Happy Birthday to President Obama.  Tomorrow he turns 48—wait, I’m sorry, that’s his approval rating.


President Obama’s approval rating has dropped to an all-time low of 48%. President Bush said it looks like he’s finally getting the hang of things.


Barack Obama’s physician reports the president is in great shape, saying “The guy is built like a rock, he could probably bench-press me.” Then he said the same thing about Michelle Obama.


President Obama drank beer with Sergeant James Crowley and Professor Henry Louis Gates at the White House. There was actually an awkward moment when one of them asked for something stiffer, and Nancy Pelosi showed up.


Gates said he and Sergeant James Crowley may go to a Boston Red Sox or Celtics game together. Sergeant Crowley had originally suggested a Bruins game, to which Gates said, “You’re kidding, right?”

It was revealed the White House makes visiting politicians pay for their own lunches. They made the rule after a surprise visit from Al Gore.


Sarah Palin’s lawyer threatened to serve libel papers to a kindergarten teacher in Alaska for posting on her blog that she and her husband, Todd, are getting a divorce. If true, this would’ve been the second thing this summer Palin quit right in the middle of.

Senator John McCain has 1.1 million followers on Twitter. But in fairness, most of them are just following him to make sure he doesn’t wander off.

Washington, D.C. newspaper “The Hill” released its list of the 50 most beautiful people on Capitol Hill, with Representative Martin Heinrich of New Mexico comes in at number 1.  Better luck next time, Henry Waxman.

California signed an $85 million budget on Tuesday which contains cuts to child welfare programs, health care for the poor and AIDS prevention efforts. Rush Limbaugh said it’s moments like this that make him proud to be an American.


It was on Thursday in 1956 the phrase “In God We Trust” was adopted as the U.S. national motto.  Up ‘til then, everybody thought God was a real poser.


The British Army is warning that many of its soldiers have become so fat that they couldn’t be deployed to conflict zones. To which the soldiers said, “Exactly.”


A new study finds that the rate of childhood obesity in the United States has tripled since 1984.  In fact if they were around today, The Fat Boys would just be known as The Boys.

Penn State was rated the number 1 party school of 2009 by Princeton Review.  University of Florida was #2.  Coming in a surprising third: Devry Institute Online. will open a retail store on Facebook – the company already has applications on Blackberry and the iPhone. The company says this is all part of its plan to make sending flowers to someone even more impersonal.


A new study finds that divorce can hurt a person’s health, due to loss of sleep, stress, and lack of exercise. To which John Gosselin said, “I’ll take my chances.”


Kid Rock said in a Rolling Stone interview that “Twitter is gay” and that if anything relevant he has to say he will “bottle it up and then squeeze it onto a record somewhere.” So if you buy one of Kid Rock’s records, you may want to get it sterilized.


Due to positive feedback from listeners, Whitney Houston will move up the date of her comeback album “I Look to You” from September 1 to August 31. They’re moving it up a whole day.  This is great news if you’re a Whitney Houston fan—and a moth.


Shaquille O’Neal revealed on his Twitter page that he was denied entry to the White House on Monday after he walked up to the front gate, asking if he could see President Obama. Also, it probably didn’t help that he was dressed as Kazam the Rapping Genie.

A teenager in England tracked down a gang that stole his iPhone by using “Find My iPhone” app on the new 3GS version, which allows users to track down their phones if they are lost or stolen.
