    Quite a turn around from your previous posts on his passing.
    only when we need to feed our Obama outrage.

    When I was in college, I went to DC with a group of friends for the annual March for Life. During the march, one of my friends pulled me aside so we could have a picture taken of the two of us. I didn't realize until I saw the pic later, but we had managed to park ourselves in front of a rather large, sad and graphic poster (I'll spare everyone further details). So there we are, in front of that graphic pic, grinning like we're posing with Mickey Mouse in Disneyland. My point? Someone point a camera at you, the impulse is to smile.

    I'm no Obama fan but this is a non issue.

    Jeebus H. Christo, you Obama Delusion Syndrome folk really can't handle anything can you?

    Bush took a selfie at the event (not a funeral, a celebration)

    The talk radio fed ultra right tea party folk need a constant input of manufactured "anger" to get through their days of willful ignorance.

I think the South Africans electrifying the atmosphere with happiness was likely contagious to those from other places and affected people like our President and the leaders of the UK and Denmark. People in the stands were literally dancing and cheering. You can't go into another culture and impose our ways of doing things on them. When in Rome....

    I've found most people I've talked with around the water cooler were fine with it. It seems the only people bothered were those who already don't like the President. In any event, I think it'll help him with younger supporters.
    When my father died, we had the obligatory "rosary" service, my dad was a long disaffected catholic like me and had no use for the baloney, but we did it (we had to do a closed casket because he didn't want to be embalmed ($2500) nor buried ($5000 casket, $4000 to dig the ground, $2000 to engrave the stone). His sister in law by way of his brother lost her second husband (not my dad's brother, better), a month before my dad died. His brother is an old school Chicago priest. We had the visitation, and everyone sat down expecting the dreary rosary, but no... The priest got up and said, "there are so many stories in this room, let's hear them and laugh and revel in this man's life!, we aren't going to recite the rosary" What followed was a lot of great, funny stories from his kids, grandkids, cousins, friends, etc. All the while, people sneaking out to the parking lot to a full ice chest of beer. We laughed, we cried we enjoyed life. The next week, an associate who worked for me, an older man who was a full hellfire and brimstone pentacostalist (who I had several great agnostic vs fundamentalist discussions) came to me and said "I have never, in my life been to something that should be somber and quiet, that was so joyful, and so full of love, thank you!"

    Mandela was a great man, because he changed, because he dropped the hate, because he defied all the haters that desperately needed him to hate to make themselves feel superior. Mandela forever made the word "apartheid" a past tense word. Let's enjoy the good and bury the anger and hate that so many people in the media want us to have (after a word from their sponsors)

    Is that too much to ask?

    So what this is really about is that the Danish PM was sitting between Cameron and Obama, and took out her phone to take the picture. And we're outraged because Obama smiled?Is this another case where you'd like to see him tell world leaders to go **** themselves? Especially considering Denmark and Britain are our friends?
    The defense of Michelle? She wasn't peeved. She always looks like that.

    At the unintended risk of offending, one thing I've noticed about our side is nearly all of the "outrage" we get seems to be instigated by influential pundits and media outlets. I could create a list of stuff over that last 5 years and the explanations on why XYZ infuriated us can be written verbatim, everyone saying the exact same thing and not bothering to even put it in our own words always AFTER 3pm or the next day, never before the pundits got the chance to comment on it. I might be forgetting something but I can't personally recall anything an average person on our side got worked up over that it was obviously an original observation and position.

    Since you seem to have inside knowledge about bimbo's are there any other restrictions or rules we need to know about? Height / weight rule maybe? Age rule or something like that?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
