Obama's 2012 DNC Speech

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 FlukeBubba Clinton, or these other speeches, either.) Enjoy!

"It easily could have been any one of you."

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!

Say It With Me -- ARITHMETIC!

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.

Obama "Forcing" Gay Marriage On Americans

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]

Get The Look: Michelle Obama’s Awesome Blueish-Grey Nail Polish

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 Democratic Party, but more likely just further proof that she’s naturally fierce in the style department. I’m not sure what brand/color she was wearing, but I found a few similar shades — check ‘em out, after the jump! Keep reading »

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 progressive — pro-choice, pro-marriage equality, pro-immigration, etc. — and my opinions on what’s said at the RNC and DNC reflect those beliefs. But politics aside… Keep reading »

President Obama And The Girls Watch Michelle Obama Nail Convention Speech

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. More on the DNC first thing tomorrow, but I couldn’t resist posting this now. Night y’all!

Dems Want Betty White To Counter Clint Eastwood

Democratic activists are trying to draft a convention speaker even older than surprise Republican speaker Clint Eastwood. A social media campaign has been launched to bring Betty White, the last surviving Golden Girl, to the Democratic National Convention this week, reports ABC. White, who endorsed Obama in May, turned 90 this year, and the president recorded a birthday message asking to see her long-form birth certificate. Read more…

Nicki's A Republican?!

Nicki Minaj is supposedly a Republican voting for Mitt Romney (just for financial reasons, though). In a new Lil Wayne mixtape, Nicki raps “I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / you lazy bitches is fucking up the economy.” Didn’t see that one coming. However, considering Nicki’s next lyrics are about being in Miami “chilling with a zombie,” maybe she’s taking some creative liberties? But who the hell knows. Remember when Kelly Clarkson and Michelle Branch turned out to be Ron Paul fans?  [NYMag.com]
