    When I had a chance, I took a look at some of the beautiful rooms in the White House; I was so excited just to be there. When I looked around, I could feel all the history of the place and I felt like I was having flashbacks into history just by being in these rooms. It was thrilling! When I met President Obama, he shook my hand and told me that he was a big fan of mine. Wow! This made me feel so humbled and honored. I was practically speechless and just mumbled to him that it was...

    When I interviewed Eric Wisemen, CEO of VF Corp, at the ICR Xchange retail conference in Orange County, I asked him if it was difficult for one of his company's brands, Wrangler, to stand by Brett Favre after the football legend's sexting scandal. "Brett's been terrific for our brand for a long period of time. He speaks to the Wrangler consumer," Wiseman told me, before adding, "We're obviously figuring out where to go from here." He might want to read a study by Ace Metrix which suggests that celebrity endorsements can do more harm than good. "Our study of more...

    Is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid secretly a Lady Gaga superfan? On Saturday, Reid twice messaged the pop star on Twitter — shortly before the Senate voted to repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy banning gays from serving openly in the military and immediately after. In fact, his first Twitter message after the vote was to Gaga, who had previously lobbied him and other senators via Twitter to overturn the controversial policy. "We did it! DADT is a thing of the past," Reid wrote to Gaga.

    Unwed mother Bristol Palin and noted smoosh-master Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino want you to PBYP, which is apparently reality TV acronym talk for "Pause Before You Play." As in, one should PBYP before you decide you're DTF*. In case you have neither the time nor the patience to watch, this initial exchange pretty much sums up the level of discourse:The Situation: Excuse me miss, but have you ever had a situation with the official Situation? Bristol Palin: Excuse me, Sitch? The Situation: Oh snap! B. Palin!
  • Barack Obama's dumb 'Daily Show' Jon Stewart appearance and the President's diminishing brand

    10/27/2010 9:52:00 AM PDT · by LottieDah · 30 replies
    President Barack Obama should make the most of his "Daily Show" appearance on Wednesday night - charming the pants off Jon Stewart and the crowd, as he did when he showed up there two years ago. It's a terrific show, Stewart is a great interviewer and Obama makes good television. Then, the President should cancel all future trivial media appearances. While they may have kept him personally popular, in broad terms they've degraded the Obama brand. Obama's handlers were supposed to be smarter than this. They were supposed to use his celebrity strategically to advance his agenda. Instead, they've been...

    “We are the people They couldn’t figure out We are the people Our parents warned us about”I once flew from Chicago to Hartford seated next to someone who services Hammond organs and did so for some big name bands. He mentioned one which happened to be a long time favorite and told me that they occasionally came by the shop in a city outside of Hartford. “Man, I’d love to be there one time and meet them” I said to my neighbor. He just shook his head. I looked at him quizzically for a moment and then I thought I...

Big-mouth Hollywood actor Val Kilmer is finding that out in New Mexico, where a number of residents are upset over incendiary remarks the Hollywood pretty boy has made over the years about veterans and rural life in northern New Mexico.
