The Year In Rightwing Media, Simplified

Time’s Zeke Miller tweetered this adorbs little photo from June as part of a year-end skim of the White House Flickr stream. Photographer Pete Souza’s note: “The President called me over to pose for a photo with a young boy who had fallen asleep during the Father’s Day ice cream social in the State Dining Room of the White House.” So it’s not hard to imagine how this pic might hit the world of rightwing media. Twitchy: “SNAP! Obama caught shaming small child forced to attend White House propaganda event” Gateway Pundit: “Typical: Obama inserts himself into other people’s Fathers’ Day celebration” Read more on The Year In Rightwing Media, Simplified…

So What Did Obama *Really* Sign Today, To Destroy America?

The White House rushed out a Flickr picture of Obama signing this awful thing, because everybody really wants that for their smartphone wallpaper or whatever, before they throw away the smartphone because who can afford such things? But what did the corporate shill really sign? A tipster sends us an enhancement of the photo above, which reveals this guy’s true feelings about us. (Hint: Are you a billionaire? Then Obama really thinks you’re swell. Are you, say, anyone else in America? He hates you.) Read more on So What Did Obama *Really* Sign Today, To Destroy America?…

Joe Biden Stuck At White House Returning Calls For Obama

So what’s Delaware Devil Joe Biden up to this week, while Barack and Michelle are rocking out with the Queen in England and crashing their limo into Ireland and pounding Guinness? Poor Joe is just stuck with a stack of Obama’s “while you were out” messages, and he’s got to call everybody back! Bummerz. Read more on Joe Biden Stuck At White House Returning Calls For Obama…

Barack Obama Hits Irish Pubs, Gets Raptured By Jesus

Remember when this website was all about Barack Obama? Whatever happened to that guy, anyway? According to these Flickr pictures that Michelle posted on the family’s Flickr site, the Obamas are currently in Ireland getting all bloated on Guinness. And who is that drunk on the right, Timothy Geithner perhaps? Maybe he is “fixing” the Irish economy too, hahahaha. (IRELAND: YOU CAN KEEP HIM!)

Here’s the Death-Stare Face Obama Made While Waiting Yesterday

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.)

Mitt Romney’s Flickr Alleges Oprah Is His ‘Half-Sister’

This strange image is on Mitt Romney’s Flickr. With no explanation. Is that a cue card? Who is telling the perfectly still nondescript Mormon to say that? Is it Joseph Smith? L. Ron Hubbard? Jared Loughner? Hey, maybe this election is going to be a contest after all, because who’s going to get Oprah’s endorsement, Obama or her half-sister, Mitt Romney?

President Obama Accidentally Washed Down Giant Drain

It’s not easy being the president during a sustained industrial/economic collapse! But Barack Obama bravely went to Willy Wonka’s munitions factory somewhere in Ohio or someplace, and then Barack Obama did a bad thing and tried the Every Flavor Dinner Gum, which includes “fried fat curds,” which are against Michelle Obama’s rules, so the crazy Koch Brother who thinks he’s Willy Wonka activated the Wingnuttia Brigade of slave-dwarves and poor Barry went down, down the drain.

Hey, Here Is a Photo of Obama Egypt Anti-American Groups Can Use!

Hey America, guess what your government did today? It sad idly while some security forces it funded in another country set their hoses on anti-dictatorship protesters who were praying. Yes, it appears that Egypt has gone to crap, and its authoritarian regime may soon crumble in the name of freedom. And where will the American president be in all of this? Standing next to that dictator, smiling, on millions of election posters for anti-American political parties very soon. There are many of these photos to choose from! Yes, the people of the Muslim world finally are standing up for themselves and for freedom, just like ol’ Georgey Bush wanted. But the United States of America is not joining them. Oh, there will be a “review” of our relations with this regime in “coming days,” according to Robert Gibbs. Hmm, too late? Decades too late, maybe?

Obama Drunk Dials John Boehner

When the war is over, in the wee small hours, when your tie is loosened and you just want to have a cigarette and bullshit on the phone with another brother who likes his smokes, that’s when you open the last bottle and put Kind of Blue on the stereo and accidentally call John Boehner, because your dumb intern put him in the Rolodex under “colored guys.” [White House Flickr/Pete Souza] Read more on Obama Drunk Dials John Boehner…

Everybody Doesn’t Love Obama Now

Bob Woodward’s new book, This Obama Guy Did 9/11, will be that thing everybody in Washington buys on Monday even though they read all the sad dirt today in the newspapers. Obama’s own supporters just bitched at him for 10 hours on Monday during a tragic town hall. The economy is probably going to be bad forever. This is why Barack Obama looks sad.

Socialist Practical Joker Puts Thumb (Foot) On Scale of Capitalism (Scale of People’s Weight)

President Barack Obama jokingly puts his toe on the scale as Trip Director Marvin Nicholson, unaware to the President’s action, weighs himself as the presidential entourage passed through the volleyball locker room at the University of Texas in Austin, Texas, Aug. 9, 2010. That’s your prez! Always with the jokes! (When he’s not GOLFING.) Nice catch, Souza.

White House Photo Website Implies Chuck Todd Is Plastic Water Bottle

Here is the actual caption to this official White House photograph by Pete Souza: “President Barack Obama is interviewed by Chuck Todd, of NBC News, at Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids, Mich., July 15, 2010.” Mmhmm, but we only see one person in this picture and it sure isn’t MSNBC poli-nerd Chuck Todd.

White House-BP Party Looks Like So Much Fun

Here’s Barack Obama and Tony Hayward and the rest of the sad BP people and bitter White House people sitting around sipping glasses of lukewarm vinegar ‘n tears, earlier today. People are usually really excited to go to the White House, even if they hate the president or whatever, but we’re pretty sure all these people just went back to their hotel and emptied the mini-bar and passed out on the floor, weeping. Oh, did you want more super-fun party pix? Read more on White House-BP Party Looks Like So Much Fun…

‘Not Half-Kenyan, Gov. Brewer … I’m Actually Half-Mexican’

Guess who’s coming to Cena? It’s anti-Mexican lady governor Jan Brewer, fresh from her family’s Time Machine Battles with Hitler! After enjoying a Taco-free lunch, Brewer told President Obama she’s sorry but she will need to see his papers to make sure he’s American. And whaddya know, he said he left his Birth Certificate on the Internet, in Hawaii. Awkward! Then she was sent to Gitmo, which is the white person pronunciation of Bahía de Guantánamo, the end.

Shameless Obama Practices ‘First Pitch’

The world’s most terrible criminal, Barack Obama, can’t even honor America when he throws the “first pitch” at the baseball game. Here is scandalous photographic evidence posted by the White House photographer on the White House Flickr website showing the war-crazed pacifist literally practicing for his first pitch at the Nationals’ game the other night. It says right in our Constitution somewhere that presidents shall not practice in any way before they make their dismal, lame-o first pitch.

Obama Explains To Stunned Bobby Jindal That Jesus Hasn’t Fixed Oil Spill

Obama Survives Scary Photo-Op With Scary Old Preacher

Why did Barack Obama stop by Billy Graham’s golden tent revival castle? Just tradition, we suppose. Graham somehow gets to hang out with presidents, and he has done so since the time of Harry S. Truman. Billy even got to play golf with the papist John F. Kennedy, who did not request the Southern Baptist evangelist’s “spiritual counsel.” Read more on Obama Survives Scary Photo-Op With Scary Old Preacher…
