In Obama’s America, Thanksgiving Is Just Halloween Again, Forever

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Laugh it up, fuzzball.
Looks like the Wonkette photo desk was pretty much abandoned during your managing editor’s long absence, which basically means nobody was raiding the White House Flickr feed for easy comedy blog postings, so forgive us if we GO BACK IN TIME to a special day that is really every single day for all Americans forever: Halloween.

So, Barack’s mother-in-law is “dressed up” as a Gitmo prisoner. Michelle is what, maybe that crazy lady who urinated on the neighbor’s porch and scared the kids? Barry is dressed as … Harry Potter? Let’s say Harry Potter. Harry Potter and the Inappropriate Easter Basket. And then there’s his sidekick, Chewbacca — so maybe Obama is really “a gay child version of Lando Calrissian, forced by this stormtrooper to carry an Easter Basket, for Jesus.”

Party of Lincoln.
Every year at Halloween, the socialist president pulls out the rotting head of Abraham Lincoln so all the guests can laugh at the Father of Our Country. Okay, that’s enough Flickr Fun for now! Otherwise, we would need to come up with some explanation for this outrage. [White House Flickr]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Canmon (the Inadequate)

    I’m less concerned about his lack of a costume and more concerned with the way he’s holding that basket.

  • Dashboard_Buddha

    Wah..wah…look at all of the candy he took away from the American taxpayer!

  • Dashboard_Buddha

    [re=464816]Canmon (the Inadequate)[/re]: hey…yeah. Where’s the other part of the handle?

  • tootsieroll

    Alt text win!!! I’ve missed you Ken.

  • Snarkalicious

    [re=464816]Canmon (the Inadequate)[/re]: Looks awfully satisfied, doesn’t he?

  • SayItWithWookies

    In honor of Senator Byrd getting himself wheeled in to the Senate chamber this weekend to vote yes on moving healthcare reform forward, I will not be saying a damn thing about that second photo. But the grape lady is hot — all the more reason to be a vegetarian.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Meow, Michelle can scratch.

    I wonder who got stuck wearing the Wookie suit. I hope it was Geithner, but they probably made Stephen Chiu (Chewie, get it?) put it on.

  • Holding Out for a Hero

    “That’s ’cause White House Press Corp members don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.”

  • Extemporanus

    Wicca please!

  • The Cap&#39

    Michelle looks kind of annoyed that she went throught the trouble of putting on ears and Bary just put on a sweater.

  • Hooray For Anything

    Where’s the photo of Obama bowing in submission to the Imperial Storm Trooper?

  • SmutBoffin

    It is a period of civil war. Teabagger insurgents, striking from a hidden basement, have won their first victory against the evil socialist empire.

    I think that the Wookie is an illegal immigrant from…whereverthefuck wookies are from…that the president is letting stay in the Lincoln bedroom.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=464832]ManchuCandidate[/re]: So that’s why it was always up to Chewie to get the hyperdrive back on line—he’s a Nobel Prize-winning Chinese American atomic physicist.

    As Sully might say, New Hope!

  • lawrenceofthedesert

    I see they found Donald Rumsfeld’s mummified head where Cheney had stashed it.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    [laughing] Oh, Ms. Sophia Mr. Ken home, now! Mr. Ken home! Thing gonna be changing ’round here, pass me dem peas!

  • Extemporanus

    [re=464843]Hooray For Anything[/re]: “These aren’t the druids you’re looking for.”

  • magic titty

    Michelle was going as Josie & The Pussycats? Nostalgia WIN.

  • DoktorZoom

    [re=464843]Hooray For Anything[/re]: It’s even worse–Here is a picture of the Usurper bowing to a tiny child! Yet he is so horrified by his own act of submission (or by the fact that it is a tiny White Christian America-loving child) that he also covers his face with his hands.

    I weep for what our country has become, also.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=464855]magic titty[/re]: Oh — that explains why Obama is dressed as Archie.

  • freakishlystrong


  • chascates

    If only there were statues of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld. Truly frightening.

  • Brendan M.

    [re=464849]SmutBoffin[/re]: I know Wookiees are from Kashyyyk, though I can’t tell you exactly what part of Mexico that is.

  • JMP

    B. Obama may have been dressed as Harry Potter, but everyone thought he was Urkel. (See if anyone gets the reference).

    [re=464849]SmutBoffin[/re]: Kashyyck. That may be spelled wrong; but yes, I know it from memory.

  • TGY

    Stormtrooper Cheney, is that you?

  • SmutBoffin

    [re=464871]Brendan M.[/re]: Huh. Sounds Farsi to me. (CHEWY = IRANIAN?)

  • sezme

    “Barry is dressed as … Harry Potter?”

    Wrong. Barry is dressed as a storm trooper, Sasha is dressed as a wookie, and Malia is dressed as the president.

  • swgm

    Oh, well, that last one’s clearly a Maenad, Ken: the ancient Grecian bringer of booze and occasionally dismemberment.

  • Servo

    The Muslin Pagans loosen the Republic’s grip with 193% organic socialist snacks.

  • El Pinche

    Ooooh , this is too much for this ritalin kid. I’ll pass.

  • slappypaddy

  • problemwithcaring

    That bust of Mamie Eisenhower could really use some restoration.

  • Snarkalicious

    [re=464947]problemwithcaring[/re]: Nope. Bitch was a straight up Wookie.

  • Brendan M.

    [re=464872]JMP[/re]: NERD!

    [re=464885]SmutBoffin[/re]: I don’t know, does the Washington Post want to bomb Kashyyyk and torture Wookiees?

  • jseville

    That’s not a storm trooper, those are the new SS uniforms.

  • Joshua Norton

    Are they singing Xmas carols? If not, why not?

  • Darkness

    [re=464849]SmutBoffin[/re]: Kashyyyk, come on. Google fucking autocompleted the search. I bet you aren’t that lazy searching for the pr0ns.

  • The Unfairman

    Thank God Ken is back! 3 cheers for the return of alt. text!

  • Great Old Ones Party

    I’m not even going to bother Blinging this.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    All I can say is that having a hot First Lady has made me, for the first time, really proud of this country.

  • ElRat

    [re=464860]SayItWithWookies[/re]: I thought he was Ward Cleaver, go figure.

  • Sabre_Justice

    Great, so this President is just going to flat out start playing the Imperial March as his theme tune.
