Video: Not Only Was President Obama Checking Out That Girl’s Ass…

ass

…I’m also pretty sure the video shows him mouthing the word, “Damn!”  This would make the President exponentially more restrained than me, as I said, “Da-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-amn!!!”

Does it suck that the girl in the picture turns out to be 16 year-old Mayara Tavares?  Mildly.  If he had carded her first, then checked her out, I might tut a little.  Hot Air has the right attitude here:

GMA analyzed the tape as if it were a Zapruder film of bootyliciousness and concluded that the video clearly shows Obama wasn’t checking out the girl’s butt (they also don’t think he’s a socialist, so take that for what it’s worth) — however, the experienced male glancer will tell you that you always have a “plan B” in case you’re caught looking and need to make it like you were focusing on something else, so who knows.

What I find really hilarious is that Jake Tapper has been taking crap from both sides for leaving open the possibility that the President either a. Didn’t see her, or b. is, in fact, a dude.

Jake’s right, anything’s possible. Guilty or innocent, though, I’m betting Michelle gives him an elbow to the ribs at some point over this.

Michelle Obama Survives Apparent Lightsaber Attack

Michelle Obama is badass!  She doesn’t even flinch when some off-camera Sith Lord takes a swing at her.

She also handles a tiny heckler with aplomb.

I can’t wait for all the right-wing blogs to start complaining that 4th graders have a liberal bias because they ask Michelle a question like this, but they give Condi the 3rd degree.  Maybe there’s something to that.

New York Times: Ann Coulter’s Makeup Takes 40 Minutes

ann_coulter_2007_cut_image

As I was looking for info about Ann Coulter’s refusal to curse Sean Penn out in a movie, I ran across this throwaway line in a New York Times story about eminent domain.  The subject of the story, Susette Kelo, was appearing on Fox News, and Coulter happened to be in the green room.  I think this is the kind of “pull” that appeals to both sides:

They watched as another guest on the show, Ann Coulter, commanded attention — a makeup artist required a full 40 minutes to prep the glamorous basher of liberals. When it came time to apply the blush to the other woman in the room, Ms. Kelo said, “I haven’t worn makeup in 10 years.”

It made me laugh, because it was such a random swipe. The author of the story doubles back once to smack Coulter while she tries to get up:

Mr. Benedict thought of other contrasts between the two women. There was a great buzz in the building when Ms. Coulter arrived. Ms. Kelo was greeted as any ordinary citizen off the street, without heads turning. Yet Mr. Benedict wrote in his journal that night that 50 years from now the name Susette Kelo will be far better known than Ann Coulter.

Um, yeah, maybe the day after she cures cancer or something.

I am definitely no fan of Coulter’s, but I’ve thought for a long time that my liberal fellows diminish themselves greatly when they make fun of Coulter’s looks.  Let’s face it, in a gallery of political rabble-rousers, there aren’t a lot of supermodels.  If you put Coulter in a lineup with Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Al Franken, and Michael Moorann_coulter_thumbe, she fares very well.  I actually like the gritty photo she has of herself on her website.

I’ve also dismayed at the gender-based cracks about Ann.  For a group that claims to care about equality for all LGBTQ people, it seems like an odd choice.

So, to my fellow liberals, I know it seems like a tough needle to thread, but you can be the better person and still land a good metaphorical punch.

Besides, does it diminish your argument in some way if Coulter’s bod gives you a feeling up your leg?  Do you think Sean Penn didn’t get some kind of charge out of the idea of being lashed onscreen by Ann?

President Obama and French First Lady Carla Bruni Kiss and ‘Make Up’

Here’s a cross-post from AOL, and all I can say is “Damn!”  If that was me, there would be a very goodcarla_bruni3thumb reason I wouldn’t be able to step too close to her, get my drift?

Update:  I knew France had a hot First Lady, but I never really checked into it.  Did you know that there are nekkid pictures of her?  I am shocked!

President Obama and French First Lady Carla Bruni Kiss and ‘Make Up’

The silly season never ends.

Matt Drudge is pushing this headline: Bruni backs off from kiss… linking to a UK Sun article that makes it seem like French First Lady Carla Bruni had to slap away a slobbering advance from President Obama:

Bruni backs off from Obama kiss…

The former model gave customary pecks on both cheeks to Michelle Obama and other dignitaries when the couple arrived in France.

But when it came to the dashing US President the beauty kept a noticeable distance.

Well, they say pictures don’t lie, even if tabloid newspapers do. As you can see, the President and Ms. Bruni did share that continental smooch (nicely done, Mr. President), and the Sun is just trying to make some hay.

Amusingly, the New York Daily News is running the same photo as the Sun, but their headline says the President blew Bruni off. What a country!

Here’s a picture taken seconds before the one the Sun was referring to. I’ll call it “the approach”: Continue reading

Today’s Quickies PLUS! Senator Claire McCaskill

Ah, today’s “Today’s Quickies” includes a Quickie (photo op) with Senator Claire McCaskill.   She got a laugh ou0325091922t of how I took the picture, while making it seem like a candid shot.

One of these is in poor taste, as was that phrase I just used.

Chewbacca the Hooker?

Piss your pants with impunity.

The Pot disses US for missing Kettle conference.

Caleb joshes with his boyfriend.

Awww!  That’s kinda sad.  And also ACTUALLY sad.

Birfer minutiae theater.

Be nice to Moot and Rain!

The old “disappearing tit” trick!

You can download a baby?

The fat guy who used to be on SNL isn’t.

Barack Obama Not Buying Michelle Obama $30k Ring

Barack Obama Not Buying Michelle Obama $30k Ring

digg_window = ‘new’; digg_url = ‘http://news.aol.com/political-machine/2008/12/02/barack-obama-not-buying-michelle-obama-30k-ring/’;

Drudge is pushing a story from the London Daily Mail that has President-Elect Barack Obama making an epic splurge on First Lady-Elect Michelle Obama:

The Harmony ring is made of rhodium – the world’s most expensive metal –and encrusted with diamonds. It is being hastily made by Italian designer Giovanni Bosco in time for January’s inauguration ceremony.

Only about 25 tons of rhodium are mined each year, mostly in South Africa, and as a result its price is typically around £5,000 an ounce.

There’s just one problem: The story isn’t true.

The Obama Press Office told me this:

The story is not true, there is no $30,000.00 ring.

I also contacted the jeweler in the story, Bosco Giovanni. Here’s what their spokesman, Enrico Gamba, said via email:

I regret to inform you that because of reports so wrong and clearly different from the reality of our statements, we decided to not issue statement on this matter.

Unfortunately, we were negatively affected by read on national and foreign media news stories that have no basement[sic], and in excess of the objective reality.

I inform you that we have no intention to disseminate more information about this story.

Much like the tale of Michelle Obama’s Caligula-style snack at the Waldorf-Astoria, this is another attempt to paint the Obamas as elitist and out of touch that has proven false.

Even so, if the story had been true, I would have to say that Obama was getting off cheap, considering his epic failure to remember how long the couple has been married. Barack, if you’re reading this, I can totally put you in touch with that jeweler. I recommend you get the matching earrings.
