President Barack Obama pushed back Friday against the joke that he wears "mom jeans." "I look very sharp in jeans," he told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview.
"I've been unfairly maligned about my jeans," he said. "The truth is, generally, I look very sharp in jeans."
Obama claimed that the joke originated from the time he wore loose jeans to a baseball game: "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher's mound and didn't want to feel confined while I was pitching." more >>
Former GOP vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin predicted in 2008 that Russia might invade Ukraine if then-Sen. Barack Obama became president and "high-brow" Foreign Policy magazine mocked her for it.
But as concerns continue to mount over whether or not Russia intends to launch an assault on Ukraine's besieged new government, Palin is making no apology for her recent "Told-Ya-So" response to critics who dismissed her as a "stupid," "insipid woman" when she made the comments.
Mormon political pundit Glenn Beck, Hillsong pastor and anti-human trafficking activist Christine Caine, and the 40th president's adopted son and conservative columnist Michael Reagan will speak as part of Liberty University's spring convocation series.
Johnnie Moore, the Viriginia-based school's senior vice president of communications, said that the school annually offers dozens of prolific leaders in church, business, science and culture a platform to speak with young evangelicals.
"Liberty's convocation is the largest weekly gathering of Christian young people in America. There's no other environment where you can speak to more 18 to 22 year olds each week," Moore told The Christian Post. more >>

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin responded for the first time to MSNBC host Martin Bashir's statement that perhaps someone should poop and urinate in her mouth, calling his remarks "vile" and "evil" and saying she is not affected by them and God has blessed her with a platform to defend herself.
"When a conservative woman says something that they're -- they take offense, they usually just kind of pooh-pooh it, laugh it off; it's no big deal," the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee told Fox News host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."
Bashir's remarks followed Palin's speech comparing the national debt to slavery while promoting her book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas, at the annual Iowa Faith and Freedom Conference earlier this month. more >>
