Well, it seems that between endlessly discussing the potential Kangaroo Trials of Bush administration lawyers that might well be in the offing, as well as their sick obsession with the Palins and of course, the Chocolate Speedway Lover (this Hilton freak, who no one with a functioning brain had ever heard of), one network decided to set that aside for a few minutes and instead go into a deeply moving and involving segment that was devoted to, of all things, paper cutouts of Barack and Michelle Obama. (Collect them all!) I am sure they are covered in the Porkulus Bill anyway).
While some of the anchors seemed to think that the likenesses were not very accurate, it seems to me that these cutouts hit the nail on the head, since the recent foreign policy directions of the administration make Obama out to be a Paper Kitten. And thugs and dictators worldwide have taken notice.
On Thursday’s CBS Early Show, co-host Julie Chen made an important news announcement: “Well, the latest Obama paper dolls are out and we have got them right here to check them out.” Chen went on to explain that the collectible books of paper cut outs of Barack and Michelle Obama: “…came out when — during the whole campaign…And then now this is the inaugural.”
Chen later asked: “Do we think that this looks like Barack and Michelle?” Co-host Maggie Rodriguez responded: “Absolutely not. Not even a little bit.” Early Show medical correspondent Jennifer Ashton was also on set, and chimed in: “No, he [Obama] looks so much better in person.” Rodriguez then added: “Not even a little bit, it’s not their faces. Those are not their faces.” Chen explained: “It’s more Michelle than — it’s not Barack’s face, but it’s more Michelle. Because I think they have her eyebrows down.”
After a detailed discussion of the dolls’ likeness to the Obamas, co-host Harry Smith proudly exclaimed: “Well, I’m very excited to get my collectible campaign edition, so.”
Is the Biden collection far behind? And will it be made of recycled paper? You know, sort of like the Veep’s speeches.
