I use Pinterest to bookmark images. I often want to save a pic or an image, and I don't want to download it or have it cluttering up my bookmarks, so I just pin it for later. For example if a good recipe has a photo, you can just browse through your recipes looking for something appetizing, then click on the photo to take you to the recipe. Kinda cool, but a not necessarily a globally useful idea.

This means Andrew Breitbart's corpse is automatically President and Obama gets locked in a room playing the Farmville theme for 108 straight hours.

Ann's is about 40% patriotic cakes.

Ann's House of Cakes

Michelle goes for the happy American family pics.

Make no mistake, there are plenty of moronic political images on Pinterest, too, as well as the comments that go along with them.

I presume this means that Todd Palin is automatically First Dude and Moochelle has to spend the rest of her working life in a Hostess factory packaging Twinkies.

WTF is Pinterest?

We do not allow nudity, hateful content, or content that encourages people to hurt themselves. If you find content that violates our Terms of Service or Acceptable Use Policy you can submit the content for review by pushing the "Report Content" link.

Ah so it's another one of those watered down versions of popular websites catering to people who are too easily offended to be on the internet in the first place. Those usually have tons of longevity. I look forward to never hearing about it again for the rest of my life after this story.

I'm so grateful that we'll soon have a first lady who actually cherishes her role as help-meet for her faithful husband, as he hearkens unto the word of the Lord. I feel so strongly that Pinterest is truly an inspired site, allowing creative people everywhere to share in the spirit of domestic happiness. I don't blame Michelle Obama completely for being so slow to come around- I doubt she's even had the chance to attend a homemaking meeting with her local ward- but I think her actions in the premortal life have gone a long way to determining her opportunities in this life. I know people can change- but if she and her husband were willing to sit on the fence while we valiantly fought against that one third who would cost us our agency, I think we know all we need to know about her spirit's approach to leadership.

The dispensation of the fullness of times is upon us, and with this sweet spirit Ann at his side, Mitt Romney will use the full power of the priesthood to save our constitution, which even now hangs by a thread. I bear my testimony to you that Pinterest is true, and that by abiding by its principles, we can continue in our eternal progression. I promise you that you too can know with certainty, if you ask earnestly, having faith in Christ, whether these things are not true. I say these things humbly in the name of our Lord, even Jesus Christ, Amen.

Pictures of cupcakes and other baked goods are hardly encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Doesn't that count as encouraging people to hurt themselves? "Go on...have another one with extra frosting....won't hurt you at all..."

OK. I read the article, then I read the thread, and I still don't understand WTF we're supposed to be talking about. Whoever greenlighted this crap needs a punch in the cooch.

Craptastic: OK. I read the article, then I read the thread, and I still don't understand WTF we're supposed to be talking about. Whoever greenlighted this crap needs a punch in the cooch.


There are two main avenues for discussion, depending on your political affiliation (because American politics requires you to have only one of two available positions):

1) Ann Romney is a good and true wife, the kind of person we want for out first lady. She cares about the home. She cares about her children. She knows where she belongs and is not afraid to embrace it. What America needs is a First Lady who understands her role is primarily is to be the wife of the president. Ann Romney has always known her duties as a wife, and she embraces them. Michelle Obama isn't really a good housewife. She just pretends to do it as political theater.

2) Michelle Obama is a woman who really cares about the world. She is very active in bring attention to the serious health problems out children have. Even though she is a lawyer (remember, she was assigned as mentor to Obama when he joined her law firm), she still is a caring mother and a fine wife. Because Pinterest is getting a broader base, she realizes it is now a good forum for reaching out the the American public to broaden her message about the need for proper nutrition for America's children. Ann Romney is a bored rich lady with no real interests of her own. Of course she has nothing better to do than to pin pictures of pretty cakes.

So, choose a side, and do not spare the bile.

Take every tumblr, meme aggregator and blog that you like and wrap them into a single website. Now sanitize that site so that your grandmother and that weird aunt (who says she isn't religious, but never swears for some reason) would love it.
 
2012-06-14 01:42:01 AM
Also: anyone who changes their vote based on which candidate's wife has the pinterest board that is most like you, should stab yourself in the goddamn face.

I busted out laughing when you mentioned Michelle's local ward. Are you a recovering Mormon? Because you nailed it.

I kinda liked the picture of M. Obama fartin' around in the garden.

They all have an air of "PR" but... A. Romney's? 40% patriotic cupcakes isn't an exaggeration. It's saccharin. Both literally and figuratively.

And tomorrow we will all forget about this.

DeaH: Michelle Obama isn't really a good housewife. She just pretends to do it as political theater.


I expect that there is some truth to this, in the same manner as Hillary Clinton played that role as political theater. I've always found this bit of theater rather sad and insulting to the spouses of presidents. I also suspect that when Obama is done being president (hopefully in 2016) Michelle can go back to kicking ass and taking names, as I expect that she is really good at that.
