It’s a 5 piece, 6″-tall Obama Family Nesting Doll set, that’s what! (Huh?!). For $48.00, you could be the proud owner of these Obama Matryoshka dolls, complete with …


Today marks one hundred days of moving forward →

Without getting “too into it,” I wanted to take a brief moment to reflect on President Obama’s first 100 days (a silly measure of success, @ best). Considering the enormous challenges he has inherited, and while I may not love each and every decision he and his administration have made up until this point, I …

Happy President’s Day! from Marvel?

Following on the heels of its recent super successful issue of Spider-Man featuring President Obama (already in its fifth printing), Marvel has released a special online-only Spider-Man comic featuring Abe Lincoln in honor of our 16th President’s 200th birthday.

Embedded video from CNN Video

Following last year’s record-setting coverage of the 2008 Election and this year’s 2009 Inauguration, CNN remains at the top of its game, never seeming to miss a beat. Take this mornings headline – President Obama bumps his head – for example. Sounded like it might be serious and important news …

White House tech: At least the TV looks decent

The 2009 Inauguration (purple) ticket holder disaster

I’ve received a number of texts/calls/emails from friends/family across the country wondering how my (much-hyped) Inauguration experience turned out earlier today. Well, to put it bluntly – extremely disappointing.
