Happy Birthday, Barack Obama!

Obama has endured a ton of criticism in his presidency. While I proudly voted for him in 2008, I will freely admit that I feel he's dropped the ball on important issues. That said, today is his birthday, and I'd like to take a moment to point out some of the great things he has done in the last 2.5 years.

Dude’s List: 11 Guys That Guys Crush On

Even the guys you crush on get guy crushes. It’s just a different kind of crushing. We don’t necessarily want to be with them, we mostly want to be them. Just a preference. A lot of us can admit when a guy’s hot. We can feel the animal magnetism. We can be charmed by his charisma or attracted by his genius. Same as you.

Politicians Every College Student Should Know

Thanks to all the technology that’s out today, I always have the latest information. Facebook events spread the word about the parties, Twitter feeds fill my day with celebrity updates, and text messages make it easy to whisper gossip directly to anyone’s inbox. But all that is just about my world. Who are the people I should know, the ones who are really making the news?

Couples That Make Us Love Love

So let's be real, we all cried a little bit when we found out Brad and Jen were splitting, and some of us are still sticking pins in our Angelina Jolie voodoo dolls not over it. In fact, thanks to our obsession with celebrities, faux-lebrities and TV/movies, we often find ourselves more invested in Hollywood/fictional couples than we do in our own relationships.

The 50 Most Popular Men on the Web (According to Google) 2010

How many times a week a day do you Google yourself? An embarrassing amount, right? Almost as embarrassing as the amount of time I spend diagnosing myself with fatal diseases on WebMD. But when we're not googling our own name and Facebook stalking our frenemies, we're googling (and ogling) guys. Like, a lot.

The Coolest Commencement Speakers of 2010

Although the whole "graduating" thing sucks in theory, there's always a lot of excitement surrounding the commencement speaker (or controversy, if you remember the whole Obama at Notre Dame debacle...). A good speaker can trick you into thinking this isn't the worst day of your life inspire you to look ahead to the future and all the possibilities that lay ahead.

Where’s All That “Change,” President Obama?

Our country has had the luck of having some great leaders, uh, lead us, presidential or otherwise. Today’s a day to commemorate, respect and analyze the past and future actions of our country’s leaders. So let’s all raise a glass and pour one out for the current big man on campus, Barack Obama.

Body Blog: It’s Obama’s Workout Plan!

If you somehow haven’t noticed by now, the Obama's are BUFF. With Michelle baring her toned arms in those sleeveless dresses we love so much and Barack going shirtless in Hawaii (yum), there’s no doubt we’ve got a fit couple leading our country. The Obama's get it done – and if they can do it, so can we!

The Weekly Ten: 2009 in the News

This week, as we round out 2009, I've picked out our favorite media-buzz worthy events of the year. Keep in mind that this list will include a lot more cheating and Ed Hardy than Healthcare reform and economic crashes. (Sorry Madoff, I'm just not that into you).

Candy Dish: Congratulations, President Obama!

• Obama takes home the Nobel Peace Prize...and defends the war. • Ooooh, take that, Tony Romo! • What's in the cup, Miley? • Jennifer Aniston's having a baby. Maybe. • What's your Jersey Shore nickname? • Is he cheating? Look for some clues...

Breaking News: Ivy Boys are Weird

Yesterday, this post on Jezebel pointed me towards this utterly, utterly ridiculous Times of London article that claims college-bound British ladies are increasingly enrolling in American universities—primarily to meet “Ivy League educated males.”

Obama’s Peace Prize—For or Against?

These Are The Most Influential Men of 2009?

You may find yourself asking, what does it take for a man to leave his mark on society in this day and age? AskMen.com made a list of the 49 most influential men of 2009, as voted by the readers. And apparently, the AskMen readers believe that the man that has most inspired them this year is Don Draper, the main character in AMC’s series Mad Men.

The Emmys’ Red (Hot) Red Carpet

So obviously the buzz on all the fashion blogs and entertainment channels today is centered on the red carpet from last night's Emmys. I must admit, I only tune in for the pre-show to see what all the celebs are wearing and to get the scoop on who was hot and who was totally not. Why waste three hours of “I’d like to thank God and the academy” when I can Google all that shiz the next day?

I Heart America!

Sometimes, I have to admit, I feel defective. People I hardly know forward me e-mails about supporting U.S. troops and flying American flags proudly, and I quietly delete them. It’s not that I hate my country. It’s just that I’ve never really felt any affection for it . . . until now.

Happy DILF Day!

Happy (almost) Father's Day! We know you guys aren't dads (and if there are any dads reading this, well, that's just sorta icky), but you are most likely celebrating one. Just because you're showering your dad with gifts of bacon and neckties, it doesn't mean you can't have a little somethin' somethin' for yourself.

G.W.W.E.: Kal “Presidential Pecker” Penn

Not many men can put a gun to their heads one day and accept a highly prestigious federal job the next, but leave it to Kal Penn to pull it off. Earlier this week, the scrumptious House star had fans in a tizzy when they tuned in to discover his character, Dr. Lawrence Kutner, had committed suicide.

Cosmo Says the Darndest Things: April (and Inaugural) Edition

We’re all well aware of the honeymoon playing out between our new Commander in Chief and every media outlet save FOX. I mean, when the new president can inspire debate over whether or not he’ll be funny on late night talk shows, rather than any role he should or should not play in this debacle, the rose colored glasses are on. Cosmo, not one to miss out on a trend, also felt the need in their April edition to give the new prez some props—in their own special way.
