The votes are in, it’s official: the butts have it.

Talk about being way ahead of the curve: 2014 has officially been named “The Year of the Butt.”

whoa that's a really big buttWay, waaaay ahead of the curve

And suddenly everybody is covering this phenom: there’s the PG-rated Yahoo version:

From Instagram sensation Jen Selter and her “belfies” (butt + selfie), to Kim Kardashian’s bare-it-all photoshoot in Paper magazine, it’s clear backsides are taking a front seat. Not to mention Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea’s “Booty,” Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” and Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” bringing up the rear.

And the R-rated Vogue report:

Recently, Nicki Minaj remixed the original butt song by Sir Mix-A-Lot, “Baby Got Back,” into “Anaconda,” driving the point home with extreme twerking, blatant close-up shots of her booty, and cut-to-the-chase lyrics: “F*** those skinny b*tches in the club/I wanna see all the big fat a** b*tches in the mother****ing club.”

Butt it is the XX-rated Daily Beast coverage that really piled on. They expanded the glorification of skanky female butts to include the  salacious male butt as well (although apparently the real credit for that goes to an ABC TV show called How to Get Away With Murder):

More than 20 million people tuned in to a broadcast network drama and saw two gay men have explicit sex. That’s a watershed moment.

“Watershed moment?” Well I suppose that’s one thing you might call it. Decent people would call it cultural rot. And yes, I blame Obama.

get yer butt off the counter

Because real presidents don’t slide their butts down the counter at the local Shake Shack, I don’t care who you are. I’m not saying that it’s an impeachable offense, butt it certainly is offensive. That sort of exploit is reserved exclusively for self promoting performance artists…oh wait…

_Obama-cowbell

Anyway, back to my point: 2014 was a bumper year for the big butts. Don’t worry if you don’t have one yourself, as with all things of fashion, they will eventually ebb in size and stature. After all, it’s not like this is the first time that someone decided to exploit an ass for personal gain and profit.

soros_puppet

Nor will it be the last. Butt in due course all the irrational exuberance surrounding the pulchritude of the big butt will wane and the world will revert to a saner time when people once again acknowledge the butt’s real purpose in life.

Until then, try not to be jealous:

necktie for your butt

And try to endure all the twerking with a sense of humor. Remember, the twerking crowd consists of people, with nothing else to recommend themselves, flaunting their assets - so to speak.

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE!!!

The Audacity of Kwanzaa

No word yet on how the Wons will be celebrating Kwanzaa this year. Unfortunately they were unable to make it to the big Kwanzaa parade in Los Angeles. BO was too busy playing golf with the boys – oblivious of the wedding plans that were squashed in order to accommodate his tee time - and MO was too busy having her nails done or something.

However I did snag this gif of Lady M practicing her Kwanzaa Karols:

Anyway, it doesn’t sound like the Wons missed anything, fake news reports to the contrary: In LA, CBS Station Pretends There Was a Real Kwanzaa Parade Yesterday

KwanzaaNonParade122614inLA

Lack of interest didn’t stop a good opportunity to hype a fake holiday however:

CBS Los Angeles - Organizers named the theme of this year’s parade “Perfect YOUR Temple,” or body. They said it was “a call to arms in our constant and ongoing efforts to `perfect’ our lives.”

 

mo garden1What pray tell do you do when your temple’s already perfect?

The gwaride began at the corner of Crenshaw and Adams boulevards, headed south along Crenshaw to Leimert Park, where organizers held a “Black Lives Matter” rally.

 

Cop Lives Dont Matter GraffitiAll lives matter, it’s just that some matter more than others

Some participants walked the parade carrying signs underlining important issues to the community, such as police brutality, home foreclosures, judicial corruption, transparency in government and environmental racism.

Because nothing says “holiday” like community organizing for social justice. And “shopping.”

fergusonshopping in fergusonPoster boy for the “Pants Up Don’t Loot” backlash

During Kwanzaa, a candelabrum called a “kinara” is lit and ears of corn representing each child in the family are placed on a traditional straw mat.

kwanzaa-seven-symbolsIs it racist of me to think this vignette looks…racist?

African foods such as millet, spiced pepper balls and rice are often served. Some people fast during the holiday, and a feast is often held on the final night.

Okay, 1) uh, NO to the millet, spiced pepper balls and rice. 2) Fast? On vacation? That’s a joke, right? 3) Every night is a feast around here.

Kwanzaa was created in 1966 by Maulana Karenga, now chair of Africana Studies at Cal State Long Beach, in what he called “an audacious act of self-determination.”

Well, we do know a thing or two about “audacity.”

Still Peevish After All These Years

S. Jay Olshansky, a public health professor at the University of Illinois, set out to prove that Big Guy isn’t aging any faster than the rest of us. And amazingly - as all well-constructed studies can - he proved it!

An Illinois professor set out to disprove the age old presumption that the relentless stress of America's top job makes our Commander-in-Chiefs age in fast-forward.

The conclusion: President Obama, like most presidents, is aging no differently from the rest of us.

Obama_aging_2013-300x237Peevish Then, Peevish Now

What makes Olshansky an expert on aging? Well he’s a professor - of public health – so therefore he’s an expert on everything. Or at least everything that has anything to do with your health and welfare as determined by ObamaCare.

Anyway, I have no reason to dispute his analysis: most of the rest of us have aged about 25 years since Big Guy took office too. So I guess his hypothesis is about right.

Meanwhile, what about Putin: the man who was, then wasn’t, then was again President of Russia? He’s been in office now for 14 years. In fact when he first became President, Bubba was still in office! Oddly enough, he doesn’t seem to have aged a day – who’s the Big Dawg now!

Vladimir-Putin-Threatens-World-War-3-Says-Russia-Could-Invade-Europe-Within-Two-Days-665x385

24-platon-clintonWho’s your daddy?

Anyway, as BO ages at the same rate as the rest of us, our MO seems to have discovered the fountain of youth: just keep those old hostilities alive! And festering. That way no matter what they say about you, you can just throw it right back in their faces. That’s the price they pay for succumbing to the racist stereotype of the “angry black woman.”

mo angryNothing seems to keep you young and relevant like racism

Oh, and by the way, don’t write Big Guy off just yet: he’s still got that pen, and he knows how to use it.

obama with this pen Presidential Assault Weapon

"I haven't used the veto pen very often since I've been in office," Obama said in an NPR interview airing Monday. "Now, I suspect, there are going to be some times where I've got to pull that pen out."

Or, as they say around Washington, when you’re done, just stick a pen in it. Or is that a fork?

In any event, I think it’s done.

On Crime, Cops, and Guns

Good on you Detroit!

DetroitAs 2014 enters its final week, the city is on pace to record its fewest homicides since 1967.

The fewest homicides recorded since 1967 – the year of the infamous Detroit riots that began the long slow decline of a great American city. That is a major accomplishment. Only 298 this year, as opposed to the 281 recorded in 1967. This isn’t as impressive when compared on a per capita basis, as there are about a million (literally) fewer people living in Detroit now than there were in ‘67, butt still - not bad for city whose obituary has not only been written butt published.

DOA_Detroit

And it’s not just murders that are down:

Most other violent crimes, including carjackings and robberies were also on pace to drop in 2014, although justifiable homicides are up, from 16 year-to-date in 2013 to 22.

What can we thank for this completely unexpected decline? Community organizers coming to town to advise the city that water is a human right? Yeah, probably not.

jesse jackson al sharpton detroit

Maybe part of the credit should go to Detroit’s new top cop, Police Chief, James Craig:

james craig

"People feel the need to protect themselves," Craig said. "Maybe that's helping drive down robberies: Maybe the criminals are afraid they'll be confronted by someone who has a gun."

 

carry a gun calmly

“There’s a number of CPL (concealed pistol license) holders running around the city of Detroit. I think it acts as a deterrent. Good Americans with CPLs translates into crime reduction. I learned that real quick in the state of Maine.” (Police Chief James Craig on WJR 760 AM)

Oh sure, the number of “justifiable homicides” in the city went up considerably (2200% above the national average) as citizens protect themselves butt I don’t think anyone can say that Detroit isn’t onto something here.

So while some across the nation still vilify the men and women who comprise our police forces that maintain a boundary between chaos and order,

police189

in Detroit they would like to have a few more cops, as the lingering effects of bankruptcy has left them without funds to adequately police the streets anymore. Because in Detroit when you call 911 for help more likely than not you’ll have to get in queue.

So follow the advice of your Police Chief and arm up Detroit, because your thin blue line is thinner than ever:

il_340x270.418209832_aowt

and they can use your help.

Thanks Sammie, and you can keep the shirt.

Although he announced his plans earlier this month, we were hoping against HOPE that he would change his mind. So it is with a heavy heart that I must report that the rumors are true - we are losing chef Sammie Kass; he’s moving to New York. To be with his new wife, Ms.NBC news hostess, Alex Wagner. She’s a former political activist and music-magazine editor, so she’s probably got a great future at Ms.NBC.

img-fromthemagazinealexwagnersamkass_130656184131The foxy couple, in an unposed photo for Vogue

Here’s how Vogue described the power couple: 

She’s a rising television-news star. He’s the consummate White House insider.”

Who knew we would one day live in a world where talking heads of 3rd rate cable networks would be considered a “television-news star” and Big Guy’s chef would be known as a “consummate White House insider.”

And while it was a blow when we lost our pie chef, Bill Yosses,

pie caseHey, how would you like a job in the White House?

losing Sammie will be like losing a member of the family. So let’s spend a few moments to look back on Sam’s awesome accomplishments, beginning with his humble days back in Chicago as personal chef to the Wons when Lady M was a big shot Vice President for “Community Affairs” for the University of Chicago Hospitals and Big Guy was just the Jr. Senator from Illinois, on his way to being America’s Jr. President.

Apparently Tony Rezko threw Sammy in as part of the package deal on the Wons’ new house in Hyde Park which also included a spare lot and special pricing.

Meanwhile, Sammie was teaching Lady M everything she knows about nutrition:

sam mo peasHi! My name is Sam Kass, and I taught MO how to eat her peas!

Sam Kass has been a fixture at the executive mansion, serving up nutrition policy alongside meals for Obama, his wife, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha. He was not only their personal chef but senior adviser for nutrition policy, giving him a seat at the table where administration officials hashed out everything from updated food labels,”

“and I assume will be the greatest job of my life," Kass told the Journal.

"And with the work he has done to inspire families and children across this country to lead healthier lives, Sam has made a real difference for our next generation," he added.

Greetings On Boxing Day; And the First Day of Kwanzaa

So; another Christmas goes in the record book. That means today is Boxing Day – the day originally designated to give your servants a small token of your appreciation.

Now days it’s just another excuse to go shopping to pick up stuff on sale that you don’t need, don’t really want and will eventually end up in the Goodwill or Salvation Army box.

salvation army

So shop with abandon!

It’s also the first day of Kwanzaa, celebrated with abandon around here, along with all the other Winter Holidays.  Yesterday the Wons made their annual visit to the troops and issued their annual Christmas greetings to the nation.

622x350 (1)

They will be issuing their annual Kwanzaa greetings later today, and I suspect it will be similar to past messages such as this one, from 2010:

"Michelle and I extend our warmest thoughts and wishes to all those who are celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season. Today is the first of a joyful seven-day celebration of African-American culture and heritage. The seven principles of Kwanzaa — Unity, Self-Determination, Collective Work and Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity and Faith — are some of the very values that make us Americans."

Even though many, including Moonbattery pointed out at the time that those values make you more Synbionese than American as they are the same concepts symbolized by the seven deadly cobras in the flag of the socialist Symbionese Liberation Army:

Actually, these are the values that would make you not American, but Symbionese. They Kwanzaa was invented by 1960s black power radical Ron Everett, aka Maulana Karenga. Even in the swamps of hippie era radical politics, Karenga stood out as a particularly unsavory character. His United Slaves outfit murdered rival Black Panthers, and Karenga himself was convicted of torturing women, using vices and hot soldering irons among other implements. Kwanzaa was created explicitly to divide Americans by alienating blacks from the Christian holidays that unite us.

Anyway, did you notice that Lady M wore her usual holiday sparkle headband to greet the troops?

hawaiiShe wears it every year: here she is in 2012 on the phone with NORAD tracking Santa’s progress (note to self: a landline? To NORAD? Maybe it’s time to upgrade our technology.)

norad_mo 2012jpg_thumb[6]

And really rockin’ the look again last year:

Michelle Obama President Obama Arrives Holiday hawaii2013

- when she turned 50, and refused to dress the part.

So I don’t think you should try to read anything into it, it just makes her feel festive - and young. And rich. Which is why she has so many old boxes she can afford to donate to the little people, in the original spirit of boxing day.

Heav'nly hosts sing Alleluia; Christ the Savior is born.

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed…until such time as an angel appeared to  the false king named Barack and said unto him: “That’s right Barack…you didn’t build that yourself; somebody else made that happen.”
Behold his glory:

Nativity Gerard_van_Honthorst

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
