Not so cool now.According to some Philadelphia CityPaper blog post we don’t really believe and can only half comprehend because the HTML is all broken because a million people must be trying to read this same important scandalous story right now, Barack Obama was seen in a gym somewhere using the failed Microsoft music player called “the Zune” — instead of the Apple Mac iPod, which is what fancy people use, because they are so classy with their taste and money. UPCOMING REVELATIONS: Obama wears Old Navy jeans, likes Coldplay, loved The Da Vinci Code, and thought Return of the Jedi was the best of the original trilogy, because of the Ewoks.

    The Real Barry’s a dork! Albeit a very smart dork with a hot wife, a Hahvahd law degree, elected senator and now preznit.

    Does this mean that between Barry and Michelle, Michelle’s the “cool” parent?

  2. We knew everything we needed to know about Barry’s “coolness” when we saw him riding a bike with a helmet with his cell phone clipped to his Dad Jeans.

  3. Barack probably traded the Neon in on a Ford Country Squire station wagon with fake wood on the sides.

  4. i thought reggie got him an ipod for his birthday?!? barry’s gopher clearly gets revenge on barry for being so high maintenance, by making him look dorky. he really went too far when he insisted on that organic blackberry tea shit he drinks, the zune is the modern equivalent of a lump of coal.

  5. [re=190323]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Well my iPod had just broken and the 30GB Zune was a lot cheaper on Amazon than any comparable product if I bought the brown one, so I did.

    Though I haven’t used it much lately, I’ve switched over to a portable XM satellite radio! (oh god I’m not helping my case am I?)

  6. What’s next? He liked the New Coke instead of Coke Classic? He still watches VHS? He actually likes Brooks and Dunn? The scales are falling with a THUD.

  7. In the movie and TV biz, this is called product placement. Bill Gates cuts a big fat check every time Obama is is photoed with said Zune. A big, but not as fat, check is written every time the words Obama and Zune appear in the same paragraph.

    Opps, there goes another $10K to the Obama Inauguration fund!

  8. Here’s the straight dope– the Zune has an FM receiver so Barry can catch all the wackiness that is “Fox and Friends” during his morning workouts. If he had an iPod, he’d have to read the transcript and Steve Ducey does not translate well to the written word.

  9. Actually, this brand choice does make sense if you consider that Bill Gates has given many millions of his dollars to help other people while Steve Jobs won’t spare a quarter for the Salvation Army bucket. I think that Wonkette should buy Barry a cheap MP3 player that has a strap loop so we can attach the most vital of all accessories: miniature TruckNutz.

  10. Obama: Wears Old Navy
    McCain: Is “Old Navy
    Obama: Likes Coldplay
    McCain: Hates foreplay (you cunt)
    Obama: Loved The DaVinci Code
    McCain: Told DaVinci to hold his paintbrush straighter

  11. [re=190324]dano[/re]: I needed an MP3 player for biking and I hate Apple fans boys.

    This is why I never eat food. Too many Republicans get in my face about how great it is an all, and I hate Republicans. So it’s mostly just sand and rocks for me.

  12. [re=190346]Godot[/re]: Really, that’s the only excuse for having a Zune.

    Zune = cheaper than iPod.

    And the one guy I know that has one, says it works (sorta). So what the hey?

  13. [re=190356]obfuscator[/re]: No mine are,
    btw it was the Philadelphia Sports Club, seems Gold’s Gym doesn’t allow a zune regardless if your prezdent elekt.

  14. [re=190402]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Ha ha. I laugh at the Apple cult. Apple products (especially the computers) don’t do anything that other companies products don’t do…except cost more. So here’s to Apple, the symbol of our vanishing consumer culture!

  15. Hopey wears pleated pants with cuffs, a BlackBerry belt clip and sandals with jeans. He is smart to pimp the anti-establishment ‘change’ mp3 player to bolster his dork image. All of us cool people who like free music have one.

  16. [re=190414]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Yeah if something works as well and provides every service you need it to, then being cheaper is a TERRIBLE reason to prefer one product over another. I compared my brother’s iPod to my Zune. In every important respect, they are the same device-they play music. That’s what I need. What I don’t need to do is be constantly reassuring myself that my player is the coolest and bestest because deep down inside I know that Steve Jobs has shafted me.

  17. Also, I don’t think those are jeans he wears, they are denim pants. There’s a difference (a much worse difference). He ain’t no clothes horse. I imagine that if he marched off Obama One with an I-Pod and an Apple notebook (like the one I’m using right now) he’d have lost big time. The Simpsons had a great take on Apple (or Mapple, as they called it) Sunday night…

  18. [re=190351]FreshCliches[/re]: [re=190365]JohnnyMac[/re]: [re=190363]BigDupa[/re]:

    Surely the real reason Hopey has a Zune is obvious – Bush has an iPod, similarly Bush has a PC so he has a Mac. He’s the Anti-Bush People!

  19. [re=190644]Godot[/re]: Who the fuck would run boot camp so they could use a zune with their mac? That just doesn’t sound like how barry would roll. I will stand corrected in the presence of any zune proof.

  20. [re=190603]Slartibartfast[/re]: Actually, I like cheap. Cheap is good. (I drive a ’90 Camry, fer pete’s sake). My 8 gig iPod touch, for another example, was cheap – I got it for free when I bought a a new iMac this spring, to replace the iMac bought in 1999 and have been using every day since then.

    This is why I’m not convinced Apple products are necessarily more expensive than their competitors. I buy my stuff for the long haul, generally speaking.

  21. [re=190592]sk1win[/re]: ha ha my iphone is loaded with pirated material. Oh damnit, At&t is now tapping my communications with immunity. whooops

And the Touch is an amazing gizmo.

  23. Additionally, I understand he was playing Altered Beats on Sega Genesis whilst being fellated by Larry Sinclair. What a queer. Everyone knows that real men play Call of Duty 4 in the OT-8.
