Drudge linked to this story which revealed that White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and his wife (CBS News reporter) Claire Shipman adorn the walls of their home with Soviet propaganda posters.  a

No home decorated in mid-century modern totalitarianism is complete without some German themed posters.  Why stop at the 20 million killed by the Soviets that Clarie and Jay like to display while they cook up a Sunday morning brunch of muffins, toast and OJ? (The Carney’s note their favorite thing to do on a Sunday morning is sleep in.)  To round out their decorative theme, I’ve got some suggestions.

Here’s one that looks like the Red Army poster in the Carney’s kitchen.  Not as colorful, but it has that woodblock feel that Claire must be striving for:

a

The Carneys seem to like feminine themes, albeit totalitarian ones.  Here’s a wonderful poster showing the tenderness of motherhood in 1930′s Germany they might hang in their den:

b

Here’s an end table that might work perfectly in the Carney’s living room:

a

Why not thrown in some sculpture? This piece next to the Red Army poster could create a delightful contrast, sort of like Stalingrad.

a

Naturally, the Carney/Shipman household will not sport images and art representing bloody Nazi totalitarianism.  That the White House press secretary doesn’t recognize the moral equivalence of hanging art representing the bloody Soviet version of totalitarianism says a great deal.

Interior Decoration brought to you by the Dolts who believe Che Guevara was a folk-hero.

Just imagine if George Bush's press secretary was discovered to have decorated his/her wall with Nazi Propaganda posters. Or Romney with right wing KKK posters. The press would be all over that. But Carney/Shipman having communist posters, well that is just so ho hum....

How come Shipman and Carney are not living in a public housing unit in D.C. and sending their child to a D.C. state school?

Hypocrites.

Obama and Carney want communism to win. Hence Carney's Stalinist posters are prominently displayed for all to see. That's also the reason Carney and Barry are not opposing Putin's neo-Soviet invasion, hoping he will spread militarily, what the U.S. commies running the country now are doing by executive order. If you visited enough federal office cubicles, you'd be shocked how many display Che Guevara posters. I wonder if the U.S. Marxists are aware that Putin is pushing eastern Christianity in Russia's public schools. If they did, the 10th Mountain Division might be in Sevastopol, NO? NO! Isn't it all so confusing? I can't wait until the Red Army invades Chicago, exterminates the Teacher's Union president and replaces the SEIU-teacher types with Orthodox priests.

Maybe Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn got a deal for them on the propaganda posters from one of their third world commie rat buddies. Rumor has it that there's a signed print by Pol Pot in the bathroom and Claire likes to dress up like a Nazi prison guard when they get romantic.

Jay Carney has a wife? I never looked into it, but he always gave me the impression that he was the wife in one of those "progressive" couples, if you know what I mean. Well, whaddya know? Maybe it's one of those Rock Hudson type arrangements?

Navel lint is "collectible". Gum wrappers from the theater floor are "collectible".

Since anything and everything can be collected, it's stupid to describe something as "collectible".

It's even stupider to use a superlative with it.

Mark, what he's saying when he says "very collectible" is that many people actually WANT to collect it, unlike navel lint and gum wrappers. When something is rare and interesting, people who love collecting things go crazy and the prices skyrocket. The reason to mention it is that this couple is attempting to both show how "cool" they are and too show off how much money they can spend on useless things. 50 years ago, it might have been impressionist art.

It's OK to be ignorant of obscure hobbies, though it rather rude to refer to someone trying to teach you something as being stupid.

I was going to say I don't collect anything, but then remembered that I have a personal library. Mea culpa.

This surprises me not in the least.

So much for a tell-all book.

Claire must run rings around SpokesKid Jay whose daily job requires a level of obfuscation and dissembling that would give anyone ulcers.

I wonder if Hugo Carney was named after Chavez.

It seems a reasonable question... since Hugo isn't exactly a normal name in America.

You can't say Hugo is exactly popular in the US,... especially given it's most recent public wearer..

I wonder if he got his purchase from the Zurbrüggen furniture chain in W. Germany before they pulled all the mugs off the shelf. Very chic design with a classy portrait of Der Fuhrer, it would fit right in to the kitchen motif. There's nothing better to wake you up than Hitler on your cup!
