    What a sad sword.

  2. gocart mozart says:

    The sword is crescent shaped. What does that tell you? This can only raise further questions.

  3. R. Johnston says:

    So International Talk Like a Pirate Day is really a stealth holiday in propagandistic support of our imperial marxist islamic atheist nazi overlord Barry Soetoro?

  4. KC45s says:

    Why is Paul McCartney dressed like a girl?

  5. Mr. Trend says:

    A Socialist Muslim Pirate, no doubt.

  6. Malaclypse says:

    The photograph showed the son, but my eye gravitated toward the mother. That first glimpse was surprising — the stout, pale-skinned woman in sturdy sandals, standing squarely a half-step ahead of the lithe, darker-skinned figure to her left.

    Okay, there is a whole lot of nuts here, but stout???

    • Warren Terra says:

      To be slightly fair, the author is talking about a different, later picture:

      The photograph, taken on a Manhattan rooftop in August 1987 and e-mailed to me 20 years later, was a revelation and a puzzle.

      That said, someone has failed quite badly in creating at least the online version of this article, as the article leads off with a whole paragraph about this 1987 photo but the photo is not in the online version of the article (perhaps it will be in the magazine version?).

      And the paragraph is really quite absurd, an unsuccessful attempt at a flourish to motivate interest in a topic that, frankly, needs no motivation: this woman led a fascinating life in its own right, even if she hadn’t had and raised a fascinating and important son. As you note, it’s unkind about her figure, totally unnecessarily and irrelevantly.

      Really, the whole article was something of a disappointment. Apparently Ms. Scott has written a whole book about Dr. Dunham; we can hope that this book has, per page, less gossipy nonsense about her personal life and her relationship with her husband, and more about her work, her ideas, and her ideals. In any case, it couldn’t easily have more gossipy nonsense per page than the article does. Presumably, there’s ample material for a serious book about Dr. Dunham – Dunham’s thesis alone is several hundred pages, and that’s before you start interviewing people who’ve known her, something Ms. Scott clearly has done. I suppose, though, that someone – and I hope it was her editor at the Times and not Ms. Scott herself – decided that the allegedly juicy stuff about Dr. Dunham’s relationship with her second husband was the appropriate material to excerpt for the magazine.

      • BigHank53 says:

        One of my minor hobbies is collecting wingnut literature from the fifties and sixties. America: Listen! by Frank L. Kluckhorn* (A Ranking Officer of the US State Dept.) is one of these. While there are many ways to approach criticism of the Kennedy administration’s actions, and Kluckhorn indulges in all of them, there are also vituperative personal insinuations about Kennedy’s health, the stability of his marriage, and filthy Irish immigrants that were his ancestors.

        I hold no great hopes for Ms. Scott’s book: there is a large and healthy audience of those who want their biases confirmed.

        *No, really.

  7. The Donalde says:

    C’mon, these photos of Ann Dunham are way more interesting than the black African child (and future Radical-in-Chief).

  8. Kyle says:

    Cue the Birthtards with “definite proof” that the grass in the photograph is a species found not in Hawaii but in Kenya.

    Well, the Hillary Clinton Campaign warned us that he’s a Somali native:

    …and now it turns out he’s one of their Pirates. No wonder he can’t answer the phone at 3am. Thats when he’s on the high seas.

    • Even as an Obot, I maintain that showing pictures of your opponent dressed up and looking silly is fair game.

      Tank helmets, fezzes, clean-room gear, what have you. Bring it on.

      • Manju says:

        this is the plausible deniability practitioners of southern strategies hope to trigger. Since Bush was portrayed as monkey, it’s OK to portray Obama as one.

        Obama dressed in Somali garb has racial connotations. Dukakis in a tank does not. Remember, Birtherism began on the left with Clinton fanatics. Clinton surrogates pushed the secret Muslim meme. And then one of them went on TV to claim he is a Somali native.

        In that clip, Pat Buchanan was practically Malcolm X to Stephanie Tubbs Jones’ George Wallace. Surreal.

  10. Tempted says:

    The lady look’s like a alien.

  11. Gus says:

    I can’t believe no one has pointed out what a cute little kid Obama was.

  12. Here, pictured with Liz Phair in the early 1990s…

    My God, that’s funny!

    UN PRESIDENT TIM KALEMKARIAN, US PRESIDENT TIM KALEMKARIAN, US SENATE TIM KALEMKARIAN, US HOUSE TIM KALEMKARIAN: BEST MAJOR CANDIDATE.
