Bob Bergdahl now tweeting for more Guantanamo releases

http://twitter.com/#!/bobbergdahl/status/473262108189003776

Only hours after appearing at a press conference to give thanks for the freeing of his POW son in exchange for five top Taliban leaders, Bob Bergdahl returned to Twitter to promote a Guardian video in which family members lobby for the release of five Tunisians held at Guantanamo Bay.

Earlier, Bergdahl had apparently deleted a tweet reading, “I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners.”

Lady Gaga: #IfObamaDontWin I’m leaving the planet

http://twitter.com/#!/ladygaga/status/244008730000252929

That planet? Lady Gaga didn’t build that. Obama made that happen … or he will when he loses the election in November.

The Mother Monster rarely tweets about politics, but she couldn’t resist after seeing President Obama speak at the DNC. And like Cher, she doesn’t even want to breathe the same air as Mitt Romney and his “tea bagger masters.”

@barakobama is killing his address right now. turn on c-span. the president is speaking

@BarackObama* typo

— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) September 7, 2012

that is a speech to be remembered.

— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) September 7, 2012

Fortunately, Luke Russert knows of an unstoppable rocket that can get her where she needs to go. Have meat dress, will travel?

Apparently she’ll have company on Planet Gaga.

@ladygaga THE MONSTER PLANET.

Toddler’s Lion Impression Isn’t Exactly Fierce, But It Is Incredibly Cute

Kids love to dress up like and imitate their favorite animals.

Personally, I loved to act like a peppy dog. It’s an adorable phenomenon, and the videos that pop up online after Halloween each year are too cute to handle. The video below, which shows a little tyke pretending to be a lion, is one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen.

Watch the cuteness that happens when the toddler’s parent tries to get their little lion to roar.

That’s okay, little one. You’ll grow up to be a big lion!

Hillary: ‘Talent is universal’; Chelsea shows absurdity is hereditary

http://twitter.com/#!/ScottLofquist/status/514527871679733760

The Clinton Global Initiative put two of the many women in Bill Clinton’s life on stage to talk about “Reimagining Impact,” whatever that means. Just pick two buzzwords out of a hat why don’t you. Dare to reimagine: Hillary Clinton offers ‘profound’ vision for leadership [Vine]

“Empowering women” was part of the discussion. Who better to talk about empowering women than a woman who rose to political power by riding her husband’s coattails and one who achieved immediate professional success by being their daughter?

Having traveled the world as Sec State, Hillary Clinton said she's learned that "talent is universal, but "opportunity is not."

— Peter Nicholas (@PeterNicholas3) September 23, 2014

Talent is not universal, no matter how many participation trophies you hand out. Hasn’t she heard of Nickelback?

@redsteeze Perfect reaction. Ne'er has a gif so well embodied a proper response as this.

@redsteeze See? Totally not out of touch. Same worries shared by working families, you guys.

— Archimedes Watts (@archimedeswatts) September 23, 2014

But let’s talk about empowering elephants, because it’s not as if African nations are facing any sort of other problems right now.

Clinton women on stage at CGI. Hillary and Chelsea spotlight plight of African elephants. The threat, Chelsea says, is "existential."

— Peter Nicholas (@PeterNicholas3) September 23, 2014

NY – Chelsea Clinton says she worries that her new baby could grow up in a world without African elephants.

— Peter Nicholas (@PeterNicholas3) September 23, 2014

@PeterNicholas3 @SouthernKeeks With the speed Ebola is now spreading, her child may have to grow up in a world without Africans….

— Bob (@Bob72270) September 23, 2014

I know how she feels. I'm devastated that I grew up in a world without Saber Toothed Tigers. @PeterNicholas3

— Wyatt's Torch (@TorchOWyatt) September 23, 2014

@georgejmichaels @PeterNicholas3 @WSJPolitics Very embarrassing. She should hope her baby grows up with freedoms.

@PeterNicholas3 This insight shows why NBC News paid her $26,724 per minute she was on the air.

That’s empowerment.

Sandra Fluke discusses ‘what moms really need this Mother’s Day’

http://twitter.com/#!/mchastain81/status/464832789548777472

“Free” birth control crusader Sandra Fluke announced an appearance on MSNBC where she’ll be informing viewers about exactly what “moms need” on Mother’s Day:

http://twitter.com/#!/SandraFluke/status/464830920235556864

Judging from some of the reaction, there are many who don’t require Fluke’s advice about what moms “really need” on Mother’s Day:

Woman who demands state-funded birth prevention speaks to what mothers "need".

Is this the advice Fluke is least likely to offer?

http://twitter.com/#!/SouthernKeeks/status/464835263131181057

That’s not likely to be Fluke’s focus.

Fun-size David Beckham underwear statues hit desks everywhere

http://twitter.com/#!/stefsmith30/status/235834690009964544

While H&M stores around the country prepare to unveil 10-foot-high statues of underwear-clad soccer star David Beckham this week, fashion editors and others are finding good things in small packages today.

This “home-game” version of the statue arrived at the New York Post’s offices this afternoon.

@stefsmith30 where is mine??? I even wrote about it today!!!
