Obamas to go ‘Gangnam Style’ for Christmas, Psy invited to perform

In Blog by adminLeave a Comment

Maybe. Perhaps if the South Korean rapper hadn’t already appeared on every TV show to perform “Gangnam Style,” a performance for the Obamas would be getting a bigger buzz. The U.S. Embassy is excited, at least.

Guess who’s performing for the Obamas at this year’s “Christmas in Washington” show? None other than @psy_oppa!…

— U.S. Embassy Seoul(@usembassyseoul) December 5, 2012

What says Christmas like “Gangnam Style”? Not to mention, both Psy and President Obama share the honor of being nominated for Time magazine’s Person of the Year, so the appearance is definitely a BFD. At least Psy had the sense to realize the nod was an “LOL” moment.

I’ve been chosen as a candidate on @time‘s People Of the Year of 2012 poll. PLZ VOTE EVERYBODY!!! lol…

— PSY (@psy_oppa) November 27, 2012

Correction: Twitchy originally stated that the White House was set to go “Gangnam Style” this Christmas. The Obamas will attend PSY’s “Christmas in Washington” performance, but the concert venue is the National Building Museum. This post has been updated to reflect that information.

Unattended bag near White House sends Secret Service back into action

In Blog by adminLeave a Comment

It may not be as dramatic as a fence-jumping man armed with a knife running though the East Room, but an unattended bag near the White House today gave the Secret Service a chance to redeem themselves somewhat as a competent agency.

Area in front of the White House closed, one Secret Service officer said someone left a bag unattended.

Can the Secret Service get this one right?

@ryanjreilly keeping our 1st family safe!

@ryanjreilly At least the front door is finally locked. :/

@ryanjreilly that’s not very rare, especially on weekends with lots of tourists.

— Aaron Gordon (@A_W_Gordon) October 5, 2014

@ryanjreilly umm since when did SS start getting suspicious about suspicious activities?

— Shanta Nunn-Baro (@shantabaro) October 5, 2014

So, what’s in the bag?

@ryanjreilly Then he heard it ticking & said "It's OK, must just be a clock. All clear."

— Shannon (@ShannonInVegas) October 5, 2014

@ryanjreilly Is it Ebola?

@ryanjreilly @blastedsilver it was Barack's balls. Flotus dropped the crown royal bag she keeps them in.

Oil train protesters block tracks in Seattle

In Blog by adminLeave a Comment

The last time Twitchy checked in with Seattle city council member and “proud Socialist” Kshama Sawant, she had joined a Fight for $15 protest. Today she and others are blocking railroad tracks in Seattle to protest trains carrying oil through the city.

The protesters did move aside long enough to let an Amtrak passenger train through.

Also among the small group: Jess Spear, who is running for Washington state representative:

So can we assume you’re all for Keystone XL?

PPP three-day national tracking poll gives Romney 2-point lead, 49–47

In Blog by adminLeave a Comment

Twitchy reported earlier on a somewhat bizarre post-debate flash poll by Public Policy Polling showing President Obama winning the final presidential debate but losing the votes of Independents in the process.

PPP has other numbers out tonight, though, showing the results of a three-day (pre-debate) national tracking poll. In the poll, Mitt Romney leads nationally 49-47, with a D+6 sample. The survey also shows that 51 percent disapprove of the job President Obama is doing as compared to 45 percent who approve. Romney earns a 50 percent favorable rating to 45 percent unfavorable.

‘Damn perfectly stated!’ Kennedy defines ‘inequality’ as only she can

In Blog by adminLeave a Comment

The ex-MTV VJ is continuing to bring it both on Fox Business and via Twitter. She recently scored with her definition of “inequality”:


Whiners had to whine, natch.

Oh noes! Not an unfollow!

Sigh. Well, kudos for helping to prove Kennedy’s point!

Others loved the definition.

Bingo. Equal opportunity does not magically guarantee effortless equal results.

This Twitter user offers up a fix for income “inequality””

Case closed! And an exit suggestion for Kennedy:

‘She’s my date!’ Joe Biden not into sharing Julia Louis-Dreyfus [pics]

In Blog by adminLeave a Comment

If you need any more evidence that this administration is more celebrity than it is presidential, the state dinner for French President Francois Hollande will do. “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus had the dubious honor of babysitting crazy Uncle Joe Biden, who occasionally pretends to be Vice President.

That’s when Joe got territorial.

The administration in a nutshell:


Just one heartbeat away from the presidency …


Obama to Hollande: ‘As president, I can do whatever I want’

Barack Obama: ‘I’m not emperor of the United States’
