Richard Hayes, a City of San Diego sanitation worker, is the unlikely star of new campaign commercial paid for by a labor group supporting President Obama.

The reason? His route includes Mitt Romney's $12 million La Jolla mansion.

Chavez says Obama would no doubt vote for him too, though.

Chavez and Obama

With both leaders in close reelection battles, some of which are unrigged, Chavez said, "I hope this doesn't harm Obama, but if I was from the United States, I'd vote for Obama."

The head of state first reached out to Obama in 2009 (above).

A news agency in Iran has published a report claiming that white, rural Americans would rather vote for its own head of state, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, than U.S. President Barack Obama.

Onion Obama Story

Quoting The Onion, Iranian news agency Fars (more like FARCE, are we right?!) cites a fake poll that says 77 percent would rather have a drink or watch sports with Ahmadinejad.
