After McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin as VP and the Republican National Convention, John McCain’s numbers went up six percent, mostly because he gained a TON of support from independent voters, and even won over quite a few Democrats.
Here’s my theory: Before the Sarah Palin nonsense, Barack Obama’s campaign had all the hype, all the glamor, all the excitement. Sarah Palin brings those things to the McCain campaign, which had previously been a non-story about an old white dude who’s run for this office countless times before. The convention also gave the campaign numerous chances to showcase the adorable Palin kids and the gorgeous McCain women.
Americans want to understand and care about the issues, sure, but, more than that, they want EXCITEMENT and BEAUTY.
Now the McCain camp can deliver those things. I’m beginning to think this Sarah Palin thing might have been secretly a brilliant move on McCain’s part. Never overestimate the intelligence of the American voter!
Did you change your mind about McCain after the RNC? If so, why?

Usher and his shim of a wife, Tameka Foster, are expecting another kiddo, one of his close friends confirms.
The couple already have one son, Usher Raymond V (nicknamed “Cinco”), born in November 2007.
I guess I should be excited for the couple, but I really hate this chick he’s married to. I think she’s butt-ugly and all I hear is what a diva bitch she is. I’m still bitter on behalf of Chilli.

The freshman football team at LA’s exclusive Harvard-Westlake school just got a whole lot cooler than varsity.
Ashton Kutcher is their new assistant coach.
And, no, it’s not for a role. “I asked him why he wanted to coach,” said the head coach of the team about Ashton’s interview process. “He said he’s a dad, he has three daughters, and none of them are into sports. He loves football, and he said heâ€™d always wanted to coach.”
Ashton will attend practice five days a week and receive a salary for the gig. I just think this is funny because I bet there were a handful of frosh dudes who made the varsity or JV teams and acted like they were the fucking coolest thing ever because of it and now the guys they were being dicks to are all like, “Yeah, dude, enjoy playing on JV. I’ll be there next year. This year, though, I’m just gonna enjoy getting head from every chick in school because Ashton Kutcher is my fucking football coach. Peace.”
And don’t waste your time scrutinizing every inch of the team’s website for Ashton’s contact info or naked locker room photos — neither is there. I already looked. A lot.

Do you know why I love you guys?
Well, many reasons, but one of them is that, no matter how many pictures of Lindsay Lohan I run, I get emails from you guys, like, “Can you run more photos of Lindsay Lohan?”
This is why we get along so well, you guys.
I’d say the best argument for Ali Lohan’s tits being real are these awesome side boob shots of La Lohan from the VMAs. These things are real and they are glorious, people. These girls are just genetically inclined to have phenomenal hooters, and you gotta respect that. I’m a little jealous of Samantha Ronson right now, I gotta admit.
I also like these shots because it makes it really obvious where Lindsay’s real hair ends and her extensions begin. See, she may have killer tits naturally, but the hair is fake. Doesn’t that make you feel just a little bit better about yourself?

Apparently all the buzz at New York Fashion Week is about Victoria Beckham’s Pret a Porter dress collection.
Says the Style.com review:
Every one of them could’ve been pulled from Beckham’s own closet. The silhouette is beyond body-conscious, ultra-fitted from shoulder line to below the knee, with special seams along the derriere and torso to ensure against flat rear ends and busts, respectively. And each comes with woman-friendly details like a rose-gold back zipper (“so you don’t have to dive into it and mess your hair and makeup”) and a removable grosgrain ribbon lining the waist (“for posture”). If the collection owes a debt to anyone, it’s Roland Mouret, whose Galaxy dress gave curves to even the most skeletal of celebrities, or maybe Dolce & Gabbana. But Beckham denies the inspiration. “This has been a lifetime in the making,” she said, adding that she’s been wearing the best designers in the world for about as long. And she’s not interested in making an It dress. “I don’t want to make dresses that will date. I’ve always been about clever buying.” The dresses will range from $1,500 to $3,600.
Um, since I don’t have anything remotely close to $1500 to spend on a freakin’ dress, I’m just going to sit here and obsess over how the ultra-thin blonde model they’ve used here has one of those little bellies like I have, and they’re not airbrushing it out. That makes me really happy. See, I’m just like her! No matter how thin I get — and I am NOT as thin as this model — I still have my little Buddha belly. Just like the gorgeous model for Victoria Beckham’s line of ridiculously upscale dresses!
Buddha belly power!!!!
