America, this is just a guess, but it’s probably not a good idea to make Obama angry. “We’re gonna need a new vein!” — Obama’s face of death. This whole photo is pretty much the greatest picture of the century so far. Joe Biden is like, “Murhp?” And Hillary Clinton is like, “OMG!” (This is the caption that will be appear in history books, because history is written by the winners: teenagers who are popular.)

Jeez! You guy look like you're watching the last play of the Super Bowl! You know, something serious!
What’s that on Hillary’s computer? It’s blurred out. Most people would assume they’re classified photographs, but it’s just as likely it’s porn. Porn really calms the nerves when you have to answer that “3 am” call.

ANYWAY, as fun as this photo is, it’s fun to imagine other things they may have been watching yesterday:

  • Watching Obama try to beat the final level on Super Mario Brothers 2.
  • Finally catching the last episode of The Sopranos on Netflix.
  • Witnessing the sheer horror that is the “John McCain sex tape.”
  • Looking for just the right moment to interrupt Celebrity Apprentice.

Yeah, all of those seem to work just fine. [Flickr]

    I hear there is a martyr tape that Bin Laden made to be released after his death, on a golf course in Florida, at age 94.
    I can't wait for the blooper reel where Osama keeps accidentally referring to himself as Obama Bin Laden.

    Does Obama use that same face when the Bulls are losing too?

  • evan7257

    In my fantasy, Biden brought popcorn and raisinettes. Everyone watches the live feed in silence, suddenly interrupted by Biden mixing the candy into the popcorn. Hillary gives him the death stare, and so he offers her the bag.
    "Want some?"
    She keeps staring.
    "I'll have some," a random guy in the back says.
    "Oh no you won't!" she asserts.
    "Quiet, all of you!" Obama says sternly. "They're approaching the Tyrannosaur paddock.

        Seated, from left, are: Brigadier General Marshall B. “Brad” Webb, Assistant Commanding General, Joint Special Operations Command; Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough; Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. Standing, from left, are: Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; National Security Advisor Tom Donilon; Chief of Staff Bill Daley; Tony Binken, National Security Advisor to the Vice President; Audrey Tomason Director for Counterterrorism; John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism; and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

      Step 2 : While the POTUS is cracking wise at the podium, convince MO she should become Mrs. Just Pixelz.

      After seeing Obama's expression in this photo my new plan is to stay home and watch teevee.

    Do you think they actually invited Biden or did he just kinda wander in? Also, why is the room so damn small? You think they could assassinate people from somewhere besides a closet

    • Fifteen people eventually end up crowded in the room: Obama, Biden, Clinton, Riccardo, two chambermaids, an engineer, a manicurist, the engineer's assistant, a woman looking for her aunt Minnie, a cleaning lady and four stewards with food.

      The cleaning lady: "I come to mop up."
      Obama: "You'll have to start on the ceiling."

  • DustBowlBlues

    I go with the Celebrity Apprentice caption. Yeah, you fucking moran, Trump: you couldn't handle Hopey making fun of you at the dinner Saturday night. Fuck, you're such a pussy even Seth Meyers made steam come out of your ears. And that was what he did to you in public, you freak.

    Hint to Trump: do not let yourself get caught in a room alone with the prez. When you're summoned to the meeting, you step into the office and he nods at the Secret Service Agents, who step out of the room and shut the door behind them, BEG FOR MERCY. Or start saying your beads, or whatever. You are dead meant.

    • RavenRant

      If Obama ever has a conversation with Trump, he will be smiling and pleasant, and Trump won't get that he's been humorously eviscerated until hours, or even days, later.

        Kinda like the WHC Dinner?

        • RavenRant

          No, he definitely knew he was being eviscerated then. But only because of the mocking, uproarious laughter all around. I’m envisioning a one-on-one conversation, with PBO setting some deviously brilliant time bombs that will go off in Trump’s psyche when he least expects it. “Wait, what did he… Does that mean…? Something to wake him up at three in the morning for the rest of his unnatural life.

    I can't think of a calmer yet more bad-ass prez ever. I mean he must have known this huge shit was going down that could have wrecked his career, ruined the Dem party for 30 more years, gotten Pakistan civilians and SEALs killed if it turned into a usual rescue-mishap snafu/clusterfuck — all the time he was busting on Donald Trump & Fox News at the WH Correspondents Dinner etc.

    Repugs could never have ordered this hit — because they would be too frightened if it turned into the "Jimmy Carter Iran rescue" — and they couldn't control the narrative a la the spurious "Jen Lynch rescue" and "Pat Tillman hero."

    • genxr

        • That is definitely a Michael Corleone face. I just hope Biden has never been to a sex show in Havana with one of our enemies.

    • Gopherit

      Also, republicans would have been fapping furiously to their warporn.

    • BerkeleyBear

      I take issue only with the fact taht Tillman was a hero. The fact it was friendly fire he was trying to stop doesn't denigrate his efforts – just the trigger happy guys who didn't confirm their targets and the lying sacks of shit who tried to make it a damn Hollywood movie instead of a tragedy.

      Whole thing kinda makes me think back to the whole McCain "shut the campaign down" freakout and Obama's response that the President has to be able to handle more than one thing at once.

      • Well put, pedo, I mean, berkeleybear.

      • carlgt1

        oops – you're correct of course (I can't edit my original post due to the replies though)

        and per the second part of your post — I wish some poli-sci student would come up with a canonical list of all the dumbass stuff Obama had to monitor and attend to (birth certificate ad nauseum, Trump, WH Corr dinner, Breitbart & other attacks ie healthcare & economy etc) while he had to plan/monitor/worry about this serious shit.

        And then compare to the usual Repug "SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN AND FOCUS ON ONE THING" ie McCain's ploy you mention, the Terri Sciavo thing etc. It would hopefully put things into perspective – not that Obama is even Superman per se; just that any Repug counterpart you can think of is an absolute idiot.

    • Mort_Sinclair

      Perfect assessment. Thanks for that.

    • tessiee

    Guess what, folks. Bin Laden's death is being used to increase police state activities in the US.

    On Monday, the NYPD flooded the city’s subway system with additional cops. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, “out of an abundance of caution,” said it has added more police at airports, the George Washington Bridge and ground zero, according to NBC New York.

    Amtrak has dispatched canine teams and squads of officers trained to detect the presence of fumes left behind after someone passes through with an explosive device, the San Francisco Chronicle reports this morning.

    In Los Angeles, police have begun increasing patrols of religious institutions and other potential terrorist targets, according to Politico.

    The government insists the unverified assassination will increase terror attacks and it must redouble its efforts against al-Qaeda, the terror group named after the Mujahideen database.

    • 1) Obama says we'll be on heightened alert for a while.
      2) Police activity suggests we may be on heightened alert.
      3) ????????
      4) PROFIT!

      And your point is? Worried about assault on civil liberties? The dogs are too late — that train has already left the station.

      • Gopherit

        Seriously. This morning, someone i know said "we're Americans! We don't assassinate for justice!" All I could think was where the fuck had they been? Posse Comitatus was already judged to be quaint but useless. We are in the world of Gitmo, Abu Garaib, warrantless wiretapping, and the poorly named "Patriot" act. You're going to complain now?

    • Gopherit

      In the immortal words of our master Ken Layne and Stripes: Lighten up, Francis.

    • tessiee

      I see your point, but some sort of backlash isn't impossible.

  • Native_of_SL_UT

    Wow, those guys are really serious about the NFL draft aren't they?

  • gef05

    Oh! The dude on the far-left of the photograph. I remember him!

    (no i don't)

  • fuflans

    yeah, but did he cut taxes yet?

  • undeterredbyreality

    Looks like Obama's hogging the couch (again). Who does he think he is?

    • Doktor Zoom

      That's not his couch–that's THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS' COUCH, and he just DOESN'T GET IT!!!! NEVER HAVE I BEEN SO ASHAMED OF WHAT HAS BECOME OF OUR ONCE-GREAT NATION!!!! (insert weeping eagle pic)

    • Thurman Munster IV

      Plus he's got the remote. Guys never let the girl hold the remote

  • Extemporanus

    That ain't porn on Hillary's computer, that's her lunch.

  • axmxz

    It's interesting how you can tell he's the boss in the room despite his sitting in the corner dressed like he came to change the lightbulbs.

    • MaxUdargo

      He's the only one who has any space around him. I think that's a big non-verbal clue.

      Or is that his detachable knee taking up a seat in front of him? And what is that at Biden's elbow? Did he bring a bag of popcorn? Biden!

  • Thurman Munster IV

    It's obviously his "O" face as in Oh fuck I killed Osama

  • comptoneffect

    Why the hell is the POTUS jammed in the corner of his death chamber? Shouldn’t he be sitting in a Capt. Kirk-like command chair (with buttons and stuff) in the middle of the room? Looks like he showed up late and got the wobbly chair.

    • Extemporanus

      He's losing his religion.

      • OhNoGuy

        Look under the cushions. Maybe it's there with Bush's lost wars

    • emmelemm

      Love that image. (The one where he's in the captain's chair, that is.)

  • johnnymeatworth

    Wow, they did NOT like Transformers II….

    • Doktor Zoom

      To be fair, only complete idiots did.

  • Mark my words, that photo will be used from now 'til Election Day to scare the bejeezus out of White Olds in campaign ads. Some versions will 'shop him crouching at the foot of their granddaughters' beds.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      They'll photoshop that head onto the body of Ken Norton as he's getting ready to tear it up with Susan George, as per the movie poster for "Mandingo."

  • Sassomatic

    Hillary just accidentally forwarded that "Obama family as apes" email to Obama's Blackberry.

    I actually thought they were watching Kate Middleton step out of the car.

  • smitallica

    There is not a single Holy Bible or image of Jesus visible in the entire photo. These people make me SICK!

    • emmelemm

      Not even a flag… although the photo might be cropped a little bit on the edges, so it could be there somewhere.

  • Poindexter718

    This is actually a week-old pic of the White House's weekly Mass Wonkette-Read. They just got to Jack's post about Trig.

    Now that we've eliminated Bin Laden, can we please take on Breitbart?

    I want that sniveling, lying bitch to be every bit as popular as pariah John Edwards. (Edwards hasn't been a guest on Real Time recently, has he?)

  • DashboardBuddha

    I have to say, given the many disappointments Barry has served up, I have to admire him. I was listening to a pretty detailed report on NPR this evening and even though they had as solid of intelligence they could have, they still didn't know if OBL was actually there. If this picture is any indication, he seems to take ordering people into harm's way seriously.

  • Nopantsmcgee

    "This is the caption that will be appear in history books"

    Not in Texas.

    • RavenRant

      Course not. No caption, no photo. They need more room for the 1001 contributions to Murka by the blessed Phyllis Schlafly.

    • tessiee

      Texas will figure out a way to leave President Obama out of the history books entirely.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    Wow, when you get up into these paygrades the fucking general has to do the slides on the Power Point presentation? Unreal.

    • berkeleyfarm

      Pretty impressive, yes.

  • I'm fine with this guy answering the phone at 3am, Hillz. I see this surprises you…?

    I love that man.

  • widget2011

    I think they're watching "Freak that shit Tyrone".

  • notreelyhelping

    He's been saving the "furious black dude" face for the perfect moment. Well played. Mitch Daniels can't stop looking at that picture and I thinking, well, uh…maybe that election thing would be hard on the family.

  • voodooeconomics

    Send in the geek squad to tidy up all those laptop cables running all over the place.
    Another odd thing; Does Joey B. knows how to operate the machine in front of him.

    • berkeleyfarm

      I am the Geek Squad at my job and that amused me mightily. Looks like someone planned the room with something resembling enough plugs!

    I imagine there are some mechanics cleaning bathrooms about now. Sounds like they had a contingency plan this time, though.

  • DahBoner

    Damn! Obama looks like he's gelling with those shoe insoles.

    Outrageous comfort!

  • MozakiBlocks

    So I read somewhere that when the helicopter failed and had to set down, them Seal Team Six fellas kept to the mission not knowing if "they'd have a ride home".

    Badass muthers. Imangine you've just double-tapped the big bad and are stuck in the middle of Clusterfuckistan not knowing whether the next person you see is going to be friend or foe.

    • Gopherit

      They are the elite of the SEALs. I don't know if there's a size of pant that could hold the load i would shit if they were after me.

      But i still wouldn't grab one of my wives as a shield. cowardly motherfucker.

  • HistoriCat

    No shit – with that look you don't need to bring out a shotgun or casually mention the Secret Service. That's a look which inspires boyfriends to get you home a half hour early, just in case there's traffic.

  • Schmannnity

    How about a fucking blazer for God's sake if you know a) there's a camera and b) it might be a little historic?

    • RavenRant

      At least he's not wearing the mom jeans, as far as we can tell.

  • Indeed, Obama's Bob Oppenheimer A-bomb Sanskrit-quote-moment is writ large on his Yes-I-Did! visage. The majesty. The power. The coming glory.

    Fruit Salad fellow next to him is the only Mac user in the room (direct clouding to Julian A).

    Mike 'You-Guys-Want-Anything?' Mullen's ready to go for beverages.

    Youngish New Frontier guy in the blue shirt to the right of Fruit Salad's dreaming of Whole Foods opportunities in newly-discovered Abbottabad, perhaps in a possible suburb of Costelloabad.

    Howie Mandel just asked, "Deal? … or No Deal?"

  • Mort_Sinclair

    You know, that pic of Obama is, kidding aside, stunning. No makeup for camera, no perfect suit & tie, just a 50-ish black guy in a windbreaker trying to make it through an unimaginably defining moment in his life and his nation's history. The fallout from failure would be catastrophic; the reverberations of success unpredictable.

    If you're trying to imply pierced nipples, those are probably around navel level by now.
