The new White House prayer breakfast?

"The Obama White House is abuzz with talk of witchcraft by first grandmother, 72-year-old Marian Robinson, who lives in the White House residence. A close friend of Michelle Obama says the president is furious at his mother-in-law after learning that she was practicing Santeria, an African spirit cult, in the White House."
"The president is quite upset about this on two different levels. First, he is a committed Christian, no matter what his critics say about Reverend Wright." Blog post

Note: In the spirit of providing equal time to the opposition, here is what the liberal website The Wonkette had to say about the matter." It was rather amusing. It should also be noted the blogger that posted this at Town Hall signed up for Town Hall on the same day. In other words, this was probably a little plant. Doesn't stop me from having some fun though.

from the blog link: " "Michelle put her foot down when she heard that her mother took her dad to ceremonies where they did spells and trances, and sacrificed animals, chickens and goats I think."

Now I understand how Obamacare will work ;-)

How many Nancy Reagan and astrology jokes have been made over the years?

Anonymous said...

KF, it was wrong about Nancy Reagan and wrong now.

Do we want to model for our children that " if others are doing the wrong thing, it's ok for us to do it too"? That old saw " two wrongs don't make a right" has merit. Setting a higher standard and taking the moral high ground also has some merit.

Does anyone out there want to be judged by their mother-in-law? If crazy behavior by our relatives who aren't even blood kin gets to be political fodder, who the hell can run for office?

MS is a terrible disease and more than a few people try desperate and stupid measures.

And, did you check out this Kristen Atkinson? Not someone I'd use as a source for anything.

This just isn't up to your usually high standards KF.

bellow the belt, not high standard? what the hell am I reading.

How come any time ANYone says a word about anything remotely close to African, black, ANYTHING close to the fact that this man and his family are black it's "whoa, you can't say that. you just can't". Mentioning that this practice is reportedly happening in the White House is not even close to something insulting. The vid? well that's just plain funny, because you know that's the image conjured up when one thinks of what this 'religion' and rituals might be like because it's foreign to most people.

We can make fun of Bush being a cowboy all day long, but you even mention Obama's black side (he's half white btw) and it's oh hell naw. The mother in law? She's living in the White House- fair game.

Actually, I'm quite fond of James Bond movies.

Kingfish said...

I'm not the one practicing this stuff in the White House. Just having a little fun here. I don't guess the crabapples noticed I included the part about Obama being a Christian and not approving of it. I can just see his Harvard ass hitting the ceiling when he finds out the mother in law is into this stuff and i'm being serious.

Anonymous said...

I never liked Bush being ridiculed as a rich, clueless, addled, cowboy frat-boy either. I didn't like that, and I certainly don't like this either. I mean, do people really not have anything better to do? What does that do for you? I don't get it.

This sort of thing exhibits the maturity level of jr. high or less, and I'm surely insulting some jr.high kids in saying that. (My apologies to them).

KF, I think you're better than this.

Anonymous said...

To atone for this, we'll be looking for you to post some babe photos and more cute dogs. Sigh......

Perhaps some babes singing in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir holding cute dogs.

Likely all the same people giving you heck Kingfish are the very people who carried water for Lange's anti-Semitic Childers attack video.

If people want to practice Santeria or astrology in their own private home, fine; I may think they're morons but won't waste effort tracking them down and criticizing them.

But my taxes pay for the White House, and if someone living there on my dime is doing something very stupid and embarrassing to the country I will criticize it (both Nancy R. and the MiL-in-Chief). It's why we have a First Amendment (and why it's the FIRST Amendment).

Anonymous said...

8:33 agree...also agree the clip is as funny as the first time I saw it, BUT...

Why does GOP Stiletto and KF assume anyone who finds this objectionable is a Democrat? Or , does so because of some racial over-sensitivity?

Poor defense

News flash...more than a few of us think this political free for all went too far long ago and is HURTING our Nation!

Aside from that , some of us also appreciate that being civil is a part of being civilized. We are becoming a rude, crude, undisciplined, uncivilzed culture and that will, in the end destroy us.

What is it about " two wrongs don't make a right" that is hard?

And, who the Hell are we going to get to run for office anymore...saintly orphans? Oh, no, wait, there'd be talk of psychological damage. I know, a test tube baby raised at the wait...that won't work either...

George Washington couldn't get elected these days because of his screw up during the French Indian War and accusations that he married a rich widow only for personal gain! I can hear FOX or MSNBC now...depending on to which " party" they thought he belonged.

ALL of our Presidents...even the most admired have been and will continue to be HUMANS with flaws and crazy relatives.


stilettoGOP said...

What? This post was no different from the comedy that Bill Maher and John Stewart have been doing for yearrrs. But it's taboo now. Wtf ever.

Anonymous said...

stilettoGOP, it wasn't funny to me when Bill and John did it, and it isn't funny to me now, okay?

You repeatedly state that this is just like making fun of Bush or Bill and John's "comedy", as if someone doing it before now makes it all alright and funny now. To me, it's still just not even remotely funny. I can think of a billon really funny things, but to me this isn't one of them.

Everyone has an opinion, right or wrong. You enjoy your humor and I'll enjoy mine; neither of us can dictate what people find funny, but we are all free to state what we do or don't like without having to be defensive about it or justify it.

The fact that Kingfish actually believes this speaks volumes.

Kingfish said...

Believes what?

In case you haven't noticed, I don't discriminate, I take shots at everyone and everything on here. Saw that lil post on Town Hall and couldn't resist. I realize that is a blog post and not sourced properly.

Now if I could find that borat clip of Pickering at the Revival, I would've posted it a long time ago and believe me, I've looked.

Paul Mitchell said...

How can this post exist without some reference to Hillary Clinton's seances in the White House to channel Eleanor Roosevelt? Did we totally forget the Arkansas Trailer Court Administration? Kingfish, are you going all liberal or what?

By the way, I think Michelle's mama has more teeth than even Michelle does.

Does anyone else see the humor in the fact that STUPID is now a race?

stilettoGOP said...

Point taken, 11:54. I feel you. I really do believe it or not. But I swear I think it's funny as hell when we point out our differences sometimes using humor. Takes the edge off of touchy subjects. Hey I even thought Will Farrell's "You're Welcome America" was the funniest thing I've ever seen.

Just pisses me off the 'new' political correctness some are preaching now. (Sounds like you've always felt this way, so I take my pissed off'ed-ness away from you) Anyhow, thought for the day: lighten up, peeps.

Anonymous said...

Wow, everyone is irritable today, aren't we?
My take is that the repubs/conservs attack anything and everything the Obama admin is sponsoring. I don't see ANYTHING, stiletto, which is or has been off limits because we have a black president. (Better check your prejudices as well.....tradition is that if a person has ONE drop of "black blood" he/she must be labeled as black....your 1/2 white comment speaks volumes)
King, I know you give everyone equal billing. I absolutely love Obama, but I was LMAO on this one. Thanks!

So, you're prejudice if you state that Obama is half white. I see. Also, when did we adopt the "tradition" where one drop and you're black? Had never heard that actually. I'm always pinned the bad guy if I utter the word "black". But, Interesting* conversation I guess.

*makes me want to move to Canada.

Paul Mitchell said...

Stiletto, I think that we can all agree that Obama is at least ONE MILLION TIMES MORE WHITE THAN BLACK.

stilettoGOP said...

Now Paul I never said I was trying to claim him ;)

(and 20 seconds? Hmm)

GOP Stiletto, YOU brought up race first. I'm an OLD white Southerner and I can tell when the line has been crossed . I didn't think KF crossed THAT line or I'd have said so. Let's get real, we know the difference between racial hatred, prejudice and stereotypical humor. Some Yankee may not, but we do.

KF, 9:02 is already taking this as a serious story rather than humor and THAT'S the problem with it. Humor SHOULD be obvious. And, surely, you don't find this source to be credible?

9:02 you need to go to the White House site and learn about who pays for what and how it works. The public rooms haven't really changed since Jackie Kennedy's restoration project. You got a few more paintings and furniture restored...that's IT. The family residence is dealt with differently ...go read...too lenghty for here.

And the First Admendment does guarantee the right to be wrong AND the right for the rest of us to call you on it.

Our Founding Fathers, however, incorrectly assumed that being a gentleman or lady would still be a desired standard and that we'd cherish our liberty enough to be wise in our public utterances. They thought we'd take the responsibilities of good citizenship seriously.

But, then they kept their crazy relatives locked in the attic. Ours show up on TV . Our crazy relatives can now find each other and form political groups and be taken seriously by or intimidate politicians.

9:02 you're good on Freedom of Speech but don't think ( IF the MIL is a Santerria) that MIL should have Freedom of Religion?

If it were Laura Bush's mother, Republicans would argue Freedom of Religion and be outraged that at another liberal assault on religion.

That's the nonsense of partisan politics these days...puffery without substance from both sides.

Kingfish said...

I do owe an apology. Showing a Jane Seymour in a nightgown tied up is definitely sexist. For that I do apologize.

Anonymous said...

To 9:02 - I deliberately included both the current embarrassment in the White House (if these allegations are true) and Nancy Reagan to show my bipartisan disgust with my taxes being paid to support this crap. As far as the meaningless post about the differences between the east and west wings - unless the MiL-in-chief is paying fair market rent then she's living on my dime, and I reserve the right to express my (low) opinion about the reported behavior of an UNELECTED tenant in the People's House (both cases - UNELECTED).

might consider child care duties for " room and board"...
FYI, the East Wing and West Wing aren't part of the Executive Residence.
Of the 1.6 million dollars budgeted to maintain the White House, the new First Families get $100,000 for making the residence fit their needs. That was raised from $50000 by the Clintons. Most First Ladies have found that amount inadequate and had private sources to supplement.
I just think you're awfully worked up about very little and that's exactly why I didn't like the piece as I knew some would find a way to make a mountain out of a molehill.
We spend time on tempests in teapots so we miss entirely the looming hurricanes.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
