EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT

The Obama Girls of Comedy is in the news and raising awareness just like they said they would. We are not quite the Pittsburgh nutcase who beat herself up and carve a “B” in her face to prove her devotion to McCain. Our creativity only goes so far…

NORFOLK
Proof that no PR is bad PR, A Virginian-Pilot Douchebag, Malcolm Venable decided to review our press release. Everyone is entitled to their opinion until I found the article where he was unnecessarily hating on Terence Howard and his douche was clearly in the bag.

Some people think comedy is all glamour all the time.  Based on these pictures, those people are 100% correct:

BLOOMINGTON

After two packed shows at Bear’s Place, hanging with fellow New York comedian Amy Schumer at The Funny Bone:

CINCINNATI

Two fans identified only as “Obama Girls” delivered a box of brownies to us before the show.  Initially we thought they may have been a poisonous trick sent from the McCain campaign, but upon further inspection they were found to be totally yummy – and after the show we got to meet the lovely ladies who graciously gave them to us!

At karaoke after the show with our new friends Emily and Maiza.

Polling with My Homies

This Ride Be Pimped! Everyone Say "Ho

Recent Polls of the places we will be swinging in…the margins be looking mighty slim. So call your old friend Fratty McDouchebag back in Ohio and knock some sense into him. Just because he has a bad comb-over doesn’t mean he has to vote for McCain.

    Pennsylvania Obama 51/McCain 39
    Ohio Obama 48/McCain 49
    Indiana McCain 46/Obama 45
    Virginia Obama 45/McCain 48
    North Carolina McCain 47/Obama 50

WE WISH COULD GO TO BUT CAN’T … YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN

    Florida Obama 51, McCain 47
    Nevada Obama 51, McCain 47
    New Mexico Obama 49, McCain 44
    Colorado Obama 44, McCain 43

The Entire Tour E-Flyer

What’s At Stake?

For the past few months, I have been pulling out my calculator and playing the electoral game, it’s fun for the whole family. Even though Obama is pulling ahead, we need to be more than certain, which is why we are hitting the road. And note to New Hampshire: What the@#$%!!!!!  Live free or die, my ass. You either get with the New England Program or move to Utah.

 

 

Looking good for Obama but one can never be so sure.
