One More Time, With Feeling

Just in time for Tuesday’s primaries, the Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am has released another pro-Obama video, “We Are the Ones,” featuring another gaggle of celebs earnestly crooning and pledging their support for their favorite candidate.

‘Daily Show’: Bush Becomes Entertaining

Fist-pounding tantrums? Slide shows of his presidential visit to Africa? Sputtering at the podium? Suddenly, George W. Bush’s antics are strangely amusing for Jon Stewart, who speculates that the president may be afflicted with senioritis in his twilight days in the White House.

Obama Goes to Bollywood

Now, mind you, this is not an officially endorsed campaign video for Barack Obama. But we kind of wish it was.

McCain and Obama

McCain and Obama Get Ready to Rumble

In what could shape up to be a general election preview, John McCain and Barack Obama have been trading barbs on Iraq. The two have been critical of each other in the past, though they’ve also professed mutual respect, but the tone of this exchange was a bit tougher, at least on Obama’s end.

It wasn’t the easiest moment in Tuesday’s Democratic debate for either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, but both candidates handled it well when moderator Brian Williams broached the uncomfortable subject of the photo, leaked to the Drudge Report early Monday for apparently political purposes, of Obama wearing traditional African garb in Kenya.

Nader

Hello, Ralph Nader, We Are Anonymous

If you’ve never seen any of the anti-Scientology videos of “Anonymous,” this clip might seem a bit strange. While we would never compare Ralph Nader to the Church of Scientology, this spot-on parody is probably worth your 2 minutes and 21 seconds. Unless you’re one of those titans of industry who makes a million dollars a minute. Then it probably isn’t.

Ellen Rallies for Clinton

Barack Obama’s campaign may count she-mogul Oprah Winfrey in its stable of celebrity boosters, but Hillary Clinton’s got her own talk show powerhouse: Ellen DeGeneres, who made a live appearance during this recent rally to put Hillary on the spot with some tough questions, like what to do about the sparkly danger that glitter poses to Americans everywhere.

Cloonan

Interrogator: Torture Endangers America

Former FBI interrogator Jack Cloonan spills the beans to Foreign Policy Magazine about the techniques he used on top al-Qaida operatives. Cloonan explains that the ticking-time-bomb scenario often used to rationalize torture is a myth and that waterboarding only motivates the enemy to get revenge—even if it takes a generation.
