This is one of those moments where technology was used in the most appropriate way possible. Earlier this week, Jay-Z and Beyonce hosted an Obama reelection fundraiser at the 40/40 Club. Beyonce said lots of nice things about the POTUS, people drank lots of top shelf champagne and wrote fatty checks and someone snapped a picture of this moment, which was forever immortalized on Obama’s Twitter feed with the caption: “A couple of supporters in a New York state of mind last night.” I want to know what they’re talking about. Looks like the best convo ever. Not fair. But seriously, Bey and Jay need to stop taking dream life snapshots. I’m getting jealz. [WOW]
Yesterday, in Colorado, President Obama allegedly got “attacked” by some frozen yogurt. “A woman got very excited and spilled yogurt on me,” he said of the incident. God, I hate when that happens. I’m a frozen yogurt addict, so it happens to me a lot. Even when I’m not excited. Anyhow, the girl accused of “yogurting” the President is speaking out. University of Colorado student Kolbi Zerbest was falsely accused. According to an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” she did not spill yogurt on Obama’s pant leg. What really happened: The Secret Service made her put her parfait (not fro-yo) on the ground, and it was a photog who kicked it at Obama. That’s right, Kolbi, blame it on the paps. At least she takes full responsibility for eating the yogurt.[Business Insider]

Foreign victims of domestic violence may finally be able to escape their abuse; the Obama administration has instated a new policy that may grant some of these victims asylum in the United States. The policy would reverse a Bush administration stance that did not allow foreign abuse victims entry into the U.S. Keep reading »
There are certain places I expect the President of the U.S. to pop up: CNN, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, etc. Since President Obama is unusually stylish, it’s no surprise that he and the super glam Michelle regularly grace the cover of non-news magazines. The one place I was not expecting to see the handsome face of our fearless leader: a dildo. Oh yes, he’s really got his own stimulus package. Personally, I’ll pass. Luckily for those of us who find that politics rarely leads to fun in the bedroom, but want to show their patriotism in an unusual manner, there is plenty of oddball Obama merchandise out there.

Have you heard the news? The Obamas got a dog, and they’re naming him Bo! There were some conflicting reports about Bo over the weekend (is he, in fact, from a shelter?), so we thought thought we’d straighten out things regarding the new First Dog.
Bo is a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog (also known as a Portie).
Ever since President Obama made his campaign promise to daughters Malia and Sasha, the media hasn’t stopped talking about Malia’s allergies and how their dog must be hypoallergenic. Bo will not make her sneeze.
Sadly, Bo isn’t a shelter dog. Michelle had been fairly adamant that their puppy would most be a rescue dog, but Bo came from a breeder. He is a bit of a reject, however, because he was purchased by someone else and then returned to the breeder after Bo (then known as Charlie) annoyed his owner’s older Portie.

Walgreens stores in Chicago and Tampa have removed the Chia Obama from their shelves because they’ve deemed it “objectionable.” “Since when is an Afro racist?” asked Joseph Pedott, founder of Joseph Enterprises, which manufactures Chia Pets. “Owners can trim Chia Obama’s ‘hair’ to any length they want,” he added. I personally don’t see what’s so offensive. Joseph Enterprises, which doesn’t have any plans to halt production, is just trying to capitalize on Obama hysteria like so many other entrepreneurs. Seriously, Walgreens? The Chia Obama is basically a Chia Head, so where else did you expect the plant to grow from? His nostrils? Get over it. I plan to buy one just as soon as I decide between the determined pose and the happy pose. [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »
