John Chu, ACDC member (not the band, grampaw!) who brought us Miley Cyrus and Mandy Jiroux’s WAY popular Youtube danceoffs, has created a new way to solve the world’s problems. Dance ’em away! Seriously, John’s created a fun new site that’s become wildly popular…people send in their dance videos where they are dancing for their candidate of choice! The Palinistas are here too! The winner of the danceoff will be announced on Election Day, November 4th. To submit a video, visit ibeatyou.com. Don’t forget to vote, unless you’re uninformed. If you are, good news! You can stay home! Party time!!
Kumbayah! At least for one night, the two presidential rivals joined together for a good cause, the 63rd annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. The event, named for the famed 1920’s governor of New York, was a sold-out soiree. It surpassed its goal of raising $2.5 million for Catholic causes and their wonderful work with the poor and needy. The dinner is an election year tradition for candidates, and gives them a chance to show their comedic chops. Both guys were pretty dang hilarious! They roasted each other and themselves, the media, other politicians…and didn’t spare the Clintons. Both guys were QUITE gracious and warm as well, and it was SO good to see the gloves come off, and the white ties put on.
This was likely the last time John McCain and Barack Obama will be in the same room before the election, and they genuinely seemed to be glad to be together. Don’t want to spoil the fun with any recaps, so…enjoy!
Well, the candidates really went after each other last night in the final debate before the presidential election November 4th. People on BOTH sides are pretty riled up…so Snarkista thought she’d give you a little bit of funny: The Batman vs. Penguin Debate! Penguin is quite the politician! Besides, we ALL know who really won last night’s debate…Joe The Plumber.
Yep, I said it. (Sorry if you choked on your morning coffee.) Too many of my fellow media purveyors won’t (or can’t) go there. I hate the “C” word with a passion. Apparently, however, Sarah Palin’s protesters love it. Here are the pictures from the Philadelphia protest the other day against Palin that the mainstream media won’t fully show you, and I’m NOT blacking anything out. I SERIOUSLY doubt if Hillary Clinton had been a nominee that you’d be seeing any crap like this. This shizz has got to stop.
McCain has repeatedly had the guts NOT to take the bait from some of his angry supporters when he could have gotten down in the dirt about Obama. Instead, he called him a decent, family man, with whom he differs. He defended Obama against some of the questioners in his audiences.
Obama, however, has not denounced any of THESE stunts, which are sadly quite common. Aren’t we better than this? All I’ve seen from McCain rallies are people in goofy hats, or dressed in every variation of an American flag, or wearing a shirt picturing a pig wearing lipstick.
Yes, people are angry on both sides of this extremely important decision. But if a McCain supporter is going to be called a racist for his or her vote, that doesn’t help our country. If an Obama supporter is going to be classified as a friend of terrorists, that doesn’t help our country. If we don’t get it together pretty damn fast, we are going to have serious problems AS a country after the election. Our country has enough on it’s freaking plate as it is. We have to live together after this is over. Grow up, people.
Sarah Palin’s future son-in-law Levi Johnston told the AP today that he’s NOT being forced into a shotgun marriage with her daughter Bristol. Levi says he’s loved Bristol for a long time, and that they’ve dated since his freshman year in high school.
“None of that’s true. We both love each other. We both want to marry each other. And that’s what we are going to do. We were planning on getting married a long time ago with or without the kid. That was the plan from the start.”
Levi and Bristol are planning to get married this summer, and their baby is due December 18th. Levi hints that the baby’s a boy, and that he is looking forward to teaching him how to hunt and fish. Levi says “he’ll be everywhere with me.” Levi also says that his infamous Myspace page, which said he was a “redneck who didn’t want kids”, was a joke created by his friends a few years ago.
The 18-year-old hottie has dropped out of high school to take a job on Alaska’s North Slope oil fields as an apprentice electrician. “It’s going to be a lot of hard work, but we can handle it. We’re up for it. I’m excited to have my first kid!” Snark Food says good for Levi and Bristol for not taking the easy way out. We wish them ALL the best!
Levi says he doesn’t know much about Barack Obama, but that he “seems like a nice guy.” He’s rooting hard for Sarah Palin and John McCain, of course. “I just hope she wins,” he told the AP. “She’s my future mother-in-law. She better win.”
