Quote Of The Day: Tyson Beckford Would Sleep With Barack Obama

“I don’t actually go that way, though I notice a lot of people think I do. But umm, you know what, if I’m-a do it, I’m going for [Barack] Obama. If I got with him, I could run the country. If I was that way, Obama, I’d be gunning for you brother! I’d be the one in control. That’s if I was that way. Who you gonna go for? Will Smith? Somebody pretty like that? Not to say Obama’s not pretty. But I’d go straight for Obama because you got power then. You could run red lights and just wild out. And I’d have Michelle [Obama] hold the camera!”

Tyson Beckford answering this question: “If you had to spend the night with a man, who would it be and why?” [Black Voices] Keep reading »

Crave: “Kids’ Letters To President Obama” Book

Lately, the politicos have been hitting President Obama with a lot of criticism, and it seems everyone would like to tell our president what to do: “Don’t eat junk food. Junk food makes you fat”; “I know you want to save the earth, but people don’t want to clean”; “You should not smoke when you are president! Because you will die by smoking, and then you will not be president!”

Well, at least, that’s what America’s kids have to say to him, and they do so every day by sending thousands of letters to the White House. Kids’ Letters to President Obama, edited by Bill Adler, compiles 200 of some of the more hilarious notes. Read some selections on McSweeney’s, like our favorite so far:

“Dear President Obama,
I want to tell you hi. Do you work with Santa Claus? Can I meet you in your house? Can I say bye to you after I meet you? And then can I meet you again? And then again after that?

Sergio Magana, age 5
San Francisco”

Chris Andersen’s biography of the Obamas, Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage, comes out today, and in it he dishes on a lot more than the first couple’s date night. According to Andersen, women are constantly rubbing up against Barack, slipping him their digits, and whispering suggestive comments in his ear. “On more than one occasion, Barack tried not to look startled when some random woman in the crowd would grasp him firmly by the derriere — and sometimes try to hold on,” writes Andersen. After one rally on the campaign trail, Barack supposedly said, “Jesus, I wish they’d stop grabbing my ass.” Keep reading »
