President Barack Obama appeared on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon early this morning, taking part in the show's running bit called "slow jamming the news."

If you haven't seen it, the segment's name speaks for itself.

In front of a live college audience at the University of North Carolina, Obama talked about student loans while Fallon's house band the Roots jammed on a slow, sensual R&B beat, making the topic seem sexier than you ever thought possible:

With the rhythmic tunes accompanying him, Obama said, "What we said is simple: Now is not the time to make school more expensive for our young people."

Fallon then added (in his best Barry White voice), "Awww, yeah. You should listen to the president. Or as I like to call him, the Preezy of the United Steezy."

"Things are heating up inside Congress' chambers behind those closed doors."

We don't even know what that means, but the "POTUS with the most-est" needs to bring the Roots with him and deliver campaign speeches this way more often.

Mitt Romney wouldn't stand a chance.

President Barack Obama is probably not going to quit his day job (at least not for another year), but he did make a brief foray into R&B at a fundraiser last night.

The Commander-in-Chief burst into song while thanking Al Green, who had performed earlier at the same event, crooning a bar from "Let's Stay Together"

Obama then joked he hadn't been ushered off-stage. Watch:

It all happened at Manhattan's Apollo Theater late Thursday, when Obama stepped to the podium and veered from prepared remarks to thank Green.

Apparently not content to simply praise Green, Obama launched into "Let's Stay Together," warbling "I, so in love with you" ... complete with vibrato.

He stopped to laughter and applause, remarked that his staff didn't believe he'd do it, and that the Sandman hadn't come out to yank him outta there.

That would be Sandman Sims, a famous tap dancer who chased unpopular acts off-stage at the Apollo for decades. Sort of a Keyboard Cat predecessor.

Honest mistake or Freudian slip?

Sen. John McCain mixed up Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who he endorsed this week, in a campaign appearance on the latter's behalf.

Speaking on Romney's behalf in South Carolina, the 2008 GOP nominee opined that he has little doubt President Obama will get the country going again.

Pretty funny.

President Barack Obama blended his roles as dad and commander-in-chief on Christmas, spending time with his family and U.S. service members stationed in Hawaii.

Posing for a picture with the leader of the free world, one young American was far from intimidated. In fact, the youngster proceeded to maul the President's face!

No word on how the Secret Service handles situations like these, or if the little one was interrogated. Watch the amusing video of Obama and a hands-on baby below:

Chalk it up to East Coast bias? Not enough coffee? Sleeping through 9th grade geography?

Whatever the reason, the press corps traveling with President Obama on a campaign swing out west this week were given a map identifying Wyoming as Colorado.

The two rectangular states do look similar, but come on. Colorado is not only crucial to Obama's re-election, it's where he gave his '08 convention speech. Weak!

Colorado vs. Wyoming

Obama's three-day swing took him to Washington, California and Colorado, where he held public events and private fundraisers for his 2012 re-election bid.

Tuesday in Denver, an audience saw a speech on Obama's jobs program.

The larger point of the trip was to help Obama reconnect with voters and gain media coverage in Colorado, which is expected to be a swing state in 2012.

As for Wyoming, Obama lost by 32 PERCENT to John McCain in '08. Maybe subconsciously he blocked that out and forgot the state exists, resulting in this error.

Barack is dealing with a lot these days.

Trying to manage two wars, revive a stagnant economy, provide health care, reach a compromise over the federal debt ceiling and keep various factious of constituents happy regarding social issues is a balancing act, to be sure.

One he seems a bit overwhelmed by in this College Humor video, which uses a Fourth of July BBQ as a metaphor for President Obama's life ...

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson is one of many people seeking the Republican nomination for president in 2012, and his campaign is underway.

What better way to prep than by debating ... a Barack Obama impersonator?

Johnson recently appeared on Fox Business Network's "Media Matters for America," where host John Stossel moderated a debate between Johnson and a (pretty decent) President Obama impersonator, Reggie Brown ...

Very interesting. On one hand, Brown reiterates Obama talking points awfully well. On the other hand ... what the HELL goes on over at Fox News?

Their ticker gets hacked. They use photos of Tina Fey instead of Sarah Palin. They employ Sarah Palin. Now this, perhaps the most absurd of all.

Not that Gary Johnson is a serious candidate anyway, but how can anyone take him halfway seriously after this ridiculous debate with Faux-bama?

Seriously. We keep expecting to hear "Live From New York ..."

This is one of the best covers of Rebecca Black we've heard to date.

The youngster may not be pregnant, but she's given birth to a phenomenon - nay, a renewed sense of appreciation - every American can embrace.

Everybody is looking forward. To the weekend. Yeah. Partying. Yeah.

Words to live by if ever they existed. Listen to President Barack Obama get down on "Friday" with an assist from Vice President Joe Biden here:

You could call it a Rush to judgment. Eh, eh?

It was too easy: Some obscure blogger "unearths" some pages of President Obama's college thesis. A thesis with gems for the haters: Obama hates the Constitution, etc.

The report supposedly originated from Joe Klein of Time.

The author really was an obscure blogger, but one who wrote a satirical post about the thesis, citing Klein's "discovery." Rush Limbaugh went on to quote from the supposed thesis on his radio show, believing it was legit. That's a good satire.

In reality, the joke post, which claimed Klein had gotten his hands on 10 pages of student Obama's college thesis, was a total hoax and is not true in the least.

However, unlike Balloon Boy, it was not concocted in the hopes of this happening. And some will argue that it duped Rush and others because it's so realistic.

El Presidente

Rush Limbaugh got punked by a satirical blog purporting to have seen Barack Obama's college thesis. On a side note, Rush is an interesting name for such a large fella.

Believable or not, Rush was definitely had by the fake thesis.

Supposedly titled "Aristocracy Revisited," the faux thesis excerpt revealed the president had "doubts" about the "so-called founders" of our great country.

Juicy. Except not true.

Limbaugh discovered halfway through his show that he'd been had, but defended himself by saying, basically, the thesis felt true. That'll work for his "fans."

Joe Klein himself even jumped in, calling the report "nonsense" on his blog, and another blogger who thought the Obama thesis hoax was real also apologized.

For a humble post to go from an entry on a humor blog to major media outlet sure seems impressive. Someone ought to write a thesis or commentary on it.
