I was (and I'm still) going to go see Tyler Perry's new film "Temptation" but it happened to come out the same weekend as a planned vacation. So I though, no big. I'll see it on Thursday, I thought. But then it started on Facebook with enraged friends giving away the ending, screaming to anyone who would listen how infuriating the film was.

Seems HuffPo chased around those recalcitrant "maybe he isn't, I need to see the paperwork" Congress-folk for naught because they all voted unanimously on a resolution honoring Hawaii's induction into the union that also states that President Barack Obama is, ahem, a native of it. The resolution is being pushed by Rep. Neil Abercrombie.
My fair Uncle Rolly Rolls is getting a new show ya'll! Break out the balloons and streamers! CNN finally stopped dicking on home skillet around and pony upped a ... wait? What's that you say? CNN didn't follow through? Then who the hell gave the man I lurve a show? TV One?!?! Can I even get that on my TV?
Granny Snob, a woman who has fought poverty, stroke and cancer to remain the quick witted, incredible woman she is today, is a nearly pack-a-day smoker. While visiting us this weekend, a house filled with non-smokers, she got her smoke on in our basement and out on the patio with regularity. No one likes that she smokes. Everyone would love it if she quit (especially after beating back a stroke AND cancer), but she refuses.
She is also 81-years-old and honestly doesn't give a crap what we think. Pass that lady her lighter and her Winstons!
While I don't know if the president smokes Winstons (And goodness, I hope not. Those are some cragnasty ciggies.) I'm pretty sure if he asked nicely enough, Granny Snob would let him bum one of her cancer sticks. And she doesn't share those things with ANYONE. But he is the president.
That said, why do reporters treat the president's smoking like some tawdry secret? Everyone knows that he was a smoker. Everyone knows that he is trying to quit and that quitting is the hardest part. Everyone knows that cigarettes are bad for you, but what is up with this?
It's been bollocks here in the US. If you want to stay up the two best live blogs on-line I've found are on Huffington Post and Andrew Sullivan's "The Daily Dish." Not to mention Twitter. I can't believe how pathetic the coverage on this story has been in the states. Makes me seriously wonder how today's TV news would handle the massacre in Tianamen Square.
If you know any other good sources, please share in the comments.
First there was actor Alan Cumming who, quite tastelessly, decided to pronounce his theories on the Presidential wang. And that was unnecessary, but it was Alan Cumming, an over-the-top actor/celebrity known for his squickiness.
I mean, he created a mens' cologne called "Cumming" and shot nudes of himself for the adverts. And other than him being a brilliant actor, ain't shit about that man that's sexy.
It was expected from him, to say the least.
But it was also down right modest compared to the abomination Michelle Obama Watch reported Monday.

GIBSON: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you?
PALIN: They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.
It's me! On Huffington Post And I'm complaining about all the Jesus pandering in this presidential campaign. It's not that I don't love Jesus. I just don't love Jesus pandering!
