Barack Obama Glad Michelle Still Finds Him Cute At 50

“What I really want right now is to get a debt-ceiling deal for my birthday … I feel real good about 5-0. I’ve got a little greyer since I took this job, but otherwise, I feel pretty good. Michelle still thinks I’m cute. And I guess that’s, that’s all that matters, isn’t?”

Barack Obama talks to NPR about his 50th birthday, which is coming up on Thursday. We’re with Michelle on this one—we think the grey just makes you look more distinguished, Barack. And we guess it’s up to Congress whether he’ll get the birthday present of his choice. [Telegraph UK] Keep reading »

Who Is Calling Michelle Obama Fat?

Michelle Obama? Fat? The woman whose toned upper-arms have headlined the 10 o’clock news? Who would dare say such a thing? In a cartoon on a conservative web site called BigGovernment.com, the First Lady and the president are depicted chowing down on dinner — she with a pile of hamburgers and French fries and he with a few lettuce leaves. The joke here, I guess, is that she’s a hypocrite because she actually eats junk food sometimes? I don’t get the joke. What’s offensive about the cartoon, though, is how Michelle Obama is drawn with pudgy jowls, and bulging arms, and snaps at Barack, “Shut up and pass the bacon!” According to the media watchdog group Media Matters For America, a previous version of the cartoon that appeared online had Michelle saying, “Shut up and pass the lard!” Keep reading »

Rush Limbaugh Suggests The TSA Grope The Obama Daughters

Another week, another inappropriate Rush Limbaugh comment. Yesterday on his radio show, the conservative talk show host was discussing the hot topic of the day: TSA airport pat-downs. “Do you know when Obama went swimming with his daughter to show it was safe, during the oil spill?” He asked. “How about taking his daughter through [an airport] screening? How about Obama take [sic] his daughter to the airport and have a TSA grope her (emphasis mine), go through the exact routine with Obama’s daughter that everybody’s else’s daughter goes through, just to show it’s safe for everybody. Like he did in the Gulf with the oil spill.” Ew!

Oh, but it gets worse: Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, also weighed in on “Fox News” with creepy comments about pat-downs on the bodies of the women in the First Family… Keep reading »

Watch Out Vera Wang, Here Comes Jason Wu

Looks like Jason Wu is giving Vera Wang a run for her money. The Michelle Obama-preferred designer is entering the bridal market with a line of wedding dresses for Net-A-Porter. Says Wu: “The capsule collection includes wonderful options for a bride, but also has a relaxed attitude with pieces that can be worn to other occasions.” We’re loving the sketches, which look fun and young while staying classic. As for price, the dresses will retail from $795 to $4,000. Which, as far as wedding gowns go, isn’t exorbitant. [Fashion Foie Gras] Keep reading »
