Thought balloon for Mrs. Reagan: “This place seems somehow familiar.”

Thought balloon for Ms. Obama: “She really ought to see a doctor about this hump”

Bissage said...

Hey look, it was either that or a joke about grilled cheese and tomato soup. Okay?!

Jason (the commenter) said...

Just to be sure the spirit of the Reagen Revolution is dead, the Obamas have Nancy over for a surprise exorcism.

Nancy: "Sorry, I thought fist bump was the same as a knuckle sandwich.

Pogo said...

I, for one, welcome our new socialist overlords.





Can I have my Boniva back now?

No way.

...the appearance of impropriety.

Bissage said...

The beauty of Pogo’s 6:31 is you can flip it around and it still works!

Chase said...

When your husband gets finished with his quota of cotton today, have him bring the banjo and you 2 can do some songs out on the veranda during supper.

Thought Balloon for Nancy: When my California astrologer told me and Ronnie that the last shall become the first, we thought she meant the Mexicans.

Every few years, the Obamas like to invite a typical white woman to lunch.

Pogo said...

After the photo, Mrs. Reagan was taken back to the secret room behind them, her release contingent on completion of the 32 commemorative quilts to be used as gifts, all featuring a life-sized appliqué of the Obama couple.

So far, arthritis has limited her output.

Nancy Reagan visits her astrologer.

"Michele Obama, not able to disown Nancy Reagan anymore than Barrack could disown his white grandmother, before throwing Mrs. Reagan under the 3:30 State Street Bus".

BIGGEST NEW YORK TIMES FRONT PAGE OBAMA SUCK-UP PIECE EVER

Anthony said...

Nancy: "Are you a lefty too?"

Tibore said...

Michele Obama, budding ventriloquist.

"I consider it part of my responsibility, as president of the United States, to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam."
`

"Of course, I do not consider it part of my responsibility, as president of the United States, to fight against negative stereotypes of Christians and Jews in my own country especially if they're not likely to vote for me"

Statement in "News" Article, Front Page of New York Times:

He strode onto the stage to loud applause and a standing ovation in the conference hall. He conceded that his speech came at “a time of great tension between the United States and Muslims around the world.”

But he sought to explain that he represented the new face of American leadership. He did not mention the name of George W. Bush, who preceded him in office, and whose policies contributed to the mistrust.


Obama - FIRST PUSSY.

traditionalguy said...

The Left leaning Nancy is quite true to form. She softened Reagin's hard ideology. She quite clearly despises the adopted son Michael Reagin who carries on with his father's ideas, and she obviously adores her son that thinks his dad was an undeveloped weirdo. Life's a bitch and then...

Chase said...

To do list:
`

1) Comment with outrage the on the ridiculous speech and even worse coverage of it in the New York "We'd sure be happy if all the Christians and most of the Jews in this country were gone" Times.

2) Take Screen Capture before admin removes comments, because she doesn't like them, while making certain that Jeremy stays with whatever he wants to say.

3) Email Screen Capture to friends and Family

4) Enjoy return Emails and eventual 4th or 5th generation forward containing my original email with Outraged Subject Line

Chase said...

"Michele, just once for me - can you say "I don't know nuthin' 'bout birthin' no babies, Miss Nancy!". C'mon, just once. And then, can I slap you?"

Pogo said...

"Okay, Mrs. Reagan, now it's time to take you to bingo. Won't that be fun?"

Scott said...

I think this is a charming pic from an otherwise charmless presidency.

m00se said...

"Mrs. Obama, comforting Nancy Reagan after she was found wandering the White House grounds looking for 'that nice negro family I heard about'".

Sofa King said...

Is that mirror reflecting a badly cracked wall, or is the mirror backing itself cracked?

Sheepman said...

Nancy: "I wonder what sort of puerile comments right wing wackos will make about this photo"

Michelle: "Don't sweat it, nobody cares what they think any more".

AllenS said...

A sheep and a man walk into a bar, and the bartender says: "That's like totally wrong."

Quayle said...

OK, now a picture, and let's get her that sandwich and send her on her way.

Mrs. Obama: IF NBC can worship my husband, so can this old broad.

Treacle said...

I'm always amazed at how a shiv slips so easily into the back of an old white heifer.

Pogo said...

So, Sheepman, how do the native Norwegians feel about the Somali pirates taking a Norwegian ship hostage?

Given the massive influx of immigrants to Norway and especially Oslo, from Asia and Africa (hey! including some of those friendly Somalis!), tours in Norway are gonna get ...interesting.

One more point on the Eurabian map, eh?

Nan said...

She touched her on the BACK! Noooooooo!

Mostly positive, I saw nothing negative in the press here.

Given the massive influx of immigrants to Norway and especially Oslo, from Asia and Africa (hey! including some of those friendly Somalis!), tours in Norway are gonna get ...interesting.

Not as "interesting" a lot of neighborhoods in the US.

Thought balloon for Mrs. Reagan: “Why do I smell fish?”

Thought balloon for Ms. Obama: “I hope they’re serving spare ribs.”

Nancy: "Ronnie, who is this woman?"

NR: "Stripes and prints. Together? How ghetto!"

MO: "Phat, my dear. More tea?"

Nancy Reagan Balloon: It's NOT OK to touch this Queen's back.

Carol_Herman said...

FROM CAROL HERMAN

Nancy is thinking that Ronnie's illness had him forget the White House; but here she is seeing ghosts.

Carol_Herman said...

FROM CAROL HERMAN

After raising Patty, Nancy can handle anything.

Diamondhead said...

"Michelle Obama smiles creatively."

lacegrl130 said...

Nancy: "Ronnie is that you?"
Michelle: "Notice how my shirt matches the china?"

NightBastard said...

The First Ladies pose for a photo before opening the hidden door and sliding down the poles to the First Lady Cave. To the Barackmobile!

PatCA said...

Nancy: "Why did I say yes to this invitation?"

Michelle: "Yeah, well, her outfit ain't so hot either."

chickenlittle said...

I'm getting the "dwarves" and "giants" and "standing on shoulders" vibe but I can't get it right.

former law student said...

"Do we know how to pick husbands, or what?"

Just Lurking said...

Nancy: "I AM standing up."

ricpic said...

At the end of your life all you can do is cower in the presence of big black Michelle and pray she doesn't throw you in the briarpatch.

PWS said...

Nancy Reagan: "What's your sign?"

kathleen said...

Mrs. Reagan requested on final meal served upon her chosen table setting before being forced to witness the ceremonial smashing of the Reagan china.

Jeremy said...

ricpic said..."At the end of your life all you can do is cower in the presence of big black Michelle and pray she doesn't throw you in the briarpatch."

Racism...alive and well.

You're a disgusting little prick.

Jeremy said...

Chase said..."Michele, just once for me - can you say "I don't know nuthin' 'bout birthin' no babies, Miss Nancy!". C'mon, just once. And then, can I slap you?"

And yet another racist prick rears his ugly head.

Jeremy said...

Scott said..."I think this is a charming pic from an otherwise charmless presidency."

You thought the Reagan presidency was "charmless?"

So did I.

Jeremy said...

Bissage said..."Thought balloon for Ms. Obama: “I hope they’re serving spare ribs.”

And yet another racist.

What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Do you understand how ignorant you sound?

Jeremy said...

There's nothing like a group of idiots, gathering on a blog site (a law professor's no less), posting racist comment after racist comment about the First Lady of America.

Ann...you must be very proud.

Bissage said...

Enlighten me, Jeremy. What makes you say my 8:54 was racist?

Thanks in advance.

Jeremy said...

Bissage - Gee, I guess the "ribs" comment might have something to do with it.

Maybe you could explain the "Why do I smell fish" comment."

You and others love to throw out these dumb-ass racist comments, then always try to parse your meaning when you're called on it.

Jeremy said...

Bissage - Cat got your tongue?

Bissage said...

@Jeremy said: Gee, I guess the "ribs" comment might have something to do with it.

What do you mean by “something?” Spare ribs are racist? I sincerely don’t know what you are trying to say. Try to be specific.

BTW, I’ll explain the fish part of the joke once you explain what made you say my 8:54 was racist.

But you might be able to figure it out for yourself. Here’s a hint to get you started: The two thought balloons are connected by a single theme. See if you can spot it.

And have fun!

Jeremy said...

Bissage - You're actually trying to say someone can throw out a comment relating to a black woman saying she hopes "they’re serving spare ribs," opposed to chicken or hamburgers or Chinese, etc...without conjuring up a racially charged image?

And again...what the hell does this mean?

Mrs. Reagan: “Why do I smell fish?”

Bissage said...

@Jeremy, what was the racially charged image that you saw when I mentioned spare ribs?

I'd really like to know.

Are you saying that spare ribs have something to do with the historical denigration of black women?

I'm trying to understand you and your accusation that I am a racist, or at least that my joke was racist.

And here’s a hint about the nexus between the two thought balloons: There is a comedically valid reason why I said spare ribs and did not say “chicken or hamburgers or Chinese, etc.”

Good luck!

Jeremy said...

Bissage - You're silly stab at comedy was racist and you know it.

I sent it along to a good friend asked her what she thought of both quotes and she immediately said the ribs thing was obviously directly related to Michelle being black and wondered if the other quote had something nasty to do with Michelle smelling bad or if there was a sexual connotation.

By the way, she's not black.

Give it up, there's nothing creative or subtle about it at all...just as many of the other comments here not as well.

Bissage said...

@Jeremy, you have yet to give an explanation and I am starting to wonder if you can.

But that’s okay. You’re entitled to your opinion and you don’t have to justify yourself to me. I just thought that maybe you could.

By the way, did you figure out the nexus? Could your good friend?

Go ahead. Ask her again.

You know, it seems we’re really not making much progress here, but stranger things have happened.

I’ll check back later.

Good luck, once again.

P.S. And remember, the issue is whether or not I am a racist, or at least whether my joke was racist. Please do try to maintain your focus!

"Aren't you the colored woman that used to clean Ronnie's office?"

Sorin said...

Mrs. Obama: Thank you, Nancy, for coming today.
Mrs. Reagan: Thank you so much, Michele, for inviting me.
Mrs. Obama: Now how can we get Barack and Ronnie on Mount Rushmore?
Mrs. Reagan: Oh, my.

Dad Bones said...

I liked David's comment: Nancy: "Ronnie, who is this woman?"

Then Pissed Off Hillbilly came up with a good one: "Aren't you the colored woman that used to clean Ronnie's office?"

So, Jeremy, how do you feel about making fun of old people? Heh Also, you don't stand a chance trying to rattle Bissage.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I have no caption,.

But I do think it would have been a much nicer photo if either both were standing or both were sitting. As it is now, it is a weird and slightly ominous photo with Michelle hulking over itsy bitsty bird-like shrunken Nancy.

former law student said...

Are you saying that spare ribs have something to do with the historical denigration of black women?

We're taught that Eve was a spare rib -- was that the joke?

Jen said...

Look at M. Obama in her American designers and Nancy in her French.
