Our Country's Christmas Tree
0 comment Saturday, July 26, 2014 |
Thanks for popping in while I blog-rob from Althouse, and take a look at some of the ornaments displayed on Obama's and our country's Christmas tree.
No, they didn't come from an SNL skit. They weren't lifted from the Daily Show -- oh would that I were witty enough to dream this stuff up.
No, they came from the White House Blue Room, courtesy of the "Big Government" blog. Below, I quote the post in full:
Why let a holiday season come between the White House and making some political statements? The White House pegged controversial designer Simon Doonan to oversee the Christmas decorations for the White House. Mr. Doonan, who is creative director of Barney�s New York has often caused a stir with his design choices. Like his naughty yuletide window display of Margaret Thatcher as a dowdy dominatrix and Dan Quayle as a ventriloquist�s dummy. For this year�s White House, he didn�t disappoint.
These photos of ornaments on the White House Christmas tree in the Blue Room were taken just days ago. Of course, Mao has his place in the White House.And, of course, it wouldn�t be Christmas without an ornament of legendary transvestite Hedda Lettuce.

* * *And, so soon after collecting the Nobel Peace Prize, why wouldn�t the White House have an ornament super-imposing President Obama onto Mt. Rushmore:
All around, a very Barry Christmas!A Mao ornament on our nation's Christmas tree? Tut tut. Pfft smfft. I've already extolled the virtues of exhorting Maoists.
Hells bells, folks, it's Christmas. Can't we lighten up? Even "Silent Night" has a new and special meaning this year in our blessed democracy. So let us all be quiet and just give thanks.
Because putting taste aside (for which there's no accounting) when you look at what we shelled out to buy our Senators, these ornaments are downright cheap.
