Obama Attends Alfalfa Club’s Roast On Capitol Hill And Aims Jokes At Rahm Emanuel

President Barack Obama served as headline speaker for the annual Alfalfa Dinner roast on Saturday in Washington D.C. and let loose with a few jokes at his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

The White House released a few of the President’s zingers which took aim at Emanuel’s penchant for profanity. “It was actually Rahm’s idea to do the swearing-in ceremony again,” Obama said. “Of course, for Rahm, every day is a swearing-in ceremony, ” he joked.

The President also made light of his recent blackberry controversy saying, “In just the first few weeks, I’ve had to engage in some of the toughest diplomacy of my life. And that was just to keep my Blackberry.”

Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin was also in attendance but, since the black-tie affair traditionally bars reporters from attending, it is not known whether the President poked fun at the Caribou Barbie. We hope someone did.

GIMME FIVE: Must-Have 2009 Calendars, Including Kim Kardashian, Twilight And Bubble Wrap

What better way to ring in the New Year than with a calendar that reflects your obsessions?

Whether you’re a vampire fanatic, a horny teenage boy, or a gun-toting Republican, there’s a calendar out there just for you.

Here are Blindie’s five must-have calendars for 2009:

This 16-month calendar from Stephenie Meyer’s theatrical adaptation of Twilight is being touted as the only one available from the teen vampire flick. With loads of photos of Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan, Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, and even Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black, plus a hefty pricetag of over $50, this calendar is for the die-hard fan.

Kim Kardashian’s sexy 12-month calendar was originally intended as a one year anniversary gift for boyfriend Reggie Bush, but is now available to every schoolboy. The sultry 28 year-old confessed to working out “like crazy” and even undergoing cellulite treatment “in order to make this the hottest shoot ever.”

This 13-month calendar features over 50 photos, some “never before seen,” of former vice-presidential candidate Alaskan governor Sarah Palin, her family and her trusty rifle.

If you still don’t think the Obama gold dollar coin is worth ten bucks then this 16-month calendar featuring photos and memorable quotes from the 44th U.S. president might prove to be a better investment.

This trendy bubble wrap calendar allows you to pop through 365 days of the year and even provides extra bubbles to burst as you satisfy your daily cravings of the addictive shipping material.

Barbara Walters Names Obama ‘Most Fascinating Person’ Of 2008

Barbara Walters named President-elect Barack Obama as 2008’s No.1 “Most Fascinating” person on her ABC special Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2008, on Thursday.

Making history as the first African American to be elected as president, Obama was probably the most expected choice.

“This was almost the easiest year that we’ve ever had, because we had so many naturals,” said Walters.

The $100 million dollar box office man Will Smith brings up the rear in the 10th position.

And sandwiched in between America’s most beloved black men are Tom Cruise in the No. 2 spot, followed by former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, actor Frank Langella, the pregnant man Thomas Beatie, conservative republican radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, Saturday Night Live veteran and 30 Rock star Tina Fey (yes, this sort of balances out Palin’s presence on the list!), teen actress and rock star Miley Cyrus, and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps.

Palin Pranked By Canadian Radio Jocks

Canadian radio jocks Marc-Antoine Audette and Sébastien Trudel, the “Masked Avengers,” prank called vice-president nominee Sarah Palin on Montreal’s CKOI radio.

The two comedians, who are notorious for prank calling celebrities, posed as French President Nicolas Sarkozy as they engaged the Alaskan governor in a hilarious conversation for nearly six minutes.

Palin had no clue the joke was on her as she answered questions about Joe Plumber and laughed at a Nailin’ Palin compliment. She even invited the faux Sarkozy on a hunting trip, to which he replied, “I just love killing those animals. Mmm, mmm, take away life, that is so fun. I’d really love to go, so long as we don’t bring along Vice-President Cheney.”

The Celine Dion-like accent should’ve tipped Palin off right away, or at least her staffers.

Colin Powell Endorses Obama And Disappoints McCain

General Colin Powell declared his support for democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday.

“I think we need a transformational figure, I think that we need a president who is a generational change, and that’s why I’m supporting Barack Obama. Not out of any lack of respect or admiration for Senator John McCain,” Powell said.

The former secretary of state who served in three Republican administrations also criticized John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin as a running mate. “She is a very distinguished woman and she is to be admired,” Powell said. “But … I don’t believe she is ready to be president of the United States.”

McCain appeared on Fox News Sunday and remarked that he was not surprised by Powell’s decision and will “continue to respect and admire Secretary Powell.”

VIDEO VIRUS: Saturday Night Live‘s ‘Mother-Humpin’ Palin Rap

After weeks of jokes made at her expense, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin finally made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live.

The Republican vice-presidential nominee poked fun at herself in the opening sketch as she watched SNL alum Tina Fey give another dead-on impersonation and “pageant walk” during a press conference. Palin also helped Alec Baldwin recall the nickname she had been dubbed in the press -“Caribou Barbie.”

But the most memorable sketch was a very pregnant Amy Poehler rapping, in place of Palin, “all the mavericks in the house put your hands up” and boasting “I shoot a mother-humpin’ moose eight days of the week!”
