i feel glad when barry’s glad

Washington Post: Barry Manilow is setting the record straight: He’s an Obama guy for 2012, not a Ron Paul-ite.

In Tuesday’s roundup of how the Celebrity Primary is shaping up, we cited Manilow’s vocal enthusiasm for the libertarian Republican. “I agree with just about everything [Paul] says,” the crooner told the Daily Caller in a widely-circulated interview. (Of course, the Internet seems to widely circulate pretty much anything about Ron Paul.)

Manilow wrote us a pleasant note to clarify:

“Although I agree with some of what Ron Paul says, I am not actually endorsing him in the 2012 presidential race, nor have I ever told anyone that I was.” Seems that while Manilow made an eye-catching $2,300 contribution to the Texas congressman’s 2008 campaign, he also — like many showbiz colleagues — sprinkled cash equally on Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton during the primary, plus $28,500 to the Obama Victory Fund. And he plans to vote for Obama next year. “He loves his president,” a rep said.

Thanks Hopefruit!

flashback …. what became of barry?

‘Scott & Barry, 3rd grade, 1969’

A former Manoa, Hawaii resident sent President Barack Obama an old photo of the two of them taken while they were third-grade classmates at Noelani Elementary School, requesting an autograph …. He received the autographed picture back, as well as a personally signed thank-you note.

Scott Inoue, now a chiropractor in Stockton, Calif., said the small, black-and-white photo had been stashed away for almost 40 years at his childhood home in Manoa. For some reason, Inoue said, as he was growing up he always remembered that photo and wondered what became of “Barry.”

barry from dc

Just like everybody else, “Barry from D.C.” called Va. Gov. Tim Kaine’s radio show to complain about traffic. But Barry from D.C. was really Pres. Barack Obama, who surprised Kaine with a call to his monthly show. (Dec. 22)
