President Obama Is Maybe Cool With You Tokin' Up, For Your 'Health'
- If the President Barry H. Bamz (D-Choom Gang) thinks medical marijuana might be good for you, who are we to argue?
CNN's chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, a vocal supporter of the legalization of medical marijuana, asks Obama in the documentary ["WEED 3"]if he supports the goals of a historic Senate bill introduced in March that seeks to make several major changes in federal law, including drastically reducing the federal government's ability to crack down on state-legal medical marijuana programs, encouraging more research into the plant and reclassifying marijuana as a less dangerous drug.
"You know, I think I'd have to take a look at the details," Obama began in response, "but I'm on record as saying that not only do I think carefully prescribed medical use of marijuana may in fact be appropriate and we should follow the science as opposed to ideology on this issue, but I'm also on record as saying that the more we treat some of these issues related to drug abuse from a public health model and not just from an incarceration model, the better off we're going to be."
- Maureen Dowd blah-blah-blah'd all over herself in the New York Times about two of her favorite things to love and to hate, respectively: her own opinion and Hillary Clinton.
Hillary saw the foolishness of acting like a masculine woman defending the Iraq invasion after she fell behind to a feminized man denouncing it. After losing Iowa and watching New Hampshire slip away to the tyro, Barack Obama, Hillary cracked. She misted up, talking to a group of voters in New Hampshire when a woman asked her how she kept going, while staying “upbeat and so wonderful.” [...]
Hillary always overcorrects. Now she has zagged too far in the opposite direction, presenting herself as a sweet, docile granny in a Scooby van, so self-effacing she made only a cameo in her own gauzy, demographically pandering presidential campaign announcement video and mentioned no issues on her campaign’s website. [...]
Let’s hope that the hokey Chipotle Granny will give way to the cool Tumblr Chick in time to teach her Republican rivals — who are coming after her with every condescending, misogynist, distorted thing they’ve got — that bitch is still the new black.

Shipping wars have become ubiquitous in television now. If two characters so much as exchange eye contact, you better believe they will have an obnoxious mash-up of their names and a hundred fanfictions dedicated to the romantic undertones in said eye contact. Oh, and don’t forget the wars rabid fans get into as they argue whose ship is the best and should definitely be “endgame.”
I’m not a particularly passionate shipper unless you count my undying devotion for #TeamJaFael in my Jane the Virgin recaps, but when I think about it, I always did have favorite couples I rooted for as a kid. Here are my top 10 ships growing up.
- Uh, sure, OK:
Poland's Foreign Ministry urgently summoned U.S. Ambassador Stephen Mull on Sunday to "protest and demand an apology," saying the head of the FBI suggested that Poles were accomplices in the Holocaust.
FBI director James Comey made the remarks in an article about the need to educate about the Holocaust that was published by The Washington Post on Thursday. It was adapted from a speech he gave Wednesday at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
In the article, Comey said, "In their minds, the murderers and accomplices of Germany, and Poland, and Hungary, and so many, many other places didn't do something evil. They convinced themselves it was the right thing to do, the thing they had to do." [...]
Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz said Comey's words were "unacceptable" in Poland.
