ELECTION 2012

A week away from the first of the presidential debates and good news for the Obama campaign as the President has opened up big leads in several swing states. What's behind the recent Obama surge? Jon Stewart says Obama has Romney himself to thank

How is Romney trying to turn the tide? By portraying himself as a compassionate conservative.

GAY FUN

Gay slang can be a little confusing, lucky for twin british YouTube sensations Jack and Finn there is Tyler Oakley to teach them. Aren't the twins just the cutest things you've ever seen?

Speaking of gays and internet videos, check out episode 5 of "The Outs", a web series about gay life in New York City.

ENTERTAINMENT

Are you an Adam Lambert fan? Check out his performance last night at a benefit for Marriage Equality in Maryland. He also had some pretty powerful words about Maryland's referendum on the state's Civil Marriage Protection Act. 

Madonna made waves yesterday when she said Obama was a Black Muslim. Now she says she was being ironic. Not totally sure she knows what that means. Also take a listen to Rihanna's new single "Diamonds"!

  4. If the twins have nice bodies, Bruce Weber will be all over them. He loves to shoot hot twins.

  5. Dear Sam: Please provide better word choices than "ironic." Thanks for the tutorial. I'm sure Madonna thanks you as well.

  6. That felt like the longest wait ever for this next episode of The Outs. Luckily, Where The Bears Are releases every Thursday. I'm really enjoying both web series! Thanks for introducing them to me.
