At Least Dick Cheney Never Really Showed Up as Darth Vader

Filed under: Obama — DRJ @ 6:45 pm

[Guest post by DRJ]

Tonight the White House hosted what looks like a fun Halloween party for 2,000 area schoolchildren. The First Lady dressed as Catwoman and it looks like the President went as “the President”. At a separate reception for children of military and White House staff families, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice appeared in her Halloween costume. [Edit: In case you don’t have time to click the link, she went as Goofy.]

Meanwhile, outside, Code Pink showed up to “taunt local school children with chants about the war in Afghanistan.”


PS — I doubt he was paying tribute to Dick Cheney but Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs did show up as Darth Vader.

  1. Susan Rice appeared in her Joe Biden costume.

  2. It would have been great if Michelle had dressed up as a Wookie or even a Klingon Battle Warrior. Charles Johnson would have gone even more nucking futz.

  3. Goofy. How appropriate.

    Michelle’s costume looks more like leopard lady, but it does appear she is wearing her warrior belt.

  4. I put a suit on a hanger by the front door, to represent our empty suit dirty little socialist President, who has Soros over to the White House to visit all the time.

  5. Well, that’s the best I’ve ever seen Code Pinkos look.

  6. Well, that’s the best I’ve ever seen Code Pinkos look.

    That kid in the Drew Brees costume should have done a cut block on their knees. A few Code Pinkos getting “Tom Brady’d” would have made my day.

  7. Let me see if I have this straight. Someone come along and correct me if I’m wrong. I’m just following the lead of Valerie Jarrett speaking truth to power and all.

    Code Pink is a leftist, anti-war organization. The Democratic Party is a leftist, anti-war organization.

    The House of Representatives, The United States Senate and the Executive Branch of the federal government are controlled by the Democratic Party. And, they will control the Judicial Branch as soon as someone dies or retires.

    So, Code Pink is making a big point of frightening little children in an attempt to stigmatize the power that they, I dunno, support?

    I know the left likes to make fun of conservatives. That’s fair. I don’t have a problem with it. But our goals are pretty simple: less government, lower taxes and a strong defense.

    To be a Democrat, though, you need a rule book bigger than Pelosi’s health-care bill to see which way the wind is blowing without getting whiplash.

  8. By the way, DRJ:

    Excellent headline.

  9. Michelle does look cute.

    I didn’t see The Belt. Are you sure it’s there…?

  10. I don’t see it in this one, Patricia. Mrs. Obama must have given it the night off. Even an accessory needs a break once in a while.

  11. Are you sure that’s a costume Michelle is wearing?

  12. Personally, I think it’s inappropriate for anyone over the age of about 12 to dress up for Halloween.

  13. I’m sure code pink made it the best Halloween ever for those kids. Stupid f==ks.

  14. I thought I saw it, Dana. Maybe I am just so used to seeing it, it appeared before my eyes.

  15. PatAZ, bottom line for me: I never want to be reminded of a dominatrix when I see our First Lady. Unfortunately when I see that belt, that’s just what I am reminded of…ugh.

  16. I think you meant to say that Bobby showed up as Lord Vader’s “special” little brother Tardh.

  17. How scuzzy of a low-life do you have to be to taunt school children that are out trick or treating? What’s next – taunting wounded war vets? Oh wait. They’ve done that too.

    What’s their next brilliant idea? Standing outside kindergartens with signs that say there is no Santa Claus? Do you have to have the morals a notch below child molesters to belong to Code Pink?

  18. DRJ said, “…Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs did show up as Darth Vader.”

    Well, that’s OK, he sure won’t scare the children, but if he came dressed as Reverend Wright he would have scared hell out of the adults.

  19. Talk about going against type!

    Gibbs and Michelle should have swapped costumes.
