...a sweatshop of moxie

Sunday, February 08, 2009

Aww Mush

I was really upset when some right-wing bloggers dared to question whether this photo was a staged shot of the Presidential couple, showing a lot of affectionate body language towards each other.

Guys, this below is real. THIS was phony. I mean, can't you tell?

The other fact which stuck out for a lot of bloggers, mostly male themselves, was that the men riding in the elevator with the First Couple looked like they wanted the lift to open up and swallow them whole.

Men are strange that way. They would gawp at a couple on a screen having hot sex, but the first sign of tender affection right in front of them, and they're all like "get me out of here".

Mind you, it wasn't always that way. Grandpapa and his generation seemed to enjoy watching a couple making out. Look at the guy with the cigarette and the Fairbanks 'tache.

70 years later, and you can still hear his silent, "awww".

...give the Obamas a break, okay? They genuinely love each other, and I don't know about you, but that's what I want in a President and his old lady, I mean!, First Lady.

EXTRA: Oh. Remember? Ouch.

IN THE COMMENTS: Chickenlittle says he's down with the Prez and Wifey being genuinely in love, but queries where on earth Mrs. Obama got that dress.

Well, Chicken, I don't know about the provenance of her ostrichy ball gown, but the one she wore to the Inauguration I think came from this.

As Ace put it, "Who shot the curtains?". Heh, right-wing bloggers rule.

  • OK Victoria,

    I'm all ♥ with that stuff too--presidential affection, real and genuine, is wonderful and not to scoffed, but:
    WTF is Michelle wearing? Shrederhosen? Get a grip!

  • Check out how neat he is.

    Uncluttered desk = serial killer?

  • Guys used to smile like that when they saw a couple making precisely because there was no porn available.


    Actually, I wonder how much of that is due to not knowing, you know, where you put your gaze when your uber-powerful boss is snogging his wife.

  • Mirrored desk = narcisismo

  • Politicians and their spouses experiencing the emotion we call "love"--that's a good one. Next you'll be telling me they know how to feel "shame" and "guilt" and that when they resign they really do want to "spend more time with their families".

    PDA is fine. Tongue-down-her-throat-legs-up-on-the-mantelpiece making out, get a room please. (And it's not all gender, part of it is culture.) I also have to concur with Blake on the whole "don't stare at the boss and wife while their snogging" hypothesis.

  • Ouch (with the Clintons).

    Yeah I could tell that picture wasn't fake because I looked at the other men in the elevator. Made me laugh a little how uncomfortable they are.
