“This happened because of you”
Congrats are in order for President Obama for winning reelection but also because … his victory tweet last night is now the most re-tweeted tweet that has ever been re-tweeted. Shortly after the election was called in his favor, President Obama posted a photo and a message on his official Twitter profile … and that message was instantly retweeted by tens of thousands of people. Justin Bieber used to hold the record for the most re-tweeted tweet ever but Obama has just snatched his wig. More »
History Is Made in America
Last night’s election win was a big one for President Barack Obama, reelected to serve as our nation’s leader for a second 4 year term, but it was also a monumental and historic night for equality. For the first time ever in this country, same-sex marriage proposals were passed by voters in 3 states and an amendment to ban same-sex marriage in another state was voted down by voters. People, this is very significant. Marriage Equality has been passed in this country by way of judicial ruling and by legislation … but it was always voted down by voters when the matter was put to popular vote (Proposition 8 here in California, you might remember, took away the right to same-sex marriage here 4 years ago). For the first time ever, voters in not just one state but 4 states stood up for equality for all. I’m just stunned and elated. History was made in other ways last night as well. Tammy Baldwin was elected as the first openly gay US Senator (she is also a veteran) and in New Hampshire, the State is now governed by all women! The governor and entire Congressional contingent are women! If all of this combined doesn’t prove that America is ready to move FORWARD with progress, then I don’t know what does. Read on to learn about all of this history and very good news. More »
FORWARD, 4 More Years
It is with a very happy heart that I can say that President Barack Obama has won reelection in the 2012 Presidential Election. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty confident even since the first debate but there was NO WAY I was going to say anything out loud with any definity. Naturally, I worried very much from time to time mostly because of the way the 24 hour news cycle had to frame the election as a horse race and yes, it was a close election but thankfully, Obama pulled out a win. The president issued a statement to his supporters from his Chicago, IL headquarters thanking them for their hard work in reelecting him.

"All my respect and adoration"
Beyoncé Knowles, who famously performed for President Barack Obama at his inauguration back in 2009, has posted a series of photos on her official website proudly proclaiming her support for Obama in the 2012 presidential election. I think it’s not a big surprise that Bey would be such an outspoken and avid supporter of Obama. She has worked for his re-election campaign and her husband Jay-Z spent much time campaigning with the President in the closing days of the election. Many people in this country vote with pride and it is very heartening to see, truly. Click below to check out Bey‘s election photos and read the full text of a handwritten open letter she has penned to President Barack Obama. More »

... Then Send Me Your 'I Voted' Sticker Photos :)
Election Day is here again. As some of you longtime PITNBers might recall, it was 4 years ago that we awoke on Election Day 2008 and anxiously awaited for the country to elect our next president. The candidate I supported, Barack Obama, won the election and became our 44th president. It is now Election Day 2012 and it is time for our nation to vote again … and I think it will come as no surprise to anyone even remotely familiar with me that I am, once again, supporting President Obama for another 4 years as our Commander In Chief. Now, I would never dream of telling anyone how they should cast their vote, I can only express my personal beliefs for the way I am choosing to vote. No matter who you vote for, please make sure you get out there and VOTE TODAY! We live in a nation that is so blessed with riches, chief among them is our right to elect our leaders. It is Election Day and it is our duty to get out there and vote today. More »

The Campaign Trail Gets Pop
A little while back we saw Katy Perry rocking the illest Barack Obama dress at one of his campaign rallies in Las Vegas. Katy‘s politico-fashion statement didn’t work for everyone, but Trent and PITNBR Meghan were totally loving her look (for obvious reasons, lol). The pop star is still on the campaign trail with the President and performed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as the POTUS is hitting up some Swing States in these last few days leading up to the election. I gotta say, I’m loving her bright blue, glittery “FORWARD” dress and I’m finally seeing what PITNBR gina noted on the last post: Her legs look AH-MAZING!!! True that, gina. True that. Peep the gallery for more!

My good friends Emma Bates and Michael Serato put teamed up with some of LA’s most beloved drag queens — Willam Belli, Detox, Vicki Vox, Pandora and Ozma — to put together a video that is aimed at women voters. As you can see in the clip above, these queens have very strong opinions on the very important women’s issues in this presidential election and they want YOU to hear what they have to say. Take a listen, see what you think.
Don't Be A Zomney
As we move into the final week of the 2012 Presidential Election here in the US, last minute endorsement videos are starting to make their closing arguments on TV and online. Today we get to see a just-released endorsement video made by director Joss Whedon … for Mitt Romney. That’s right folks, Joss is endorsing Romney … for the Zombie Apocalypse! LOL! The video truly speaks for itself. Check out the video above and see what Joss has to say about this very important presidental election.

Katy Perry recently performed at a campaign rally in Las Vegas for President Barack Obama, and her dress… was something else. The pop star (who turns 28 today) wore a white dress designed to look like a voting ballot, with the Obama/Biden box shaded in. We’ve seen Katy wear some crazy ish, so I guess this is just another one for the books, lol. And it was also pretty appropriate, given the occasion. It’s not like she was gonna wear one of those Mitt Romney tees from Urban Outfitters. Anyway, there’s been so much news about which celebrity is voting for which candidate (people lost their minds when they found out Clueless/Single Ladies star Stacy Dash came out in support of Romney), do you guys think the celebrity/politics mix is a bit much? I’m still not over the Clint Eastwood v. Chair debacle; that was intense! No, but seriously. Who secretly wants the dress?

"OMG it is HAPPENING!!!!!!!!"
As those of us here in the US should be well aware, the third presidential debate took place in Boca Raton, FL … and it was broadcast nationwide on all the major television networks. Among the folks watching the debate live last night was Lindsay Lohan. Yes, Lindsay Lohan. Apparently, Lindsay decided to share her thoughts on the subject matter being discussed because, hey, why not?! Of the 3 presidential debates, last night’s debate focused on foreign policy issues … so CLEARLY, Lindsay had a vested interest in the topic at hand. Click below to read the debate tweets that Lindsay shared with her followers on her official Twitter profile last night as President Barack Obama and his challenger discussed pressing foreign policy topics during last night’s presidential debate.
