Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

By now you’ve heard the totally unsubstantiated rumor that Michelle Obama might be pregnant. The chances of it being true are slim. After all, having just turned 45 years old, Michelle is of the age where it’s very difficult to conceive naturally, and something tells me that she and Barack (Is it disrespectful to be on a — one-sided — first name basis with the President and the First Lady?) aren’t making top secret trips to the fertility clinic. So, knowing this rumor is most likely going to end up being just that — a rumor — we can’t help but feel a little giddy at the thought of an Obama baby. Five reasons why, after the jump… Keep reading »
The word “change” is often associated with President Obama, and he certainly got down to business during his first week in office. Not only did he sign an order to shut down the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Obama also issued an informal order calling for a “business casual” dress code on weekends.
Of course, this is most certainly not his most important act as president so far, but it does say a lot about the man. Former President George W. Bush wouldn’t allow anyone to enter the Oval Office without a coat and tie, even on weekends. Already, Obama has already been photographed without his jacket during the week, and wearing slacks and a sweater for a meeting with his chief economic advisor on the weekend.
And the weekend dress code isn’t the only difference between the Obama White House and the Bush White House. Obama’s arrives at work at 9am, rather than the crack of dawn, and he has been seen working as late as 10pm. The refrigerators are stocked with his favorite Honest Tea Flavors, Black Forest Berry and Green Dragon, and he wants to get rid of the green and white plates in the Oval Office: “I’m not really a plates kind of guy.” [NY Times] Keep reading »
- According to MediaTakeout.com, the National Enquirer (we know, quality sources, right?) is poised to report that The First Lady apparently didn’t like the way Beyonce was making goo-goo eyes at her man, President Obama, and threatened to ban her from the inaugural festivities. [Media Takeout]

Ever since Barack Obama began campaigning for the presidency, designers of a wide range of products have latched on to his marketability. And, at last, good old American pride seems to have gotten high fashion cred. Photographer Bruce Weber shot two models wearing Obama shirts with designer skirts and head pieces for Italian Vogue, and Elle‘s Kate Lanphear showed her presidential approval on Inauguration Day by sporting an “Obama Mama” tee. But Obama-fever isn’t relegated to T-shirts. A model who looks a little bit like our president closed Lanvin’s Fall 2009 show in Sunday. Hooray for the U.S.A.!
The anti-choice organization, CatholicVote.org has put together this advertisement which argues against abortion using Obama as its proof that abortion is wrong. After all, IMAGINE THE POTENTIAL. If Barack Obama had been aborted, he would have never been President and…wait…defended Roe V. Wade. Uh, okay, whatever. Anyway, if Obama has been aborted, he wouldn’t have been President, and then the universe would be screwed, and the American people wouldn’t have a rock star hottie for a leader, so therefore abortion is wrong! But wait, let’s imagine the potential of other coulda-been-aborted people — Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden, Spencer Pratt…the argument goes both way, peeps. [AdFreak] Keep reading »
Listen, I’m not going to attempt to explain this video. What does it all mean? I have no clue. One thing is for sure. It’s fascinating. On Fox 2 News in Detroit, a sexpert takes to the airwaves for a segment called “The Love Doctor” to reveal what the intimate relationship of Michelle and Barack Obama is really like. Kiki T has already gone there, but I’m down for a second opinion. Fox’s sexpert says there’s a lot of affection between them. “They do a lot of touching,” she says, “kissing,” she continues, “even fisting.” WHAT??? What did she just say??? She said fisting! Wait, does she mean fisting or fisting? Whichever, I can’t imagine George and Laura did a lot of that in the White House. Keep reading »
Today is Blog For Choice day, when pro-choice bloggers everywhere “raise the profile of reproductive rights in the blogosphere,” while commemorating Roe V. Wade, which celebrates its 36th anniversary today. Each year, Blog For Choice poses a question and ask the blogosphere to answer and this year’s is especially timely, given the inauguration of President Barack Obama. “What is your pro-choice hope for President Obama and/or the new Congress?” My hope is that Obama and Congress will work together to redistribute the money spent on abstinence only education the last eight years and put it towards comprehensive and compassionate sex education. Everyone, pro-choice and anti-choice, wants abortion statistics to go down and the only way to get there is by making sure everyone, particularly teenagers, understands how to protect themselves from pregnancy (and STDs). So what’s your pro-choice hope for President Obama and/or Congress? Answer in the comments! Anti-choice? Sorry! [Blog For Choice] Keep reading »
