    Slideshow: Obamas All Over Each Other

    Campaigning for the upcoming presidential election is winding down, but we thought you might like to revisit some tender moments the Obamas had while visiting state after state after state. Do you think they’ve had sex in all 50 yet? Keep reading »

    Michelle And Barack Obama Steal Each Other’s Material

    Apparently Michelle and Barack Obama didn’t have a chance to discuss who was going to share a particular story about how cute their 10-year-old daughter Malia is. On Monday night, Michelle went on “The Tonight Show” and told Jay Leno that Malia didn’t want her dad’s 30-minute commercial to interrupt her favorite TV channels. Then, on “The Daily Show” last night, Barack shared the same anecdote with Jon Stewart. In our opinion, Michelle did a better job with her delivery. Keep reading »

    Prince + Obama: What Barack Would Look Like With Feathered Hair

    So today, from Ryan Adams to Bloc Party, all this great new music came out! But if we had one fantasy album we’d like to see fulfilled, it’d be this hot piece by Jamie Boling. Last week, at the World of Wonder Gallery in LA, (known for eccentric shows like the ”Golden Gals Gone Wild Show” which featured an S&M Betty White), proudly displayed a hybrid that will give you an even bigger charge than the environmentally sound car: Barack Obama + Prince= one sexy motherf**ker!

    Slideshow: All The Presidential Candidates’ Accessories

    Because Barack Obama and John McCain are stuck in suits most of the time, the only chance we have to see their style is in the accessories. Now, we think some of the lapel pins that the candidates and their wives have been wearing are a little much — we’re in a recession, people, you shouldn’t be wearing so many diamonds, even if they are fake! Michelle Obama has completely nailed her accessories. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, has gone overboard. Keep reading »

    Anti-Palin Ad Features Rape Victim

    A few weeks ago, we wrote about a story on Politico.com that reported the Obama campaign was seeking a rape victim for a campaign ad that would attack Sarah Palin’s stance on abortion. (The VP nominee is anti-choice, even in cases of rape or incest.) According to the Politico piece, the Family Violence Prevention Fund, served as a conduit between the campaign. Since running that post, we hadn’t heard any further information on whether the Obama campaign did indeed find a woman for their ad, but I just came up on the video above, via The Huffington Post. The ad features a rape victim, who became pregnant as the result of her attack, addressing Palin about her stance on abortion. This ad, however, was put out by Women Against McCain-Palin and it doesn’t have the “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message” sound bite at the end, so it’s not affiliated with his official campaign. Regardless, the video above is extremely compelling. Keep reading »

    Abortion & The “Health” Of The Mother

    During last night’s final presidential debate, in addition to stroking Joe The Plumber’s ego, John McCain used oh-so-retro air quotes to emphasize his stance on abortion and abortion legislation.

    Just again, the example of the eloquence of Senator Obama. He’s [for] health for the mother. You know, that’s been stretched by the pro-abortion movement in America to mean almost anything. That’s the extreme pro-abortion position, quote, ‘health.’

    All the air quotes really did was call my attention to that notion — the health of the mother — and what that really means. By the tone of McCain’s fingers, you’d think that means when the woman has a cold, she can have a late-term abortion. So I decided to find out, in general, what the “health of the mother” really entails. Keep reading »
