    Barack Obama And His BlackBerry

    Over the course of the presidential campaign, Barack Obama was photographed many, many times with his hands glued to his BlackBerry, or with it attached to his hip in a holster. Soon, Obama’s love affair with his PDA may end. When he moves into the White House this January, his correspondence will be collected under the Presidential Records Act, and there is always the risk of messages being intercepted. No president has been able to have email, and it doesn’t look like Obama will be able to break that barrier. After the jump, read made-up email and text messages Obama would send if he were able to use his BlackBerry while in office. Keep reading »

    Mind Of Man: How I Learned To Approximate Something Called Love

    Hi, I’m single. Like, what’s up with that? Word. Can I buy you a vodka tonic, super fox?

    Okay – let me interrupt for a second, and preempt our regularly scheduled programming to get some things off my hairy, muscular, barrel chest. I’m guessing you heard that the guy with the lizard neck lost the presidential election to the guy with the lady fingers, right? So…

    I normally make a conscious choice to reject the idea of identity politics, which is to say, to gravitate towards politicians who are just like me, either ideologically, or, on a more base level, culturally. I am instantly distrustful of politicians who tell me they drink beer just like me, or listen to the music I listen to, or who suggest that I vote for them because their biological fortunes confer an expertise others cannot possibly claim. These notions are nothing more than cheap, aspirational lies. Keep reading »

    Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week of November 11th 2008

    MUSIC

    • Taylor Swift Fearless
      A few 18-year-olds are releasing records today, but she’s already been on the Billboard charts. Taylor’s new country album is about love, so I guess the title, “Fearless,” is appropriate. But I’m more excited to see what she’s planning on doing with Def Leopard.

    Introducing First Dog Maddie And Other Presidential Puppy Hopefuls

    After looking through many seriously cute pictures, we at The Frisky were convinced by a campaign video (not unlike Barack Obama’s 30-minute TV spot) and have decided to award Maddie the Mastiff the title of First Dog. After the jump, the contenders. Believe me, the race was a tough one. Keep reading »

    Really, Lindsay Lohan? REALLY?

    In case you’re too embarrassed to watch the actual video, Lindsay says about the election, “It was really exciting. It’s an amazing feeling. It’s our first colored president.” I know she dropped out of school in, like, 8th grade, but this is pretty inexcusable. Still, I guess this is what you get for asking asinine people their opinions. Sigh, it seems like only five seconds ago that we liked her! Keep reading »

    Do Or Don’t: Asking Permission Before First Kiss

    Earlier this week, we found out that President-elect Barack Obama and Michelle Obama shared their first kiss over Baskin-Robbins ice cream and he actually asked permission before leaning in. This got me thinking about my past first kisses. Like Barack (yeah, we’re on a first name basis.), my current boyfriend asked permission before he kissed me. It was our third date and I thought, “Can’t he pick up the signals that I’m dying to kiss him?” Heck, I was ready to kiss him on the first date, but he was a gentleman and waited an appropriate amount of time before things got physical. What do YOU think about asking permission before a first kiss? Keep reading »
