Quote of the Day

Posted by Bossip Staff

The hottest chick in the game, Michelle Obama, discusses her husband, Senator Barack Obama last night at the first day of the Democratic Convention in Denver:

“He was raised by grandparents who were working-class folks, just like my parents, and by a single mother who struggled to pay the bills, just like we did. And like my family, they scrimped and saved so that he could have opportunities they never had for themselves,” she said.

“And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values. Like you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do. That you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them.”

That is exactly what we need in the office, someone who is human just like the rest of us. Not like that shady ass Bush legacy. YES WE CAN!!!

Spike Lee: “Everyone’s Biracial”

Posted by Bossip Staff

Spike Lee sticks up for Barack in regards to some people saying he isn’t black enough:

“First, I go by the ‘one-drop rule,’” he said in Denver, where he has come to see firsthand his man accept the Democratic nomination for President. “One drop [of black blood], and you’re black. The truth is, every African-American is biracial. Go back far enough, and you’ll find the massah was in the slave quarters. You can’t be black and go to Harvard Law School? You can’t be black and be articulate?”

Lee also “respectfully disagrees” with Jesse Jackson, who threatened to castrate Obama for publicly chastising missing black fathers. “You can’t hide that stuff,” Lee told us. “Single-parent households, high-school dropouts. The statistics are there for everybody to see. We have to confront that head-on. Don’t be like the New England Patriots – think that you just have to show up,” he preached. “The Republicans are going to try all kinds of hijinks. Shenanigans. Trickery. Flimflam. They’ll try to hornswoggle us, bamboozle us. It’s not a done deal!”

Obama Makes The Smart Move

Posted by Bossip Staff

It was leaked to the press late last night that Obama picked Senator Joseph Biden as his VP running mate. Although nothing to get excited about, we think this is a smart move.

He gets a little cred with older white folks and makes his run for the Whitehouse look less risky by selecting a “seasoned” politician with a strong background in international affairs.

Now that this is over, it’s time to go hard and push that shady McCain’s wig back.

Tyra’s Two Cents

Posted by Bossip Staff

Tyra Banks on Barack Obama:

“When Barack won the nomination, I just started bawling,” confesses Tyra. “I started calling all these people, and everybody was talking to me like I was crazy. They’re like, ‘Well, he hasn’t won yet,’ but I’m like, ‘Yes, he has, because he’s gotten this far.’ I think he gives everybody so much hope. What gives me tears is if Barack Obama wins, kids are going to say a black man can be President too.”

John Edwards: I Hit But That Lil’ Nicca Ain’t Mine

Posted by Bossip Staff

He Hit That, SMH

John Edwards recently admitted to creepin’ on his wife but denied her baby is his. Her fam wants him to take a paternity test:

“Two years ago I made a very serious mistake, a mistake that I am responsible for and no one else. In 2006, I told Elizabeth about the mistake, asked her for her forgiveness, asked God for his forgiveness. And we have kept this within our family since that time.”

What other things are these shady politicians lying about? Doesn’t she look a little “off”?

Ho Sit Down

Posted by Bossip Staff

We knew some crazy motherfu*ker would try to pull this ish:

A man was being held in Florida on Thursday on charges he told classmates at a training seminar that he would kill Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama if he is elected, according to a law enforcement official and court documents. The threats came just days before Obama was scheduled to visit Florida and were made by a person discovered to have ammunition, a handgun and other weapons, authorities said. An affidavit filed by a Secret Service agent in U.S. District Court claims that Raymond Hunter Geisel, of Marathon, Florida, threatened to “kill, kidnap and cause bodily harm upon a major candidate for president of the United States, that is, Senator Barack Obama.”

A search of Geisel’s vehicle and a hotel room in Miami, where Geisel was attending a bail bondsman training class, found a 9-mm handgun, ammunition that included armor-piercing and rifle bullets, police-style emergency lights, body armor, a machete and two canisters of tear gas, among other military-style items, according to the document. Agents say that classmates of Geisel reported that, between July 25-28, Geisel used a racial slur toward Obama and said “if he gets elected, I’ll assassinate him myself.”

This pussy doesn’t have the heart, fu*k that. YES WE CAN!!!

Still The Hottest Chick in The Game

Posted by Bossip Staff

Michelle Obama is the topic of discussion in Ebony Magazine’s September issue, due to hit stands on August 12th. Get a sneak peek of the exclusive interview:

On her style…

“I do think what you wear is a reflection of who you are. I love to look glamorous when there’s a wonderful, purposeful event that is appropriate. But when I’m in Iowa campaigning with the girls, I am in Gap shorts and a T- shirt.”

On being a mom…

“My first job in all honesty is going to continue to be mom-in-chief,” she says, “making sure that in this transition, which will be even more of a transition for the girls…that they are settled and that they know they will continue to be the center of our universe.”

On being married to Barack…

“Barack and I—as partners, as friends and as lovers—we accessorize each other in many ways,” she said. “The best thing I love having on me is Barack on my arm and vice versa, whether it’s having him standing there smiling at me, or watching him mesmerize a crowd or talk to some seniors in a senior center.”

Michelle continues to hold it down with elegance and the utmost class. She’s top notch First Lady material.

Check out more pics of the regal family. The Obama’s are featured in the upcoming issue of Essence Magazine.

Ludacris and His Big Mouth

Posted by Bossip Staff

Ludacris has received some heavy criticism over the lyrics of his new political track, “Politics: Obama is Here.” Unfortunately, Obama is catching some heat in the process:

Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama has condemned an endorsement song from Ludacris, in which the Atlanta MC criticizes rivals Hillary Clinton and John McCain.

The song “Politics: Obama Is Here” contains celebratory bars on Obama’s success (“The first is destined and it’s meant to be”), but turns venomous when Obama’s rivals are addressed.

Ludacris references the bitter Democratic primary battle by stating “Hillary hated on you/So that b**ch is irrelevant.”

Regarding Republican nominee John McCain, the rapper rhymes:

“McCain don’t belong in ANY chair unless he’s paralyzed/ Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped/ Ball up all of his speeches and I throw ‘em like candy wrap.”

Through his campaign team, Senator Obama released a statement condemning the song as offensive and typical of much of Hip-Hop’s current lyrical content. “As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to,” explained spokesman Bill Burton. “This song is not only outrageously offensive to Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator McCain, and President Bush, it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual he should be ashamed of these lyrics.” Continue »

Long Overdue

Posted by Bossip Staff

The House of Representatives is set to pass a resolution apologizing to African-Americans for slavery and the era of Jim Crow:

The nonbinding resolution, which is expected to pass, was introduced by Rep. Steve Cohen, a white lawmaker who represents a majority black district in Memphis, Tennessee. While many states have apologized for slavery, it will be first time a branch of the federal government will apologize for slavery if the resolution passes, an aide to Cohen said.

By passing the resolution, the House would also acknowledge the “injustice, cruelty, brutality and inhumanity of slavery and Jim Crow.” Continue »

The Obamas are the headliners of the latest issue of People Magazine where they offer a rare look inside their family life. And we’ve included some pics of this dude named Luis Lay who is considered to be Germany’s official Barack Obama impersonator. We really don’t see the resemblance. They must really think we all look alike over there. SMH.

Jesse’s Former Side Jawn Speaks Out

Posted by Bossip Staff

Messy Jesse’s former mistress shares her theory with the National Enquirer on why he wants to “cut Obama’s nuts off:”

Karin Stanford, who has a 9 year daughter with Rev Jackson [the Rev and Mrs. Jackson have been married for 46 years. Do the math], says the good Rev made the crack about Obama because he feels guilty about the relationship he has with his love child. The hot mic conversation where Jesse was caught saying he wanted to “cut Barack’s nuts out” for “talking down to black people” was in reference to a speech Barack made chastising absentee African-American fathers for not taking responsibility for their children.
