President Demands Gov’t Contractors Beef Up Prevention Of Human Trafficking

President Obama issued an executive order today which will compel government contractors to assure they are not contributing to human trafficking, including sex trafficking, in the course of their work. Contractors will have to abolish trafficking-type practices like charging “recruitment fees” and being misleading about the jobs which are being filled. “We’re making clear…

How Barack And Michelle Obama Restored My Faith In Marriage

I want love to be comfortable yet scintillating and constantly evolving. Even if life’s not full of adrenaline-pumping surprises, I still crave a little adventure. And the butterflies should never die, just perhaps calm down a bit. And just when you think I’ve gotten outlandish with my demands… I want to have all of these things with…

ICYMI: President Obama’s 2012 Democratic National Convention Speech

You might have missed President Obama’s speech last night at the Democratic National Convention if you were watching the VMAs (and throwing things at the television when Rihanna and Chris Brown kissed) instead. Or maybe you were crying in the fetal position over the news that Will Arnett and Amy Poehler are dunzo. Also totally…

Gay Marriage Scaremongering Is The Most Hilarious Campaign Ad Of The 2012 Election

I thought the very intense lady who claims she “survived” an abortion, despite the fact that logic makes no sense, was the most guffaw-inducing campaign ad of the 2012 election. Wrong! It’s this anti-gay marriage scaremongering ad about how President Obama is “forcing” gay marriage on Americans, which is seemingly targeted at your racist grandma…

5 Significant Speeches From The First Night Of The Democratic National Convention

Did you watch the televised coverage of the first night of the Democratic National Convention? I did! Now, full disclosure, though I’m sure you guys already know this — I am far-left-leaning lady, and while I’m no fan of the two-party system, I’m obviously more inclined to agree with the Democratic Party’s platform. I’m a…

President Obama And The Girls Watch Michelle Obama Nail Convention Speech

The look on President Obama’s face as he and his daughters watch First Lady Michelle Obama deliver her speech (which she wrote!) at the Democratic National Convention tonight says it all: “You got this, babe.” Michelle Obama absolutely knocked it out of the park and her husband looks proud indeed. More on the DNC first thing…

Everything Barack Obama Said During Yesterday’s Reddit AMA

Ever heard of Reddit? If not, it just probably means you have a life beyond the Internet. But if you work on the Internet (like us!), or have no other hobbies besides the Internet, you’re probably on Reddit at least a couple of times a week. Reddit is a social news website where users submit…

Conservative Group Enlists Crazy-Eyes Lady For “Abortion Survival” Video

The conservative women’s group Susan B. Anthony List has debuted this not-intentionally-funny anti-Obama advertisement, which will air in Missouri, about the president’s support of reproductive rights. Did you know Barack Obama strangles newly-born babies with this own hands?! …

No, Michelle Obama Topless On A Magazine Cover Is Not “Artsy”

Plenty of absurd things are “artsy,” like crafting Jesus on the cross out of elephant feces or giving birth inside an art gallery as a live action installation. But a drawing of Michelle Obama topless on the cover of Spain’s Magazine de Fuera de Serie is plain old tasteless. In my opinion, they have every right

President Obama Jokes Again About Daughter Malia Not Being Allowed To Date

Barack Obama told “Entertainment Tonight” that Malia may not be allowed to date “until she’s 30 or 35.” Sorry, President Obama, but your jokes about not letting Malia date are a little paternalistic. And anyway, she’s 14, which is like the new 27. [Uptown Magazine]

“Rape Is Rape”: President Obama On Rep. Todd Akin’s Ludicrous Comments

“The views expressed were offensive. Rape is rape. And the idea that we should be parsing and qualifying and slicing what types of rape we are talking about doesn’t make sense to the American people and certainly doesn’t make sense to me. So what I think these comments do underscore is why we shouldn’t have…

Obama Wants To Try Bobak Ferdowsi’s Famous NASA Mohawk

“I understand there is a special mohawk guy working on the mission. I thought about getting a mohawk myself but my team keeps on discouraging me. Now that he’s received marriage proposals and thousands of Twitter followers, I’m now going to go back to my team and see if it makes sense.”

Elizabeth Banks Stands Up For Planned Parenthood

Actress Elizabeth Banks continues to be a magical unicorn from my dreams with this just-released video in support of Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign. Banks talks about why she supports Planned Parenthood — when she was a broke college graduate they helped regulate her heavy flow! — and Obama’s overall support for women’s health care.

The Obamas Talk About Their First Date

Allow me to go out on a limb and suggest that the Obamas have got to be the most in love couple ever to live in the White House. I mean, I know I wasn’t around for the vast majority of our country’s history, and there isn’t digital evidence of many prior presidents and their…

President Obama Covers “Call Me Maybe,” Sort Of

Health care reform what? Syria who? President Obama is just the latest celeb to cover that super catchy “Call Me Maybe” song. It’s cute, but it’s most redeeming quality is 100 percent less Donald Trump than the Miss USA pageant contestant cover. [MTV.Tumblr.com]…

Anna Wintour Shills For Barack Obama

It’s perhaps no surprise that the fashion world would come out in support of a more liberal presidential candidate. But what is shocking is that the normally quite demure Vogue editor Anna Wintour would deign to make a campaign video on behalf of one. But yet here is Ms. Wintour, openly praising and supporting Barack…

Morning Quickies: Michelle Obama Gets Tucked In Bed By Her Husband

Aww, this is adorable: Michelle Obama tells People magazine the president “tucks her in” each night.  “We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I’m usually in bed before anybody,” she said. “He’ll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss and we’ll talk. He’s like, ‘Ready to be
