Josh Brolin as George W. Bush
If you’ve been tooling around The Drudge Report at all the last couple of days, you may have noticed near the top, a handful of links to advance previews of Oliver Stone’s latest W., his third effort at biopic-ing an American president, and the only one to have received Mr. Stone’s esteemed treatment while its subject is still in office (the first two in his triptych were JFK (1991) and Nixon (1995).  The first review came from Variety‘s Todd McCarthy; the next day, The Hollywood Reporter was added to the list.

John McCain giving the thumbs up

If Republican Presidential candidate John McCain losses the election, he deserves it. I know his new “gloves-off” approach is showing an effect, but I think it’s too late. I’ve been disappointed in McCain the last few weeks.

I thought he showed good leadership by suspending his campaign and going to Washington to be a Senator, the job we pay him to do. I thought he showed good judgment by not supporting the original bailout plan, but it all went downhill from there.

In a recent interview with FOX News, Governor Sarah Palin admitted she felt a bit “annoyed” during her criticized sit-down with Katie Couric. She told reporter Carl Cameron that Couric missed many opportunities “to ask what a V.P. candidate stands for.”

So the question is: Could Palin have handled herself differently if that discussion was conducted by a different person? Let’s see how she might have fared with Fargo‘s Police Chief Marge Gunderson (actress Frances McDormand) below:

Thanks to the wonders of the Internets, even those who weren’t able to catch the debates when they aired live (as well as those who don’t own s) can still catch up on what exactly was said, without having to listen to the opinions of pundits and those in the media who may try to spin things.

We’ve got both of the dates that have happened thus far here for you. Above, the Vice Presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin, originally from October 2. After the break we’ve got the first Presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain. That one took place on September 26 from the University of Mississippi in Oxford.

No matter who you’re voting for in this year’s election, you should be able to trust journalists, and the news they’re reporting to you. Almost 70 percent of people polled think the media is trying to help Barack Obama win. Here’s another example of media bias.

An AP report on AOL wrote Sarah Palin Says Obama Pals With Terrorist.  The article goes on to say, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Saturday accused Presidential candidate Barack Obama of “palling around with terrorists” because of an old association with a former ‘60s radical, stepping up an effort to portray Barack Obama as unacceptable to American voters.

Okay, I get the message… I need to vote.  Considering that I already plan to vote as I have every single time when I’ve HAD TO (yes, I say it like my life depends on it because it sort of does), I can totally ignore the depth behind the surface of this video and totally just focus on the facade.  And that facade is HOT!  Seriously, you have Jessica Alba and a bubbly Hayden Panettiere (she’s legal now, right?) promoting A MUZZLE!  I’m not saying I’m into S&M or anything like that (but check out the website for this - TheMuzzler.com), nor do I approve of the symbolic “a girl should just look pretty and not speak” (remember, I’m not about depth in this post), but these two can make anything look HOT!

Have I emphasized the hotness of this yet?

In all seriousness, I can appreciate it when people, whoever they are, can go against the grain and make fun of themselves to whatever degree.  And while Alba and Panettiere do it well, in the end, it really is a funny video with a very strong message for people, especially the youth, to go out there and vote.  SO young people, please register and vote.  Damn, I guess I lied about not looking for the depth in this video.

I just figured that your life depended on voting as well.

What better way to start a politics blog other than to urge all of you to vote.  And who better to do it than the “gods” of our society - celebrities.  Usually, the more outspoken celebs lean towards the left, but this video is a non-partisan pitch for the youth to register and use their power to elect the next President of the United States of America.  In the video you will see (in alphabetical order): Amy Adams, will.i.am, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Bacon, Halle Berry, Kate Bosworth, Kevin Connolly, Courteney Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Jonah Hill, Dustin Hoffman, Anthony Kiedis, Ashton Kutcher, Adam Levine, Laura Linney, Eva Longoria, Tobey Maguire, Demi Moore, Natalie Portman, Giovanni Ribisi, Ethan Suplee, Kyra Sedgwick, Michelle Trachtenberg, Usher, and Forest Whitaker.  Check it out and get off your butts!  Registration deadlines for some states are only a day or two away!  Let’s make a difference.

In the latest edition of his Diddy Vlog (this would apparently be #24, if we want to be exact), hip hop mogul Diddy seems to have resorted to lunacy in his attempts to get his fans to get out there to register and vote this November. As you’ll see in the video, Diddy is scared. The culprit? Sarah Palin. Hey, I’m as scared of her as the next guy, but at the very least, I can articulate why I’m scared. It would have been nice if Diddy would have went that extra mile to actually put a message out there.

In the video, he does show that clip of Sarah Palin talking with Katie Couric about which magazines and newspapers she reads to keep up with everything going on - you know, the one where Sarah couldn’t name one single source? But still, that isn’t enough. At least at the end he throws out the call to action. Get out there and vote, peeps.
