The Obama Logo

Oh my gosh. This administration is so good at parodying itself, one's almost embarrassed to add his two cents.

Almost.

When was the last presidential administration that had its own logo? Wellsir, this one does:

I flash on two things:

First: Emperor's New Groove: hysterical cartoon/movie. If you haven't seen it, you should. At one point the lovable-dolt stooge Kronk is sneaking off with the unconscious Emperor in a bag, and he's humming this music.

The Emperor, in voiceover narrative, gasps, "Oh, he's doing his own theme music? Big, dumb and tone deaf. I am so glad I was unconscious for all of this."

Ungh. Don't you wish you were?

Second: Ghost. This is a spoiler if you haven't seen it, but — remember the end? When Patrick Swayze's (dead) character is "going into the light," and you barely see all these glowing spectral figures waiting to welcome him? (I can't find a screen-shot, or I'd put it up.)

They look just like the figures behind The One's logo.

So... how can you not think those are the loyal citizens already Passed On by Obama's death panel, saying "Do your part! Step away from life support! Embrace this change! Come into the light of The One!"?

I have never seen such colossal hubris in my life. The dead-giveaway mark is a complete lack of any self-awareness of the degree of self-parody, this daily "What?!" that we get whenever this administration is offered anything but instant and fawning submission.
