Because this is Jon Stewart, it is of course high comedy. Unless you chose to watch the election results come in with the toxic waste dump of a news network Fox News, you may not have seen Karl Rove’s meltdown, and Megan Kelly’s pathetic attempt to convince Fox News’ OWN electoral vote watchers that what they had just seen was not what they had just seen. Enjoy, and you’re welcomed.

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign intensified its rebukes of Mitt Romney Friday evening for a remark made by the presumptive Republican nominee about the president’s birth certificate earlier in the day.
Speaking to a crowd of enthusiastic supporters in Commerce, Mich. — and noting the local roots shared by him and his wife, Ann — Romney quipped that “no one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.

The Georgia Chapter of Black Women for Obama recently held a highly successful town hall meeting where many of the state’s most notable political figures and activists were in attendance.
In April of this year, a rally was held on the steps of the Georgia State Capitol to protest the War on Women – a conservative operative videotaped portions of a speech given by the Executive Director of Black Women for Obama, Patricia Wilson-Smith. Her speech energized the crowd gathered there, and apparently made Conservatives a little nervous.
A little break from the norm, ladies! In this incredible piece from Melissa Harris-Perry of the MHP Show, she schools non-Black America on everything related to “our” hair! I guarantee you’ve never seen anyone break it down to our friends of other ethnic persuasions quite like this before! Melissa Harris-Perry’s wit, humor and genius are just some of the reasons why BWFO loves her!
