Obama Family Nominates “First Cheeseburger”

Delish! Michelle Obama took Sasha and Malia out for a meal at Good Stuff Eatery, a one year-old restaurant run by a former Top Chef contestant.

Michelle is said to particularly have approved of the onion rings, and several of the restaurant’s Obama Burgers were served as well. The Obama Burger comes with (blue) cheese, (red) onion, and (white) horseradish mayo. Oh, and smoked bacon.

Man, it makes me hungry just typing that out.

I want to point out two awesome things about this story:

1. Michelle Obama isn’t afraid to eat real food out in public. Unlike a lot of public figures, Michelle eats real food and she’s not ashamed of it. Such a refreshing contrast to so many “oh I couldn’t possibly eat a whole carrot” celebrities who have bought into the anorexic culture propagated by Hollywood.
And you know what? Michelle looks damned good. A lot better than Madonna, that’s for sure.

2. I’ve been racking my brains, but I can’t remember a single time when George W left the confines of the White House. Certainly not to just take the kids out for burgers. (Like a regular human being.) It’s so refreshing to have a family in the White House that doesn’t hide behind the couches, living in a state of siege, acting like us regular people are the enemy or something. I mean, when he wasn’t “clearing brush” at his ranch in Texas for months at a time.

The Obamas LIKE going out to dinner. They LIKE talking to people. They LIKE getting out of the house and having a regular dinner, like regular people. It’s sad how mind-blowing this is.

Hairpocalypse 2009

Where did all the hair go? I take a personal interest in this latest rash of head shavings and close croppings, because I did the same thing myself about a month ago. Cut it all off and sent it to Locks of Love – one pound six ounces of hair!

Let’s go chronologically. First out of the gate was Cassandra Ventura, who shaved half of her head 80s style. By way of explanation she twittered, “Yeah, I did it. They ask why?? LOL B/C I WOKE UP AND FELT LIKE IT!!!”

Next, MTV host La La Vasquez picked up the torch, shaving half her head and donating the snipped hair to Locks of Love. A woman after my own heart! Vasquez twittered, “Cassie started the “MOVEMENT” i did the “LA LA REMIX”..lol..who will be next..? feels good to let go!! ”

On July 21st, Rihanna landed in London with a spiky/shaved 80s haircut. This doesn’t seem as drastic a departure for her – more of a natural transition from her previous bob. In fact, of all the wacky haircuts this summer, I think Rihanna’s suits her the best.

Today, Beyonce Knowles’ younger sister Solange upped the ante with her new do. It’s as if Solange is saying, “I’ll see your 80s pop star haircuts, and raise you a Will Smith Fresh Prince fade!”

While researching this article, I suddenly learned that Michelle Obama has a new hairstyle, as well. I’m not sure if it technically belongs among the ranks of Rihanna’s wacky Simon Le Bon groove, since Michelle’s hair is just plain classy. But I’m including it here for the sake of completeness.

The New Yorker Magazine Cover is OFFENSIVE to Barack Obama

Is it just me, or is this just too far? I know that this is supposed to be a joke, but I do not find it funny at all! This is the new cover of The New Yorker Magazine for July 21, 2008. I am not digging it, it is rather offensive and juvenile, just like the republican right…all wrong!
