    Slideshow: All The Presidential Candidates’ Accessories

    Because Barack Obama and John McCain are stuck in suits most of the time, the only chance we have to see their style is in the accessories. Now, we think some of the lapel pins that the candidates and their wives have been wearing are a little much — we’re in a recession, people, you shouldn’t be wearing so many diamonds, even if they are fake! Michelle Obama has completely nailed her accessories. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, has gone overboard. Keep reading »

    Anti-Palin Ad Features Rape Victim

    A few weeks ago, we wrote about a story on Politico.com that reported the Obama campaign was seeking a rape victim for a campaign ad that would attack Sarah Palin’s stance on abortion. (The VP nominee is anti-choice, even in cases of rape or incest.) According to the Politico piece, the Family Violence Prevention Fund, served as a conduit between the campaign. Since running that post, we hadn’t heard any further information on whether the Obama campaign did indeed find a woman for their ad, but I just came up on the video above, via The Huffington Post. The ad features a rape victim, who became pregnant as the result of her attack, addressing Palin about her stance on abortion. This ad, however, was put out by Women Against McCain-Palin and it doesn’t have the “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message” sound bite at the end, so it’s not affiliated with his official campaign. Regardless, the video above is extremely compelling. Keep reading »

    Abortion & The “Health” Of The Mother

    During last night’s final presidential debate, in addition to stroking Joe The Plumber’s ego, John McCain used oh-so-retro air quotes to emphasize his stance on abortion and abortion legislation.

    Just again, the example of the eloquence of Senator Obama. He’s [for] health for the mother. You know, that’s been stretched by the pro-abortion movement in America to mean almost anything. That’s the extreme pro-abortion position, quote, ‘health.’

    All the air quotes really did was call my attention to that notion — the health of the mother — and what that really means. By the tone of McCain’s fingers, you’d think that means when the woman has a cold, she can have a late-term abortion. So I decided to find out, in general, what the “health of the mother” really entails. Keep reading »

    Eight Things Joe The Plumber Should Do With His 15 Minutes Of Fame

    In last night’s final presidential debate, “Joe The Plumber” was mentioned by the candidates NINE times. You know what that means? Joe The Plumber is famous! More famously than Joe Six-Pack even! So who the hell IS Joe The Plumber, besides an obviously perfect name for a stock porn character? Well, turns out Joe The Plumber is, in fact, a real dude by the name of Joe Wurzelbacher. Hailing from Toledo, Ohio, the reason why he was discussed so frequently during the debate is because Joe plans to open his own plumbing business. McCain alleges that under Obama’s tax plan, Joe’s taxes would be raised because his small business could make more than $250,000; Obama says that his desire isn’t to punish successful small business owners like Joe, it’s that he wants to spread the wealth and allow other people to succeed as well. Whatever — you can decide how you feel about their tax plans when you go to vote on November 4th. More important, however, is what Joe The Plumber is going to do with his newfound fame! Acting as his imaginary agent/manager, I have some ideas… Keep reading »

    Biden Injects Some Tranquility Into The Campaign

    Although the presidential election is less than a month away, Senator Joe Biden has been looking more tranquil lately. He and Senator Barack Obama are ahead in the polls, but I seriously doubt that they are resting easy until November 4. So what could have Biden looking a little more calm and less wrinkled?

    Poll: Proof That John McCain Hates Babies?

    Yesterday we posted about the new website “Yes We Can (Hold Babies)”, a blog comprised of adorable Pro-Obama babies and babies being held by the Democratic Presidential candidate. Then we noticed a strange thing: while it’s easy to find plenty of Associated Press photos of Obama holding and smooching little rugrats, McCain is rarely photographed with babies (see above EXCLUSIVE PROOF). Of the results for McCain, none of them actually featured the Senator HOLDING a child, though one was of him standing in front of a picture of a fetus. So what does this mean? Does the photographic record show that McCain HATES babies? Weigh in! Keep reading »

    Barack “That One” Obama & John McCain Debate: 15 Random Things We Noticed

    Second Presidential debate down, one more to go before we vote in November! Hooray! Last night’s debate between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain was done in the “town hall” style, in which Average Joe (Sixpacks!) asked some of the questions, while moderator Tom Brokaw directed. While mind-numbingly boring at times, most pundits from all the major networks agree — Obama took this one, hands down. But what were the real highlights of the night? My observations, after the jump… Keep reading »
