It seems that chief Obama speechwriter Jon “The Groper” Favreau has found a love connection with Ali Campoverdi, a former lingerie model for Maxim magazine.  Where, you ask, did the frat-boy photo fondler meet such a hot babe with his busy schedule writing inspiring speeches for TelePrompter Jeebus?  It appears to be an office romance:

Feminist?

Feminist?

Ms Campoverdi is now an aide to a White House deputy chief of staff, American media outlets said.

But she has previously appeared American reality shows – including including the dating show For Love or Money, where she was a ‘million-dollar girl’.

The California native also appeared as a vampire hunted by Keanu Reeves in Constantine and was a finalist for the American version of The Apprentice with Donald Trump.

And we were worried that President Obama wasn’t hiring enough women.  I guess you just need to have the right assets.

More on Mr. Favreau’s work product from Sheryl Robinson at The New Agenda:

Given the mere eleven days between Gov. Palin’s arrival on the national scene and the comments by Obama, the lipstick and fish juxtaposition is simply too convenient—too elegant, one might say—to dismiss as a coincidence. Like the rabbit and caterpillar I used above, Obama’s references were intended to evoke a specific association for the listener—Governor Sarah Palin: a pig in lipstick, a smelly fish.

[…]

It was perfect—a work of art—and the idea that a skilled orator like Obama didn’t know what he was doing when he spoke those words is absurd.

Of course he knew.

Just like he knew what unconscious association he was evoking when he said, “I understand that Senator Clinton, periodically, when she’s feeling down, goes on the attack to boost her appeal.”

Hillary Clinton: hormonal harridan.

Perhaps Obama didn’t like doing it. Maybe he was advised to use these tactics, told, “This is what you have to do to win.” Maybe he didn’t write this stuff himself. Maybe Favreau wrote it, and maybe writing things that were deliberately intended to demean Senator Clinton shaped Favreau’s attitude toward her to such a degree that just days after Obama appointed her as Secretary of State, Favreau would take a cardboard cutout of the senator back to his place as a party prop and interact with it in ways that were intended to humiliate her.

That comes via Violet Socks, who adds:

It’s extraordinary: a campaign so relentlessly on-message and attentive to detail that they never even used Arial font when it was supposed to Gotham, not once, not even for a last-minute extra batch of signs.

And we’re supposed to believe that the sexism was an accident?

But what does she know?  She’s just a right-wing mole.

    wow, favreau must be really proud. doesn’t he ever think about the 26,234,798 men and boys in the world that have sexual fantasies about the woman he is dating. oh, yeah, i forgot, he’s not looking for a wife or lifetime companion or mother to his children. i get it. now i know how guys like him pick their playthings. i bet her mom and dad just cringe thinking about him dating their daughter. i know i sure would.
