Well done! Made me smile, and that’s not easy right now.
A post within a graphic. (*applaudsloudlythenbowslow*)Very nice.
Mary, this is great. So glad you are talented. Thanks.
Well done. Recc’d
That captures the true spirit of Barry Zero.
Just a spoonful of spending cuts…
John Boehner as chimney sweep?
… helps the Medicare go down.
All I can say is “Fidelity Fiduciary Bank” want all our tuppence.
Would recommend twice if I could.
Front page stuff.
Wouldn’t be surprised if Disney comes after you for this. They’ve just been like that over the years. That being said; what might be the possibilities using some of the other classics such as Pinocchio, Cinderella, or The Love Bug? Hmmm.
Nicely done Senator . . . Driftglass, TWolf, others would be proud of yas.
Great poster. Mr. Obama seems even better at the high notes than Julie Andrews. Perhaps it’s because he gives himself so much practice. The one nit is that he doesn’t give us a spoonful of sugar to help his “medicine” go down; he gives us sour wine and 18 year-old malt mixed with cigar ash.
Oh, in case I wasn’t clear. I love it! Three cheers. Hip, Hip…
Um, just discovered that while “hip, hip, hooray” may be rather British and all, thus, in keeping with the poster, it is thought by some that the origins go back to the Crusades… sort of. That particular allusion was not in any way intended by my personal expression of approval here. Thank you.
Scared me. I thought title meant marymc’s work was done. Perish the thought! (Delightful post. rec’d.)
Nicely done, friend!
This is very good. LOL. Obama reminds me of that song by Barney the Dinosaur: “I love you, you love me, we’re a happy family.”
recommended Mary!!! Great work! It sure does tell it like it truly is!!
Timing is everything, perfect for this rotten weekend. 5 days of congress is enough in any week.
Me too! After MMC’s post of late last week in which she expressed a weariness that is both palpable and understandable, and then the lovely comments of taking care and recharging to fight another day, well this was a rare gift of insight-n-delight.
Your clever and sharp, and simply – thanks!
That’s really, really good.
Very good,Mary. I,too, was afraid your headline meant Marymccurnin was throwing in the towel! Thank you for being here.
He hits the high notes better than Julie Andrews because Mitch McConnell has his balls in a jar.
Superb, Mary. Captures it all.
It’s a small jar,apparently.
Mary you have outdone yourself
Since Obama’s work is done, will he go home and not run for re-election? We can hope so!
Feed the geezers, tuppence a bag….
“Just a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down….”
Assuming you can afford to buy the medicine in the first place.
Bye, bye Birdie, we’s love to see you go…great poster, now we need a new candidate and some related bumper stickers.
Not over yet.
Elizabeth Warren ’12
The Republicans win again, thanks to their mole Obama.
Again. Not over yet.
Excellent!! Let’s go fly our kites.
There you go, bringing us back to earth. All looked bright for a fleeting moment…hope had returned.

“If you invest your tuppence
Wisely in the bank
Safe and sound
Soon that tuppence,
Safely invested in the bank,
And you’ll achieve that sense of conquest.”
I believe corporate “tuppence” has been invested in our government most effectively.
I had a large two-line kite once. It worked beautifully for one year, but the next season it wouldn’t fly worth a darn. What happened between us and Obama is somewhat similar.
…the Medicare go down.
a beaut Mary !!!
Totally stealing this! But I wish it weren’t true.
Right now I’m longing for every Congresscritter to be met up by an enraged little ol’ 90something lady in their home district who will whap ‘em upside the head and say “what were you thinking??????”
Where’s the beef, indeed.
…and snap ! the job’s a game !
“For he’s a jolly good fellow, that nobody here can deny.”
Oh, me thinks our Barry does shine during the toast they present him with. In the elegant back rooms.
I was thinking more of “The Wrecking Crew” with Dean Martin as Matt Helm.
The Clone Army is en-route
You obviously need to go out tonight and paint stars on the sky.!
Oops, glue stars to the sky.
Democrats? What Democrats? There are just two wings of the Republican party? The Democrats don’t exist. Only Republicans, Greens, Independents and Libertarians in the State of Texas. Democrats are dead to me and my pocketbook. They will never get my vote again regardless of who the Republicans run.
FANTABULOUS! Love it!
i’ve told this alot but one more time…
my mom used to say “beerfart, the only stupid question is the one you don’t ask”
what’s motu? seen that before here. i thunk and thunk. i give up.
Outstanding. You are the dood abides for the Obama administration.
At least he is doing what he promised to do—uniting the country. [ducks]
Masters of the Universe
A liar feathering his nest
has very little time to rest
while gathering his bags of cash and gold.
And every cut he pushes through
is designed to say “Screw you!
I won, I’m here –
you’re either a lefty or a queer!”
Just a spoonful of sugar…
nicely done mary.
I think it means “masters of the universe.”
i just want another watch party.
TarheelDem’s post, I did not see.
But, it could mean Motherfuckers of the Universe, too.
Well said…let’s hope more folks will think like you & I.
If the local Dems had raised their voice about this maybe the national Dems would of think twice but instead most are quietly going along & sputtering “we are different”.
They can’t be different if they are condoning what the Washington Democrats are doing.
The Democartic party is corrupt.
A ‘fraggin’ depraved performance!
Thanks everyone! It was fun to put together.
and once again he interrupts my tv viewing to say absolutely nothing. All I got out of it was the feeling he was going to break his arm if he patted himself on the back much more.
Makin’ a list and checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s left and right
Retribution will hit that town
Originally, Masters of the Universe. Evolving with our education to MotherFuckers Of the Universe.
you are a genius, girl.
mary–really enjoyed the surprise of something very funny. Thanks.
Damn, Mary. Off the boards today, and I sure am glad I clicked onto your diary; this is a keeper. Pure D-lite!
Is there anyway to print out a poster from your graphic? I’ve got a civil duty gig coming up, a trade show style event. Another fucking boulder to roll up the steep hill of our future. We’re examining 6 issues that effect our local community right now. Presented clearly to the lay person.
*Social program cuts being implemented due to budget constraints
*Union-busting legislation and the assault on workers’ rights
*Meet the Koch brothers in our state politics
*Our prisons and the War On Drugs
*Corporations operating in our state that avoid paying their fair share of taxes[I really want to present this information in a Bake Sale format] Food is part of the social context.
It’s time to think about how you would present this information to people who don’t know.
I was starting to freak out at
I miss edit. I’m really concerned at how ignorant the average good American is. How placid the good American is.
You won’t reach them by making them “read a bunch of boring shit”. Or ask them to put themselves out there in the street.
They literally have no idea of the forces that swirl around them.
I’m turning to cookies and flowers and music.
Like Pan, only different.
Supercalla screwyourbase ballistic, especially for Wall Street
Even though the sound of it is certainly atrocious.
If you say it loud enough you can catapult the hopeless.
He’s frigging intolerable. It’ll be cold comfort to watch him go down in 2012 by his own doing, in this miserable economy.
*standing on chair clapping wildly*
bravo, mary, bravo
…or as Joey Biden would say “This a a BFD”…One wonders, between “them” and US, who gets the “Deal” and who gets the Big Fookin?
Maria, Que Viva!
“My Work Here Is Done!”
This is probably what Hitler thought just before he shot himself.
Great work! Great post! Thank you!
See, others agree with me. How do I know? Well, you received the all approving “clothing spam” as a second reply! I think that is a spam record!
When the posts are that good, they come a spam’n.
Is there a link to find the list of all the Congressman/Senators who voted for this bill
included is the hit Song by Obama and the Congress:
Chim chim cher-oo!
Good luck because we juct screwed you!
Chim chim cher-ee!
They did it.so cast your vote for me!
Votes are here and here
But they haven’t voted on the Sunday compromise yet
Super-congress-fragilistic-auster-i-aladocious… if you’re not daft, the sound it should strike you quite atrocious.. but if we protest loud enough, perhaps they won’t “cut” what they owe us!
He’s sold you out, and grandma too, to banktsers (they’re his donors), and kept on waging endless war but promised pull outs with fixed timelines.
He’ll deal away the “safety net” you’ve paid for all your life, and kept that ugly DOMA law, so if you’re not a heteronorm, don’t think to take a wife.
He’s called us shrill and hectored us, when we’ve noticed his betrayals. Insulted the base, right to our face, his impassioned boosters and supporters.
I “hope” you didn’t vote for this when he promised you some “change”; it seems this man and younger Bush are really quite the same.
To call this man a Democrat’s an insult to our forebears, who fought for labor and the common man, for all those most in need.
It seems these days, with BHO, that DNC goal number one is feeding Reagan greed.
Thanks. I have been sending emails to my Congressman Rush Holt’s office. He seems to be one of the few good congressman. I hope he votes against this bill.
Well done, most excellent graphic. :)
I hope you will do an encore that includes the “Sound of Music” classic, So Long, Farewell, AufW….Good by…It’s time for me to go, etc. Bet you can do it. This is great. Thanks.
You should be able to right-click (or control-click on a Mac) and save the image to your desktop. After that, move it to PhotoShop or iPhoto or what have you, and print your document.
Heh, almost makes me glad I’ve lost my TV service. The “Big Brother” episode I downloaded was nice and clean (from Global TV’s airing in Canada) and completely uninterrupted by Big Zero.
So now I can watch and think about what a bitch Daniele is, without also thinking about what a bitch Barack is. (Can I nominate HIM for eviction? Please?)
Absolutely adorable, adot!
(But I believe you typed “FDL” where you meant “FDR”. We’re awesome but we didn’t actually enact the New Deal, y’know. And also, not in my grave. Yet.)
Absolutely beautiful, Mary! While people are talking about Obama as the heir to Neville Chamberlain’s umbrella, you wove another brolly-wielding Brit into the convo.
To keep the Julie theme going, posts like these “are a few of my FAAAA-vorite things.” :)
3 words for your post, Senator … Fa.Bu.Lous !
Verrrrrrry nice. Well done, mary.
