2013 Inauguration, we’ve got your meme: Beyoncé performed “The National Anthem” wearing huuuuuge sparkly green earrings and swipes of cat eyes eyeliner. It’s no Aretha Franklin and her giant hat, but then again, what is?

Here Is James Franco’s Blithering, Awful, Embarrassing Poem About Obama

After a brief respite, James Franco is back to being The Worst, today unleashing his new poem, “Obama in Asheville,” which was supposedly written for the president’s inauguration or something.

The White House Is Sick Of Your Joke Petitions, Quadruples The Number Of Signatures Required For An Official Response

Attention, American public: The White House has seen your petitions about building a Death Starinvestigating the feasibility of building the Enterprise, and giving each state an official Pokémon. In one case they even responded in a particularly awesome way. But now they have another message for you: Cut it out, guys. It’s getting tired.

The Obamas Explain Their World-Famous Hug To Barbara Walters

Aww! The Obamas are SO CUTE together! During last night’s ABC News interview, Barbara Walters got all nosy and asked them, “How do you keep the fire going?” The look on President Obama’s face and his awkward laugh told Babs all she needed to know about that.

I don’t want to know [I do.

The Soapbox: You Don’t Have To Be A Parent To Be Worried About Guns

“We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years.  And each time I learn the news I react not as a President, but as anybody else would — as a parent.  And that was especially true today.  I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief…

Well Played: Michelle Obama Goes For The Gold

With apologies to Jackie O, I think Michelle Obama is the most stylish first lady this country has ever had, and her fashion choices just keep getting better. Case in point: the stunning Michael Kors gown she donned for the Kennedy Center Honors last night. With its glittering gold fabric and jeweled neckline, it’s a…

Karl Lagerfeld Is Either Getting Progressively Weirder Or Just Screwing With Us

It is fairly common knowledge that getting older directly corresponds with getting weirder. Karl Lagerfeld was pretty fucking weird to begin with, but now, at 79, I think it’s safe to say that the longtime Chanel designer is the weirdest. The Kaiser may not consider himself a “political person,” but he did take some interest…

The President Is Not Impressed

This might be one of the cutest photos of the president ever — here with Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney, both of them giving their very best “not impressed face.” We can only imagine all the things Obama might be not impressed with after this election season …

10 Things Obama Supporters Love About Tuesday’s Election

1. Our social media kicked your Super Pac’s ass. Sheldon Adelson, called by The New York Times, “the biggest single donor in political history” backed eight conservative Republican candidates through Super Pacs. None of them won. People have been wondering when America would have its social media driven “Arab Spring”? This was it.

2. Karl Rove’s

No More Ice Cream For Woman Who Called Obama N-Word On Facebook

Barack Obama Cries While Addressing Campaign HQ In Chicago

Oh, Lord, this made me cry. Yesterday, President Obama addressed his campaign staff at their Chicago headquarters in a very touching speech. It started with how impressed he is with them and the great things they are sure to accomplish in the future. But halfway through, the president’s voice wavers and tears start rolling down his cheeks. I love…

The Soapbox: The Election Is Over But I’m Still Scared

Originally appeared on Role/Reboot. Republished here with permission.

It’s over.

For a while, I managed to hold it together. There was pie to eat and wine to drink and a couch to sink gratefully into. There were friends to laugh with and sigh with, dishes to clean up, and an 8am meeting o…

Obama’s Girls Looked Gorgeous Last Night

Barack Obama came out on top in last night’s history-making election, and we couldn’t be happier (or more sedated — it takes a lot of Valium to get through that vote count). Of course, our president is the first to say that he’d never have gotten where he is without his girls behind him, and…

Key And Peele’s Victory Speech!

You watched President Obama’s victory speech? Now it’s time for Key and Peele’s victory speech as Obama and his “anger translator” Luther.  A lot of us would be as enthusiastic as Luther right now if weren’t so goddamn tired after last night.
Mila Kunis is going to produce a drama called “Meridian Hills” set…

Watch: Governor Mitt Romney’s Concession Speech & President Obama’s Victory Speech

Considering I thought it was very possible that we might not know who won the election until this morning or even days from now, I guess I should be grateful that the thing that kept me up waaaaaay past my bedtime was waiting for Gov. Mitt Romney to deliver his concession speech and President Obama…
