Do Michelle Obama and Madonna Belong on a List of the 25 ‘Least Influential’ People?

GQ just released their list of various politicians, sports figures, musicians and Hollywood figures who they consider to be the least influential, and there are more than a few inclusions that just don’t sit right.

Amanda Bynes and Gotye: yes, Michelle Obama, hell no.

Forget that she’s the first lady, Mrs. O is actually somebody worth idolizing.

Seeing that her entry (number seven) is accompanied by a picture of her snarfing down Haagen Daz straight out of the container in a bath robe, it’s clear that the compiler of this list merely dislikes her vendetta against fast food.  Continue reading “Do Michelle Obama and Madonna Belong on a List of the 25 ‘Least Influential’ People?”

Marijuana Legalized In Colorado and Washington, Marriage Equality For Maine and Maryland!

Today was a good day for Democrats. Colorado, Washington, Maine and Maryland made history for their yes votes on marriage equality measures and marijuana legalization, oh, and that Obama guy won.

In spite of Colorado and Washington’s recreational marijuana use laws (Initiative 502 and Amendment 64) passing, the states still have a way to go in terms of actual results, so don’t take your pipe on a walk just yet.

Huffington Post and other websites report that it could take months, possibly even a year, for 21-and-overs to legally buy pot.

Here’s a statement from CO governor John Hickenlooper:  Continue reading “Marijuana Legalized In Colorado and Washington, Marriage Equality For Maine and Maryland!”

I Respect Ann Coulter’s ‘Retard’ Comments Because…

After the debates last night, famous conservative controversy-lover Ann “long hands” Coulter wrote, “I highly approve of Romney’s decision to be kind and gentle to the retard.”

Yes Ann Coulter called Obama a retard, yes a boatload of angry liberals on Twitter attacked her ignorance, specifically her use of the “r-word,” yes I support her right to say it. You know why?

…Because there are thousands of democrats calling her and Mitt Romney retards at this exact moment. Also, it’s not like Coulter’s statements were ever subtle.

She is, after all, the one who called Princess Diana a “nitwit hussy” and said America would be better if women couldn’t vote though I think she meant “the country would be better if Ann Coulter couldn’t vote.”  Continue reading “I Respect Ann Coulter’s ‘Retard’ Comments Because…”

Obama Calls Out Mitt’s Backtracking, Labels It ‘Romnesia’

At a speech in Virginia at George Mason University yesterday afternoon Obama addressed his running opponent Mitt Romney‘s “backtracking” and “sidestepping” ways, humorously labeling the condition “Romnesia.”

Here are the symptoms, so nobody else catches it:

If you say you’re for equal pay for equal work, but you keep refusing to say whether or not you’d sign a bill that protects equal pay for equal work – you might have Romnesia.

If you say women should have access to contraceptive care, but you support legislation that would let your employer deny you contraceptive care – you might have a case of Romnesia.  Continue reading “Obama Calls Out Mitt’s Backtracking, Labels It ‘Romnesia’”

Tumblr Has A Binder Full Of Jokes About Mitt Romney

A Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter account have already been dedicated to Mitt Romney’s comments during Tuesday night’s debates. Speaking about his difficulties finding qualified female candidates to work for him in Massachusetts, he said:

“I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks,’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”

Mitt Romney Discusses Important Issues At The Debates, Like Big Bird

The presidential debates kicked off yesterday night and a surprising amount of Democrats (and Republicans of course) agreed that Obama appeared sleepy and disconnected. In the words of Roger Ebert, “Romney won on style and performance, Obama won on facts.”

Romney is quite the misguided charmer. During the most viral/meme friendly moment, he said:

“I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS, I’m going to stop other things. I like PBS, I love Big Bird. Actually, [I] like you, too. But I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for.”  Continue reading “Mitt Romney Discusses Important Issues At The Debates, Like Big Bird”

12-Year-Old Rips Mitt Romney A New Hole

A Denver 7th grader’s disapproving letter to Mitt Romney discussing gay marriage, women’s rights, religion, and health care is a viral sensation.

Like McKayla Maroney, he is NOT IMPRESSED.

Despite a few grammatical errors (“backpedalled” instead of “backpedaled” and “you’re” instead of “your”), it’s hard to not wonder if Jackson Ripley had some help from his parents. (Or I’m jealous because my comprehension was not nearly this good at age 12.)

What pre-teen refers to the “middle class” and uses words “vulnerable?”

Here’s the entire body of the letter from Jackson Ripley, regarding his younger sister Kennedy’s battle with hemangioma…  Continue reading “12-Year-Old Rips Mitt Romney A New Hole”

Clint, I Love You, But WTF Are You Talking About?

Clint Eastwood, who announced his support for Mitt Romney August 3, opened for the presidential candidate at the Republican National Convention on Thursday with a rant less easy to understand than stroked-out Gary Busey.

I THINK he was trying to say that Romney will help the economy, and even though Obama’s enthusiasm in 2004 made him cry (“I
haven’t cried that hard since I found out that there are 23 million unemployed people in this country”), he’s sick of the broken promises.

Being the biggest female Clint Eastwood fan in the entire world, I can only hope that he was stumbling over his words (and talking to inanimate objects BESIDES Paul Ryan) to appeal to his audience.  Continue reading “Clint, I Love You, But WTF Are You Talking About?”

Rush Limbaugh Musings: ‘The Dark Knight Lights Up’ Is One Of Dem Conspiracy Thingys!

Rush Limbaugh offered up his opinion on The Dark Knight Rises during his thought-provoking radio show Tuesday morning.

Apparently the movie, which he refers to as “The Dark Knight Lights Up,” is an intricate conspiracy to make Mitt Romney look bad worse.

“Have you heard this new movie, the Batman movie, what is it, The Dark Knight Lights Up or whatever the name is. That’s right, Dark Knight Rises. Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e.”

What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain.”  Continue reading “Rush Limbaugh Musings: ‘The Dark Knight Lights Up’ Is One Of Dem Conspiracy Thingys!”

Romney Campaign Calls Obama A Hawaiian Stoner, Makes Him Sound Cool As F**k

Mitt Romney stand-in John Sununu insulted Obama’s senatorial state of Illinois and called him an Un-American “scoundrel” on Fox News. The fun doesn’t stop there. Sununu also said that “He has no idea how the American system functions. And we shouldn’t be surprised about that because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something…and another set of years in Indonesia.”

The thing is, he just made Barack sound cooler to the naive Democratic 15 to 40-something demographic. While Sununu surely made a few Romney supporters nod their heads in approval, the effect this has on liberals outweighs that.
