Barack Obama: May 2008 Archives
New ad by the Tennessee Republican Party targets Michelle Obama. The ad takes a 5 second clip from one of Obama's speeches and plays it over and over again to critically characterize who she is and what she stands for.
Is this okay? Do you think Michelle Obama fair game? Let us know in the comments.
By the way, we haven't seen a potential first lady attacked like this in an ad before (absent a simultaneous attack on her husband). If you know of such an ad, give us the heads up in the comments, k?
Emily's List, a PAC that helps pro-choice women get elected to public office, is none too pleased that the NARAL Pro-Choice America PAC has endorsed Barack Obama for president. Ellen Malcolm, Emily's List founder and Clinton BFF, says the endorsement is "tremendously disrespectful" to her girl. NARAL is like, "Whatev! Endorsing a Clinton is so '96!" NARAL will host a web chat about their endorsement on this Friday, May 16th. Submit your questions here.
to let us know that John Edwards just endorsed him for real like a minute ago. Obviously, we're among the first Barry told, because we have it like that. You can have it like that too, if you text HOPE to 62262 or sign up over here (and get you a new ring tone while you're at it).
Tell Bar we said 'sup.
In this mother's day video, little kids ask their moms not for a puppy or a Nintendo, but to please vote for Barack Obama. Clearly, Obama has been handing out candy bribes.
Michelle and Barack Obama (mostly Michelle) were on Rachael Ray about a week ago. Rachael tried to play it impartial, but her sparkly eyes and beaming smile totally gave her away as an Obama supporter. She just ate the Obamas up!
Michelle and Barack have date night once a week.
Rachael implied that she loves her dog Isaboo more than the Obamas love their kids. You know the Obamas talked about that later. (But in Rach's defense, she was clearly star struck and these things just happen when you're star struck.)
The Obamas first dance was was to "Unforgettable" (presumably the Nat King Cole version, but if not, they're not as cool as we thought).
Michelle walked down the aisle to a Stevie Wonder song at their wedding.
Michelle said she watches what the kids eat. (Ugh! That probably means no sugar cereals. As in no Lucky Charms and no Cocoa Puffs. And worse, no prizes in the box!)
At the end of the interview, Michelle fondly reached for Rachael and said, "Girl...." Michelle is so regular, and we love it!
