Hillary Clinton's Relationship Status With 2016: It's Complicated

The buzz about Hillary Clinton's potential 2016 run for president started, as these things do, as soon as President Obama's reelection was confirmed. Within a week, PolicyMic said that she was the number one pick for a Democratic candidate, writing that "There's no one that Democrats would like to have running in 2016… » 8/14/13 2:00pm 8/14/13 2:00pm

Hypothetically, Hillary Clinton Is For Sure Running for President

Speaking at a women’s lecture series in Toronto, noted HGTV enthusiast Hillary Clinton dropped a bombshell. An atomic bombshell.

NPR Retracts Insights on 'Perky' Kirsten Gillibrand's 'Girlie Voice'

New York Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's star has been rising for the past several years. She was elected to fill Hillary Clinton's senate seat in 2010, and since then, has been championed by Democratic party stars like Howard Dean or the super-PAC EMILY's List as a possible contender for president.

Maybe It’s Time for Kirsten Gillibrand to Leapfrog Hillary Clinton

As we, the sycophantic public, dangle precariously between presidential election cycles, only one question keeps us attuned to the distant rumblings of potential candidates as they posture, pivot, and promenade their way to a spot in the presidential primary spotlight of 2016: could Kirsten Gillibrand leapfrog Hillary… » 4/29/13 1:05pm 4/29/13 1:05pm

Last week, President Barack Obama and his family were in Hawaii for their annual Christmas vacation. Photographers captured several moments of POTUS during the trip, including a jaunt to a shave ice shop and a golf outing.

Secret Service Exhausted by Massive Number of Death Threats Against…

Being the President is a much harder job than I CAN B PRESIDENT Barbie and the movie First Kid make it seem. In fact, one of the occupational hazards of the job are near-constant death threats. And — SURPRISE — the same President who inspires billboards more racist than a cartoon version of Birth of a Nation starring… » 11/26/12 5:00pm 11/26/12 5:00pm

The Hug Is Never Just a Hug: Bill and Barack Are Perfectly Physical

You'd have to be living under a rock (or at least without an internet connection) to have somehow missed the news that Bill Clinton completely slayed his forty-eight-minute speech at the DNC last night. Both Twitter and Facebook were bursting with energy regarding the former president, though it wasn't just because of… » 9/06/12 1:20pm 9/06/12 1:20pm

Everybody and Their Mothers Think Hillary Clinton Should Run for…

Two notable Democrats have recognized the cosmic inevitability that Hillary Clinton will one day become president of a utopian future nation comprised of every North and South America nation.

GOP Group Calls Obama 'Metrosexual Black Abe Lincoln,' Which Sounds…

A Super PAC hell-bent on unseating President Obama this fall has unveiled their genius plan for convincing America that its current Commander-in-Chief is unfit to lead. Get an "extremely literate" black Republican to appear on a commercial and refer to the President as a "black, metrosexual Abe Lincoln." That would be a… » 5/17/12 12:10pm 5/17/12 12:10pm

Sarah Palin Unwisely Challenges Barack Obama to a Duel of Words


Sarah Palin isn't too pleased that President Obama's campaign used footage of her in this recent fundraising video, and she's decided to fight back by challenging Barack Obama to a good old-fashioned debate. It's a curious strategy, but we have no choice to hear her out because she posted a 583-word missive about it… » 3/14/12 10:20am 3/14/12 10:20am

Rick Santorum Makes the Bizarre Promise to Never Speak the Name of Any …

In honor of today being Super Tuesday—the moment very few of us have been waiting for—here is a particularly ridiculous Rick Santorum quote. Yesterday at a campaign event, Rick said he was sick and tired of President Obama blaming gas prices on previous administrations.

Mitt Romney Pulls Off Wins in Michigan and Arizona, Rains on Santorum's …

Mittens Romney, ftw! He handily defeated Santorum in tonight's Arizona primary, and Michigan has now been called in his favor too—though it remains possible that he'll win the popular vote there but not the delegate vote. They allocate their delegates on a proportional basis, and the count is still being listed as too… » 2/28/12 10:35pm 2/28/12 10:35pm

Sarah Palin Reveals Diabolical Plan to Spontaneously Run for President

Sarah Palin has always enjoyed toying with us, but for the past few months she's seemed largely irrelevant. We all thought she'd given up on public office and was content to mouth off for cash and/or serve America in other ways. But it seems we have all been had. In an interview with Fox Business's Eric Bolling, Palin… » 2/17/12 11:00am 2/17/12 11:00am

Obama Doesn't Have Time for Jan Brewer's Shit, But Don't Tell Her That

President Obama arrived in Phoenix yesterday and was greeted at the airport by Arizona governor Jan Brewer. And that was where the niceties ended. Brewer gave Obama a hand-written letter, and then the two got into a tense conversation. They were seen talking over each other, and she pointed at him.
