Obama is looking at that Brazilian’s booty like she’s the answer to the economic crisis. Hardly! Click here to read why this pic is totes misleading — not that we would blame him for lookin’. Keep reading »
In the popularity contest that is D.C. politics, Barack Obama bested John McCain back in November. But recent polls have shown that if Barack were stacked up against his wife, Michelle, in a Great Big High School Cafeteria, he’d be sweating it out at the dork table.
In a recent Harris poll, 68 percent of Americans said they view the First Lady favorably, while a different Harris poll also recent showed Barack’s favorability rating is 54 percent.
That means Michelle’s got, like, almost three out of the four Plastics from “Mean Girls” behind her. And of course Michelle is more popular—her husband is the one regulating your cigarettes. But with great power comes great responsibility! She can’t pass legislation, but she can turn our attention to worthy causes while we drool over her J.Crew.
Here’s our spank bank wish list of how Michelle can use her Cool Kid Status for good, not evil… Keep reading »
Lots of people have, understandably, been scrutinizing President Obama and his various decisions and policy moves since becoming President. But one GOP group in Maryland has taken it a little too far. Joyce Thoman, president of the Republican Women of Anne Arundel County posted a letter on the group’s website stating that Obama and Hitler have a lot in common. Yes, Hitler. Last time I checked, comparing anyone to a guy who orchestrated the genocide of 6 million Jews is just not kosher.
Here are other choice pieces from her letter.

Obama may puff on a cigarette every now and then, but that doesn’t mean he thinks it’s okay for you to do it. On Monday, he signed a bill that will seriously regulate cancer sticks. Under this bill, the Food and Drug Administration gets to rule over tobacco companies with an iron fist. By January, cigarette companies will have to register with the FDA and offer up a list of the ingredients in everything they’re making. The president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids called this “the strongest action the federal government has ever taken to reduce tobacco use.” [USA Today] Keep reading »
Sasha and Malia Obama must be two of the only girls on in the country who aren’t embarrassed by their father. Sure, he makes a corny joke every now and then, but come on—in addition to the whole being president thing, he dresses well, plays a mean game of basketball, and got them the puppy they’d been begging for all year. Not to mention that, about a week before being inaugurated, he wrote an open letter to them in Parade Magazine. “I know that you’ve both had a lot of fun these last two years on the campaign trail, going to picnics and parades and state fairs, eating all sorts of junk food your mother and I probably shouldn’t have let you have. But I also know that it hasn’t always been easy for you,” he wrote. “When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me—about how I’d make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world with all your curiosity and mischief and those smiles that never fail to fill my heart and light up my day. And suddenly, all my big plans for myself didn’t seem so important anymore. I soon found that the greatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours.”
Yeah, that made me a little teary, too. Barack Obama takes being a father very seriously. Which makes sense considering that his own dad—a Kenyan man who fell in love with a white midwestern woman while studying at the University of Hawaii—left when Barack was two. Keep reading »
When I watched this, I was pretty impressed with Obama’s fast hands and ninja-like focus. When a fly buzzes around my head there’s usually nothing I can do, but Obama smacked that little sucker dead. PETA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, however, were not pleased. This crazy organization said they wished he had not killed the bug. They’re sending him a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, which allows people to trap a bug inside and release it later. Puhleeeze! PETA needs to realize that if they continue to get upset about things like killing flies NO ONE is going to take them seriously. Wait, too late. [AP]
