As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Beyonce Admits She Lip Synced the National Anthem

She said she practiced until her feet bled, but decided to use the recording anyway.

I’m not sure how her singing caused her feet to bleed, but she should definitely have this checked out.

What I’m still trying to figure out is, if she wasn’t singing, why did she pull the earpiece out of her ear midway through the song? Was that to, say, GIVE US THE WRONG IMPRESSION?

Alright, enough writing. I might break an ankle.

Top Ten Secret Obama Requirements for Path to Citizenship

Not to stir up trouble, but White House Dossier has uncovered a private White House list of President Obama’s requirements for granting illegal immigrants a “path to citizenship.” Apparently, it’s not a stringent as some people think, and some of it appears either silly or designed to mint new Democratic voters.

With the realization that this could create an uproar and shatter the emerging bipartisan “consensus” on immigration reform, White House Dossier presents Obama’s secret top ten requirements for a path to citizenship.

1. Must be able to lip sync the national anthem.

2. Must know difference between a Big Mac and a Quarter Pounder.

3. Must attest that you have read the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and “Dreams from my Father.”

4. Must be willing to support a Constitutional amendment allowing third term for a president.

5. Must present proof of being disliked by the French.

6. You don’t have to learn English, but you must promise never to oprima numero dos para español.

7. Must have children who play soccer but refuse to watch it on TV.

8. Must attest that you support asylum for Aunt Zeituni.

9. Must agree to stop putting Tabasco sauce in everything.

10. Must be willing to vote Democratic, even after you have died.

Michelle Tweets Cabbage to Show Support for Let’s Move

First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted a photo of some cabbage and broccoli and a link to a recipe on the Let’s Move website to demonstrate that she still maintains an interest in her kids health initiative.

The tweet came just hours after an article was posted in White House Dossier Tuesday noting that Michelle appeared to have abandoned her Let’s Move program.

Michelle hadn’t done anything public related to the program in nearly five months, since welcoming kids back to school in early September with news of the healthy new lunches they’d be getting from the cafeteria. But amid reports kids were going hungry because the meals lacked calories or tasted bad, Michelle suddenly stopped promoting Let’s Move.

The decision seemed tied to politics. President Obama had been campaigning heavily at high schools where students were forced to eat from Michelle’s menu, and the program was proving a ripe target for Republicans.

The White House Dossier piece appeared at 10:21 am ET. At 5:16 PM, @FLOTUS – the acronym for First Lady of the United States – tweeted this:

Michelle cabbage

The recipe mentioned in the tweet is an August 17, 2012 post on the Let’s Move website that tells you how to make “Yummy Cabbage Sloppy Joes.”

The tweet is a sign that Mrs. Obama may return to her Let’s Move program now that the political heat is off. Or not. The third anniversary of Let’s Move is February 9, and if she fails to mark the occasion, you can be pretty sure the program is coming to an end.
