This might be one of the cutest photos of the president ever — here with Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney, both of them giving their very best “not impressed face.” We can only imagine all the things Obama might be not impressed with after this election season …
But what is her policy on drilling in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge? Inquiring minds want to know, Mattel. [Racked]
In between running the country and ramping up re-election his campaign, President Barack Obama made a Spotify playlist. Well, okay, his campaign team did, with some of the Prez’s favorites. What’s Obama listening to these days? A smattering of Wilco, Arcade Fire, U2, James Taylor and, of course, Al Green. Among the president’s more questionable picks: former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker’s solo project, and — wait for it — Ricky Martin. “Livin’ la Vida Loca,” Barack? You can subscribe to it here.
Today President Barack Obama and FLOTUS Michelle visited with troops in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. After listening to a rousing introduction from the First Lady, President Obama noted that Michelle was both a remarkable first lady and also “cute.” Aw! He then advised the male soldiers that “Gentlemen, that’s your goal, to marry up. Punch above your weight.” [Mediaite]
I’m not going to sit here and tell you who to vote for, or attempt to suss out an official Frisky-approved political platform. But what I can tell you? Who wore it best. Sure, most politicians don’t wear the most cutting edge looks, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t assess their outfits and judge their personal style. All opinions expressed are strictly non-partisan and based purely on the cut of their jibs and the comb of their hairs. Tell us who you think has the best look in the comments.
If Donald Trump seriously runs for president (which I don’t think will happen, but still) and gets so much as one single vote in the primaries, I am moving to Canada. No ifs, ands or buts about it. The man who popularized frou-frou pompadours on men, trashy divorces, and the phrase “You’re fired!” is like a one-man encyclopedia entry for the phrase “ugly American.”
Whaddya know, a lot of celebs agree with me: Susan Sarandon, Cher, Tracy Morgan. And then there are the yokels who would actually “Vote Trump!” And there’s quite a few of them… Keep reading »
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may trade places with Vice-President Joe Biden on the 2012 election ticket, veteran journalist Bob Woodward said yesterday. “President Obama needs some of the women, Latinos, retirees that she did so well with during the 2008 primaries,” Woodward told CNN yesterday, adding that the switcheroo is “on the table.” Did Woodward pull this speculation out of his ass? Who knows. But if Hillary Clinton did run as Obama’s #2 and he was re-elected, she would become the first-ever female VP in history.
You know what? As cool as it would be to have a woman as VP, I don’t want Hillary Clinton to run. Keep reading »
Even the White House is getting into the Irish spirit. The fountain in front of the President’s house is green today!
UPDATE: This is the first year the White House fountain has been dyed green, and it was Michelle Obama’s idea. She wanted to bring a little bit of Chicago tradition (they dye the river green there on St. Paddy’s Day) to D.C. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Don’t they look spiffy? Michelle Obama is wearing Isabel Toledo. [Washington, D.C., 1/20/2009] Keep reading »
Sure, it’s Election Day, but that doesn’t mean you have to be all about the politics. You’re focused on the candidates, the issues, the outcome — but that doesn’t mean you’re not thinking about the opposite sex, too. So, here’s a few tips on how to get frisky in election-friendly ways.
CLOTHING PARTY LINES
You might not have Sarah Palin’s wardrobe budget, but you definitely need to look good enough to make someone want to stuff your ballot box. This Tuesday, make the most of the possibilities. Don’t wear headphones while waiting in those long voting lines, or show up at the polls in a crazy American flag hat. Instead, wear a flirty dress inspired by Michelle Obama. That is, if you want to go home with something other than an “I Voted!” sticker.
