As part of some kind diversionary tactic in the War on Christmas, The White House posted a very cute video of Bo Obama inspecting all the Christmas trees he will not be allowed to pee on this holiday season. Personally, I'm amazed Republicans are letting Bo perform this vital function without Senate confirmation. There's no way the next Democratic president isn't getting so much as a First Goldfish until John McCain hears answers on Benghazi.
I'm less surprised that Bo's cuteness failed to create a ceasefire in the YouTube comment wars…

The video of Hillary Clinton dancing in South Africa is the political equivalent of videos of kittens playing in boxes. It's a little silly, a little funny, but ultimately harmless and pleasant.
See? It's like watching your incredibly accomplished mom take a break from making sure no one hates America more than usual, throwing on her favorite vaguely ethnic blue shirt and having a blast. I couldn't see how anyone could object to it, but then I saw the YouTube comments…
To be fair, Mao Tse-tung already kind of looks like Mao Tse-tung in drag. Every picture of him looks like my grandma but with a slightly bigger bald spot.
The only war Hillary Clinton has ever started is the war on giving a fuck.
That doesn't sound like an insult. It sounds like something a Jamaican person would say to compliment how good you are at dancing.
Grow up? She is definitely acting like a sixty-something in this video. If anyone in your family has ever gotten married, you know what I mean.
Is there such a thing as a Teleprompter for dancing?? If so, we might finally know why Bristol Palin lasted so long on Dancing with the Stars.
Who even knows what this raving lunatic means.

President Obama has the youth vote in the bag, as long as that bag is shaped like a penis-sock. Obama's campaign just uploaded a video of The Red Hot Chili Peppers performing for campaign volunteers…
Perfect! You know what eighteen-year-olds love? Bands that were popular in the early '90s. They're even more popular than Honeymoon in Vegas star Sarah Jessica Parker.
In retrospect, we probably should have known from the song "Give It Away" that the Red Hot Chili Peppers were socialists.

In the 2008 election, President Obama famously harnessed the power of social media to attract new supporters. So can Mitt Romney do the same in 2012? Probably not.
It turns out the Internet is doing more harm than good to the Romney campaign. Thanks to YouTube and Twitter, the presumptive nominee is being unfairly ganged up on. By reality…
After being dragged to the ideological right during the primary season by the likes of former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum and former House speaker Newt Gingrich, Romney is in the early stages of moving back to the center in hopes of courting electorally critical independents.
Nothing new there. But, because basically every phrase that Romney uttered during the primary (and well before that) is either available on YouTube or Twitter, President Obama's reelection team has tons of ammunition as they try to hold Romney to some of the things he has said in the past.
On Wednesday, the Obama campaign released a video splicing together Romney’s greatest hits (or, more accurately, misses) from the Republican primary race.
Reality can be really damaging to a presidential candidate. That's why it helps to live in an alternate universe, like Newt Gingrich does.
If Twitter, Facebook and YouTube aren't working for Mitt Romney, maybe he can try to attract voters on Instagram. Instagram lets you add filters that make your photos look like they're straight out of the 1960s. Just like Romney's social policies.
