‘That kind of slouch': Testy Obama takes a swipe at Putin’s posture

No, he really said it. Here’s how President Obama described Putin at today’s presser:



To quote Jerry Seinfeld, “This has ‘international incident’ written all over it”:

But maybe something good can still come out of this:

Who says it can’t still be one?


Will it catch on like the Safety Dance? It’s still too soon to tell. But one thing’s for sure: we’re pretty curious to see how Putin responds.

Zinger? We’re pulling for him to challenge Obama to a wrestling match.

‘This is INSANE!’ Fox News’ Andy Levy called it: Tony Stewart won’t race today

Twitchy also will not show the graphic video, but Twitchy readers know that NASCAR driver Tony Stewart fatally hit driver Kevin Ward on Saturday. Many called for Stewart to drop out of Sunday’s race while others argued that his racing might not be as callous as it appeared to many.

Andy Levy, who as “Red Eye” fans know is a huge NASCAR fan, did not think that Stewart would race on Sunday. He argued that no facts can be known yet, but believed that Tony Stewart should not participate in the race.

He called it. It is now being reported that Stewart will not race today.

And a truth-boom shreds the magical claim regardless of its veracity or lack thereof:

TMZ: ‘Tea Party’ wrestler Jack Swagger arrested for pot possession

This is what they call breaking character. WWE wrestler Jack Swagger, who recently emerged as a racist “Tea Party” heel leading up to a showdown with Mexican-born Alberto Del Rio, was arrested for driving under the influence last night, according to TMZ. The site says Swagger was pulled over for speeding in Mississippi and was found to be driving under the influence and in possession of marijuana.
