Hula Hoopin! What a first lady!

1-u-s-first-lady-michelle-obama-hula-hoops-at-healthy-kids-fair-on-south-lawn-of-the-white-house-in-washington We know she’s got rythmn but we now we know that she sure has the moves…at least when it comes to hula hooping. Michelle Obama managed to 142 turns before the hula hoop fell. Now that is impressive!

The hula hooping was all part of the Healthy Kids Fair held at the White House South Lawn. The first lady also jumped rope and finished an obstacle course.

Obama Thinks Kanye Is A J****ss

Who doesn’t? Anyway, President Obama was being interviewed by CNBC’s John Harwood and during the pre-interview chatter (which is off the record), the talk inevitably turned to Kanye West’s stunt at the VMAs. When asked why he think Kanye did it, the President’s reply was a quick “He’s a jackass.”

The President quickly appealed to the reporters present to keep it off the record, as of course, people might get the wrong idea – he is president after all, and presidents are not really supposed to go around calling people names. Of course, you know how there is nothing secret in this town…some employees of the network overheard the remark through and immediately tweeted about it.

I say, let the President be – he is entitled to such remarks, too. PLUS he was not entirely wrong, was he?


Oprah Dissed By Rev. Wright

Oprah seems to be a favorite for celebrity critics these days. First it was Chris Brow, now it’s Rev. Wright. Remember President Obama’s ex-pastor was interviewed by TMZ and he said that Oprah is merely an entertainer and that she cannot really help people because she doesn’t know anything about social policy. What’s with these people?


Senator Edward Kennedy Passes Away

Senator Edward Kennedy passed away on Tuesday in his home. He was the last brother in the legendary Kennedy dynasty. He was much revered and respected all throughout the nation. President Obama said that he was one of the greatest US senators of all time. May he rest in peace.


It’s probably not what you’re thinking. McAfee Inc., known for its virus scanner, conducted a survey about celebrities which will most likely get you malware over the Internet if you do a search on them. At the top of the list, we have Jessica Biel, who is followed closely by Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Brady and Jessica Simpson. You can safely search for the First Couple, though.


Ok gals, who is the hottest couple in America today? conducted a survey to find out and guess what, Brangelina came out on top, with the Obamas running a close second. The First Couple can certainly give Brangelina a run for their money, don’t you think? Do you agree with the poll?


Seriously, what was he expecting? You call your African-American president racist on national TV and you are unlikely to be praised for that. Glenn Beck spoke his mind late in July and his remark seems to be backfiring. Sponsors are pulling out and ads for his show are being canceled as well. How’s he gonna pull this one off?

Obamas Go Country

Obama Slammed By Palin

Natl Governors Assn Leaders Brief Press After Meeting With Obama

Not about his political moves or policies, but because of a joke he made while he was on Jay Leno’s show. Obama mentioned something about the Special Olympics and how his bowling scores were just about the same as those in the event. Palin took offense, having a child with Down’s syndrome. Understandable.
