New Photo Caption Contest: An Official Halloween Portrait of the First Couple?
October 23, 2013 - 11:41 am
This Daily Beast photo caught my eye with a caption that read:
New York City, October 22, 2013
Pumpkins carved in the likeness of U.S. President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are lit at Madame Tussauds in New York.
After seeing the photo I thought it presented PJ Media readers with the perfect opportunity to write some scary captions or “thought bubbles” to help celebrate the upcoming Halloween holiday with the First Couple.
Certainly these times are not just scary but it appears our leaders in Washington have gone completely mad.
For starters, consider an Obamacare web site that cost over $600 million and is an utter fiasco. Worse, a president who was not aware of the problems plaguing his signature program upon which his political legacy rests.
This pattern of ignorance is all too familiar.
Why is it that whenever a serious or politically inconvenient problem arises, President Obama always seems to be out of the loop?
Is that really possible — or is it a willing suspension of disbelief? (Hat-tip to Hillary for that one.)
So one must ask, What does he know about? Parties, celebrity-courting, golf, sports, vacations, partisanship, teleprompter-reading, event-staging and campaigning are the correct answers.
But enough of my ranting — for now it is time for you to get in the haunted Halloween spirit and enter a winning caption or “thought bubble.”
The only rules for this politically incorrect contest are: “Do not tick off the NSA or the IRS.”
Thankfully, George Orwell’s 1984 inspired, “thought-crime” political prosecution programs are still only under-development at Eric Holder’s DOJ. (I am kidding of course, but you can be sure that if such programs did exist President Obama would be briefed daily and Edward Snowden would have all the details.)
Finally, I will leave you with this timely question: Are pumpkin carvings racist?
