John McCain Wants President Obama To Pardon Boxer Jack Johnson

Back in the early 1900s, boxer Jack Johnson was charged with violating the Mann Act, which forbid “transporting women across state lines for immoral purposes.” This act was intended to put an end to prostitution and an amended version is actually still in place. In 1913, Jackson was the first to be prosecuted under the act, and he was convicted by an all-white jury and sentenced to a year and a day in prison. After fleeing the country and living abroad for seven years, Johnson returned to the United States and served his sentence. Keep reading »

Vanity Fair Says McCain Aides Disliked Sarah Palin As Much As (Some Of Us) Did

Vanity Fair doesn’t tell us anything that Palin-watchers (er, Palin-stomachers) didn’t already know.

The Many Feuds Of David Letterman

As you know, David Letterman’s been getting a lot of flack for opening up his trap about Sarah Palin and her family. He won’t shut up about it. She won’t shut up about it. And obviously we can’t shut up about it. So after the jump, I’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane to reminisce about some older Letterman feuds that people also couldn’t shut up about.

Twitter Tirades: First Tweets!

Twitter is enjoying lots of virgin experiences lately. Twittering jurors caused a mistrial, members of Congress twitted away during Obama’s state of the union address, and last week we saw the first tweet from space. Here are a few more getting their Twitter-cherry popped. Keep reading »

John McCain Disses Sarah Palin On “The Tonight Show”

John McCain went on “The Tonight Show” last night and spoke about the future of the Republican party and who’s leading the GOP. He mentioned several governors, and, apparently, he doesn’t consider former running mate Sarah Palin to be one of the “young, dynamic governors” in their party, because he intentionally didn’t mention her. Diss! [The Daily Beast via AOL News] Keep reading »

Who Should Meghan McCain Date?

Poor Meghan McCain. It’s hard dating when you’re the daughter of a former Presidential candidate. Especially when he lost. But I’m not just emoting here — Meghan has expressed these sentiments in a new blog post over at The Daily Beast. In her column, “Looking For Mr. Far Right,” she writes that dating for her is a Catch-22 because she finds that she’s not only not attracted to Obama supporters (for obvious reasons), but hardcore supporters of her father too. After all, how’s she to know that the guy is into her for her and not because her dad is a failed presidential candidate? Keep reading »

Breaking News! Is Cindy McCain Cheating On Her Maverick?!

The National Enquirer, which famously broke the John Edwards cheating scandal, claims that Cindy McCain has been cheating on John McCain. The magazine says that Cindy has been canoodling with a “washed-up 80s rock star” — the picture they’ve produced as evidence looks pretty darn grainy to us, but the woman in the photo does have Cindy’s signature platinum hair. But without getting a look at her eye makeup, I’m not willing to say if it’s her or not. The McCain spokespeople have declined to comment. In any case, if it is true, maybe she’s decided to run around John before he runs around on her — after all, their relationship started with HER as the other woman. But still…kind of mean to kick a man while he’s down! [National Enquirer] Keep reading »

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 »
