this — I am far-left-leaning lady, and while I’m no fan of the two-party system, I’m obviously more inclined to agree with the Democratic Party’s platform. I’m a… READ MORE »

The look on President Obama’s face as he and his daughters watch First Lady Michelle Obama deliver her speech (which she wrote!) at the Democratic National Convention tonight says it all: “You got this, babe.” Michelle Obama absolutely knocked it out of the park and her husband looks proud indeed.

Democratic activists are trying to draft a convention speaker even older than surprise Republican speaker Clint Eastwood.
