OK. That’s funny.

Florida Girl February 25, 2013 at 11:13 pm

Agree!!!! Love the snark, Keith!

Scottso February 26, 2013 at 8:47 am

Very clever Keith!

gracepmc February 25, 2013 at 11:46 pm

Spot on. Very funny.

Otis Driftwood February 26, 2013 at 12:24 am

well played Keith.. well played!

Janice/Granny Jan February 26, 2013 at 12:59 am

Michelle O has been an inspiration to me. She has inspired me to make my first video since the election. (Well, it’s only 34 seconds but it’s a start.)

Michelle Obama “You Guys Make a Pretty Good Photo Op”

Sleeveless in Seattle…two thumbs up.

Swedishlady February 26, 2013 at 3:11 am

Nice to see you again, Janice. Your satire is much needed to make these times endurable. I have noticed that O and the wife surround themselves with more white people nowadays. Is it OK today among blacks to want to look and act like white people ? Well, all these racial matters are really puzzling, at least to me.
The election in Italy is over and it ended with a real Italian mess. One of the candidates, a ( real ! ) comedian, Beppo Grillo, got many votes, but so did Berlusconi and Bersani-Monti .So there you are. Italy has no leadership in these dire times. The lovely Italy is in bad shape and needs reforms. Italian politics are highly entertaining with many scandals and – on the dark side- much corruption. But why not signor Grillo as primeminister ? More humour in the political world !

Island Girl February 26, 2013 at 3:53 am

Yay Janice and my fav Swedishlady! And Keith of course. Is is 2016 yet?

Island Girl February 26, 2013 at 3:55 am

*it* ..

Swedishlady February 26, 2013 at 6:11 am

Hello there, Island Girl, are you from Hawaii ?

Just2old February 26, 2013 at 6:39 am

Agree SL; Italy might as well have elected the comedian. After living in Italy for seven years I can attest to the fact that many of their laws are either ignored or laughed at. For instance, Southern Italy has some of the toughest traffic laws in the world and how do they react to them? They ignore them. A line in the road is merely a suggestion. Traffic signals? Ignore them too. The one rule they seem to abide by is: “go as fast as you can for as far as you can”. Taxes? Those are for suckers to pay. Other than that; Italy is an awesome place to live!

Swedishlady February 26, 2013 at 7:22 am

Oh yes, I love Italy too. That food, those magnificent buildings and ruins. Us lawabiding , reserved Northerners tend to love the easygoing, charming and disrespectful Italians. However after a while, and I am sure that you saw it after seven years, Just2old, you notice the snake in the paradise. It´s difficult to build a functioning society when people ignore the rules. But there is of course a big difference between the northern and the southern parts of Italy. Many taxpayers from Milano would like a guarded border north of Rome. However, a great place to visit !

Welcome back, Janice – you’re just in time. MO is getting too big for her designer duds!
I agree with you, Swedishlady…I’ll take humor over hubris any day. We certainly could use some comic relief in this country.
Keith is a national treasure – ‘Sleeveless in Seattle’ – love it!

Good one GJ ! Anything coming out of the Obama White House these days is ripe for your talent :) Snark on !

Susan February 26, 2013 at 9:31 am

Good one Granny Jan. So many wondered why Mooch had a backdrop of military for her Oscar moment and you just answered them. They are merely photo ops for the grifters. Welcome back to the fight!

Aileen February 26, 2013 at 6:39 am

Funny…and may be the secret truth.

Just2old February 26, 2013 at 6:40 am

Guess she has the right to bare arms!

MarjoJimbo February 26, 2013 at 7:55 am


Guillermo Grande February 26, 2013 at 7:42 am

Might have a better shot as a horror film or perhaps makeup/special effects.

Langley Spook February 26, 2013 at 8:02 am

They are making new Star Wars movies and Michelle would make a great Wookie

DeniseVB February 26, 2013 at 8:26 am

I found a short film that opened the 2002 Oscar show. Laura Bush appears for about 6 seconds …

Remember the Obama supporters whining WELL LAURA BUSH APPEARED AT THE OSCARS TOOOOOOO ? This is it :D

RickW February 26, 2013 at 8:58 am

Her 5-6 seconds, with a smile, no background props of military, might just wash away my memory of Mooch’s video. Thanks, D!

Keith Koffler February 26, 2013 at 8:30 am

Thanks gang, thought you’d like that one.

qestout February 26, 2013 at 10:09 am

Good one, Keith :)
It really irks me that this sleeveless–no matter what season–trend is firmly in place. Business attire for female newscasters is now a sleeveless, bright cocktail dress (sans stockings), even though the guys are in jackets and ties. Don’t they get cold, after they take off their winter coats? Are studios temps set to 80 degrees?

Langley Spook February 26, 2013 at 1:28 pm

so many of todays female newscasters dress like high-price escorts

Jeff1000 February 26, 2013 at 9:16 am

“Shiftless In Seattle”.

“Sleeveless” works great though.

Susan February 26, 2013 at 9:33 am

It is funny. One of your best quotes, Keith.

Girly1 February 26, 2013 at 9:59 am

Interesting tidbit: According to entertainment magazine, Vulture, Harvey Weinstein called in favors from the WH – hiring Obama campaign mgr, Stephanie Cutter, to promote his film, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’.

According to Vulture, Cutter was hired to promote the film “not just as a well-made movie, but a culturally relevant and especially politically significant film that was shaping the national conversation about mental health triggered in part by the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.”

It was Weinstein’s daughter who came up with the idea of having MO present the Best Picture Award. Sometimes the best laid plans go awry, lol! Argo won….Weinstein and MO ended up with egg on their faces. In Harvey’s case, it could be that the WH Mooch is the kiss of death! She didn’t have much luck in Copenhagen with the Olympic committee, either.

Julie Brueckheimer February 26, 2013 at 10:23 am

That could be why she wore a silver dress.

Susan February 26, 2013 at 12:28 pm

Rush said it was telling that she announced the Oscar for “Argo”, a movie about rescuing American embassy personnel from Iran. Especially when under similar circumstances her husband didn’t lift a finger to rescue embassy personnel from Benghazi.

QueenOfScott February 26, 2013 at 10:05 am

She could win for “Little Miss MOOshine” or “American Ugly”.

cincycinco February 26, 2013 at 12:37 pm

How about a “Best Supporting Actor” nod for the stellar job Mooch is doing for the role of First Lardy (thanks for that, Jenna!) in the first five installments of the octology that is “The Lord of O-ing”!

“She” actually has people believing that “she’s”
- a loving wife
-a compassionate person
-a good mother
-proud of “her” Country
-a woman

And “She’s” *NONE* of these things!

Now, THAT’S acting!
