The Ultimate Eastwooding: Empty Lincoln Memorial Chair Becomes Barack Obama’s Monument in Washington
It’s sick, I know, but just you wait — unless Republicans are smart and run a black candidate for President like Allen West or Mia Long in the next 20 years or so, the Left will demand a grandiose monument to Barack Obama in coming decades smack dab in the middle of the National Mall. My gut tells me they will get all of the restrictions waived and Obama’s Monument will ultimately be placed on the other side of the Washington Monument from the WWII Memorial. They’ll try to make it something outrageous too — like a pyramid or a giant sphinx.
How about just an empty chair?
The one in the Lincoln Memorial is pretty sturdy and well-made.
Just copy that, enlarge it to the size of Obama’s ego…and VOILA! the perfect memorial to four years of American history that everyone would just as soon forget!
PS — I don’t care if this is somewhat random to this post, but there’s a great article today by Timothy P. Carney about how Obama lies all the time and the media lets him get away with it. He really goes right for the throat of all of these people and makes them all look as stupid as they truly are. It’s quite wonderful. I laughed and laughed and nodded my head all through it. It is almost as accurate and comical as Clint Eastwood’s same effort to make this sort of point about how empty this president is and how the corrupt media just keeps covering for him.
….and proud of her country every day of her life, now and forever.
Nancy Reagan’s favorite shade of red looks wonderful on our next First Lady.
Genuinely grateful to be there.
Happy to serve the American people in any capacity she can.
Helluva entrance into the hearts of America, Ann!
[ Click to embiggen — Mitt and Ann back in the day. As much as I resisted his nomination, I have to say I see what Ann saw in the guy back then. She’s not too hard on the eyes herself ]
As of this posting, I know almost nothing about Ann Romney and I’m someone who follows American politics closely.
I know she’s a blonde lady, has a nice smile, and gave birth to five sons. She’s from Utah, I think, and met Mitt in college (maybe).
Aside from that, she’s a blank slate to me.
What do you know about her?
Can anyone provide a link to some good bios on Ann?
First Ladies have always been a point of interest for me. I enjoy reading about them, especially the ones who rose to the occasion and contributed something enormous to American history. None of them were elected to their positions and some served reluctantly if not unwillingly. I think each is fascinating in her own way.
Ann will be the first First Lady who was a complete stranger to me before her husband was nominated for President for the entirety of my life (since I was born in the Ford administration and was aware of who Nancy Reagan was when I was in kindergarten because I’d watched her in old movies my grandmother had on TV). Barbra Bush was the Vice President’s wife to me when George Sr. ran in 1988. I had actually studied Hillary Clinton for a school report in 1990 on her nutrition-in-public-school initiative as First Lady of Arkansas. I knew of Laura Bush as the First Lady of Texas…and I’d actually encountered Michelle Obama here in Chicago and have friends who worked with her in the City of Chicago’s offices (who report she was rude and spoiled even back then).
But I know nothing of Ann Romney.
Tonight and tomorrow I want to correct that…and hope you’ll chime in with what you know below.
[ Click above to embiggen: Another good question is, “Which of these women do you think actually regularly makes cookies and which one only eats the ones the other people made for her?”. Or, as Barack Obama would say, “You didn’t bake that!” ]
There are a lot of quirky presidential race “predictors” out there, but my two favorites every election season are the Halloween mask sales contest and the Family Circle presidential cookie bake-off (hosted by the magazine, not the family from the Funnies pages that hasn’t aged in 30 years and includes that lovable scamp P.J.).
We’ll have to wait a few more months to find out if Romney masks outsell Obama masks in October (though HBO’s True Blood bought a truckload of the latter for a recent storyline in which a hate group wore Obama masks, called themselves “The Obamas”, and went on a tear in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana to execute supernatural beings like vampires and shape shifters…because there is a point or metaphor or something in there, somewhere).
I have no idea how long we’ll have to wait to find out the winner of the “Presidential Cookie Bake-Off” because Family Circle has one of the worst websites ever and no date is given for the official results announcement (which would be nice to know since this is a contest, of sorts, and all). There are vague links that send one to the magazine’s Facebook page, but that’s an amateur effort as well, with nothing about the presidential cookies anywhere to be found.
I assume this means that Ann Romney won and Family Circle, as part of the irresponsible media, doesn’t want to reveal that Michelle Obama lost (again!) in a contest where every First Lady since 1992 trounced her competition (except Michelle).

This really happened. It’s not photoshopped or anything. Michelle Antoinette Obama really had a play date with TV star Jimmy Fallon, where the two of them treated the interior of the White House like a playground at recess, yanking on ropes, rolling around on the ground, and conducting themselves with absolutely no awareness of their surroundings.
This is the part where I normally take something off-putting, ridiculous, or terrible that Michelle Antoinette has done and compare it to the class other First Ladies have shown throughout our country’s history…but I can honestly say that every woman who’s served in this role before Michelle Antoinette has refrained from tugging on ropes and rolling around on the carpets like this inside the people’s house.
There’s a perfectly good (and immensely expensive) wooden jungle gym that the Obamas had installed at the White House (on your dime) for their daughters — which would have been the appropriate venue for this horseplay.
There’s also White House fitness facilities where shenanigans like this could occur.
If it’s something that regular people wouldn’t be screwing around with inside their homes, then Michelle Antoinette shouldn’t be doing it in the temporary, free public housing unit she’s occupying until next January.
In fairness to her, I think she looks absolutely fabulous in this picture — she’s wearing one of the really expensive wigs and it’s nicely combed, her outfit is appropriate for what she’s doing (even if the thing she’s doing is inappropriate in its venue), her clothes are the correct size and flatter her, and the colors she’s wearing complement her. If this tug of war had been done outdoors, it would have been a home-run, fun, photo op.
UPDATE: I’m reminded by readers it could have been much worse than tug of war — she could have been having another of her “dance parties”:
Michelle Antoinette Obama is hosting a dance party in Boston to recruit youngsters to serve as ground troops for the Obama re-election campaign.
HillBuzz.org has obtained the exclusive footage above capturing, exactly, what this dance party will be like and what sort of music they will play.
“I’m ready for my close-up, Sir Mix-A-Lot”, is what anonymous sources in the East Wing claim Michelle Antoinette’s been giggling every time the dance party planning committee has met.
The dance party is being held on January 18th, 2012 at a Boston club called The Goodlife.
And a good life it is indeed for those who get to live so high and party so often on the taxpayers’ dime.
When she’s not touring the country scolding Americans for giving their children all the fatty, sugary, fried foods that she herself loves to eat with her own family,
high-profile hypocrite First Lady Michelle Antoinette Obama hosts a non-stop dance party that you are invited to. This is apparently what any given Thursday looks like in the East Wing.
Because so many in Washington love claiming to be “bipartisan”, it seems Meghan McCain has found room in her busy schedule (of making herself look foolish at every available opportunity) to dance with Michelle Antoinette at the Dance Party; I think that’s her in the clip above, with her shock of blonde hair bouncing around to the beats spun by Michelle Antoinette’s personal White House DJ. Whoever that blonde is, she sure behaves like the Meghan we’ve come to know since the 2008 election, anyway. Might as well be her.
Ellen Degeneres makes an appearance at Michelle Obama’s Dance Party too, because she’s just degeneres with her time like that. She’s not a very good dancer, though. Not as good as Meghan or Michelle Antoinette anyway.
How sad for our country that all of this is almost really happening…to a score by Sir Mix-A-Lot no less.
I’m not exactly sure what “iCarly” is, but I think it might be what former Senate candidate Fiorina is doing these days…or maybe it’s an ill-advised comeback vehicle for the woman who sang about Warren Beatty in the 70s walking into a party like he was walking onto a yacht…with one eye on the mirror…and clowns in his coffee, clowns in his coffee…oh, he was so vain (and he probably thought that song was about him).
Speaking of vain (and a clown without coffee), Michelle Antoinette Obama recently made a guest appearance on “iCarly”, where she had a dance party.
I have to say that I kind of love this…and wish Michelle Antoinette would devote all of her time to this endeavor. It certainly is much preferable to listening to her scold people for eating potato chips (in between bites she takes of brontosaurus-size ribs or pterodactyl-grade Buffalo wings). Her “Crusade Against Other People’s Obesity” is nowhere near as charming as seeing America’s current First Lady shake her ample derriere in ill-fitting stretch pants on a show called iCarly.
Ay Carumba! is more like it.
The jokes just kind of write themselves when our First Clown gets her groove on.
I need a link to a watchable archive of some White House holiday special that apparently aired, somewhere, last night.
I keep seeing references made to “an hour long show” that featured all of the extravagant Christmas decorations the Obamas’ splurged on this year — including flying in a staff of 100 “special helpers” from around the country to decorate the 37 trees the Obamas installed in the White House.
Does anyone have any idea what “one hour long show” this was, what network it aired on, and how I can get a link so that I can watch it (and screengrab from it) myself?
I’m working on something special that would make good use of any materials I’d find in this “one hour show”, I guarantee.
You can see the show referenced in this article here: but as is typical with the comments people leave on articles, the commenters talking about this “one hour show” don’t bother to identify it or give any indication of where someone can actually watch it.
Do you know what show people are talking about?
Michelle Obama to America: “Let them eat kale!”. Michelle Obama to the waitstaff: “Where’s my lobster? And gimme a side of chili fries with extra cheese!”
Megan Fox is a radio host — and a home-schooling mother of two in a suburb of Chicago — who has been paying great attention to the hectoring Michelle Antoinette Obama’s been giving parents in her “Let’s Move!” crusade against other people’s obesity while seemingly eating every fancy and expensive thing she can in her remaining time in the White House. Megan takes a look at some of our illustrious First Lady’s endless hippo-crasy for HillBuzz.org.
