Potato-faced nincompoop Mike Huckabee has advice for practically everyone, and is more than willing to dish it out as he goes around promoting his new book, which is seriously titled God, Guns, Grits and Gravy. An appropriately classy and dignified title for a book by a man who wishes to be President of these United States, no?
In his book, Huckabee offers up all sorts of wisdom about things. Things like how if we allow gay marriage to be legal, bisexual people will want to have two spouses, because that is obviously how being bisexual works. According to Mike Huckabee. He also goes on and on, apparently, about how he thinks Beyoncé and Jay-Z are the actual worst ever, and definitely poor role models for the children of this country. Keep reading »
Selfies with the president are so 2009. A girl named Sarah scored herself a photo with 16-year-old Malia, even though the First Daughter was apparently telling other people at Lollapalooza in Chicago that she is not allowed to take pics. The Obamas are notoriously strict parents, so props to them for being cool about letting Malia go to a music festival. Well, with her bodyguards. [Huffington Post]
Here’s the Obama family posing on Sunday evening with five adorable little kids who are past or current patients at the Children’s National Medical Center. Gosh, whoever thought to put these kids in elf costumes deserves a raise. [NBC News] [Photo: Getty Images]
Thanksgiving does not officially begin until the national news media gathers outside the White House for the pomp-and-circumstance of the president not murdering a poor, defenseless bird. This year’s lucky turkey is Popcorn from Badger, Minnesota, who, loves to eat corn and dances to Beyoncé’s “Halo,” according to the White House blog. Even less enthusiastic about being there than the media standing out the the cold were Sasha and Malia Obama. They have the look all over their faces that they are getting too old for this shit.

I love this photo mostly because of the absolute stars in Malia Obama’s eyes as she gazes at Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl targeted by the Taliban for her activism on behalf of girls’ education. So what did Malala and the President talk about? In a statement, the teen said:
“I thanked President Obama for the United States’ work in supporting education in Pakistan and Afghanistan and for Syrian refugees. I also expressed my concerns that drone attacks are fueling terrorism. Innocent victims are killed in these acts, and they lead to resentment among the Pakistani people. If we refocus efforts on education it will make a big impact.”
Such a brave, wise soul in so many ways. Be sure to pick up her memoir, I Am Malala, when it comes out this Tuesday. [The Washington Post] [Photo: Getty Images]
