Music: An Election Day Mixtape

Campaign songs have caused more of a ruckus in this presidential race than teenage pregnancy and extra-marital affairs combined. It all started with a John scandal, when John McCain stole “Our Country” by John Cougar Mellencamp from John Edwards after he got axed in the primaries. Then, Mellencamp told McCain to stop using the track, because the liberal musician didn’t want his tune affiliated with the Republican candidate. After that, hippie balladeer Jackson Browne sued McCain’s campaign to protest the use of his “Running On Empty” in an attack ad against Barack Obama. So, we here at the Frisky decided to put together a voting day soundtrack that everyone can groove to. We might have some differences on our ballots, but our booties bump to the same beats. After the jump, The Frisky’s Election Day Mixtape. 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 »
