Kanye, even Pres. Obama thinks you suck

911kanye.jpgNow, that's an achievement -- harshed on by the POTUS. Additionally, LOL at ABC for the fine editorial control on its Web publishing operation. What does "off the record" mean, Terry? Did a supervillain put stupid powder in the water supply? Raw Story | President Obama reportedly calls Kanye West ‘jackass’
“Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a ‘jackass’ for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential,” “Nightline” co-anchor Terry Moran wrote Monday to his followers on Twitter. But because the remarks were supposed to be off the record, ABC quickly pulled them, and issued an apology. “In the process of reporting on remarks by President Obama that were made during a CNBC interview, ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview,” ABC said in a statement.. “This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again.” Moran’s tweet was deleted, but is still accessible here.

Detroit Billionaire gets teenage volunteers to strip asbestos from his property

Asbestos Found at the Train Station || WXYZ.com | WXYZ-TV / Detroit | Detroit News, Weather, Sports and More
DETROIT (WXYZ) - They just wanted to clean up a Detroit landmark. But what some local high school students didn’t count on was putting their health at risk while they were trying to help. It was great PR for one of Detroit’s richest men: dozens of young volunteers, giving their time to clean up one of his buildings. So why weren’t they told that there was asbestos inside? The clean-up was supposed to be just the beginning for an aging landmark. Grosse Pointe billionaire Matty Maroun owns the Michigan Central Train Station and is facing mounting pressure to renovate the eyesore. So how does one of the richest men in America clean up his decaying building: with teenage volunteers. Many of the volunteers were local suburban high school students from the volunteer group Summer In The City. At the Train Station, the volunteers lifted chunks of concrete, they shoveled, and dragged the debris outside to be hauled away. They also did a lot of sweeping, and it’s the sweeping that may be a real problem. That’s because state inspectors discovered asbestos in the debris.

Kanye... WTF?

Srsly. Dick move detected. Swift reaction at MTV Video Music Awards - The Envelope - LA Times
When Kanye West jumped up during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for best female video Sunday night, put his hand over her microphone and declared that Beyonc�'s losing "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" clip was "one of the best videos of all time," he did a stupid thing. He seemed like a bully inexplicably targeting an honors student, and he further damaged his rather unstable reputation without managing to make his point clear. A couple hours later, Beyonc� received the Moonman trophy that MTV's execs had designated for her -- every superstar gets one, apparently, in this predetermined coronation of pop's latest prom court of ingenues and enduring hotties. Ever the lady, she ceded her thank-you time to Swift, who emerged seemingly quite prepared for the moment and gave a totally inconsequential speech. (She was really grateful to her video director and her fans.) It was a nice gesture of female solidarity in the face of West's boorish and, yes, macho move.

GOP Sen. Snowe urged Obama to take ‘public option off the table

The Raw Story | GOP Sen. Snowe urged Obama to take ‘public option off the table’
U.S. Senator Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine) claims to have urged the president to "take the public option off the table" due to the level of Republican opposition. Speaking to CBS News anchor Bob Schieffer on Sunday, Snowe suggested that President Barack Obama had shown "flexibility" on the key feature of his reform proposals during his State of the Union address on Wednesday, She added: "It's universally opposed by all Republicans in the Senate, and therefore there's no way to pass a plan that includes the public option. So, I think it's recognizing that, because it is a roadblock to building the kind of consensus that we need. Even [Senate Finance Committee] Chairman [Max] Bauccus has indicated, no proposal could be passed in the Senate that includes it. So, it would be best to just move forward."

Meet Your Conservative Movement

Meet Your Conservative Movement - a set on Flickr So on 9/12/09 Conservatives had planned to rally two million people on the Mall in D.C. to protest . . . something. Having a black president, I guess. Two million people were at Obama's inauguration in January in the freezing weather, so amassing two million in temperate September was to have been a message, a signal flare sent up that people were tired of . . . something. Somewhere between thirty thousand and fifty thousand showed up. This is 2% of their target. A huge failure by any measure. More failures are to be seen in their hateful, racist, ignorant signs. Click through for many more. *Thanks, David!*
