Sex and the prez
Sarah Jessica Parker has a new Mr. Big.
The "Sex and the City" actress appears in a new, flirty Obama campaign TV ad.
"OK, the guy who ended the war in Iraq, the guy who says you should be able to marry anyone you want, and the guy who created 4 million new jobs. That guy -- President Obama -- and Michelle are coming to my house for dinner on June 14. And I want you to be there, too," Parker tells viewers.
She also invites participation in a fundraising sweepstakes "because we need him and he needs us."
Like some girls need Manolos.
Clinton in 2016?
Presidential campaigns are full-time activities, and some folks are already speculating about prospects for 2016 -- including fans of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is the latest person to say that Clinton -- who lost to Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primaries -- should try it again in 2016.
"Why wouldn't she run?" the former speaker of the House told the San Francisco Chronicle.
If she wins, maybe Sarah Jessica Parker could help her pick the male interns. Revenge, in this case, is better served hot.
At an LGBT fundraiser in Beverly Hills, Obama delivered a joke that was either wickedly clever, inappropriately off-color -- or simply about push-ups.
Referencing his wife Michelle's appearance on event host Ellen DeGeneres' show back in February, the president noted that DeGeneres "accepts a little bit of teasing about Michelle beating her in push-ups. But I think she claims that Michelle didn't go all the way down."
The audience roared its delight as he let the line "hang naughtily," as a White House pool reporter wrote.
Not surprisingly, Twitter roared back with different reactions altogether. Was the joke below the belt or just misinterpreted?
Maybe "don't ask, don't tell" is the right policy on this kerfuffle.
Keeping up with Rush
The White House hit back hard at charges that the president is spending too much time courting celebrities for campaign cash and star endorsements at a time when many Americans are struggling.
Asked about conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh's mockery of the president as "Barack Hussein Kardashian," Obama press secretary Jay Carney shot back: "Two words: Donald Trump. Next question."
