A Nigerian man was shot three times with an air pistol on a London street yesterday for wearing a t-shirt bearing the image of U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
Dube Egwuatu, 36, was at a cell phone store when the alleged gunman, a white man with a shaved head, confronted him and glared at the shirt, reports the Daily Mail newspaper. The man then began shouting racist slurs at Egwuatu, including “I f***ing hate n*****s,” and urged him to step outside. The alleged attacker eventually left the shop but was waiting for Egwuatu outside with “a threatening-looking dog and holding a gun behind his back,” the paper reported.

Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush

Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush

Kim Kardashian said she was only joking when she referred to her boyfriend Reggie Bush as “hubby” in a recent post on her Web site. The term sent rumors flying of a secret marriage between the socialite and the New Orleans Saints running back. But she clarified to WENN: “I said hubby as a joke. … He said, ‘Don’t use boyfriend, it’s so typical.’ He said, ‘Write hubby or baby.’ Everyone thought I was married.” Kim K. does admit that she’s hoping to get a marriage proposal from Reggie sometime in the near future: “We definitely make it work. … This is the first relationship I’ve been in with no trust issues.”

Sen. John McCain unveiled his plan today for dealing with the financial crisis as he competes with Sen. Barack Obama — and President Bush — for voters’ faith that he can best handle the economic threat. McCain released his economic recovery blueprint a day after his presidential rival Obama spelled out his proposals. McCain delivered his plan on the day that President Bush announced the federal government’s historic move to invest $250 billion directly into banks to prop up the credit market, the federal government’s largest bank intervention since the Depression, a move likely to steal much of the spotlight from McCain.

The Wednesday debate is growing in importance for McCain as he tries to reverse sliding poll numbers that have fellow Republicans openly worried. McCain got more bad news today in a series of surveys from four battleground states that the economic crisis has helped Obama solidify hefty leads. The polls by Quinnipiac University found that voters in those states had more confidence in Obama to understand and handle the economy than in McCain.

According to the Quinnipiac polls, Obama is beating McCain 52-43 in Colorado, 54-38 in Michigan, 51-40 in Minnesota and 54-37 in Wisconsin.
