Hmm… It’s all becoming clear:

This pic was taken at the Mandela memorial, several weeks ago.

When I first saw it, on Twitter, I thought it must have been photoshopped. I searched for the source, and yep, it’s “for real.”

(via Ekstra Bladet)

Although, I was puzzled:

This does not look like the picture of a “happy couple;” aren’t they supposed to have a swell marriage?

But Tammy’s latest post, Michelle Obama’s Taxpayer-Funded Hawaiian Birthday Tantrum, puts it all in perspective.

One question, though: What’s up with Susan Rice?

Ok, this is really going to need some good captions. So, TAMS, go for it! 🙂

    “Leggy blonde foreign leader”: (sigh) “What a dream boat”
    Flotus: “You’re all suckuhs”
    Potus: “hmm, the dragon skin is a little rough, I’ll put a full time manicurist on her staff”
    Rice: “where can I get me some of this”

    All kidding aside, as the saying goes: A picture speaks a thousand words – and this pic has a lot to say.

    The Godmother

    Don Michele: We have known each other many years, but this is the first time you’ve come to me for counsel or for help. I can’t remember the last time you invited me to your house for a cup of coffee, even though I’m your wife and mother to your only children. But let’s be frank here. You never wanted my friendship. And you feared to be in my debt.

    Barackera: I didn’t want to get into trouble.

    Don Michele: I understand. You found paradise in America. You had a good trade, you made a good living. The media protected you and there were courts of law. So you didn’t need a friend like me. Now you come and say “Don Michele, give me justice.” But you don’t ask with respect. You don’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me “Godmother.” You come into my house on the day Mandela is buried and you ask me to look away for money.

    Barackera: I ask you for justice.

    Don Michele: That is not justice. Your image media is alive.

    Barackera: Let them suffer then as all suffer.

    [the Don is silent]

    Barackera: How much shall I pay you?

    [the Don turns away dismissively, but Barackera stays on]

    Don Michele: Barackera, Barackera, what have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you’d come to me in friendship, this scum who ruined your selfie would be suffering this very day. And if by some chance a dishonest man like yourself made enemies they would become my enemies. And then, they would fear you.

    Barackera: Be my friend… Godmother.

    [the Don at first shrugs, but upon hearing the title she lifts her hand, and a humbled Barackera kisses the ring on it]

    Don Michele: Good.

    Don Michele: Some day, and that day will definitely come, I will call upon you to do a service for me. But until that day, consider this justice a gift on Mandela’s burial day.

      On a real Godfather note; a former no. 2 boss of the Yamaguchi-gumi, Japan’s largest Yakuza, has just died of natural causes at age 85. What is interesting about this is the career cycle. During WWII he was trained as a kamikaze pilot but the war ended before he flew, crashed, and burned, so he became a bureaucrat in Kobe, Japan. After retiring from bureaucracy he joined the Yamaguchi-gumi eventually rising to become second in command before he retired from there in 2007. Kamikaze to Bureaucrat to Yakuza. Oh my.

    Alain- A true Godfather afficianado. I hope he doesnt forget to leave the gun and take the cannolis.

    M: “. . . yea right . . .”

  6. It occurs to me that the photos in which we see Mooch happy are nearly always those that are staged or set up shots designed to make her look that way. In contrast, when caught off the cuff, the look is just a bit less enthusiastic…

    Obama’s harem is a really ugly image.

  8. ancientwrrior says:

    She looks like she just noticed that someone has passed gas. But then she always has that sour smelly image, or could it just be OweBama odor?

    Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

    Wikip: The Three Witches or Weird Sisters are characters in William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth (c. 1603–1607). Their origin lies in Holinshed’s Chronicles (1587), a history of England, Scotland and Ireland….Upon committing regicide and taking the throne of Scotland, Macbeth hears the trio deliver ambiguous prophecies threatening his downfall….The Three Witches represent darkness, chaos, and conflict, while their role is as agents and witnesses. Their presence communicates treason and impending doom….The witches’ lines in the first act: “Fair is foul, and foul is fair: Hover through the fog and filthy air”…”

    Haha, still waiting for the pictures that weren’t taken out of context.. Supposedly the photographer said that the selfie and pouty Michelle pics were “taken out of context”. Let’s see ’em..

    Looks like the lovely blonde sitting next to mooch has her hand up as though she was going to be the next one to be kissed, and Susan Rice looks like she’s thinking, I hopes he’s not going to slobber on me.

  13. deaves1 says:

    I the king licking her hand or kissing it?

  14. DAVID says:

    I will kiss more than this when we are alone.

    A bunch of class-less people.

  16. strider says:

    Weird to see furtive and haughty expressions at a memorial service.

    Dear Barry –
    If you think you had bad press for my vacation habits in the first 5 years, just wait for the next 3 years. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

    Your upcoming years in the WH will be known as “Mooch-Hell”….

    Love Michelle
