DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2005, then a new member of Congress, regularly attacked then-President Bush for high gas prices, warning we would consistently see gas above $3 a gallon. Now Republicans are attacking Obama for high gas prices. Nothing new under the sun.
Modelling is dangerous. In honor of Fashion Weeks the world over, here are runway models stumbling, tripping and flat out falling on their elegant keisters.
Mitt Romney once drove for twelve hours with his dog on the roof of his car. In this children's book (that you can now own in real life!) Mitt's dog Seamus walks you through the many things you shouldn't do as a dog owner.
Protip: When someone says "Hey, you're in the shot", this is the exact wrong way to react.
Today, "there's no silver bullet."
This truly is a historic day. All in all, they look good.
The 27-pound lobster, about the size of a 3-year-old toddler, was freed in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Apparently his claws are tough enough to rip a man's arms off.
They're thinking about doing Ramadan too. Not interested in the fact that Newt is giving up dessert.
Another day, another story about how horrible Chris Brown is.
This is such a low move, even other tabloids are blurring out the image. But you can find it in every grocery check-out line in America. Plus, Angelina Jolie is coolest ex-wife ever and volcano restaurants are now a thing. These and other Buzz that flew under the radar await your clicking pleasure.
Florida Republican Congressman Allen West took to Facebook to attack the President over rising gas prices.
The National Rifle Association, the Bush administration, and other gun lobbying groups were against the measure. Romney, who signed into law the Bay State's first assault weapons ban, is viewed with some suspicion by gun rights groups for his past support of strong gun control measures. Romney, an avid promoter of federalism, said the program would be best run on a federal not a state level, if ongoing studies proved the program stopped crime.
What, you think a thing like being cut in half can keep a Sith Lord down? If Boba Fett can survive the Sarlacc, what's a little disembodiment between enemies?
At last night's Republican debate in Arizona, Rick Santorum took considerable flack for his endorsement of the libertarian Arlen Specter over the more conservative Pat Toomey. But each candidate has some endorsement skeletons in their own closets. Be it endorsing the guy who wanted to impeach Bush, the candidate who dropped out and campaigned for the Democrats, the guy who helped pass ObamaCare, or the four third party candidates with fringe views, all the 2012 candidates have some endorsement they probably now regret.
According to the author's website, Rowling is moving in a new literary direction.
Memories thought lost in last year's disaster miraculously resurface and are restored by volunteers, bringing untold joy to survivors. Here are images of the heroic effort to save photographs from Japan's earthquake and tsunami ravaged regions.
Chances are if you have an internet connection you've probably used it to commit some kind of copyright infringement. And chances are also pretty good your first download was probably pretty embarrassing. So own up, what was the first thing you ever illegally downloaded? Bonus points for who used the oldest p2p network.
Gingrich and Santorum revive an attack from 2004.
This cannot be allowed to continue.
If you want proof that the United States has a weird relationship with contraception, look no further than this video. Former Disney star Zac Efron drops a condom on the red carpet of the premiere for his new movie "The Lorax," and rather than people having the normal reaction of NOT CARING, someone took the time to make a video that breaks down the moment like it's the Zapruder film. Back and to the left. Back and to the left.
That, remember, George didn't even say. He just got George'd.
A lady in Sioux City, Iowa is selling a three-year-old chicken nugget that totally definitely absolutely looks like our nation's first President in order to raise money for church camp. The auction, which ends in a week, now sits right above $200. This is almost as good as the time I found a fruit roll-up that looked like Franklin Pierce.
The campaign now offers iPhone cases. Android users are Republicans anyway, right?
Picture of the day: A merino lamb attempts to climb an enclosure to get back to its mother just before feeding time. Taken in Brandenburg, Germany, where the lambs will be sold in time for traditional Easter dinner. (Thanks for the tip, Sarah!)
The most dazzling dunks from the first half of the NBA season by the Clippers' Blake Griffin, the most explosive player in the NBA. At some point, Blake Griffin is going to dunk on Jeremy Lin, and the internet is going to explode.
You know what they say—two heads are better than not being a genetic aberration as a result of selenium pollution! From an environmental impact study by mining company J.R. Simplot, here are two babies spawned by trout captured in Idaho creeks. Even though Simplot documented these and other mutations, their study determined they should be allowed to dump even more chemicals into the water supply.
BuzzFeed is proud to showcase the many athletic achievements of the leader of the Republic of Wadiya. Buzzfeed is in no way being coerced or held against their will until they praise the glory of his name.
As a child, he was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Ticket balancing is a great tradition, and this could affect Romney's Vice Presidential calculation.
Courtney Stodden gave the Daily Mail and exclusive look inside her closets recently. She really has a thing for shoes.
The former Senator may have homeschooled his children, but taxpayers footed the bill.
Susan B. Anthony List launches $150,000 radio ad campaign for Santorum in Michigan.
The whole original cast is coming back.
"I went out the other night, to, you know, dance with my bitches." That's the first line. Gold star to everyone that makes it through the whole thing.
MP demands the Ambassador push back on his euthanasia claim.
"Ron Paul has got arthritis. That must have hurt him, fuck you Rick!"
The Internet: Where the absurd meets the scientific to create the wildly offensive. God bless it.
Do you think you can guess how a babe keeps her muff based on how she dresses? Does your co-worker's carpet match the drapes? Is that geeky girl in your class secretly a sex kitten who shaves it bald? The answers might surprise you... This is GuessH…
Here's Mitt Romney's terse response to John King asking a follow up question at the CNN Arizona debate. Political Debate 101.
While the audience was all ears at the Republican debate in Arizona, Sheriff Joe was all eyes.
Short and sweet. And in the case of Newt Gingrich, sarcastic? Here are the responses from the CNN Arizona debate when John King asked each candidate how they would describe themselves in just one word.
In 2006 the Republican Presidential candidate proudly featured the endorsement of the Republican turned Democrat Senator from Pennsylvania. Romney hit Santorum tonight for his endorsement of Specter over the more conservative Pat Toomey in the 2004 Republican primary.
The horror! Who is forcing these poor men into these union jobs?
Ron Paul supporters seem to far outnumber everyone else. Here's the rather rowdy scene in front of the Mesa Arts Center where Romney, Paul, Santorum and Gingrich are currently scrapping.
A rare moment in a political debate: Republicans have a clear, detailed debate over the propriety of earmarks.
Ron Paul: "I am the champion of the Constitution. I am the defender of liberty." Beat that.
He's right behind you, Callista...RUN!!!! These children are now forever scarred.`
"He's going to have to have an answer for these things."
Rick Santorum is never one to shy away from inflammatory rhetoric. In a 2010 speech at the Pennsylvania Republican State Committee's annual dinner, Santorum compared the President, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi to drug dealers who are trying to get you hooked on entitlement programs.
A response LDS baptisms for the dead: "Sadly, many Mormons throughout history have died without having known the joys of homosexuality..." Our only question: What is gay heaven like?
