Should we be concerned that this voting machine in Pennsylvania seems to be altering votes? This morning a man from Pennsylvania uploaded a video of a defective machine that wouldn’t allow him to select Barack Obama. Every time he tried to select the Democrat option it would highlight Mitt Romney instead.
I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney’s name and started tapping very closely together to find the ‘active areas’. From the top of Romney’s button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama’s name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein’s button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.
Katy Perry — Obama
Every election there are always a few celebrities that love to endorse their chosen presidential candidate to the world, in an attempt to sway your vote. Take Katy Perry for instance, who literally wears her political leanings on her sleeve. Perry wore this “Forward” dress in support of Obama on Saturday, at a political rally in Milwaukee. “Forward” of course, is the slogan of Obama’s campaign.
Will Ferrell — Obama
Will Ferrell doesn’t necessarily care who you vote for (Obama… Obama), he just wants you to vote in this election. He’ll eat garbage, hair or underpants. He’ll even punch himself in the face. He wraps it up by encouraging one candidate in particular: ”Vote Obama! It’s a slam dunk!”
Mr. Burns — Romney
The Simpson’s resident Republican Mr. Burns put out a special message in support of Mitt Romney. Unfortunately his endorsement is probably unwanted considering he’s an antagonist on the show. Gotta love Fox ripping on Romney.
Chris Rock — Obama
Comedian Chris Rock targeted a special message to undecided voters of the caucasian variety on JimmyKimmelLive. “In times like these, you need a white president you can trust and that white president’s name is Barack Obama,” he says. The facts: for the first two thirds of his life he was known as Barry (such a white name apparently) and his parents were so white they had to wear sunglasses so they wouldn’t hurt each others eyes. Still don’t believe him? Obama is still whiter than Snooki.
Beyonce — Obama Read more…
In light of current events and some rather heated debates, we wanted to get Diplo’s opinion on a serious issue. Which presidential candidate would he like to get high with and on what drug? We also go further down the rabbit hole to discuss the effects of illicit substances on the creative process. Do drugs really make you a better producer or songwriter? Are musicians really expanding their creative horizons or just getting high?
1. Who sucks the most?
That’s um… really mean, but a really interesting voting system.
That’s the spirit, Mr. Wahlberg. I wonder if he knew that his placement of the pumpkins was just too perfect.
3. Scarlett Johanson faceplants (but it’s fake)
Any ScarJo fangirls can relax, this faceplant was intentional for a movie!
4. Hungry bird
Apparently a guy wanted to feed his parrot, and then found said parrot already feasting in the box. I just really hope the little guy is able to breath. He seems to be inhaling those little fruits and nuts.
There are too many amazing things about this photo. First, the complete and utter oblivion of the woman in this photo. Second, the middle child’s face. Third the backhanded slap that was the result of the complete fail. Though the pain must have been horrible, this captured a funny moment for the family.
I’m definitely having nightmares tonight. I don’t know what’s creepier — Mitt Romney’s auto-tuned voice, or the sight of these singing audience members. This beautiful ballad called “Town Hall Debate Songified” shows President Obama and Mitt Romney duking it out for presidency — but this time, with some pizazz. The geniuses of The Gregory Brothers songify the debate and basically sum up the evening in a catchy and slightly weird three minutes. I’m probably going to be humming this tune all day.
The last drinking game we participated in was the Barack Obama/ Mitt Romney sh*t show so you had to expect it would follow suite with a Paul Ryan / Joe Biden drinking game. I recommend the champions of the previous battle (last two standing) take on this round for the win.
Tonight is the night to get crunk with the president. We found this hilarious 2012 presidential debate drinking game that challenges debate-goers to chug their political woes away tonight. First you must make the life-altering decision: Obama or Romney?
Once you’ve chosen
who you’re voting for who you’re getting smashed with, pay close attention to what each candidate says in their speech. Romney says he’s for the 100%? Shots. Obama utters the words “auto bailout?” Shots. If either candidate mentions George W. Bush, have a beer. Or three.
The best part is that the winner might look a little something like this total boss:
Here are some prizes we think might be appropriate for the champions of this game:
