Another F-bomb

When I think of Samuel L. Jackson, I think of "Pulp Fiction" and "Snakes on a Plane." But more and more, he's becoming my go-to guy for all things f-bombs.

The New York Post reports that Jackson will "film a provocative spot supporting President Obama’s re-election bid as early as tomorrow — telling voters to 'Wake the f--k up, Vote for Obama.'"

Jackson made waves when he released a viral video of “Go the F--k to Sleep" -- so this kind of fits in with his whole theme.

"It’s paid for by the Jewish Council for Education and Research Super PAC — which earlier this summer aired an ad of comedian Sarah Silverman offering 'free lesbian sex' to billionaire Sheldon Adelson if he stopped supporting GOP nominee Mitt Romney," the Post's Tara Palmeri reports.

Expect the new vid to appear on YouTube around September 24.

Liar, Liar, debate on fire

In an interview with ABC News, Mitt Romney said Obama will likely lie in the presidential debates come October.

"I think the challenge that I'll have in the debate is that the president tends to, how shall I say it, to say things that aren't true," Romney said. "Am I going to spend my time correcting things that aren't quite accurate? Or am I going to spend my time talking about the things I want to talk about?' That's a judgment you make."

Obama to ABC News: "Let's face it. You know, a mixed kid from Hawaii born to a single mom is not likely to become president of the United States. ... You know, a little black girl from South Side of Chicago whose mom's a secretary and dad's a blue-collar worker, you know, not likely to become first lady of the United States."

Former GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman on MSNBC's "Morning Joe": "I failed, as my daughter tells me time and time again, so I'm not in a position to offer any kind of advice [to Romney]."
