Posted by  ▪  January 22, 2015

You might need to grab the Kleenex

I love, love, love when companies and brands go pro-Dad. Last year, Cheerios released a “How to Dad” series of ads that were adorable and quite perfect in their ability to silence the ridiculous “dumb Dad” meme. This year, one company has upped the ante on featuring fatherhood in its marketing….

Face-off over language and political correctness.

Big time trolling. And an election gift to Netanyahu.

Is there anyone who gets Obama more upset than Bibi Netanyahu? It’s not for nothing that unnamed senior administration officials called Netanyahu “chickenshit” and mocked Israel’s failure to attack Iran. There is no love lost in that relationship. Remember when Bibi lectured Obama in front of reporters in 2011, setting off a furious reaction? And…
