Way to go William. I always pretend like it was an accident as well. There's no such thing as bad publicity:
Star Trek legend William Shatner was left nursing a bruised ego when his trousers fell down during an airport security check in front of dozens of fellow travellers.
The actor was queuing at Los Angeles International Airport to catch a flight to South Africa when he was singled out for a search by officials.
He had decided to wear loose-fitting clothing for the journey and did not have a belt holding his pants up - and he was left red-faced when they fell down, exposing his underwear....

While his wife lobbies against condiments and Happy Meals, Obama has quietly banned knives and forks at his campaign events. Is eating tofu with our hands the progressive endgame?
I resent the advice from the First Nutritionist but her husband's silverware fears don't bother me. Why? Well the fork restrictions only apply to events where the President is speaking. I'm usually busy that day.
And think about it. No knives. No forks. That can only mean one thing:

I love it when the Scientists implicate something other than my favorite foods in Causing Bad Stuff (Alzheimer's this time):
A study at the University of Kuopio in Finland has found that the long-term effects of stress may be the biggest cause of the disease.
When stressed, our blood pressure rises as our heart beats faster and levels of the hormone cortisol in the bloodstream also increase.
Experts believe once cortisol enters the brain it starts to kill off cells there, leading to Alzheimer’s.
So, what to do? Only one thing to do:

You may need to recalibrate the creepy meter after watching this one.
What's it mean? What's its purpose? Is this just guilt prep for the next episode of Hardball?
BTW- This "you don't disagree with his policies, you disagree with his race" Obama theme is something of a loser when you consider that he got a majority of votes in the last election. We elected him. Have we somehow become racist since then?

From the Philly Post:
Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger.
I switched the portrait to Obama (you wouldn't believe how hard to find a portrait of him that doesn't glow) to see if it became any more classy -- nope, it still comes across as crude.
Perceptive readers of AWL will have noticed that my support for the President has slipped to something less than 100%. But still, no way does this composite photo look kosher to me. So maybe it's an absolute: regardless the of target, two handed flip-offs in the White House lack elegance.
Still I'm sure the President appreciates the publicity. Isn't that what they say? "All publicity is good publicity." Whether it's yahoos flipping off former Presidents, or congressional probes finding out you sent guns to Mexico in hopes of causing enough death and mayhem to change gun laws here, it's all good. Right?
Update: that's Zoe Strauss in the picture, how proud her mother must be.

Found this one.
Man it's hot out there. It's enough to combust Hope and Change, oh wait, we're safe because there never was any Hope and what Change there was needs burning.
I know it might sound like I just tied a simple weather observation in knots in order to say something bad about the President, but I assure you that's not the case. I support the President 100% and if he weren't a hopeless incompetent, I'd probably consider voting for him. It's not his fault that he has no experience, work ethic, economic understanding, or character. He's an excellent golfer and he's got fantastic teeth. If we ever need a president who excels in those areas, we know who to call.

I don't know about you but I get the whiff of snobbery in Joe Biden's refutation of blue colularity in his family tree. Too bad for you Joe. If you'd kept your mouth shut, you might have have benefited from the erroneous connection to the salt of the earth.
about the title, "If My Collar Were Any Bluer, It'd Be Black," I know that's not exactly true, but "If My Collar Were Any Bluer, It'd Be That Really Really Extra Blue Hue," was too long.

This is what I do when I'm sick. Just start playing. We don't need no stinkin instructions.
I hate to say, they employ the trick I fall for every time: if you win they go straight to a dialog box with your score; when you click "OK (I suppose I'm awesome)" they go straight into a new game. And I'm always like, "Well, since you went to the trouble of setting it up again, I suppose just one more..."
They play me like a fiddle.

Duck song accomplished. I'm still battling a cold that would make Bruce Willis whimper. But do you like the way I'm not complaining? Even though I've got sniffles, a headache, and could possibly cough off my entire head at any moment? Yeah, well, I'm tough like that.

Here I am, dragging myself from my sick-couch, and ignoring the slings and arrows of outrageous rhinovirus, powering past the very definite tickle in my throat, and urge to sneeze, just to bring you fashion models falling down.
I suspect these poor women have been drugged. Obviously someone has decided to tap into what Freud called "our desire to witness the humiliation of those prettier than us." (what the Germans call Modemodellarschfallen)
h/t: I have seen...

I'm still sick so I'll let Charles speak for me:
You know what I see at international conferences like the G-20? I see dozens of powerful leaders all looking out for the best interests of their respective countries. Plus Barack. He's embarrassed by his country. He's there for the fine dining and bright lights. He's not there for us.
Of course the Russians are ignoring us. We are impotent. The "reset and everyone will like us" fairy tale was never going to work.

Here it was this morning, I thought I slept too late and missed the announcement that the private sector was doing fine. Recovery Friday and I was out of the loop.
Then, sadly, I hear the President has walked it back.
Sad face. But I'll tell you what, I'm getting up early tomorrow so that I can enjoy it should we temporally recover again. I want to enjoy it a little before the False Alarm announcement goes out.

Who could be leaking classified material from the White House? And where is Nancy Drew when you need her? We just don't know who it could possibly be.
From the Hill:
The Democratic chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday expressed worry that leaks to the press about a cyberattack authorized by the Obama administration on Iran could lead to a counterattack on the United States.
“This is like an avalanche. It is very detrimental and candidly, I found it very concerning,” Feinstein told reporters Tuesday. “There’s no question that this kind of thing hurts our country.”
Several Democrats noted the Iranian leak is just the latest in a series of media reports about classified U.S. anti-terrorism activity.
“A number of those leaks, and others in the last months about drone activities and other activities are frankly all against national security interests,” said Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.
“I think they’re dangerous, damaging, and whoever is doing that is not acting in the interest of the United States of America.”
Yup, it's sure a mystery. A mystery wrapped in an enigma, with puzzling syrup, and wearing an inscrutable hat.
