Honoring Neil Whatshisname

Jim Treacher ran across this. It’s Obama’s tribute to the astronaut dude that died or something:

Yep. Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon, dies, and Obama honors him with a picture of … Obama.

Kinda makes me wonder how Obama would honor others on their passing. Any suggestions?

  1. Presiden Obama Honors Those Who Have Passed:

    “I’d like to say a word or two honoring the passing of Phyllis Diller, an empowered comedienne, a woman who boldly overcame her image issues. Now, as I was telling Sasha and Malia, if they had visual issues I’d be OK with their doing something about it. I mean I wouldn’t want them saddled with an ugly face.”

    “I heard Tony Scott passed away, under mysterious circumstances, near a bridge, which spanned a road. Now he didn’t make those movies all by himself, and his death may not have occurred all by itself. Not to mention that those bridges and roads, like the one near where Tony Scott was found, remind me of the roads and bridges in Selma which Black folk, like me, have had trouble crossing at one time or other.”

    “Scott McKenzie passed on the other day, and apparently he was the guy who wrote that “flowers in your hair” song back in the 1960s and he wrote some songs for The Monkees too. Now I never wore flowers in my hair, but I did play with monkeys as a youth in Indonesia, and Scott’s song, I’m told, was big with white kids back then who dropped out, ran away from home and became part of that San Francisco thing. I never got too into that, I was too busy grooving to Al Green, The Jonzun Krew, and Grandmaster Flash, but if you got into that, well Scott was probably your man.”

  2. Now, on the anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, I would just like to say what a very fine bedroom he made for me and my family to use here in the White House. Really, it’s just outstanding.

  3. And before he left this world, George Washington chopped down that cherry tree that would have taken up so much room in the White House garden, and you know Michelle really needed that sunny space for her arugula and broccoli.

    [And yes, I know that lettuce and broccoli prefer cooler weather and can tolerate partial shade, AND that the cherry tree story was apocryphal and supposedly took place in GW’s childhood, and nowhere near the White House (which wasn’t even finished during GW’s term in office) – but this is supposed to be Barack “57 states” Obama speaking, not someone who has an actual working knowledge of American history and popular myth.]

  4. Sigh. I hate to be the moderate here, but we really have to give the POTUS a pass on this one due to what the Armstrong family said about looking up at the moon and winking to remember Neil Armstrong.

  5. CCO – Message received.

    But… no wink from Obama.

    Sorry, I’m just a bad, bitter man.

    To paraphrase Homer Simpson, at this point, I couldn’t give Obama a pass on the passingest day of my life if I had an electrified passing machine.

  6. Oh well, what was it they told us in math class–if you assume the negative, and then contradict your assumption, it’s the best proof. I assumed POTUS had done the right thing the right way, and he proved me wrong.

  7. Oh, I wish we could have hooked that brain reader up for this moment. “Oh, wow. Venus and the moon are almost lined up to make a star and crescent. How cool would it be to look up in the sky and see a hammer and sickle?”
