President Obama ended his Reddit AMA with a “not bad,” a not-so-subtle nod to his very own rage comic, “Not Bad” face, forever securing that image in presidential history.

Stag Party:

The GOP’s woman problem is that it has a serious problem with women.

"It’s not news that the GOP is the anti-abortion party, that it panders to the religious right, and that it’s particularly dependent on white men with less education and less income—a displaced demographic that has been as threatened by the rise of the empowered modern woman as it has been by the cosmopolitan multiracial male elites symbolized by Barack Obama. That aggrieved class is, indeed, Santorum’s constituency. But, as Stephanopoulos was trying to get at when he challenged Romney, this new rush of anti-woman activity on the right isn’t coming exclusively from the Santorum crowd. It’s a phenomenon extending across the GOP. On March 1, every Republican in the Senate except the about-to-flee Olympia Snowe—that would be 45 in total—voted for the so-called Blunt Amendment, which would allow any employer with any undefined “moral” objection to veto any provision in health-care coverage, from birth control to mammograms to diabetes screening for women (or, for that matter, men) judged immorally overweight.

Obama’s pick for the World Bank, everybody

Jim Yong Kim, a Korean-American, is a fascinating choice for a few reasons. The Dartmouth College head is known for fighting for the health of the world’s poor, which automatically makes him an interesting choice to sort out the world’s money problems. But above is the real kicker: This guy knows how to rap like a spaceman or something. Which more of Obama’s appointee picks need to know how to do. We support this turn of events, Obama, and we think you should follow it up by making the next Supreme Court justice Numa Numa Guy.

If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.

…I can only imagine what these parents are going through. And when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids. Every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this and that everybody pulls together — federal, state and local — to figure out exactly how this tragedy happened.

President BARACK OBAMA, in his first remarks on the murder of Trayvon Martin.
