Last night at the traditional Al Smith dinner in New York City, Obama and McCain dressed up in their Sunday best and reeled off scripted joke after scripted joke.
Poking fun at themselves and their opponent, the presidential candidates also tore in to the media, including Fox News and Keith Olbermann.

Michelle Obama is one cool lady - and now, ever since reading her blog entry over at Blogher, I find her even cooler.
Michelle wrote about her experiences at a national women's conference in Chicago, Illinois in a blog post called "Our Many Hats". In truth, it reads a little like one of Barack's speeches and is mainly a post to explain to "mommybloggers" that, as ...

Britney Spears' "comeback" video, Womanizer, was released yesterday and, we have to say, it's pretty good. I wouldn't say it's the best video she's ever done, but considering all that she's been through, it seems as though she's gone through both a physical and spiritual transformation.
