Li’l Giuliani Loves Barack Obama, Seagram’s Coolers

Yesterday the nation shrugged at the news that Rudy offspring Caroline Giuliani was on Facebook and might support Barack Obama. Slate broke the story in a prize-worthy feat of investigative social network searching. But we wanted more: as everyone knows, Facebook is designed to aide in the hooking-up process and also to document totally bitchin parties. While we may never know which of Caroline’s pokes ended in pokings, anyone with access to her profile should have a window into her partying ways. Thankfully, one commenter came through, and provided the now-requisite pictures of a candidate’s child drinking underage. Read more on Li’l Giuliani Loves Barack Obama, Seagram’s Coolers…
 

Rudy’s Daughter Hot For Barry

Shame on Slate. Shame on them for invading the privacy of young Caroline Giuliani, daughter of Rudy, and publishing this screengrab just so we can all giggle at how she supports Barack Obama. Shame on them for making political hay out of Rudy’s messy family life, mocking his poor estranged child. Shame on them, most of all, for not showing us any of the 207 other photos of Caroline listed, some of which surely involve drinking or smoking up. If you’re going to sink to our level, guys, sink all the way. Daddy Dearest [Slate] Read more on Rudy’s Daughter Hot For Barry…

Congressional Moms Destroying Both Nation, Own Families

Did you know that there are ten Congresswomen with little kids?? It’s true! Ten ladies strutting around voting for shit when they should be at home raising their poor children! Just look at the list of shame: The 10 congresswomen with children under 13: Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Mary Landrieu (D-La.), Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.) and Reps. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Deborah Pryce (R-Ohio), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), Heather Wilson (R-N.M.), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) The Post tells us all about them today, from how Debbie Wasserman Shultz ignored her deathly ill 8-year-old to gallavant to New York for a fundraiser to how Heather Wilson hates Nancy Pelosi for making her work as much as a real working mother. And their lousy spoiled kids are interrupting Senate business: Read more on Congressional Moms Destroying Both Nation, Own Families…
 

President Heroically Makes Child Cry

A petulant little girl tried to shame the President at a Cleveland Q&A on Tuesday. Jessica Hackerd, 13, had Bush right where she wanted him. Defeated and confused, Bush had just finished his rambling remarks when young Jessica pounced. She went right for his weak spot with a pointed question about the recently-defeated immigration bill, the final nail in the coffin of the President’s domestic legacy.

Who Will Be Iowa’s Tanc Girl (or Boy!)

Tomas “The Tanc Engine” Tancredo is taking Iowa by storm as hicks across our nation’s second-boringest state thrill to his message of banning brown people once and for all. To help drum up the natives even more, “Tanc and Tonic” is holding an ol’ fashioned child exploitation contest. Read more on Who Will Be Iowa’s Tanc Girl (or Boy!)…
 

Emma Edwards Betrays Father, Elizabeth Trolls Blogs

During an Iowa campaign stop, 9-year-old Emma Claire Edwards made her true feelings about the presidential race known. After a brief stop at a Little League game in Beranek Park, where Emma Claire mentioned that her softball team’s name is the Hawkeyes, the family ventured on to Tipton to rejoin their favorite candidate. Oh, but that’s not entirely accurate — or at least it wasn’t on Saturday. When the Edwardses visited the Cedar County Democrats’ tent, Mrs. Edwards asked her daughter which of the presidential candidates she liked best.

The Kids Are Alright (Not Really)

Whether you’re a 50-year-old American captain killed in Iraq or a 33-year-old Egyptian hijacker flying into the World Trade Center, George W. Bush considers you “kids.” Speaking yesterday to his dozen remaining supporters in the United States, Bush said he will never let American troops out of Iraq: “And if I didn’t think it was necessary for the security of the country, I wouldn’t put our kids in harm’s way.” Read more on The Kids Are Alright (Not Really)…
 

2008: The Campaign Without Teenagers

While it’s certain that America will pick another crappy president next year, it’s increasingly unlikely that the winner will have any teen-aged daughters for the Washington Press Corps to ogle. Why? Experts say it’s because most of the major candidates are way too old and scary to have recently reproduced. Read more on 2008: The Campaign Without Teenagers…

Duncan Hunter’s Son Duncan Hunter Now Just Doing His Dad’s Work For Him

An emailer claims to have caught Duncan Hunter’s son Duncan Hunter pretending to be his congressman dad this last weekend. Though we’re pretty sure that’s not against the law — the district voted for Duncan Hunter, not necessarily that Duncan Hunter, right? Presidential candidate and former HASC chair, Duncan Hunter, was outside his office Friday practicing his golf swing at some length….while his son (also named Duncan Hunter) sat in on meetings in his Dads office — inc meetings with VERY high ranking military officers. There’s a hilarious story in here about the time our uncle Dick accidentally deposed the prince of Cambodia during a White House tour mistaken identity switcharoo in the ’70s, but it’s a bit long to get in to here. More speculation, including claims of presidential campaign impropriety (horror of horrors!), after the jump, as always.
