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 »
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 »
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 »
In his election night speech, President-elect Barack Obama told his daughters they had earned a puppy, and speculation over what type of dog the family should get began. Michelle has said they will be getting a shelter dog, but with Malia’s allergies, it needs to be hypoallergenic one.
No matter where the Obamas’ dog comes from — the pound or a breeder — it has to be photogenic, for sure. We bet your dogs are awfully attractive, so we want you to send canine photos and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with the reason your dog would be the perfect presidential pet. Next week, we’ll post the cutest dogs and award one the title of First Dog.
UPDATE: Barack Obama responded to the question at a press conference today… Keep reading »
A friend sent me this video, of the President-Elect and the soon-to-be First Lady, doing a little happy dance together behind the scenes at one of his rallies, not knowing a camera was capturing the moment. At the end you can see Barack mouth in his Michelle’s ear, “I love you so much.” My friend wrote: “She’s a big cheerleader of his and keeps him in line at the same time…men flourish around that behavior. Behind every good man is an extraordinary woman. How can you watch that and ever, ever settle?” To which I thought, “Damn straight.” Keep reading »
Last night, an African-American man made television history! Sure, Barack has got our future in his very capable hands, but Will.i.am transported us straight into “Star Trek” territory! That’s right, the beat box behind the Black Eyed Peas, who also made the very viral “Yes We Can” video, was teleported into the CNN studio from Grant Park in Chicago. At a such a crucial time in our history, Anderson Cooper united nerds across this great land by saying, “Let’s see if we can beam him in.” Then, right there, before our very eyes, the first man ever in hologram, FOR REAL, on national television!
Okay, so Will.i.am got it a little mixed up and said he felt like he was in “Star Wars.” But, Cooper quickly corrected him that, much like cell phones, it was in fact The Trek that was responsible for this kind of totally awesome technology! [FYI, "Star Wars" had pre-recorded hologram messages ("Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.") but could not beam people anywhere, though that sure would have come in handy.] Sigh, we love the Coop!

Come January 20, the White House will have some new residents. The highly attractive Obamas look like the cutest, most well-balanced couple ever, but it wasn’t always that way. Even this seemingly perfect couple had some hard times. Below, a run-down of Barck and Michelle’s relationship. We hope their PDAs won’t stop now that he’s been elected. Keep reading »
