The Most Hilarious Cover-Up Ever

Iranian News Agency Adds Sleeves To Michelle Obama’s Oscars Gown

The saintly ayatollahs added a lot more than sleeves in order that the citizenry not be scandalized.

Apparently my invitation to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner got lost in the mail (again!) this year, but judging from these photos that I found on the internet, everybody had a wonderful time!

Michelle Obama is a crony of color says Malkin in her new book

Crossposted at Daily Kos

  Right wing hag Michelle Malkin, who posts on the racist, xenophobic website vdare.com, has written a new book through Regnery Publishing titled Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies.

   The following is an excerpt from pages 12-13 in her new book.

    But they are still in the minority. And there will be more predictable excuses. As I document in this book, Obama’s cronies of color (beginning with his own wife) reach for the race card when their dubious judgment is questioned. And when all else fails, there’s always the “I inherited the problem” alibi.

   To which I reply: Read the book. Barack Obama owns this cabinet of tax cheats, crooks, and cronies. It is his and his alone. In the era of “new politics,” judge him as you would judge other mere mortals. Judge him not by the company that preceded him.

Judge him by the company he keeps.

    First off, much of this diary is snark and satire, though the Malkin quote is real. Please understand that the proper way to knock this shit down is to call it what it is, and to deny the fact that Michelle Malkin is a despicable person is folly, in this diarist’s opinion. Strong language IS appropriate in circumstances such as these.

A hat tip to mediamatters.org, where I found this quote, and who really deserves any donations you can give them.

   Wow. Where do we begin in picking apart this dirty, lying POS.

   Michelle Malkin seems to believe she can roll a dildo in glitter and tell us it is actually a popsicle, and that should be enough for us to blow it as hard as she does.

   The point Michelle seems to make is to buy the book, and any other bullshit she could sell you if you let her.

   Words come to my mind.

   Words like racist, harpy and  Bush cheerleading jackass.

   Will someone tell Michelle she is NOT WHITE!

   Not that being white is an excuse. I guess being blue-blooded is.

Crunching Snap Peas from the White House Garden

There is something tangibly rewarding when after have put your hands in warm soil, planting for your own table, to being able to harvest bounty from the soil.  

Along with millions, tens of millions of others, my own gardening experience is reflected in a larger plot and on a much bigger stage as First Lady Michelle Obama pursues organic gardening on the White House lawn with the assistance of many, including students from a DC elementary school.

While there has been some 80 lbs harvested to date, some for White House meals but most for local food kitchens, yesterday The First Lady celebrated the end of the school year with Bancroft Elementary students with harvesting from the garden and eating an organic salad. And, they all literally had the fruits of their labors as “once kids finished their salads, they were rewarded with a cupcake topped with fresh garden berries”.

While it might be fun to get one’s hands dirty, rewarding to see the ‘fruits of one’s labor’ on the plate before you, and tasty to eat this fresh, pesticide-free food, this connects to larger issues.

Michelle: “It Hurts!!”, “It Hurts!!”

I went over to ABC News to see if they had posted a video report that I caught last night, never got to that as this is what I found, and will be airing this morning on GMA.

Exclusive: ‘It Hurts,’ Says First Lady of Military Families on Food Stamps

First lady Michelle Obama wants military families to know they have a friend in the White House, she told “Good Morning America’s” Robin Roberts in an exclusive interview today at Fort Bragg, N.C. — her first network television interview since her husband took office.

“It hurts. It hurts,” the first lady said of hearing about military families on food stamps. “These are people who are willing to send their loved ones off to, perhaps, give their lives — the ultimate sacrifice. But yet, they’re living back at home on food stamps. It’s not right, and it’s not where we should be as a nation.”

Behind the Scenes Photos of Obama on Election Night

The Obama campaign has updated their flickr account with behind-the-scenes photographs of Barack and his family on election night. These are intimate photographs of the senator as he shares the moments before he becomes the president-elect.

As The Guardian reports these pictures show the Obama family as their lives are changed forever.

He and his family can be seen, tensely watching television from a hotel room as the results gradually come in.

For a man known for his deep-seated calmness, the beautiful behind the scenes images, taken by his official campaign photographer, David Katz, show the anxious moments before the results are declared.

Michelle Obama – Military Spouses

In her campaign travels Michelle has been meeting with the Spouses of our Military Personal, holding round table discussions on what their experiances are and giving a window into one of her causes if Barack is Elected and she becomes the First Lady.

CBS has a couple of video’s of a recent interview done with Michelle, touching on a number of issues of who she is and what she does, there’s also a report that accompanies.

Every few weeks, Obama meets with military spouses in swing states, where she presents herself as a kindred spirit and Barack Obama as the best choice for their families. She attended the two debates with military family members. And at the Democratic National Convention, she led a day of service on behalf of Blue Star Families for Obama, a two-month old group with the tagline: “Pro-Military, Pro-Obama.”

We are all “working Americans”

I am growing tired of the television pundits referring to the backbone American families as “working class” rather than “middle class.”  I don’t know who came up with these distinctions, but they don’t seem to me to be accurate, and I think they work to divide this country in ways that it is not, economically speaking, divided.

If someone knows a (quote unquote) middle class family who is not working hard, please alert me.  I am not familiar with any such family.  We need to stop quaking to the Karl Rovian splinter politics — all middle class families are “working class” Americans because ALL of them work for their incomes.  It is time to remind everyone that the divide is not between some illusory group of “working class” Americans and “middle class” Americans, but, instead, between those whose incomes are derived from work and those whose incomes are derived from wealth.  Period.

Michelle Obama spoke movingly tonight about her family life; about growing up in a family whose father had a job with a public utility and whose mother stayed at home to raise the children.

Sen. Joe Biden – Dover Airbase – KIA’s

Back a few years ago I went Absolutely Livid, have many many……………….. times from the first beat of the War Drums, this time while watching the CBS ‘Face the Nation’ sunday show. While the blood had rushed to my head I waited, impatiently, for the transcript to come up on their site. When it finally did, I quickly copied and pasted it to an e-mail and sent it out, but that didn’t quell the Absolute Rage. I wanted more who hadn’t seen it to get as Pissed as myself so I tried thinking of online News outlets, some just coming into being, to further trying to get this report out to as many eyes and minds as possible, one was a fairly new outlet, the Huffington Post. A few hours later, to my surprise, and still Royally Pissed at what was reported, I receive an E from the Huffington Post that they were going to run with it, saw very little that day and ensuing days from the MSM about this incident as told by Senator Biden to Bob Schieffer.

Huffington posted it on June 20, 2005 at 10:11 PM {you gotta love google, I didn’t keep the story, but a quick search and there it was}

Obama Joins Nelly for “Tip Drill” Performance

(Cross-posted on Kos — with links)

Last night Barack Obama joined Hip Hop star Nelly in a performance of Tip Drill before 50,000 screaming fans at “Ho-Fest 2008” at Detroit’s Ford Field.

The high point of the night was when Obama invited his wife Michelle onstage and re-enacted the famous Tip Drill video.  The crowd went crazy as Michelle and Barack performed the hilarious credit card move.

The performance was immediately condemned by:

NBC, ABC, CBS the NY Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, CNN, FOX, Lifetime, Oxygen, Emily’s List, NOW, NARAL, PUMA, the Family Research Council,  the White Citizens Council, Focus on the Family, Family Circus, Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the United League of Purity Balls.



Abrams: McCain: “I really didn’t Love America, Until I was deprived of Her Company”

Developing on “ Verdict with Dan Abrams” tonight, Abrams and a panel are discussing (arguing) about some information about a remark that McCain has made several times:

“I really didn’t love America until I was deprived of Her company.”

The one quoted in the headline above has been repeated by McCain in various versions.
