    Michelle Obama appeared on the giant screen and Teabagger heads exploded. They didn’t even have to be watching. They knew instinctively. SPLAT!

  2. Moz's says

    but teabaggers don’t watch the oscars

    the whole “commie libuuuuurl hollywoooood” thing

    Anyway; cool and Sally Field was robbed

    If anne deserved it then she wouldn’t have had to campaign as hard as she did to get it. Estimates are the most $$$ and forceful oscar campaign for an award ever. Last year Streepe didn’t have to campaign and won best actress = proof in pudding…if you have to campaign to get the award then you don’t deserve it

    Wait, Michelle Obama was doing something or other? My friend and I were only looking at the three handsome guys behind here, who are they?

    Am I the only one who thought this made no sense? The Oscars and the film industry are not just an event celebrating American film (arguably it’s more global than ever in who are nominated), and while the First Lady is supposedly a “film buff” (huh? really?) she has nothing to do with the industry. I like her a lot, but she’s known more for her initiative on youth fitness than for any cultural notoriety. Plus, the co-presentation with Nicholson was awkwardly staged and coordinated.

    I suppose it’s a perk of the office. I’m sure they spent weeks sweating over whether this was a good idea or not.

    As Josh noted, FLOTUS was helping promote one of our biggest exports: movies. Her participation was suggested by and then arranged for the two gay Oscar show producers by Harvey Weinstein and his daughter who are huge Obama supporters. Gay producers + liberal Hollywood + Jewish Democrats + FLOTUS looking gorgeous live from the White House = GOPer/Tea Party madness all around. I LOVE IT!!!

  7. Moz's says

    would add that FLOTUS presentation goes along with promoting the State Dept/ public service = Argo

    so completely fits

    This was truly a sad day for America, democracy and the world. We have the First Lady surrounded by military awarding the Best Picture award to a CIA propoganda movie that glorifies the CIA intrusion into Iran and demonizes Iran, presently still a target of American aggression, and everyone sucks down the propoganda and the military behind the First Lady applaud like mad. We have become a South American dictatorship like Jaun Peron’s Argentina, with Michelle as Evita. Sick and sad, and what a terrible message we are sending out to the world.

    “You can put a baboon is a dress, but it is still a baboon”

    Yes, and you can fold toilet paper after the first wipe, but there’s still sh.t inside. Some human skulls have the same quality.
