Former child star Amanda Bynes’ insane antics continue and there seems to be no end in sight. For her latest bit of crazy, Amanda took to Twitter once again to rant about how she thinks President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are “ugly” and to rave about her rapid weight loss.
“Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are ugly!” Amanda Bynes Twitter account proclaimed on Monday morning, adding to the list of celebrities the former All That star has claimed are “ugly.” She’s also labelled Rihanna, Drake, Zac Efron, Courtney Love and others with what has apparently become her favorite Twitter insult.
Pope Benedict XVI to resign due to age and lack of energy, video below. Recognizing what he described as his failing strength of “mind and body,” Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday that he would step down as head of the Catholic church, the first pontiff to give up his duties since 1415.
“After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry,” Benedict said in a statement. Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican press office, said Benedict will move to the papal residence in Castel Gandolfo following his abdication on Feb. 28, then return to Rome to live in a monastery of cloistered nuns inside the Vatican for a period of prayer and reflection.

Animal rights organization PETA is in some trouble with the White House for using an image of First Lady Michelle Obama in one of their advertisements without her approval. The ‘Fur-Free and Fabulous!’ ad features Michelle Obama alongside Oprah Winfrey, Carrie Underwood and Tyra Banks. All of the women have publicly shunned the wearing of fur, but it seems the organization didn’t bother to ask if the ladies wanted to be spokesmodels for the PETA cause.
The White House released a statement saying that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has no authority or right to use the image of Michelle Obama in any of their advertisements. Obama’s press secretary did confirm the First Lady “does not wear fur” but said she did not consent to have her image used in PETA’s anti-fur campaign.
In a response statement, PETA said the organization has not “asked the White House to fund or promote the campaign, as they can’t do such things. However, the organization claims no wrongdoing in using the First Lady’s image to promote their cause. “The fact is that Michelle Obama has issued a statement indicating that she doesn’t wear fur, and the world should know that in PETA’s eyes, that makes her pretty fabulous.”
We think PETA is pretty fabulously ballsy for using Michelle Obama’s image to promote their campaign without her permission. And even worse, they put her behind Oprah Winfrey in the ad! Isn’t that kind of like saying Oprah is cooler than President Barack Obama‘s wife? We’re not touching that one.
Rarely is Snarkista speechless, but today she’s pretty damn close. Behold Michelle Obama in London, one of the fashion capitols of the world. Unfortunately, Miss Thang appears to have run through the notions department at Fabrics-R-Us following a vicious glue-gun fight.
“But,” you may say, “perhaps she was visiting Piccadilly Circus, and was tripped up by the ‘circus’ part?” No… sadly, this was Michelle’s pick to visit Westminster Abbey. Nothing says “reverence” like an homage to Bozo.
Speculation is keen today that Michelle Obama is pregnant. Rush Limbaugh speculated on the topic this morning on his show…and wondered if Michelle may make an announcement during her speech tonight at the Democrats’ National Convention. The pic on the left shows Michelle in March, the pic on the right is from yesterday. She’s definitely put on some pounds.
Snarkista wonders if Michelle would really make such a spectacle of her speech, even if she IS pregnant. Still, if you subscribe to the “all press is good press” school of thought, it certainly would be front-page news. She definitely needs to make people forget some of her controversial remarks of the past, and a preggers announcement would certainly divert some attention! She WILL be making the case for “her man” tonight, and if her man’s been gettin busy, it would probably reinforce his family-man image. It would also highlight the fact that John and Cindy McCain are too old to be makin’ babies. One thing’s for sure, she won’t be talking about Obama’s birth certificate. Stay tuned…
The upcoming issue of the New Yorker, the July 21st issue, has a picture of Barack Obama, depicting him and wife Michelle on the cover. It shows Michelle with an Afro and an AK 47. and the two of them doing the fist bump. Barack is looking quite Middle Eastern, and is sporting some kind of turban-type thing on his head! Osama Bin Laden’s over the mantle, and the American flag is burning in the fireplace.
Politico reports that Barack, when told of the upcoming issue said:
â€œI have no response to that.â€
But Michelle’s stylists will!
The magazine explains at the start of its news release previewing the issue: â€œOn the cover of the July 21, 2008, issue of the The New Yorker, in â€˜The Politics of Fear,â€™ artist Barry Blitt satirizes the use of scare tactics and misinformation in the Presidential election to derail Barack Obamaâ€™s campaign.â€
Iâ€™m sure Senator Obama is THRILLED for The New Yorkerâ€™s help! Snarkista imagines the satiric New Yorker will be great fodder for fearmongers who will take it quite seriously. The Obama girls, however will be PISSED and are probably shooting a response video right now. Don’t cross those Obama girls, ‘cuz they will cut a bitch. With LIPGLOSS.
