As each day passes, it becomes more and more obvious to kool-aid drinkers that Barack Obama is not the Messiah they thought he would be.

Of course, some of us weren’t fooled by his slick talk and good looks. We saw right through Obama from the start. But now others are seeing the light.

Gay groups are upset — and rightfully so — at an obvious snub delivered by Mr. Bendover during a DNC fundraiser where he helped raise $4 million on Wednesday:

From the NY Times:

“A gaggle of sign-waving protestors milled around outside The Beverly Hilton, the sprawling hotel on Wilshire Boulevard. They must have caught the president’s eye when he arrived at the hotel from an earlier stop in Las Vegas because he relayed one of their messages to the crowd.

“‘One of them said, ‘Obama keep your promise,’ ‘ the president said. ‘I thought that’s fair. I don’t know which promise he was talking about.’

“The people in the audience – who paid $30,400 per couple to attend – laughed as they ate a dinner of roasted tenderloin, grilled organic chicken and sun choke rosemary mashed potatoes.”

Obama is a master at conveniently forgetting — or claiming not to know anything when a controversial issue arises.

Let the fireworks begin!!

From TMZ.com:

Rihanna’s lawyer just said the D.A. told him his client will be subpoenaed at the next court hearing.

Donald Etra said Rihanna will be called to the stand to testify at Chris Brown’s preliminary hearing on June 22.

Etra says his client will cooperate and take the stand. It’s not at all unexpected that the alleged victim would be called to the stand in a prelim.

Also today, the judge rejected a motion made by Chris Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, asking for an order requiring the LAPD to ante up info regarding leaks in the case.

Hey, Obamaholics: Can we go ahead and say that Barack Obama’s so-called $747 billion “Stimulus” bill — the one that he never even bothered to read before signing — is an epic failure now?

According to FOX News, the bill has failed to stimulate anything. In fact, the U.S. unemployment rate continues to climb with job losses numbering 16,000 each day!

But we already knew Obama’s wasteful spending bill was full of it. We knew that the bill contained billions in pork and pay offs to Obama’s cronies for helping him get elected.

The president called the stimulus package “the most sweeping economic recovery act in history — a plan designed to save jobs, create new ones and put money in people’s pockets.” He said it already has created or saved nearly 150,000 jobs…

Texas Rep. John Culberson called the stimulus package “a fiscal flop and nothing to celebrate,” and he said that since the bill was signed Feb. 17, “1.597 million jobs have been lost and unemployment numbers at their highest levels in two decades.”

We’re happy to see that Oscar winning actress Halle Berry is back on the wagon again after numerous paparazzi photos circulated around the blogs showing Halle looking dangerously thin. Some speculated that Halle may have been hitting the pipe, but those vicious rumors were never confirmed.

New paparazzi photos (from last week) reveal Halle’s new pixie hair cut. Again, we won’t bother to say who the inspiration behind Halle’s new look is. We’ll just post the pics and allow you to draw your own conclusions.

Who wore these strappy gladiator sandals worse: Rihanna or Lindsay Lohan? I’m going to say Lindsay wore these sandals worse. And I’m not saying that because RiRi is my favorite fashion icon either. Lindsay looks like she borrowed those sandals from one of her more trendier friends. Home girl has no style or class whatsoever.

From Perez Hilton:

B’s camp has announced that there will be 1,000 tickets priced at $20 a pop for each date on her North American tour!

Fans of Beyowulf can purchase the cheapie tix via Ticketmasterbeginning Friday morning.

Is Miz Knowles gifting her fans with affordable tickets because she’s feeling generous or because they weren’t selling otherwise??

YUP!

I see your girl Christina is still getting some publicity mileage out of that bottle of bleach dye and that package of Yaki.

This is the new group Electrik Red. I guess the label felt they had to stick a sista in the group to make them legit. I’m not impressed. These chicks look like every other packaged female group already out. Clearly they were manufactured for their looks vs. their talent. Not feeling them at all. NEXT!

The lead singer of the punk/rock group The Noisettes is a lovely black female. Her name is Shingai Shoniwa, which is an Asian name. She doesn’t look at all like she’s Asian to me. But then neither does Ne-Yo who is also part Korean.
UPDATE: According to loyal reader Tatenda, Shingai is originally of Zimbabwean descent.

Everybody’s favorite Socialite Kim Kardashian and her prop Reggie Bush were spotted at that boring Denver Nuggets vs. LA Lakers game at the Staples Center yesterday. We were beginning to wonder if they were still together. LOVE the Chanel bag and the Christian Louboutin booties. No one can say Miss Kim isn’t all the way up on her style game!

From AJC.com:

A judge has lowered bail for a Snellville man accused of murdering Atlanta rapper Dolla at a Los Angeles shopping mall. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Terry Bork reduced Aubrey Louis Berry’s bail to $2.1 million from $5 million on Tuesday.

Berry, a 23-year-old music promoter, is accused of gunning down Dolla, whose real name was Roderick Anthony Burton II, in the valet parking area of the Beverly Center. Berry’s attorney, Howard Price, said his client was acting in self-defense when he shot 21-year-old Dolla repeatedly with a 9 mm handgun.

Dolla’s stepfather, George Viera, said the rapper was in Los Angeles planning a birthday party for his longtime girlfriend.

The rapper was a protege of hip-hop star Akon and recently released two songs with the artist. [link]
