Caption This: Obama, Biden jog around the WH in “Let’s Move” campaign

LOL. This was just too good to resist. TPM sets it up:

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden jogged around the White House in a video released Thursday for the fourth anniversary of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign.

Video (yes, there is ACTING involved here):

And here’s your “Caption This” image, which is a screencap from the video:

In the event you think briskly sprinting around the White House is something new for President Obama and Vice President Biden, please think again – they take the opportunity to run away from things every chance they get! :))

Yes, I’ll be here all week … hold the applause, please! ;)

Humor Alert: VP Biden calls the wrong guy to congratulate in Boston mayoral race

Never change, Joe! Never change. : )

When there’s not much else left to laugh at in the world, there is our dear Vice President we can look to:

BOSTON — Moments before taking the stage at the Park Plaza Hotel to celebrate his close victory over City Councilor John Connolly, Boston mayor-elect Marty Walsh took phone calls from major dignitaries including President Barack Obama and Mayor Tom Menino.

Reporters waiting for his speech were grumpy that Walsh was running late but one VIP did not delay Walsh’s arrival on stage: Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden initially called former Ted Kennedy staffer Marty Walsh to congratulate and started the phone call saying “You son of a gun!” The mixup is a common occurrence for the lesser known former staffer according to those with knowledge of the phone call.

Biden later called the correct Walsh but missed him and left a voicemail congratulating him on his win in the race according to Walsh.


Biden 2016, anyone? ;)

Photo of the Day: @AnthonyWeiner poses with “The Big Salami”

Just a little over a week before the mayoral primary is held in NYC comes this photo of disgraced former Congressman-turned-mayoral-candidate Anthony Weiner at a local deli (hat tip):

The New York Daily News published the photo and had this humorous write-up:

Anthony Weiner showed off a big Italian sausage at an Arthur Ave. Deli Saturday, agreeing to pose with the ample-sized meat on a campaign stop in the Bronx.

When the Democratic mayoral hopeful walked into Mike’s Deli, owner David Greco said he whipped out the sausage right away.


Greco said Weiner’s sense of humor impressed him. “There were guys pushing salamis into his face. My people, they have no filters,” he said of his employees. “But he was cool about it.”

LOL. Not quite sure which photo is worse – that one, or the one below of him holding a press conference yesterday on the difference between textbooks and Kindles that drew … one reporter (via Twitchy):

I’m sure the only reason there was only a one single reporter at a Weiner press conference Saturday was because it was Labor Day weekend, not because he has seriously tanked in the polls. Yep, I’m sure that’s the real excuse…

Friday Fun: What happened with the #BreakfastClub crew on Monday?

Was talking about this on Twitter earlier today, and thought it might be a fun topic for discussion/speculation here after the last several weeks of depressing news. A question often asked of the cast and crew of the movie “The Breakfast Club” is what happened with the crew of unlikely allies when Monday rolled around. Did they speak to each other in the hallway? Did Claire and Bender openly declare their love?  Did Andy and Allison start dating? Did Brian become respected by the popular crowd? For those of you who haven’t seen the 1985 cult classic, here’s a primer.

Ready, set, go! Give it your best shot.  This is not a trick question. In reality, no one really knows.  :)

”Don’t you forget about me …”

Unintentionally funny moment of the day: Weiner tells rude heckler to “beat it”

I gotta admit, even for a serial jerk like Weiner, this heckler was incredibly rude … especially considering she was in front of kids when she went on her profanity-laced tirade (LANGUAGE WARNING):

Anthony Weiner was roasted tonight in Brooklyn.

The embattled mayoral candidate faced down his angriest heckler to date in the shadow of the Barclays Center, fending off repeated f-bombs from a woman who claimed to be a former Weiner voter.

“You are disgusting! You are an embarrassment of a third-generation native,” said Jane Borock, 35, as she waded into a meet-and-greet with voters in a plaza bordering Atlantic Avenue. “Your little overnight sleepover in public housing. F*ck you! Go back to your little Hamptons house.”

Mr. Weiner, still playfully quizzing a mother and a young girl, tried to calm the woman down. “You’re very passionate. I appreciate your view.”

“I’m passionate? More passionate than you on Twitter. I’m a social media expert. Get someone to handle your shit! You are disgusting. Disgusting,” she railed. Ms. Borock, wielding a camera phone, then turned to the press surrounding her. “And f*ck you all for covering …”

“Whoa! Whoa,” said Mr. Weiner, growing angry. “You’ve got little kids here. You’ve got little kids here … just don’t curse.”

“Little kids?! You have NO right to talk about little kids … Talking about little kids? Social media? You wanna see some Twitter action?” she demanded.


As Ms. Borock, an art director, vented to reporters, Mr. Weiner continued to meet voters and take pictures. But the antics continued when Mr. Weiner was approached by a man wearing a small white fedora who said he was homeless, and asked: “When you become mayor, will you still be on the Internet showing yourself?”

“Uh, no,” Mr. Weiner said.

Ms. Borock, still railing about the affordable housing that she said the new Barclays Center had displaced, re-entered the fray after a brief lull. Mr. Weiner, however, was no longer willing to stomach Ms. Borock’s wrath without a fight.

“Oh, take is easy. Lighten up. You put your show on. Why don’t you beat it? Beat it!” Mr. Weiner shot back, strutting in front of his sign-holding volunteers.

“Beat it?” Ms. Borock, incredulous, said back.

Several men to the side yelled encouragements for Mr. Weiner.

Ummm … well, the double entendre-fest continues. That’s all I’ll say about that.

In related news, Mr. Weiner’s former online mistress, Sydney Leathers recently did a “bikini photo shoot” for the NY Post, now has a porn video out and is giving “tips” on how to “seduce politicians.” Sigh.

I’m not even a voter in the NYC mayoral race and I’m already ready for it to be over.  Please, NYC Democrats, do the right thing for once and don’t pick Mr. Weiner to be your nominee for mayor.   Please?

Carlos Danger

”Embarrassing” doesn’t quite cover this guy.

Friday Humor: Anthony Weiner meets the “real” Carlos Danger (VIDEO)

Oh my gosh. Literally laughed out loud at this. And yes, it actually happened (earlier this week before his presser):

The below photo of “Carlos Danger” is via NY Magazine, which noted yesterday – courtesy of the New York Observer – that this was likely a New York Post stunt. Wouldn’t put it past them!
