    I hope this isn’t true, but if it is–well, all I can say is money brings out a person’t true character. Those who suddenly get a lot and then turn their back on their people in order to keep their tax loopholes open are gaping a-holes

    i thought she was kidding…..

    i will say, however, that Eva Longoria (whom i previously didn’t really know jack s**t about) impressed the heck outta me with her speech at DNC.

    “The Eva Longoria who makes movies doesn’t need a tax break. The Eva Longoria who used to flip burgers at wendy’s needs the tax break”

    Hey Andy, is that a note of disapproval for the president’s willingness to weigh in? Because I think he’s actually been disappointingly reticent on culture/media products made by black Americans (despite his apparent familiarity, as revealed by these occasional flashes). Personally, I’d love to see him let his guard down and discuss his tastes, because it might help further improve some black Americans’ feelings of the legitimacy of our government. For a more thorough discussion of what a black man in the White House could mean for race and why it hasn’t seemed to fulfill that potential so far, see Ta-Nehisi Coates’ excellent piece in this month’s Atlantic.

    She tweeted this earlier today: “Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do… *sends love & support* @BarackObama”

    I think Andys comment was literal, meaning the president can weigh in on just about anything, be it foreign affairs or pop culture.
