Sarah Palin on SNL

Jack you said it so here it goes. This is the funniest skit ever! And its sadly so on point AH G.O.P are you sure? Maybe its time to get Sarah and Dick Cheney out hunting, oops!



real interview:

Open letter

Dear Sarah Palin,

I'll make this short. How is it that the rest of Union should accept you and want to see you in the white house when your own state doesn't? The largest rally ever held your state was to reject you as the GOP nominee. There is something to be said about that, don't you think?

Oh wait just like with your running mates stance on regulation you probably don't know what I speak of, so I'm saving you the trouble of looking it up and getting back to me.
Video:



oh just in case the shots in the 2nd video are not clear here they are, set to the best political song about this race to date! "Black President" Nas



Have a good one!

The F$%K it List
YES WE CAN, Change the world!

Can we please have a moment of silence....

Again my dear Mets have managed to choke their way out of the playoffs. C.J and I are sad but we will be there next year to route you on in the new house (Mr. F$%k it is in his gory, though last I checked no Yankees were going either, HATER) But there will be no tears, because as the great Jimmy Dugan said (and Tom Hanks made famous) "there is no crying in baseball".



So Mets lets pull it together, I would hate for CJ to grow up in pinstripes. OH THE THOUGHT makes me want to go to Shea tomorrow and smack each and everyone of those players! WUUU-SAAAA

Good News, it's National Stay at home week. Whose with me for calling in sick all week? :)

Hey have you all seen this, HIGH-LARIOUS! I'm gonna just put it out there I didn't say it, Sara Silverman did so FL vote Obama or no visits from the Grandkids.

A picture is worth a thousand words.”- Napolean

It's FINALLY Friday and I am in a random mood, but no lists today. Just some random 'Ish off from emails I've received:

Just a whole lot of why? LITERALLY.













I'm just shocked and rupauled by this tomfoolery right here. Is she wearing boy shorts under those leggings. It's crazy because I saw a woman on the train that looked just like this, she was so loud you couldn't help noticing her.





Don't you love songs where the singer stops singing to speak to you about what is going on? Like Oran' Juice Jones "My first instinct was to run up on you and do a rambo, but I didnt want to mess up this $3,700 lace coat" Click You without me is like cornflakes without the milk to see the video.

Then Dee sent me this: Start listening at 4:32. This woman is turning in her papers on this sorry dude:

Now for the rest of the day you will be singing "She's got papers onnnn on me". HAHA
One of the best lines of the break down: Let me tell you something Mr. look so good, this house is where you use to LIVE. HA

This commercial (also sent to me by Dee) is too cute:

Why do all kids, black, white, yellow all dance just like this at that age? Too cute and too funny.

This is one of the best sad songs ever. "Silly" Denise Williams.

me singing "Oooh Love oh love stop making a fool of me" BEST SONG EVER! For Jaded Black butterfly,

I have to admit, I didnt love this song when I was a kid. But as an adult I realize the meaning of the lyrics. And that's what I want to be a black butterfly setting the sky on fire!

I think this video randomness will become a staple on this here blog! I like it.

More fun with Palin (and John McCain)

So everyone knows I am on "Team Obama". I've spent way too much on getting t-shirts (while supporting the campaign). So this is my week to give back to President Obama with facts about the competition. All of these have been emailed to me by different friends, so for your political enjoyment here you go.

My sister posted about Sarah Palin, click Liar, Liar, pants on fire

PBS is taking a poll to see if the public thinks she's qualified, click Hell to the NAW

Did you know that more than 55 million people are not registered to vote in the country?The breakdown is
about 8.1 million unregistered yet eligible blacks, another 8 million unregistered Hispanics and nearly 7.5 million unregistered people between the ages of 18 and 24. Get out and register at least two people this week if you can. Mr F$%k it said he is going to ride through our old hood and make sure folks are registered and offer to take them to the polls.

Have you received the email about being turned away at the polls if you are wearing political gear? If not it seems that from state to state the rules differ, so please be careful, the G.O.P is counting on people to not go home and change and come back, or not to be aware of the rule at all.

More GOP lies courtesy of the straight talk express:

Two reports tonight, one from the New York Times, and the other from Newsweek, contradict John McCain's statement this week that his campaign manager Rick Davis had no involvement with mortgage giant Freddie Mac for the last several years.
The Times reports:
One of the giant mortgage companies at the heart of the credit crisis paid $15,000 a month to a firm owned by Senator John McCain's campaign manager from the end of 2005 through last month, according to two people with direct knowledge of the arrangement. The disclosure contradicts a statement Sunday night by Mr. McCain that the campaign manager, Rick Davis, had no involvement with the company for the last several years. Mr. Davis's firm received the payments from the company, Freddie Mac, until it was taken over by the government this month along with Fannie Mae, the other big mortgage lender whose deteriorating finances helped precipitate the cascading problems on Wall Street, the people said..

...On Sunday, in an interview with CNBC and The New York Times, Mr. McCain responded to a question about Mr. Davis's role in the advocacy group through 2005 by saying that his campaign manager "has had nothing to do with it since, and I'll be glad to have his record examined by anybody who wants to look at it."
Read the rest here: Straight talk derailed

Hey Palin, shouldn't you at least know where your running mate stands on regulation... My two year knows he supported deregulation for 26 years. GOP are you still behind this mess?


read the rest here: I dunno


This is the time to educate ourselves on how the GOP is trying to spin this election. As I write this John McCain has decided to suspend his campaign so he can work on the economic bailout. This seems to me a chicken shit excuse to get out of the debate with Obama, and to address the real issues that are leading our country to depression.

Granted the bailout is important, no one knows better than I (and Shelly Shell) but this is the time for the PEOPLE to hear exactly what the candidates think. And no matter who your candidate is, we need to be able to see the candidates stand up and defend their platforms and really let us know why we should vote for them.

I'm leaving the comments section open for you all to speak on the issues, to post other links that would be useful to voters, emails whatever. Today is the day to get things done, its Time to make a change. Here is a refresher for those of you who need more inspiration, or just want to be moved:



YES WE CAN!

For up to the minute news visit the Huffington Post, you'll be glad you did!





We read to know we are not alone.” - C.S. Lewis

I love to read!
I love to blog!
and before today I thought "never the two shall meet".
(besides reading blogs ofcourse, smartass)

Then I went for my daily dose of Jadeness and found out about the Blogger's Book Club. Whooo hoooo.

Visit the Blogger's Book Club and sign up to join. This should be a lot of fun and I encourage you all to sign up and get your read on.

The first book on the schedule is "The Secret Life of Bees" by Sue Monk Kidd, even if you don't participate (shame on you) you should read the book before the movie comes out (slacker). The first virtual meeting will be November 1, 2008.

Hope to see you there.

On another note: Watch Michael Moore's new movie Slacker Uprising here. M. Moore loves the people. Michael Moore is providng the entire movie free of charge. ENJOY!

Say Word?


So Clay Aikens has finally come out the closet and guess what? NO ONE CARES. The entire Globe knew you were gay when we first saw your strawberry locks on American Idol and we were cool with it, and wished then that you would be. We all chuckled as you dodge questions, gave half ass answers, or just plain old dismissed the fact that you were Gay.

But alas it took you 5 years to catch up with the rest of us. So kudos for FINALLY coming up out that closet. Welcome to your new world!

White Privilege

I received this as an email recently and thought "I'm the F$%K it List and I approve this message". Thanks K-lah.

For those who still can't grasp the concept of white privilege, or who
are constantly looking for some easy-to-understand examples of it,
perhaps this list will help.

White privilege is when you can get pregnant at seventeen like Bristol
Palin and everyone is quick to insist that your life and that of your
family is a personal matter, and that no one has a right to judge you
or your parents, because "every family has challenges," even as black
and Latino families with similar "challenges" are regularly typified
as irresponsible, pathological and arbiters of social decay.

White privilege is when you can call yourself a "f$5kin' redneck,"
like Bristol Palin's boyfriend does, and talk about how if anyone
messes with you, you'll "kick their f$%kin' ass," and talk about how
you like to "shoot shit" for fun, and still be viewed as a
responsible, all-American boy (and a great son-in-law to be) rather
than a thug.

White privilege is when you can attend four different colleges in six
years like Sarah Palin did (one of which you basically failed out of,
then returned to after making up some coursework at a community
college), and no one questions your intelligence or commitment to
achievement, whereas a person of color who did this would be viewed as
unfit for college, and probably someone who only got in in the first
place because of affirmative action.

White privilege is when you can claim that being mayor of a town
smaller than most medium-sized colleges, and then Governor of a state
with about the same number of people as the lower fifth of the island
of Manhattan, makes you ready to potentially be president, and people
don't all piss on themselves with laughter, while being a black U.S.
Senator, two-term state Senator, and constitutional law scholar, means
you're "untested."

White privilege is being able to say that you support the words "under
God" in the pledge of allegiance because "if it was good enough for
the founding fathers, it's good enough for me," and not be immediately
disqualified from holding office--since, after all, the pledge was
written in the late 1800s and the "under God" part wasn't added until
the 1950s--while believing that reading accused criminals and
terrorists their rights (because, ya know, the Constitution, which you
used to teach at a prestigious law school requires it), is a dangerous
and silly idea only supported by mushy liberals.

White privilege is being able to be a gun enthusiast and not make
people immediately scared of you.

White privilege is being able to have a husband who was a member of an
extremist political party that wants your state to secede from the
Union, and whose motto was "Alaska first," and no one questions your
patriotism or that of your family, while if you're black and your
spouse merely fails to come to a 9/11 memorial so she can be home with
her kids on the first day of school, people immediately think she's
being disrespectful.

White privilege is being able to make fun of community organizers and
the work they do--like, among other things, fight for the right of
women to vote, or for civil rights, or the 8-hour workday, or an end
to child labor--and people think you're being pithy and tough, but if
you merely question the experience of a20small town mayor and 18-month
governor with no foreign policy expertise beyond a class she took in
college--you're somehow being mean, or even sexist.

White privilege is being able to convince white women who don't even
agree with you on any substantive issue to vote for you and your
running mate anyway, because all of a sudden your presence on the
ticket has inspired confidence in these same white women, and made
them give your party a "second look."

White privilege is being able to fire people who didn't support your
political campaigns and not be accused of abusing your power or being
a typical politician who engages in favoritism, while being black and
merely knowing some folks from the old-line political machines in
Chicago means you must be corrupt.

White privilege is being able to attend churches over the years whose
pastors say that people who voted for John Kerry or merely criticize
George W. Bush are going to hell, and that the U.S. is an explicitly
Christian nation and the job of Christians is to bring Christian
theological principles into government, and who bring in speakers who
say the conflict in the Middle East is God's punishment on Jews for
rejecting Jesus, and everyone can still think you're just a good
church-going Christian, but if you're black and friends with a black
pastor who has noted (as have Colin Powell and the U.S. Department of
Defense) that terrorist attacks are often the result of U.S. foreign
policy and who talks about the history of racism and its effect on
black people, you're an extremist who probably hates America.

White privilege is not knowing what the Bush Doctrine is when asked by
a reporter, and then people get angry at the reporter for asking you
such a "trick question," while being black and merely refusing to give
one-word answers to the queries of Bill O'Reilly means you're dodging
the question, or trying to seem overly intellectual and nuanced.

White privilege is being able to claim your experience as a POW has
anything at all to do with your fitness for president, while being
black and experiencing racism is, as Sarah Palin has referred to it a
"light" burden.

And finally, white privilege is the only thing that could possibly
allow someone to become president when he has voted with George W.
Bush 90 percent of the time, even as unemployment is skyrocketing,
people are losing their homes, inflation is rising, and the U.S. is
increasingly isolated from world opinion, just because white voters
aren't sure about that whole "change" thing. Ya know, it's just too
vague and ill-defined, unlike, say, four more years of the same, which
is very concrete and certain.

White privilege is, in short, the problem.

Have American's really gotten this dumb

Pre-writers strike some of the best shows on TV are rip-off of shows on the BBC...oh you didn't know. Well they are Like

The funniest show on TV, The Office

Steve Carrell is genius as was Rick Gervais before him!

American Idol

David Archuletta and My man David Cook were awesome this last season. I posted this because this is my song.

And do you remember Absolutely Fabulous. Though not a rip off when it came to American TV most of us were hooked! I still watch it on youtube.


But this right here is a damn shame. I know while the writers were on strike, folks turned to reality tv and game shows but this one is utterly ridiculous. I happened upon this show on Fox (no surprise there) and was like WTH?! I can't seem to find that American version, but one of the teams named themselves, The Chicken Wing Chicks. Really that was the team's name, read me
Enjoy the tomfoolery righ now:



It's like human tetris, but this is just too dumb. Check out what Kitty said about this show:Disgrace to my people

Have I hit a plateau or something?

I have written a few post on some very serious and important things to me but i've only saved them as drafts. Every time I get ready to post them I start re-writing, CJ wakes up, I start to drift off, you name it and it happens. It's actually kind of frustrating. So I am making a decision today to just write and post. That's it!

All this thinking is getting in the way of me doing what I love so its back to posting what I think, unfiltered. Let's start right now with a few random things:

  • A guy on the train yesterday asked me if he could touch my hair. I was like WTH? All he said was you have gorgeous hair. WEIRDO, but thanks
  • I've been doing the research on this t-shirt company and I think I can do it. Now what the hell will I name my baby, hmmm Rude-t's, Cheeky'Ish (definition of cheeky: Impertinently bold; impudent and saucy). come on a sister needs a side gig!
  • I have been so tired lately, I might need to go to bed before midnight a few nights a week.
  • John McCain supporters really need to take a look at who they are backing. Me thinks the Straight Talk Express has been derailed.
  • Turning my TV from Bloomberg TV has gotten harder and harder.
  • Men if you are wearing a shirt that says any of the following please don't bother speaking to me: "Stop Snitching", "Bros before Hoes" (two guys tried to holla last week wearing these very shirts, my answer uhm no thanks).
  • Speaking of which, "Mr. step in front of me so you can get the seat on the train" No you can't call me. You are not a gentleman and no woman should bother with you.
  • Is bringing your kids home at midnight on a school night EVERY night acceptable somewhere? 'Cause it ain't here.
  • This weekend in MD it was like 90 some odd degrees and humid. UGH Glad to be back in NYC (though I had a great time)
  • If you are sick, too sick to take your kids to school should you really be out and about all day or home getting better (yes ya'll its about to go down!)
  • Maybe I will join Twitter so you I can tell you about the triple tomfoolery that is my life hmmm.
  • This is the best thing I've read about McCain written by a blogger. Cracked me the F$%K up. read here: McCain you need a time out Thanks F.U.
  • Yankees are out, Yeah! and if the Mets don't get it together they are going to piss me off. Straighten up and fly right damn it!
  • Anyone know a curse I can put on Philly.
  • Barclays got the INSANE deal on Lehman, 1.75bln when last year Lehman was worth 42bln.
  • I wonder how the candidates plan on keeping taxes down now? I love you Obama but that is going to be your mess to clean up, damn republicans.
  • What do you say to a bride that tells you "We really don't need anything and aren't expecting many gifts" Do you still get a gift
  • If you have a drink menu why list a function as BYOB
  • DANG my random thought are getting like a certain blogger that is in a football haze. Can you guess who...heheh(12k).
  • Teenagers on the train that act like hooligans when they are clearly just nice kids piss me off.
  • Hooligans on the train piss me off.
  • I think its about that time for me to pull out my copy of "Assata" I need grounding.
  • I'm reading "Devil in the white city", and its taking me way to long to finish (I've never taken more than a 3 days to read a book)
  • "The Temptations" movie has some of the best scenes ever. Leroy did David Ruffin justice. (start watching at 3:54, "You ungrateful son of a bitches" haha love it, then at 9:08).
  • Lest we forget Leon in the Five Heartbeats, but also this cat he was very crackish and convincing.

Wacky Wednesdays

My buddies at work put me on to this crazy a$$ movie, I had never heard of it. And I will find it on DVD, pull out the Smirnoff and laugh my a$$ off.

Enjoy! Thanks Cheerie and Crazy Brow
"Super Troopers" Meow



"Do I look like a cat to you boy? Am I jumping around all minbly bimbly from tree to tree?
" HAHAHA. TOO FUNNY

And here is the opening of SNL this weekend for those who haven't seen it yet. I love Tina Fay, and its scary how her Palin impression is dead on (only T.Fay is smart in real life). Enjoy!

Tomfoolery at its best

Is it me or is this just too much? Start watching at 1:42




The whole scene looks like it came from a movie... can you guess which one? Here's a hint, "Merry New Year"




------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

""You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig." ... "You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called 'change,'" Obama continued, "it's still gonna stink after eight years. We've had enough of the same old thing! It's time to bring about real change to Washington. And that's the choice you've got in this election.""- Barack Obama

<----McCain, Palin and the Republican party


This is the quote that the media feels the need to run every 10 minutes over and over again to make you believe that Obama called Palin a pig. Click here to read the further Dunce Cap anyone?

For those of you unfamiliar with this old saying here is a definition:

lipstick on a pig :
slang for when someone tries to dress something up, but is still that something. usually used on ugly broads, when they put on a skirt and some lipstick and well, they still look like the same disgusting pig.

Obama' only stated what we all ready know, 8 more years of this bush-isms and this administration is still the same old disgusting pig. It means wars that we should not be involved in: click here to see what Palin said about Nato and war with Russia. More economic hardship and the destruction of our stock market. Click Recession what recession? See what Palin said about the government take over of Freddie and Fannie Mae here: Freddie what?, Fannie Who?

I'm sure there was more Tomfoolery this week but I'm going to stop here. I have packing to do.

Have a great weekend all!




Yesterday was the 7th anniversary of the terror attacks on my fair city. I remember exactly where I was, what I was wearing and every single detail of what happen as I watched the second plane hit ( I will not recap on the blog) the second tower. My tower, though I had recently left my firm I still loved that tower. The first major firm I ever worked for was housed there, that was where my career really started, some of my friends were there. That was my Tower, This is my City.

I have avoided all TV on this day for 7 years, I will watch the most ignorant shows on so as not to relive the movie that so many of my fellow New Yorkers and I lived through. How ignorant? B.E.T ignorant, MTV's most ridiculous shows (Next and Parental Control). But this year I felt the need to watch the ceremony (maybe it was the French Navy officers I saw in Starbucks), and I didn't feel as sad as I thought I would.

Maybe it was the fact that earlier this week Mayor Bloomberg finally said this rebuild is taking to long, or when I saw the new design for the footprints I almost cried it was so beautiful (the eternity pools are fantastic). I don't know but I watched this morning and the normal moment of silence at the exchange didn't make me want to run out out crying. Maybe I am just excepting that this is My History. A story I will share with my son, and watch as he sits amazed at how his mom, dad and aunt made it out of a city under attack.

So much has changed in this city since that day...and though many lives were lost, and we grieve for their families, the nightmares are less, and the wounds seem to be healing slowly but surely.

Please don't stop the music.....




Sorry Obama, Michelle is a better dancer. We enjoyed your Elaine from Seinfeld jerk dance but your wife has better rhythm. Just one more reason to love her.


And as always I LOVE ELLEN!

Thanks Leggs for the video!


This video seemed like its a good way to avoid all the sadness that fills this day..

More funnies with Ellen and Michelle Obama

I rebuke thee MTV....

A few weeks ago I told you all couldn't wait to see "Exiled" on MTV.

Exiled is a show about those ridiculously spoiled kids on "my super sweet sixteen" being sent away to live in third world countries and forced to survive. I wanted to watch so I could laugh at the miserable kids cry (Save it, I've booked my ticket down) but it was sheer disappointment.

Just the same old scripted nonsense! There is really no way these children did a complete 360 in 1 week. Yeah not being able to shower is a huge thing but come on one week? By the end of the first episode the spoiled brat had the members of the Masai tribe dancing to "Freakum dress". Beyonce, REALLY? This is a tribe of noble people, who have turned down government aid and held onto their own customs. And in one felt swoop the kids have been corrupted by a little rich girl and her ipod.

And what the bloody hell are a tribe of nomads going to do with a Waterford crystal vase. UGH!

While I was watching I couldn't help thinking, where did she get speakers to play them that song? I mean for God sakes she was living in a hut made out of cow dung, and I am pretty sure there was no electricity.

I think it would have served the world better to send her silly father there. He spoiled her, never teaching her the value of everything she has but then he gets mad...Hmmm sounds stupid to me.

So what was the point? To get TV junkies like me to tune in, well I did for the first episode and I will not watch another. My braincells are way to precious to be wasted

Jesus keep me near the cross

Is it wrong to not like an 8 and 2 year old?

That's all. Vent done. (I'm sure this is only part one of many to come)

Post for today below.

Throwbacks on a Saturday

So the storms seems to have gotten my message (temporarily) and let up on the rain. As I was sitting in the house watching my weekend crack, Vh1 soul I found my self jamming to Lisa Lisa and Cult jam. I forgot how many jams they had! Then I had to go download "Someone to love me for me", this song is just beautiful.
I wanted to post them but all of their videos are disabled, for real! I am so through with labels doing that with classic videos. I know its all that blah blah about copyright infringement, but its still annoying.

So if you are a youngin' and don't know the song click Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Anywhooo... The NYC Blogger brunch was a success. Folks were not kept at home by the threat of rain and 40 miles per hour winds, (well only my sis Mrs. MR but in her defense she lives in LAWNG ISLAND). unlimited Mimosa will do that to you. A good time was had by all....See pics of Jaded, EB, Dollface, ShellyShell, Lani and Lena here: Hurricane WHAT?! Some of the highlights:
  • Eb talking about how much she loves spicy french fries at 40/40, I was ready to go there at that moment just to get them. And how much she hated Justin's (I second that,but Justin's wasn't half as bad as Mama Dukes, his momma restaurant).

More WTF moments.

I'm always amazed at the tomfoolery that goes on in the NYC streets especially now that I am midtown, here are a few:

Today I was on my way to lunch and overheard two men talking. The first guy screamed "Did you see that A$?" and points his friend in the direction of the woman passing. The second guy was like "DAYYYYUUUMMMMM". They were both dragging their tongues, and all I could do is shake my head as I went to get my lunch. On the way out the second guy taps me on the shoulder and asks can he call me sometimes too ( I was on the phone). My reply "Yeah, No thanks".
Now did he really think I would give him my number? ILLLK!

The J.crew near my job has a lot of windows and reflective surfaces, and I watched this woman walk and check herself out in every inch of these windows and walls. I cracked up when she was so busy checking herself out and bumped into this angry woman. Ha!
So much vanity!

I know those leather leggings were a season must but in 80+ heat in NY? I think not, especially with a short shirt and boots. Long riding boots. What is it with people and boots lately anyway? I saw a woman with Uggs on. Now granted they are very comfy but it was like 1000 degrees out.

Why are all these new dolls for little girls so whorish? Short skits, big red lips, wide eyes with long lashes. Something is just all kinds of wrong with this. These are the latest is the skank-ola dolls (first were the Bratz).

I saw this in Times Square:
Only words missing "Obama" but I'm glad its up there. And hopefully people are looking up and see it and remember in November that its time for change. (stepping down off my soap box)

I'm so over the street vendor not warming up the damn pretzels. Jeez who wants that gigantic pretzel and its cold as ice. I am not a tourist I know better. And I will tell you so homie!

Am I the only woman that knows to buy open back shoes a 1/2 size bigger (and open toe). So you don't look like a cane woman with your toes dragging all across the concrete.

Speaking of fashion, why? just why does this dude have the sticker on his pants. Did we really need to know his jeans were Sean John W 38 length 32.My buddy Cheerie doesn't like that I say "I don't like Cream (white guys) in my coffee". HA so now I say it just to get her going. haha

Ok there is one exception to that rule, Tom Welling. That's it all other cream is off limit. (oh and Wentworth Miller but technically he's black).

I know I should but I can't bring myself to watch the Republican convention. I will get the updates from the Daily Show. hehe

Really McCain, Sarah Palin.... really? When he first picked her I thought touche old man! touche! and then I the news started flooding in about her. She's SCANDALOUS! I'm not even referring to the latest news about her teen daughter being 5 month pregnant (Good work Chrisitan conservatives abstinence programs). I'm more concerned about her other skeletons: Click here to see shoot the damn wolves and here I'm with old man river.

hmm this is an interesting view on why she is qualified to be VP. Click I'm a crazy bleach blonde

I wish the celebrities would think before they speak, or better yet shut up. Diddy SHHH!

Really Diddy Ciroc Obama? No Black people in Alaska? No crackheads in Alaska? Oh yes Diddy that makes a lot of sense. Black people, crackheads and crime. Lord help me. Michelle Obama can't be McCain's running mate... OH dear! Calling all "Youf" please go out and vote but don't listen to Diddy he's an IDIOT. .. Obama does not need this sort of negative BS surrounding him.
No Diddy you are buggin' the F$%K out.

What are some of your WTF moments from the last week... I have a hell of a lot more but I will save them for later in the week.
