    Vice presidential hopeful Kamala Harris had an awkward moment during a campaign event in Wisconsin, describing the state as “part of her story,” while avoiding reporters. The moment happened during an in-person campaign event Monday with black, Milwaukee-based business leaders when the state’s Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes tried to turn the microphone over to her to take questions from the press. Harris had already given remarks on the “dignity of work,” a theme of the campaign, and Barnes figured the vice presidential hopeful would be answering questions as reporters bemoan a lack of access to Harris and her running mate,...

    With “The Conners” slated to debut this month sans Roseanne Barr, the remaining cast members are reflecting on their new direction after Barr’s firing. “It was awkward but not awkward,” Laurie Metcalf, who plays Jackie Harris, told People about filming without Barr. “It was right but not right, wrong but not wrong.” As the series is expected to address, Barr’s character is killed off and the family is left to recover. “Any sadness that we feel over what we’ve lost we’re hopefully channeling in an honest way into the show,” added Sarah Gilbert, who returned to her role as Darlene...

    FRISCO -- It was an unsettling bathroom counter that Jessica Rush will never forget. Rush was inside a bathroom Thursday at Baylor Medical Center in Frisco when a man barged into the women’s bathroom because he thought she was a male. “You didn’t look like a girl when I saw you enter. I thought you was a…,” the man told her. “A boy?” she asked him. “Yes, I was kind of confused when I saw this,” the unidentified man. “That’s the only reason. Now that I see you are a woman. … You know it’s difficult. Of course, you dress...

    Last week, Conservative pundit Ann Coulter told me and a thousand young libertarians that we libertarians are puss- -- well, she used slang for a female body part. We were in Washington, D.C., at the Students for Liberty conference, taping my TV show, and she didn't like my questions about her opposition to gay marriage and drug legalization. "We're living in a country that is 70 percent socialist," she says. "The government takes 60 percent of your money. They take care of your health care, your pensions ... who you can hire ... and you (libertarians) want to suck up...
  • NBC's Alexander to Romney Sons: 'Are You Out of Touch?'

    Earlier in the segment, Alexander explained the role of the sons: "For a candidate who at times has struggled to connect, the campaign hopes the sons can also help explain some of their father's more idiosyncratic moments." In a preview of the interview on Thursday's Today, Alexander proclaimed: "For a candidate who's been called aloof, even awkward, the Romney boys help highlight their father's human side." NBC's Alexander to Romney Sons: 'Are You Out of Touch?' In one line of questioning in the wide-ranging interview, Alexander bizarrely jumped from asking about their missionary work to grilling them on why they...

    While greeting a Latino audience to support her husband’s speech about opportunities for Hispanics, Michelle Obama decided an exotic gown was in order. As President Barack Obama spoke at the black-tie event, the First Lady looked stunning in the strapless raw-silk dress by U.S. designer Chris Benz. She appeared to be inspired by an Amazonian peacock as she sashayed into the Washington Convention Center with matching emerald hued earrings and classic black heels. And Mrs Obama seemed delighted with the President’s pledge to put more money in the pockets of Latino workers by the look of her ear-to-ear grin on...

    Mitt Romney’s social awkwardness is legendary – and the media is noticing it to the detriment of his 2012 hopes. Romney has caught flak before for his lack of casual ease, lack of social polish, and general banality. But now that the media has taken to writing stories about it, the ‘Romney is a weird, awkward Morman’... threatens to catch and destroy his image, as...from the Washington Post: In formal settings -- news conferences, or Monday night's debate -- Romney is confident and competent. But in casual moments, such as Tuesday morning's retail politics in New Hampshire, his weirdness comes...

    Update: This is the most defensive interview with a politician since “I did not sleep with that woman…Ms. Lewinsky!” And we all remember how that turned out. I posted a section of it earlier, but you really have to see the whole clip to appreciate the way Rep. Weiner avoids the questions. He’s positively robotic about it, even refusing to answer questions that he could simply answer with a “No.” Mediaite redeems itself by posting this. Also a big hat tip to Ace which is where I saw it:

    Obama Makes Stop On Way To Afghanistan In Whirlwind Tour Of Middle East, Europe CHICAGO (CBS) A group soldiers serving overseas, including some from the Chicago area, were overjoyed Saturday when presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama visited in Kuwait. As CBS 2's Susan Carlson reports, Obama stopped in at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait before making his first trip to Afghanistan. Camp Arifjan is a major gateway for U.S. soldiers moving into and out of Iraq. The soldiers applauded thunderously when Obama arrived; one of them could barely contain herself as she sported a Chi-town sign. When the cheers settled...

    Norwegian companies insult foreign clients, lose business contracts and are reluctant to expand into new markets because of the poor English language skills of employees and business leaders, according to a new survey. "Norwegians think their English is much better than what it really is," philologist Glenn Ole Hellekjær said. More than half of the Norwegian business leaders in a recently conducted survey admitted that they had insulted foreign business partners because of insufficient knowledge of the English language, newspaper Aftenposten reported Wednesday. The survey, conducted by philologist Glenn Ole Hellekjær on behalf of The Norwegian Centre for Foreign Languages...
