Morning Coffee: 1.22.09

Meet your new Belvedere Vodka spokesman…Young Jeezy! Shot by Terry Richardson in a politically themed campaign, we guess that they were playing “My President Is Black” while shooting.  Do we like? Jamie Foxx (Belve’s former resident black vodka guy) is somewhere mad right now. {WH}

Caroline Kennedy is dropping her bid to replace Hillary Clinton in the NY Senate, citing concerns over her uncles health. NY Governor David Patterson is somewhere letting out a long sigh of relief. {NYTimes}

Oh Sarah Palin. Girl. Don’t you know you are supposed to be in Alaska, trying to run the state and see if you can still “see Russia from your house” instead of attacking the media for talking about your kids….the ones you dragged around the country when you were running for Vice President? {HuffPo}

Another great effect of the Obama administration? The changing perception of the black family. They are like the Huxtables, but without that oh-so-unreal Brooklyn brownstone. I still bet you that Michelle has the same ‘do rag from Chicago. Real Talk.  {CNN}

Sorry ladies for the late coffee…we are still getting back on track after recovering from one hell of a weekend! (agreed- Steels! =0)
