Here’s a picture of President Obama that’s making the rounds right now. The picture was taken on Sunday and shows Obama realizing that he dialed the wrong number while making calls from a local campaign field office during a unscheduled visit in Orlando, Florida.
He looks exhausted.

This is outstanding.

Romney Campaign Staged Donations At Storm Relief Event

wilwheaton:

Just to be safe, campaign aides reportedly spent $5,000 at a local Wal-Mart on supplies that could be put on display. When supporters arrived at the rally-turned-relief event, they were treated to the 10-minute video about Romney’s life, which was first unveiled at the RNC. The event ended with supporters lined up to hand over supplies and meet Romney. But according to BuzzFeed, this donation process was also staged:

Empty-handed supporters pled for entrance, with one woman asking, “What if we dropped off our donations up front?”

The volunteer gestured toward a pile of groceries conveniently stacked near the candidate. “Just grab something,” he said.

Two teenage boys retrieved a jar of peanut butter each, and got in line. When it was their turn, they handed their “donations” to Romney. He took them, smiled, and offered an earnest “Thank you.”

MOTHERFUCKERS

election:

TMZ spoke with multiple people in the bayonet industry who tell us they were shocked and even offended when Obama brought up the weapon during last night’s debate. 

FYI — Obama was going after Romney when he said, “You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed.”

[…]

We spoke with Dan Riker from Bayonet Inc. — a leading military surplus outlet that specializes in bayonets — who tells us he believes Obama’s comment was “ignorant … because our soldiers still use bayonets.”

Kudos to TMZ for being first to the story on outrage in the bayonet industry following the president’s dig at Mitt Romney’s archaic Navy expectations last night. We’ll keep you updated on the horse lobby’s response if and when they trot it out.

—Cord Jefferson

Well, he didn’t say “we have NO horses and bayonets,” now, did he? Dick.

Man, fuck a poll. I don’t want to read any more poll results, analyses of polls, unskewed polls, poll commentary, POLECATS, FLAGPOLESITTAS, ET CETERA.

Despite asking a question that raised the hackles of the anti-feminist brigade, Fenton was vehement when I asked her if she’s a feminist. ‘Absolutely not,’ she said. ‘I’m a 24 year old woman that lives in the United States and feels like I should be treated the same as anyone else. That makes me a normal human being.’

UGH

I do not think that word means what you think it means. Dummy.

Romney brags: “No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate.”

Congratulations on being jaw-droppingly white, Mitt!

The latest survey, from June, found that 54 percent of those asked said they would vote a “well- qualified” atheist into the Oval Office— the highest percentage since Gallup began asking the question in 1958, when only 18 percent said they would back a nonbeliever.
