The Most Surprising Stat From VMA/DNC Night

Obama Vs. VMA Twitter Mentions

If I’m reading this correctly, a ton of Tweeps actually tuned out the VMA’s and tuned into the DNC once Obama started speaking. I guess people aren’t as politically apathetic as I thought.

P.S. It was definitely a good idea to move the Giants/Cowboys game from Thursday to Wednesday and let Obama compete with the VMA’s. MTV just sucks these days and the NFL is still awesome.

So the RNC is going on, and even though it’s pretty boring, it does provide a plethora of blog-worthy shit I just can’t ignore. The best moment so far came from Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire when she said, “President Obama has never even run a lemonade stand - and it shows.” 
Every great leader in the history of the universe has run a great lemonade stand. Obama better step his game up.

Just One Problem With Political News Coverage

The Washington Post is really excited about its new community engagement tool, The Issue Engine, where readers can choose to endorse candidates on specific issues and share their opinions with friends on Facebook. This would be a good way to have a discussion, but there are only two candidates to choose from.

So instead of aiding discussion, WaPo is actually telling people what to discuss. And to its credit, almost every news organization in the country does the same thing, so The Post isn’t the only place doing it. But just because Obama and Romney are the only candidates that have a chance of winning doesn’t mean “journalists” should endorse that bullshit. Journalists are supposed to inform the public, not just go with the flow. If people were more informed, then maybe someone other than a Democrat or Republican would also have a chance of winning. Hopefully this helps you get more followers though.

Aurora, Oak Creek, NYC and countless cities across the country have been home to senseless tragedies of gun violence. The truth is that criminals are going to get guns whether they’re illegal or not, so it’s only right to give law-abiding citizens access to the same guns. But just because we legalize war doesn’t mean we should criminalize love. It actually doesn’t even make sense.

So Oxford and Webster decided it was a good time to officially add some words to the English language and this is what they came up with. I’m pretty sure everyone will be a vegetable in 10 years.

This is mainly the media’s fault because they prioritize making money over informing the public, but since we have the Internet, we don’t have to listen to them anymore. Start doing your own research, people.

I honestly don’t know whether McKayla Maroney is not impressed with Michelle Obama’s impression of not being impressed, or Michelle Obama is not impressed with McKayla Maroney’s impression of not being impressed. My head is spinning trying to figure it out.

So some senate candidate from Missouri said women don’t get pregnant from “legitimate rape” because their bodies shut down. Nobody in the world knows what the fuck that means, but GOPers are always looking for new ways to say rape isn’t rape. That’s why I made this little flow chart to figure out when rape is really rape, and when it’s really something else entirely.
