ManateeGag: does anyone on that network do any fark research before they speak?
Snapper Carr: As someone who, by and large has been supportive of Obama, I kind of rolled my eyes when she popped up at the Oscars. However, it drove the right wingers totally nuts so I hope to see much more of this sort of thing over the next few years.Why stop at the Obamas as presenters? Does the President sing in the shower? Record that shiat, get Alison Krause and her band to lay down a backing track, give it to T. Bone Burnett to produce and enter it into the CMA's (for full effect it has to be the CMA's).Malia's creative writing assignment? Hire Cormac McCarthy to flesh it out, publish it and get it shortlisted for the Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes. Once it wins there, get the Coens to shoot the adapted screenplay and you have another Oscar win for the Obamas.Enough of this sort of thing and I figure at least a few thousand teabaggers will drop from rage induced cerebral aneurysms.
rumpelstiltskin: By all accounts, Laura Bush was a fine First Lady. Too bad she came with George.
Sgt Otter: ReverendJasen: zetar: "The hypocrisy of having a black 1st lady present the award for best picture when the category included the film Django Unchained is staggering even for the fascists in Hollywood. "Whaaa? I don't even understand what that means. What a tangled mess that freeper's mind must be to come up with that illogic.Yeah, I've gone over it in my head, and have no idea what the hell it means.1. Django Unchained portrayed slavery in a negative light.2. The Academy recognized it as Best Picture.3. The first black First Lady presented the Oscar for Best Picture.4. ???5. Hollywood is full of hypocritical fascists, because of 1 - 3.
Mithiwithi: In some seriousness, I remember that there was occasionally a thing to make "Stepford Wife" references in relation to Laura Bush. I always found it puerile, but I never spoke up about it. Maybe I should have.I don't recall libs mocking Laura Bush in any other way, though - certainly not the kind of heat Michelle Obama has drawn. Lots of pointing and laughing at the daughters when they got in trouble, though.
Orange-Pippin: ITGreen: Orange-Pippin: Delay: Unlike Laura Bush, Michelle Obama never went on TV and told how she killed a guy.Wat. Is this a meme I missed?Laura Bush Killed a GuyThanks for the link!Wow. I hope that was satire:FTASo, technically, Laura Bush did not kill a man. Laura Welch killed a man....And if one wishes to get even more technical, the guy Laura Welch killed driving the other vehicle wasn't a man, either. He was a 17-year-old guy named Michael Douglas.
nevirus: Corvus: Things Republicans complain about Obama under Obama administration:Taking vacations
ManRay: I don't care that she was on the Oscar telecast.I do think it's weird it would not have happened if not for a big donor setting it up. Or at least, that would have been kept quiet more.
