Last night, we watched the 5th season Angel episode “Smile Time” on Hulu. That’s the one where David Boreanaz’s character was turned into a puppet by demons from Hades who wanted to take over the world by stealing children’s life forces.
If that sounds familiar, it’s essentially what Obamacare does to the country via unfunded and unconstitutional mandates, while robbing the nation’s children of their future and stealing access to medical care from old people.
We’d rather deal with the puppets. Nothing made of felt is ALL bad. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, however…
As a fun resource for future projects, we thought it would be fun to try to collect as many photos as exist of the past and current First Spouses posing with Muppets from Sesame Street. We’re not aware of this existing anywhere else…but it could make for some fun montages in the future…and could give Chrissy the Hyphenated some great material for future Class vs. Crass installments. “Class vs. Crass — with MUPPETS” sure has a fun ring to it.
Add links to any First Spouse & Muppets photos you can find, or email them to us at HillBuzz@gmail.com so we can collect them all in this thread.
Maybe, if we ask her nicely, Chrissy can photoshop a great image of Todd Palin with Sesame Street Muppets too…so we can all continue to look passed the Obama Administration and into the future Palin White House, and anticipate the day our first First Gentleman joins his predecessors in the company of Big Bird et al.
PS – We really do love these images…and if any of us had kids, we would TOTALLY print them out and frame them. As it is, if we can find some really good shots of all the First Spouses during their Sesame Street appearances, we might just put them together into some kind of collage for Buzzquarters. They’re just so cheerful and random and odd. Love that.
Jennifer Brunner, Ohio’s Secretary of State, is a close second as the Most Terrible Woman in the Buckeye State (beat only by Helen Jones-Kelley, the former Director of Ohio’s Department of Job and Family Services, and scourge of Muppets everywhere).
Brunner is one of the eggs hatched by George Soros’ “Secretaries of State Project”, which installed all sorts of lunatics in various states, where they are perched to allow rampant voter fraud by the likes of ACORN and the SEIU to benefit Democrats in state and national elections — a job Brunner pursues with zeal, glee, and vigor.
She’s also pursuing the Democrats’ Senate nomination in Ohio, against Lt. Governor Lee Fischer, and on Sunday pledged she’d throw a tantrum and essentially make raspberry sounds when she loses to Fischer in the election today.
Brunner actually said, out loud, to the media, that she’ll refuse to campaign for Fischer when he becomes the nominee.
“Don’t hafta, ain’t gotta! Get me Soros on the phone. Tell him baby’s not happy!”, Brunner seems to have said, in classic Jennifer Brunner fashion.
It’s stunning, really, until you remember who hatched and installed Brunner, and whom she truly represents.
She’s the Left’s candidate. She was placed in her position to deliver the state for Obama in 2008, and to do everything possible to allow fraudulent voter registrations and other fraud to benefit Democrats when they need it. She’s shameless in her pursuits, and sloppy enough in her execution that we hope Ohio voters are the ones giving her raspberries today.
Let her pout. Let her get Soros on the phone. Let the lot of them go down together.
AND, most importantly, let Republicans keep George Voinovich’s Senate seat in the fall, with a victory for Rob Portman.
Barney Frank confronting you and saying how childish you are and how much you need to grow up is like Oprah telling you that you eat too many doughnuts and Helen Jones-Kelley confronting you about your Muppet hunting and skinning addiction.
Code Pink deserves every bit of rebuke, but it’s just funny to see the source that’s coming from.
It’s been a horrific few years on Sesame Street.
The latest round of bad news includes layoffs of 1/5 of its workforce — 67 of 355 human staff positions are being eliminated because of the Obama Economy.
These layoffs follow the mysterious disappearance of scores of muppets near Chagrin Falls and Mineral City, Ohio in recent years (coinciding, incidentally, with the increasingly bougie fashion stylings of Obama operative Helen Jones-Kelley, AKA “The Butcher of Fraggle Rock”).
Whatever muppets haven’t been skinned for their pelts and sewn into hideous periwinkle jackets in Ohio are headed to the unemployment line thanks to Obama (who is presiding over the worst hit the stock market’s ever taken, under any president in history, and whose trillions in misplaced spending are lengthening the recession).
Under Obama, in a way, we are all muppets now.
UPDATE: The rumor on Helen Jones-Kelley that we consistently hear from people in Ohio is that eventually she’ll end up in Washington, working for either Housing and Urban Development or Health and Human Services. It doesn’t appear any private company in their right mind will hire this woman, but since she fell on the sword for Obama, people feel she’s just laying low until people forget what she did to Joe “the plumber” Wurzelbacher (and all of those Muppets), so she can go work for Obama in Washington in some capacity.
Right now, it appears Jones-Kelley is still unemployed. It would be marvelous if she always stayed that way, but at the very least, she should never be allowed anywhere near a computer with access to anyone’s vital information ever again.
In a perfect world, she’d spend the rest of her life asking “would you like fries with that?”, but that’s too much to hope for we know, even in this, the Golden Age of HOPE! and CHANGE!
And freshly skinned Muppets, apparently.
Disgraced Obama operative Helen Jones-Kelley forced to resign as Director of Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (but is still allowed to wear hideous periwinkle felt clothing)
Looking back at the General Election, Helen Jones-Kelley is honestly one of the worst people, from either campaign, to enter the spotlight. There truly aren’t words to describe the sort of person who, motivated by extreme partisanship and zealotry, illegally abuses her state-supported powers to dig up dirt on an innocent citizen whose misfortune it was to ask Dear Leader an incovenient question at an unexpected campaign stop (but words like terrible, repulsive, cartoonish, bougie, disgusting, shameful, preposterous, and muppet-wearing do come to mind).
We sincerely hope what Jones-Kelley (and her subordinate minions, working on her orders) did to Joe “the plumber” Wurzelbacher culminates in a very large settlement from the state of Ohio to the plumber the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services declared war on. That whole Department needs a major house cleaning (and not just the fridge in the break room where someone keeps leaving all that weeks-old pad thai and onion dip). Every Jones-Kelley flunkie needs to become a client of the Department of Job and Family Services unemployment services division — with their bougie butts on the street and their computer skills focused on resume writing, not Wurzelbacher-attacking.
As much as we love Ohio’s Governor Ted Strickland, he grossly mishandled Jones-Kelley: first saying she did nothing wrong, then refusing to apologize for her inexcusable behavior, then ordering a one-month tepid suspension, and now finally, FINALLY, forcing her to resign (before, we assume, being deservedly fired). She should have been fired immediately. Strickland is a good man who really dropped the ball on this one: if a white man was the Director of Job and Family Services and did what Jones-Kelley did to a black supporter of Obama’s, instead of the other way around, that man would have been fired the day his inappropriate conduct was discovered.
It seemed like Strickland was going to let Jones-Kelley get away with her bad behavior, but it looks like that 4% drop in Strickland’s approval rating over the course of the Jones-Kelly affair was enough to change Strickland’s mind.
He’s up for re-election in 2010 — and he’s no dummy (and thankfully, no muppet either, or Jones-Kelley would have turned him into a double-breasted periwinkle jacket by now. She may be morally repugnant and one of the most terrible people in Ohio, but you gotta admit the lady’s got mad skills when it comes to tracking, catching, skinning, and repurposing muppet felt into high-styling business attire).
NOTE: And, out of curiosity, if Obama operative Helen Jones-Kelley uses muppet pelts to make the hideous clothes she wears, what sort of hellacious demons is Michelle hunting and skinning for the signature eyesores she favors?
