[High Praise! to American Digest]

The biggest friends of the welfare state would rather see the welfare state disappear than publicly say “Please” or “Thank you” to the taxpayers who make their favorite programs possible.

Black and white

The Dick Van Dyke Show

Black and white TV

So, the president thought the GOP convention was from the era of black & white TV.

Lots of thoughts ran through my mind when I read that.

First was, how would he know?

All of NBC’s programming was in color in 1965. The other two commercial networks, ABC and CBS, were broadcasting all prime-time in color the next TV season, with daytime following by Spring 1968. Even NET (now PBS) was all-color by Spring ’68.

Obama didn’t even move to this country until three years later. So, how would he know?

Reruns? TV shows from an earlier time?

So, the GOP reminded him of loving families where everyone works together to make things better for everyone?

And that’s supposed to be an insult?

This week’s uncaptioned picture for you to play with:

Gotta be Hunter for knowing his 40-year-old nun-based sitcoms.

What say you?

#1: When creating lolbama! pictures, please caption with either black or white text, as colors like red and yellow tend to blur badly when I compress the images.

#2: Standard image size for these posts is 350px wide by whatever high. If you can have your images 350px wide before you caption them, I won’t end up shrinking your captions into illegibility when I re-size the images.

MAKE YOUR OWN: The free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

STYLE NOTE: Short captions are usually better. Your goal is 10 words or less, with humor value tending to increase exponentially as the number of words approaches 1.

Send your submissions to and – if they aren’t obscene (IMAO is a PG-13 site) and don’t suck too terribly bad – I’ll post them for you. Remember to include your name (and blog URL, if applicable) so I know who to thank.
