Twos a crowd

December 3, 2009

Poor POTUS can’t catch a break.  The Salahis crashed his very successful first State Dinner with Dr. Manmohan Singh, and all Google searches of Obama’s name soon thereafter almost exclusively yielded stories about the “Dinner Crashers.”

Now, Obama’s name and his predilection for golf will be further inadvertantly “sullied” by the upcoming cover of Golf Digest, in which editors photoshopped Tiger Woods and the First Golfer onto the cover together.  The article’s title?  “10 Tips Obama Can Take From Tiger.”  Ouch.

I'll take your golf tips, but keep the marriage advice to yourself! (Golf Digest)


Obama loves Benny Beaver

The First Family apparently isn’t letting a piddly security breach stop them from rooting against the home team.   The entire First Family cheered for Oregon State this weekend in their basketball game against GW.  Why did they traitorously root against the home team?  Because FLOTUS’ bro, Craig Robinson, is the coach, of course!  All that presidential cheering must’ve worked–Oregon State beat GW 3-2.  Maybe Obama and co. should start cheering for the Redskins

Hidden POTUS, Crouching Tiger

November 18, 2009

POTUS finished his trip to China with visit the Great Wall.  Notwithstanding the frigid temps (Obama exclaimed he wasn’t aware China got as cold as Chicago), the President squeezed in a half hour tour of this World Heritage site

Obama also met very briefly with his step-brother Mark Ndesandjo, who was still “over the moon” about the mini-reunion.  Apparently, the brothers haven’t seen each other since POTUS’ inauguration, but Obama got to meet Ndesandjo’s new wife and catch up on family chit chat.

We just hope Obama was able to pick up a pair of these awesome kicks before heading to South Korea.

Michelle & Jill Hit the Empire State

October 28, 2009

Jay-Z and Alicia Key’s performance at Game 1 of the World Series  was postponed — due to a little rain. But that didn’t stop FLOTUS and VICE FLOTUS (Dr. Jill Biden) from making an appearance. The glamorous duo, decked out in World Series gear, escorted Yankees legend Yogi Berra out on to the field at Yankee Stadium as part of pre-game ceremonies paying tribute to  veterans. The game highlighted the work of welcomebackveterans.org, an organization that awards grants to non-profits that target veterans’ needs.

Before leaving the field,  Yankees captain and resident hunk — Derek Jeter —  greeted them both with a kiss. He better watch out, because nobody messes with with JOE! 

Is he here?

As for Jay-Z and Alicia Keys — they will perform their song Empire State of Mind at Game 2:


Round of Horse, POTUS?

October 26, 2009

The alleged fraternal order at the White House has DC abuzz since POTUS’ Congressional basketball game.  I guess appointing more women Cabinet/Cabinet level positions in his first year than any other president is just not enough. Nor is being surrounded by strong intelligent women both professionally and personally. Yesterday, Melody Barnes, Obama’s chief domestic policy adviser, joined POTUS on the green (that’s golf).  But keep an eye out for Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius — she may be the first woman to serve POTUS on the basketball court. Check out her smack talking on Leno:


FLOTUS’ Hoop Skillz!

October 23, 2009

We all know about the Baller-in-Cheif,  but on Wendesday,  Flotus strutted her playground skills while hosting the Healthy Kids Fair at the White House. In addition to promoting her program to improve children’s health through exercise and healthy eating, she played doubleDutch, hula-hooped (142 times), tried to walk on a tightrope, and ran an obstacle course! Without question, she is the coolest FLOTUS EVER! 

And while she promoted healthy eating — she also shamelessly admitted her love for french fries. She is human after all!

Update: the Obamas weren’t enough…

October 2, 2009

The IOC has apparently dismissed Chicago and Tokyo as possible hosts for the 2016 Summer Games.  Now, the race remains between Madrid and Rio de Janeiro.
