Page 1 Consider (02/27)

  • A Fine Bromance: Male bonding films are so 2007. But Paul Rudd's "character" in a yellow Speedo may be the just the way to get my ass into the theater to see his latest, "I Love You, Man." In it, Rudd plays a friendless groom-to-be whose fiance (Rashida Jones of "The Office") pushes him to go on "man dates" so he will have a best man at their wedding. (PeterKlaven)

  • Obama Swings Gay: President Barack Obama has selected a senior researcher from Georgetown University to direct his Office of National AIDS Policy, the White House announced Thursday. Jeffrey S. Crowley, who is gay, will lead an office tasked with coordinating government efforts to reduce HIV infection in the U.S. and leading treatment of Americans with HIV/AIDS. (AP)

  • Touchdown! Tom Brady and Gisele B√ľndchen quietly got married in a small, private ceremony in Santa Monica, Calif., on Thursday. (People)

  • Grand Old Party: Gail Collins hits the nail on the head with the GOP (non) strategy for the next four years: The Republicans can’t try to convince the country their ideas are better because of that intellectual bankruptcy problem. All they can do is make Barack Obama’s programs look feckless, plunging everyone into so much despair that by next summer the public will be ready to go live in caves and eat squirrel stew. (NYT)

  • Liar, Liar: Despite what Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller may be trying to tell you, President Obama did NOT support Proposition 8. (MediaMatters)

  • It's Hard Out There for a Sophomore: A 15-year-old schoolgirl makes nearly $150K a year as high-class hooker. (NYDN)

  • Marriage Equality: Kate Kendell and Eva Jefferson Paterson write as we seek to overturn Prop 8, we have the broadest array of support ever seen on an LGBT issue before any California Court. (365Gay)

  • Me and Mrs. O.: At home with Michelle Obama, already my favorite first lady since Jackie Kennedy, who is as frugal as she is fashionable. (People)

    Holy shit! Did Paul Rudd have his face photoshopped onto someone else's body, or has he just undergone a complete body makeover?

    I love Paul Rudd, and think he's totally hot (as evidenced in this picture). But yeah, I kind of think that's not his body. Not that I'm complaining, but the real Paul is nothing to sneeze at.

    I think I saw that yellow sofa on an episode of "The Ropers."

    The GOP seems ripe for a new leader to take it over and move it in a different direction. Don't get excited. It could be an even worse direction.
