A photo from Barack and Michelle Obama’s wedding (they look exhausted…like they were doing the Electric Slide)

John And Cindy McCain’s wedding photo is shown above. She was 24 and he was 41. He just looks happy not to be in Vietnam (he was a P.O.W.).


Obama Osama Caricature Sparks Outrage

July 30, 2008 Comments off

A cover photo of the New Yorker features Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama dressed as Osama Bin Laden and his wife clad as a militant, afro wearing, gun slinger in fatigues. The American flag burns in the fire place and Osama Bin Laden hangs on the wall.

The magazine stated the piece was done in the vein of satire, but many didn’t find it funny. I don’t like it, as it draws on stereotypes.

‘Scare tactic’ — Obama slams Muslim portrayal

The Obama campaign is condemning as “tasteless and offensive” a New Yorker magazine cover that depicts Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in a turban, fist-bumping his gun-slinging wife.

An American flag burns in their fireplace. The New Yorker says it’s satire. It certainly will be candy for cable news.

The youth vote could make or break the 2008 U.S. presidential election, depending on turn out at the polls in November. A new article explores how young voters view the candidates’ wives and in turn them as politicians.

Young voters split on Michelle Obama, don’t know Cindy McCain

WASHINGTON–Barack Obama may have a handle on the younger demographic, but apparently his wife still has some work to do.

According to an AP-Yahoo News opinion poll released this week, 34 percent of young adults ages 18 to 34 have an unfavorable impression of Michelle Obama. This compares with 27 percent of young people who view her favorably and 39 percent who said they aren’t informed enough about her to comment either way.

Just 18 percent of young people polled view Cindy McCain unfavorably, a slightly lower figure than the 22 percent who said they have a positive impression of her. But Cindy McCain remains more of a mystery to most young voters—59 percent of 18-to-34-year-olds said they don’t know enough about her to form an impression.

Why is Michelle Obama so polarizing, and why is Cindy McCain so unfamiliar?

Hillary Clinton Playing Nice With Obama

Hillary Cleans Up Her Web Site

After months of bitter fighting, name calling and racist remarks, still a senator (smirk) Hillary Clinton, is being nice to Barack Obama.

She has removed all negative attacks from her web site on the now Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. Can’t say the same for her supporters though, who continue to assail Obama online.

Clinton attacks against Obama vanish on Web

Wednesday, July 2, 2008 – Presumptive Democratic Presidential Nominee Sen. Barack Obama, D-IL, and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY, embrace as they campaign together for the first time since Clinton dropped out of the race in Unity, New Hampshire, on June 27, 2008.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has scrubbed all negative ads from her campaign Web site and YouTube page, leaving visitors with only the warm and fuzzy moments from her bid for the presidency.

Bill Clinton Finally Endorses Obama

July 12, 2008 Comments off

Took You Long Enough

Bill Clinton to family: brace yourselves, we may have to vote for this guy.
Little girl: I can’t vote anyway.

The Clintons have finally come around to the Democratic Party’s wishes kicking and screaming and endorsed Barack Obama for president. Bill has endorsed Obama and Hillary has vowed to campaign with him this week.

Instructions for Hillary Clinton while campaigning on the same stage as Obama:

1. you are not to choke the Obama.

2. you are not to put the Obama in a headlock of any kind.

3. you are not to kick the Obama.

4. you are not to call the Obama, “The dream squasher that took the nomination from me.”

5. you are not to scream out at the podium at anytime “It should have been me.”

6. you are not to yell at Michelle Obama for helping her husband beat you in the race, nor are you to call her the “Claire Huxtable reboot that stole my dream.”

Cindy McCain To The Press: I’m Off Limits

Cindy McCain

Wife of Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, stated today that she believes the wives and families of candidates should be off limits. Yea, like that’s gonna happen.

The Obamas

Considering whoever wins the race for the White House, will be residents at said casa and represent the nation to the world, you can be sure each person in said family will be thoroughly investigated and written about by the press. That’s just how it’s always worked.

John McCain and his mommy

You asking the press to back off is like asking Bill Clinton not to go to Hooters. That’s just testing willpower to the max.

George Bush kissing Cindy McCain as John McCain makes faces (LOL)

Cindy McCain: Families of candidates not fair game

(CNN) — Cindy McCain, wife of Sen. John McCain, said Thursday that the spouses of the presidential candidates should be allowed to have some privacy.

“I do not think that spouses and family members … are fair game,” she told CNN’s John King. “There has to be some decorum left in politics and in American journalism as well. Our husbands are the candidates,” she said.

Cindy McCain Slams Michelle Obama

And Michelle Obama Gets A Makeover

Michelle Obama

Michelle, wife of Democratic nominee Barack Obama, has gotten “a subtle makeover” according to several press outlets. She has been wearing softer, less corporate looks and new make up as well. Still, they act like she was wearing man-suits like Hillary and rocking an afro mullet (whereas Hillary has a straight up mullet).


Michelle Obama

As I wrote last month, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. McCain wore several flattering looks while out campaigning. There was nothing wrong with their attire. Now that the pleasant stuff is out of the way…

Cindy McCain

Cindy McCain, wife of Republican nominee, John McCain, slammed Michelle Obama today over comments she made a few months ago about America. Michelle previously stated that during her husband’s campaign was, “The first time I felt proud of my country.”

“I don’t know why she said what she said,” Mrs. McCain explains in an interview with ABC News’ Kate Snow airing on “Good Morning America” Thursday. “Everyone has their own experience. I don’t know why she said what she said, all I know is that I have always been proud of my country.”

Um, isn’t Michelle from Chicago. Oh, I’m having a vision. I see a black woman taking off her earrings and chasing down a blonde woman that made a comment on ABC. I see ABC’s Kate Snow backing up and saying, “This has nothing to do with me.”

(I’m just kidding).
