You a lie and a sack of dead toads if you try and say, this picture isn’t beautiful. I just get goosebumps looking at this lovely brown couple who are headed to the White House and there is no need to change the name to anything differently, the White House will do just fine.

Yes….I see brown people

Red Alert! Fist Bumps and Terrorists, Beware!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

An Internet search for terms “fist bump,” “pound,” “dap,” and “bumping fists” has revealed images of numerous athletes, celebrities, and politicians performing the same social gesticulation. Does Fox think any of the following might be terrorists?

Jealousy is so unattractive!

Michelle Obama will cohost The View on June 18th

Just in case you haven’t heard Mrs. Michelle Obama will sit at the round table with the Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, Joy Behar, Barbara Walters and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

I remember the day when Cindy McCain sat in with the ladies.  Everyone was really dressed and pressed not a wrinkle in sight. It reminded me of the times when your parents said, ‘We’ve got company coming, go take that off.”  It meant put your best clothes on.

Hasselbeck the most judgmental, holier than thou, holds most to a standard of impossible and the word forgiveness is only found in the dictionary, because it doesn’t appear to be a part of her repertoire.   And, before anyone can finish a complete sentence she’s on you like a pint size attack dog.  Barely able to contain herself – waiting to lash out and prove you wrong.

I don’t believe Elisabeth ever hears your complete thought though for she is too busy inside her head preparing her spiel to rip you a part. You say, tomato – I say, tomatoe – Hasselbeck is one of those types. Yet, the day Cindy McCain showed up she was glowing as if with child.

I have no love for Hasselbeck and when Senator Obama made an appearance, ‘Oh she was ready for him.’ Elisabeth thought she was a veteran journalist, possibly a foreign correspondent – “I’ll get him.” I think Barack found her rather amusing to be truthful. Sorta kinda in a way you pet a little puppy dog.

That was a mouthful for the only thing I really wanted to say, “If that little huzzy Elisabeth Hasselbeck disrespects Mrs. Michelle Obama in anyway she’s going to live to regret the day I was born.  And, I know that I am not the only one feeling this way.

I’m sure Walters and Bill Geddy have forewarned her.  Geddy has to answer those e-mails and Barbara is worried about her 11 years of The View going straight out the door – from boycott.  So this will be interesting to see, just how little Miss Muffet sitting on her throne will act – cordial – polite or the irritating little gnat that she’s famous for.

One Citizen from Daily Kos the Creator of Michelle Obama Torture Depiction

One Citizen has removed this illustration.

But here are Citizen’s word regarding his illustration.

“You have to admit that the sensationalist image snagged a lot more readers though. unrepentant. BTW I took that image down long before anyone realized it. I figured I’d take it down as soon a I hit a certain number of comments. I still think that it was entirely appropriate, historically accurate and politically relevant. Besides, it was an ILLUSTRATION, a FICTION not a PHOTO. I still don’t get what all the uproar was about mainly because only one person bothered to really articulate their feelings.”

Just in case you’re not knowledgeable about ‘Lynching’, read this

Nearly five thousand men and women were lynched in the American South in the years between Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Movement.  These black men and women were not slaves.  They were hardworking, taxpaying citizens of America who had been granted the right to vote and given equal protection of the law in the American Constitution.  Yet they were viciously murdered for tiny infractions of a racist social code.  These gruesome murders were carefully constructed to impact the entire community. The lynch mob not only killed its victim, it stripped whole communities of any sense of security, protection, or predictability… That such a horrifying imaging of Michelle could be deployed in her so-called-defense made me sad, angry and really very scared.  Melissa Harris-Lacewell, The Root.

Geesh, I need a bath after looking at that – feel like I was raped lynched and torture.

Never read the dude’s work but One Citizen can rest assure he has One less fan.
