    Hey, maybe we could stuff Obama full of buckshot, so he can’t hop…

    There’s only one thing that draws flies in 29 degree weather in January.

    That doesn’t look like a house fly. It’s the type of fly that likes putrid, offensive substances.

    Exactly (2), in the middle of winter. I wouldn’t want to eat a state dinner in that place.

    Remember the stories of the aroma in the campaign plane? Well it seems they may have accomplished the same thing in the White House if there are flies like that there.

    Have we ever seen flies on ANY other presidents?

    When I was a kid we called them shit flies, because they’d be found around road apples, pasture paddies, outhouses and the occasional turd in the woods.
    Still applies, I see.

    Say HELP– with a little high squeeky voice that of a fly.

    Turds and rotten smells always draw flies, even in a DC winter.

    My first thought too, USMC2481.

    This guy creeps me the fuck out more and more every day.

    Srsly, did another fly land on him? Maybe it’s a blowfly.

    He reminds me of that creature in Men in Black, the one that had cockroaches oozing out of it.

    Remind me of that old poster:

    “Eat Shit!! Ten billion flies can’t all be wrong!”

    Makes you wonder if half the voters will ever realize what their new emperor is made of. Not one member of the MFM will throw a shoe at that “fly”.

    Why does he always have some kind of Milk Dud©, on his face, all the time? I still can’t figgure it out.

    Joe (#13) it’s Beelzebub, the original “Lord of the Flies:”

    Bacon grease is great, but as an aftershave it has some downsides…..

    Dammit !
    That’s an image I didn’t even think of.
    Ah, well, too late now.
    I’ll leave the imagery as an exercise for the student.
    Oh, and no heads-on-sticks imagery. That would be racist.

    DougM’s cultural ref to the ‘Witch” skit is no longer ‘funny’ to me!
    It reminds me of all the frantic, hysterical, insane bleating &
    blathering of the MSM, pompous congressional egomaniacs,
    & of course, CNN’s masochistic Piers Morgan! Actually, IMHO, the
    dialog in “Witch” was more sane, communicative & logical,
    than a significant number of our leftist’s ranting & ravings!
    Like Krugman & Tingles to name a couple! Plus Feinstein!

    It’s all so easily explained:

    He sits down to pee and stands up to take a dump.

    That way he can sit in his pew without going near a church.
