    That has to be the classic manger trying to brow beat an employee with out getting dragged off to HR look. Only problem for Josh is Obama is the president and doesn’t have to worry about Josh giving him a crappy job review.

    I love this so much, and not just for crazyass Josh. Ann is looking at Obama like he’s something stuck to the dog’s behind. How do you be a candidate’s wife for 20 years and still be completely unable to hide your emotions? Guess there are some basic human skills money can’t buy.

    Can someone please post just the clip of Obama telling Romney off for Libya comments? I can’t find it and I won’t get a chance to watch the whole debate until tonight. People on another thread said Obama showed his “This is my drone face” look to Romney and I really want to see it.

    Ann Romney looked VERY unhappy with her Mitt right after the debate – dreams disappearing at the hands of this guy who couldn’t have even been ordained in her awesome church just a few short decades ago.

    here’s the transcript aimai:

    MS. CROWLEY: Governor, if you want to reply just quickly to this, please.

    MR. ROMNEY: Yeah, I — I certainly do. I certainly do. I — I think it’s interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack, he went in the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror. You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. It was not a spontaneous demonstration.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed.

    MR. ROMNEY: Is that what you’re saying?

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed, Governor.

    MR. ROMNEY: I — I — I want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Get the transcript.

    MS. CROWLEY: It — he did in fact, sir.

    So let me — let me call it an act of terrorism — (inaudible) —

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy? (Laughter, applause.)

    MS. CROWLEY: He did call it an act of terror.

    There was an article in the Times about her stylist, I’d never heard of him; he did some work for Nancy Reagan & I believe Laura Bush as well. Got in some nasty, snarky shots at Michelle for wearing “discount” clothing from J. Crew, said it would fall apart immediately. He came across as an aging, wannabe stylist to the stars. Definitely second or third tier forever.

    She doesn’t seem to have created a personal style for herself. She seems to dress on the principle of “I like the color and design”. Maybe she goes to too many different stores and just buys what she sees and like.

    Yes, the shawl (or whatever it is) does look like a remnant. Or as my mother might have called it — Eastern European Bedspread.

    If Romney loses, I’m considering writing one of those generic “we regret to inform you you’re not hired” corporate letters and signing it “Sincerely, The People You Like Being Able To Fire.” Possibly to send to his campaign, post on Facebook, troll right-wing blogs with, or whatever.

    People know Ann Romney has money. She’s in a very prominent position. So people wonder why she dresses so poorly. It’s clear her clothes are expensive, but they’re poorly chosen for her or by her. She could project a stronger image if she dressed differently.

    [Romney’s] not someone who’s just giving us B.S. and telling us what he thinks we want to hear. Yeah, this abortion issue offends me. However, I don’t really think that’s him in his heart, and it may be just the Christian right pushing him, but once he gets in, he’ll be the man he is and true to himself.

    And that, ladies and gentleman, is the face the second coming of George W Bush has chosen to wear.

    It’s not too late to dodge that bullet — vote for Obama.

    That face does an amazing job of looking angry and petulant at the saame time. It is very…Joffrey.

    Here is an idea that will outdraw all of the debates and provide some most needed laughter to everyone who is exhausted from all this bullshit. Michelle and ann in a no holds barred street fight. I would pay to see Michelle take ann’s lily white fat loose ass to the woodpile.

    @LanceThruster: I loved that series! The animations were – no surprise – somewhat uneven in quality, but I consider even that something of a positive attribute. Lots of entertainment and education to be had there, and sometimes these two qualities were found in the same work.

    I need to check on DVD availability of those old shows.

    Zander, Thanx for the pic of sour-faced Ann R.
    I’d noticed that shot last night. Wondered how to find it again to check that she looked as angry as I thought.

    Do you think that both spouses wearing pink was part of the debate rules? Could the debate commission be that idiotic?

    @RinaX: Is Josh the son who took the illegal pages of notes from Mitt after the first debate? You know, those pages that Mitt tried to put in his right pocket the in his left before his son took them from him?

    Hey, man, you don’t talk to the Willard Mechanism. You listen to him. The man’s enlarged my mind. He’s a poet warrior in the classic sense. I mean sometimes he’ll… uh… well, you’ll say “hello” to him, right? And he’ll just walk right by you. He won’t even notice you. And suddenly he’ll grab you, and he’ll throw you in a corner, and he’ll say, “Do you know that ‘if’ is the middle word in life? If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you”… I mean I’m… no, I can’t… I’m a little man, I’m a little man, he’s… he’s a great man! I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across floors of silent seas…

    @Steve Crickmore: Steve, if I were a public person whose photo was always being taken, I’d have about a zillion opportunities to make fun of myself. It’s just a thing. You get a lot of photos taken, a certain percentage of them are going to be weird. I’m usually highly sensitive to wanton meanness, but I don’t think this is such a situation.

    Also, I think Josh bears a startling resemblance to Aimee Mann, and I love Aimee Mann. Also, cckids, Aimee appeared in a Buffy episode, although she was not a demon or a minion. Her line was, “I hate playing vampire towns”. I agree with you and am currently giggling.

    Josh totally got that look from the Donald, who tried to use it against Obama at the White House Correspondent’s dinner last year. You know, when Obama was lauding Trump for firing Gary Busey instead of Meat Loaf, and how those were the types of decisions that would keep him up at night (as opposed to the decision to take out Bin Laden, which he’d basically just made). The Donald was giving him the same stone-faced-scowl-with-evil-eye look the whole time. And to similar effect.

    @Violet: I think there’s something about the New England wealthy Republican WASP aesthetic that values the dowdy, played down look; i.e. it’s not just her. Money is important for its own sake, not to actually indulge in sensual pleasures. Also, style is…tacky.

    Mind you it doesn’t explain the Pepto pink: the signature shade should be that particular shade of faded clapboard grey-blue.
