The Great Presidential Chili Cook-Off

The Great Presidential Chili Cook-Off Who doesn't like their deep fried lard with a side of hope? Hope not just that it's magically calorie free, but that the future of America is bright and full of promise? Well presumably that's exactly what the producers of Paula's Party are banking on; for the September 20 episode of the show, Paula's very special guest will be none other than Michelle Obama! According to the Village Voice, Mrs. Future First Lady (it's happening, or else I'm blowing things up!) will team up with everyone's favorite drunk Southern cook, learn the importance of frying things (seriously!), share anecdotes about the first meal she ever cooked for Barack, and wrassle up a big pot of Yes We Can chili courtesy of Mr. Future President's (what?) own well-guarded recipe.

Convention or Film Festival?  You Decide! Later this month, movie stars and producers will descend upon Colorado. Hollywood's A-listers will rub shoulders with the industry elite, hobnob with the wealthy, attend exclusive parties, promote their causes, and get a sneak peek at a slate of movies. Is it the highly regarded Telluride Film Festival they're all turning out for? Not this time around. According to The Hollywood Reporter, what's got actors and producers all frothing with an excitement usually reserved for prestigious film festivals and awards ceremonies is, instead, the Democratic National Convention.

24: Changing Our Political Landscape

<i>24</i>: Changing Our Political Landscape

Apparently, and don't spread this around too much, television can sway people's political opinions. No, it's true! It was true back in the day, when an unshaven Dick Nixon debated a fresh-faced JFK and came off looking like a cartoon hobo, and it's true today. At least, that's what actor Dennis Haysbert would have us believe. He thinks that playing the President of the United States on 24 for two seasons (as well as one season as a candidate and one season as a former prez) showed America how awesome it would be to have a black president, and said as much to the Associated Press. But if that's the case, why didn't Hillary Clinton benefit from any of the numerous female presidents we've seen on TV?
