Shot by famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz. She really did capture the essence of the Obama girls.

    I don’t like that either, Gridlock!

    Try being nice!

    Olympia isn’t the one to blame in this. She’s a Republican and should be viewed and treated as such. She wasn’t the one who gave herself so much power over the health care bill.

    This is one of the most powerful things I have ever read.

    Sorry! For some reason, it created duplicate posts.

    I am actually disappointed with this. He is still the President and they are still his family. To disrespect them like that is not funny.

  • RFinLA

    omg… too funny!

  • SouthernGirl2

    No it’s not. It’s disrespecting the President’s family!

    It’s a beautiful family portrait and it’s been mucked up!

    I don’t like it at all.

  • tyree

    wow!who knew? whos the white guy in the back?

    Touche. :-) I think I’m just grumpy. For some reason I see Leibovitz as a brand or style, and I need to put this photo into context.

  • ShirleyGoodnessanMercy

    In fairness, this is a FAMILY photo. I’ve never seen a family photo by Leibovitz before. Nor have I ever seen a family portrait with an “it” quality. You need to pose alone for that, I think.

  • ShirleyGoodnessanMercy

    Totally adorable. Thank you Jesus for evicting the Bushes before our country totally collapsed.

    Sasha and Malia are just adorable.

  • http://www.sciencedaily.com Jophus

    That is really what I meant. Her stuff is usually organic and just has that “it” quality, doesn’t it? This seems like an average photo with an above average subject. I was just unimpressed.

    I thought it was nice. Not very Leibovitz like, but a sweet photo.

  • nozzelhead

    john, you have a sense of humor?

  • http://www.sciencedaily.com Jophus

    Am I the only one who is unimpressed with the real photo? The girl on the right is like squatting and twisted like a pretzel with her mom.

  • http://AMERICAblog.com/ John Aravosis

    That is too funny!

    It’s not funny to me.

  • barts

    That’s worth a show on Maury Povich.

  • Kozar

    A bit Off topic, but couldn’t the fact that this photo job was given to Annie be considered another government bailout?
    just saying,,,

    great photoshop btw hahahaha

    one small critique about the picture…

    you can’t tell olympia is wearing the pants.

  • nicho

    Funny — and probably the first of many. Annie never should have left that space in the middle — just begging for a Photoshop job.

  • Steve_in_CNJ

    and then there were 3…

    Looks like Olympia Snobama needs a little more sun…

  • njprogressive

    Hahaha. Very good.

  • JustAGuy

    I’m waiting for Chris Crocker’s response video on YouTube: “Leave Olympia ALONE!!!”

    -S

  • FunMe

    I know it’s Halloween, but don’t scare me that way!

  • megatronbomb

    That’s fantastic!

    I’m guessing you just started a new meme!

  • RSR

    ha, took me a minute; I had already seen the photo, so I wasn’t looking too closely…

  • MattNJ

    That actually scared me for a second

  • stldem

    I love it! Obama sure seems to like Olympia more than he does us progressives.
