On Thursday night President Obama made his second visit to “The Daily Show” since taking office. It was a busy night for the commander-in-chief: He was in New York City to attend the Al Smith Dinner, the traditional election-year fundraiser where the presidential candidates don their fanciest white-tie attire and politely roast each other. Maybe Obama was saving his best one-liners for that event, because his appearance on “The Daily Show” was noticeably absent of the personal-interest chit-chat that often characterizes political talk-show appearances.

In addition to the relentless onslaught of mostly negative ads from the Romney and Obama campaigns and their affiliated "super PACs," the good people of Ohio are finding themselves targeted by a right-wing conspiracy maven who is dispensing a DVD that pushes beyond the birthers into a new level of paranoid fantasy. "Dreams From My Real Father" is being sent to 1 million Ohio voters. The DVD makes the claim that, rather than being the son of a student from Kenya, the president was sired by a communist from Chicago named Frank Marshall Davis.

If the Barack Obama who showed up for the second presidential debate had shown up for the first debate, there is a good chance Republicans would now be sullenly turning their thoughts to 2016 and arguing over how they got tricked into nominating a loser two elections in a row. The Obama who did show up for that first debate breathed new life into Romney's candidacy by being lifeless himself. Tuesday night, though, the president was in command. He reinvigorated his own campaign by delivering the best debate performance of his political career.

Mitt Romney, you better redneck-ognize! Days after troubled starlet Linsday Lohan came out in favor of the Republican nominee , President Obama can now boast of his own dubious political endorsement. During a visit to “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday night, Alana Thompson, the pint-sized star of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” expressed her support for the incumbent president - or, as she called him, “Marack Obama.” To be fair, Alana didn't exactly volunteer her opinion; it took considerable prompting from Kimmel to get the aspiring beauty queen, who was joined by her mother, June Shannon, to weigh in on the election.

Thank goodness the Daily Caller has got some game for exposing conflicts of interest and really important stuff that other news sites are missing. The website known for saying that it has unearthed scandals said Wednesday it had unearthed the shocking news that the moderator of Thursday's vice presidential debate once had someone named Barry Obama as a guest at the first of her three weddings. Now most of us in the political press have become far too complacent to backtrack even one wedding into the past of the debate moderators.

Claire Danes made sure to thank her baby daddy Sunday night while accepting her Emmy for lead actress in a series. But when it comes to the actual child growing inside her, the “Homeland” actress isn't so sure her offspring will find her win all that exciting. “I think it's going to be some time before my child cares at all about this, if ever,” the 33-year-old actress, who plays a hyper-watchful CIA agent in the Showtime drama, told reporters backstage. Motioning to her baby bump, she added: “This person may not care, but I do.” Maybe POTUS does too?
