Oh James Franco.

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 poem reads like a boring Wiki of all the things James learned in English 101, and then veers off to talk about getting a burrito at the burrito shop. It includes references to more than two dozen other authors (that James Franco clearly believes he’s in the company of) an also mentions the graduate class James Franco’s teaching; James Franco in Spiderman; James Franco’s Academy Awards; James Franco attending a Vanity Fair dinner — wait a sec, what does this have to do with Obama again?

The full text of this lousy “poem” is after the jump (and NB to JF: putting a poorly written screed into stanzas does not a poem make). Keep reading »

Obama Unveils $500M Gun Plan

President Obama and Joe Biden laid out their gun control plan at the White House today, calling for a $500 million program in front of a number of children who had written the president asking that he tackle gun violence. Biden got the first word, boasting that his team had consulted 229 groups, from law enforcement to gun advocacy organizations, along with mayors, governors, and congressmembers, before making its recommendations. “The world has changed, and it’s demanding action,” he said. Read more…

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.

To that end, We the People—whitehouse.gov’s official petition site–is upping the number of signatures required for an official White House response from 25,000 to 100,000. Read more…

"That's My Honey Giving Me A Hug"

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.

“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 that I do.”

– President Obama’s statement on the Sandy Hook School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

I have never been happier to see my daughter than the moment on Friday evening when I picked her up from her Girl Scouts pizza party. I made a beeline for her, hugged the stuffing out of her, kissed her and repeated. The repeat treatment was on behalf of a friend who does not have children, but loves her friends’ children as her own. Keep reading »

In case you missed it, here is President Obama’s beautiful speech, delivered at last night’s vigil for those killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting on Friday, which took the lives of six educators and 20 6- and 7-year-old children. “Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?” the President asks, in direct reference to our country’s need for stricter gun control laws. Amen, sir. And may those who were lost rest in peace.

In case you needed more proof that our president is awesome, check out this clip of Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the most recent round of “Star Trek” movies, describing the first time he met President Obama on the campaign trail. “He gave me the … Vulcan salute,” Quinto explains, “And I was like, ‘I really want to hang out with you so much more now. You’re cool.’” Sigh. This story warms my nerdy, liberal heart. [Team Coco]
