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.

Slight problem: The report was by the Onion.

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.

A made-up West Virginia resident is quoted as saying: "I like him better."

President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are vying to spend the next four years in the White House. Current polls show a very close race shaping up for November 6.

We ask your opinion all the time on who should win the 2012 presidential election. But today, thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, we're asking ... who would win a scare-off?!

Last night, the talk-show host discussed the sales of the respective candidates' Halloween masks, pointing out that Obama was clobbering Romney in costume sales.

Kimmel then decided to find out which would scare his security guard Adelina more. Hilarious:

Samuel L. Jackson wants America to wake the f--k up and re-elect President Barack Obama.

In a new viral ad, he conveys this dream as only he can ... with massive amounts of profanity.

Wake the F--k Up is a Dr. Seuss-style rhyme, written by Adam Mansbach, author of the children's book Go the F--k to Sleep (which Jackson also read aloud at one point).

Wake the F--k Up features Jackson and a little girl urging the rest of her family to vote for Obama. Same excerpts from the ad, produced by a liberal super PAC supporting Obama:

Mitt Romney's most effective campaign surrogate stopped by The Tonight Show Tuesday.

Ann Romney, the wife of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, made her late-night debut on Jay Leno's couch, advocating for her husband and sharing the requisite funny anecdotes, like this one:

Ann Romney proved herself to be a compelling proxy for Mitt, even if she steered clear of actual policy, when Leno asked for her thoughts on the now-infamous 47 percent video.

A video depicting a young woman registering voters in El Paso County, Colo., claiming she works for the clerk's office but only registering voters who support Mitt Romney, has gone viral.

The person recording the video outside a Safeway grocery store speaks to the young woman who is registering voters outside. She asks, "Are you voting for Romney or Obama?"

Madonna certainly keeps things lively. At her concert in D.C. this week, she discussed how amazing it is that we have a "black Muslim in the White House" who's for gay rights.

This is a supporter of the President who rocks an Obama tattoo.

It's possible, even likely, that Madonna was mocking those who actually think Barack Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya. Then again, birthers aren't known to appreciate irony.

Better (or worse) yet? Madonna promised to get nude if Obama wins in November! Somewhere, Mitt Romney is getting ready to send out a fundraising appeal with this clip.

(To the 53 percent.)

From leading the free world at the United Nations General Assembly to leading a political discussion on The View, President Barack Obama had quite an eventful day.

He and First Lady Michelle Obama sat down with the ABC show's panel today and contrasted his and challenger Mitt Romney's differing views on tax policy:

This is an election year? Who knew. The ladies of The View also asked he thinks the country would fare if Republican opponent Romney were actually elected.

Mitt Romney gave the Internets another chuckle Monday with (possibly sarcastic) comments that appeared to show the GOP presidential candidate confused by the physics of aviation.

After his wife, Ann Romney, was forced to make an emergency landing last weekend, Mitt was worried because “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly."

Romney said the biggest problem in a distressed aircraft is that "the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous."

Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann Romney, released their 2011 tax returns today. Spoiler alerts: They're still really rich, and Democrats will call for him to release more!

They paid $1.94 million in federal income taxes on income of $13.7 million, most of it from investments, for an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent, his campaign said.

That's slightly above the 13.9 percent rate the couple paid for 2010.

Mitt Romney Wins Primary

The Republican presidential candidate's taxes have emerged as an ongoing issue in the 2012 election, as he has declined to release any returns filed before 2010.

Romney's fortune and association with Bain Capital, the private equity firm he co-founded, have been lightning rods in his bid to unseat President Barack Obama.

Critics, including Obama, have urged Romney to release more than just the two years of returns; for whatever reason, he has indicated he does not plan to do so.

It's been kind of a tough week for Mitt, with his 47 percent comment going viral, and even a surprising story about his eldest son Tagg Romney emerging today.

What do you think? Should he release more tax returns?

Eddie Vedder clearly thinks you can't find a better man than Barack Obama for President ... or at least that he's a better man for the job than Mitt Romney.

Performing a set of songs at a campaign fundraiser for Obama in South Tampa last night, the Pearl Jam frontman bashed Romney's 47 percent comments.

"It's very upsetting to hear a presidential candidate be so easily dismissive of such a ginormous amount of the population," Vedder told the audience.

Vedder and Obama

Vedder helped raise $1.7 million Thursday for Obama's reelection campaign, playing four songs for the president and 85 guests at a $20,000-per-person dinner.

"I can't say I've ever played that many songs in a suit before," he said of "Rise," "Without You," James Taylor's "Millworker" and Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World."

He recalled signing up for a government security guard training program, working the midnight shift and becoming a security supervisor at a petroleum company.

It was this, he said, that made his dreams reality.

"I'm an example of someone who never made it to university," Vedder said. "I did have this dream to be a musician. I felt that this dream had an expiration date."
