barack obama appears on daily show but doesnt mention gay rights

We enjoyed Barack Obama's interview with Jon Stewart for the most part….but he STILL DIDN'T ADDRESS GAY RIGHTS ISSUES!

Overall, it was an entertaining interview, and they certainly discussed some crucial issues, but we wish they could have given even 1 minute of time to the issue of gay rights.

Here's Jon Stewart on the current state of the people in the nation:

"Are we the people we were waiting for? Or, does it turn out those people are still out there and we don't have their number? How are you feeling about that?"

In response, Obama said the following:

(That he was) "…feeling great about where the American people are, considering what we have gone through."

Obama continued to list accomplishments of his office, including health-care reform, financial reform, credit card reform, and slowly growing the economy.

Jon Stewart and Obama butted heads the most when the issue of health care came up.

Here's what Stewart had to say about it:

"Sometimes I don't even know what you want in health legislation."

Jon also called Obama's dealings with health care legislation "timid." Here's how Obama replied:

"Jon, I love your show but this is something where I have a profound disagreement with you — I don't want to lump you in with other pundits."

Obama defended his administration's health care legislation, and made it clear to Jon that he doesn't consider it to be "timid" at all.

As we said, there were certainly some important issues discussed, and we think it was a well-done, entertaining interview, but Obama really needs to step up to the plate with gay rights issues!

We appreciate the fact that he released an "It Gets Better" video for gay youth, but we're def gonna need a lot more from him than that.

What did U think of Obama's interview on The Daily Show?

Franken-Heidi Gets Political And A Tad Self-Aware!!

Filed under: Silly!PolitikHeidi Montag


We hate to admit it…but she IS kind of funny in this!

El Lay's own Real Heidi Doll finally realized that she looks ridiculous and agreed to be part of a HIGHlarious Funny Or Die video series, directed by Ron Howard, that is urging Congress to pass financial reform!

Heidi Montag, the political activist, folks!!

Of course, instead of letting the video speak for itself and appearing to be somewhat self-aware and, dare we say, intelligent, girlfriend had to open her mouth and say:

"I am so excited about my acting future. I can't wait for my next role to be as an action star! This is just the beginning of a whole new world for me."

A whole new world of opportunities for Franken-tittays, a whole new world of despair for everyone else.
