Go Tell Mama Obama Show Announces Tour (#2)

I was able to see this show in both Raleigh, NC and Portland, OR and it is a great one. Looks like Ray (Noland) has added new prints that look fantastic.

GoTellMama! is pleased to announce the general election Got Next Tour 2008 Art Series. A Traveling Art Exhibition of Barack Obama inspired works with stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Austin, Atlanta, Chicago and New York. The tour begins in July and runs through October.

In celebration of the tour launch we've posted the NEW general election poster designs and are introducing the Got Next poster collection in the GTM store. Also, since you all love the Coast-to-Coast poster so much and the last three color version posted sold out in a day, we decided to print a few more. This time it's a four color design! Get yours today!

Stay tuned for up-coming San Francisco show details.

Colin Powell and Obama Met Secretly

Barack Obama and retired Gen. Colin Powell met privately two weeks ago in Powell's personal office in Alexandria.

Peggy Cifrino, Powell's spokeswoman, confirmed that the presumptive Democratic nominee and the retired chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff chatted June 18, one-on-one for about an hour at the Armed Forces Benefit Association, where Powell rents space.

"Just an informal conversation," Cifrino told On Call.

"There’s no looming endorsement," she added. "They came to talk about issues."

Obama's campaign declined to comment.


Obama Staff - Females Make Less than Males

I'm not sure if this is news or not, but NewsMax thinks so.

"While Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has vowed to make pay equity for women a top priority if elected president, an analysis of his Senate staff shows that women are outnumbered and out-paid by men.

That is in contrast to Republican presidential candidate John McCain's Senate office, where women, for the most part, out-rank and are paid more than men."

McCain Double Talk Express MSNBC Countdown Video

I rarely post anything NOT about Obama and VERY rarely about McCain, but I thought this was interesting about McCain's "flip-flops" (I hate that term) over the past couple of years leading up to his run for the presidency.

'The America We Love' Speech Full Transcript

The America We Love
Barack Obama
Independence, Missouri

On a spring morning in April of 1775, a simple band of colonists - farmers and merchants, blacksmiths and printers, men and boys - left their homes and families in Lexington and Concord to take up arms against the tyranny of an Empire. The odds against them were long and the risks enormous - for even if they survived the battle, any ultimate failure would bring charges of treason, and death by hanging. Full Transcipt Here

Obama Tiger Beat Magazine Cover

Onion - According to a poll released Monday by Teen Zogby!, both Barack Obama's approval and dreaminess ratings among slumber party–attending tweens have risen to 82 percent following last week's publication of the Tiger Beat cover pictorial "Hangin' With Barack!"

"Barack is sooooo hot!" said 12-year-old Tiger Beat subscriber Beth Majors upon reading the issue, which included a "supercute" poster of Obama leaning against the Lincoln Memorial and an interview in which he revealed that his most inspirational hero is "you." "He so totally has my support. Obama in '08!"

Obama is expected to remain a solid favorite with the giggling-and-talking-until-4 a.m. voting bloc, as hunky war hero John McCain, his closest contender, is widely considered by the slumber party demographic to be a gross dork.
