The Best Link Today:

Um.  Yeah, this is our President.  Is this weird or what?  Apparently, D.C.'s top regional, the Washingtonian, actually put topless (okay, shirtless) Obama on their May cover.

Well, whether you think the cover is crass or bad-ass (had to rhyme–sorry!–too tired to be anything but punny), the truth is that it's a great marketing strategy for the publication, which is more often a resource for new local restaurants etc.  I mean, the print mags are sighing strained breaths right now, so–they do what they can, you know?

I guess what's weird about it to me is that I'm not sure I want to scrutinize his bod this way.  Like I'm not sure I want to wonder why he has zero body hair.  Like, please tell me that the Pres doesn't wax his chest, right?  Eek.  I don't even want to be thinking about this!  I don't even want to consider the fact that he wears those same lamo sunglasses that The Drewser sports against my repeated pleas.

Meanwhile, Obama is also planning a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, where he plans to flash more and be awarded the most beads EVER.

No.  That's not true.  But, I mean, it hardly seems far-fetched when he's being paparazzi stalked like so many starlets.  What's next?  An undie-free Britney/Hohan shot?  Ew.  I don't even like making that joke.  Shame on me.  And shame on all of you for reading that.


What do you guys think?
