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.

  5. vkobaya says:

    Sorry! For some reason, it created duplicate posts.

  6. 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.

  7. RFinLA says:

    omg… too funny!

  8. SouthernGirl2 says:

    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.

  9. tyree says:

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

  10. Jophus says:

    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.

  11. ShirleyGoodnessanMercy says:

    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.

  12. ShirleyGoodnessanMercy says:

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

    Sasha and Malia are just adorable.

  13. Jophus says:

    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.

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

  15. nozzelhead says:

    john, you have a sense of humor?

  16. Jophus says:

    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.

  17. SouthernGirl2 says:

    It’s not funny to me.

  18. barts says:

    That’s worth a show on Maury Povich.

  19. Kozar says:

    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

  20. one small critique about the picture…

    you can’t tell olympia is wearing the pants.

  21. nicho says:

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

  22. Steve_in_CNJ says:

    and then there were 3…

  23. Grrrowler says:

    Looks like Olympia Snobama needs a little more sun…

  24. njprogressive says:

    Hahaha. Very good.

  25. JustAGuy says:

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

    -S

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

  27. megatronbomb says:

    That’s fantastic!

    I’m guessing you just started a new meme!

  28. RSR says:

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

  29. MattNJ says:

    That actually scared me for a second

  30. stldem says:

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