Your Orwellian Photograph of the Year

Peep this:


Suggested Captions:
  • FLOTUS: "FLY, MY PRETTIES, FLY"
  • AUDIENCE: "WHAT IS THY BIDDING, MY MASTER"
Hypocrisy Factor: 11 (out of 10).  Argo won, and the FLOTUS was the presenter.  Let me explain:

In a period of Middle East unrest, militant Islam gained footing in Tehran.  Revolutionary mobs stormed a US embassy, from which six Americans escaped.  The Canadian government and the CIA bravely risked it all to see these Americans returned home.  A remarkable story.  An outstanding movie, clearly deserving of the Oscar.

Fast forward to Benghazi.  Islamofacists again are igniting all sorts of uprisings throughout the Middle East, culminating in the attack and eventual storming of the US Consulate in Benghazi.  Rather than take a chance and do everything possible to remove those stationed there from harms way (aka "doing one's job"), The Regime did nothing.  

And so the FLOTUS gets to appear 50 ft. tall in front of an obedient and fawning audience.  The perfect hypocrisy, if you ask me.  So fitting.

Personally, I was just hoping someone was clever enough to throw a hammer through the screen.

And our troops in the background as human criticism shields. Shameless.
