The first lady invited military families over to the White House to look at this year’s Christmas decorations, with a theme of “Joy to All.”

It now has 54 Christmas trees, more than 80 seasonal volunteers representing all 50 states, and a gingerbread house that weighs nearly 300 pounds.

    A three hundred pound Ginger Bread House? Gracious, that’ll keep her busy for a few minutes.

    Hmmm…A small forest of Christmas trees, a gingerbread house and a voracious witch. If I were one of those sacrificial–I mean, seasonal–volunteers, I be sure and leave a trail of bread crumbs.

    I used to watch the show on HGTV how they decorate the White House for Christmas every year. I watched the first year with Mo and Bo and couldn’t take it. So, I guess I’ll watch again in 2016…that is unless Hill and Bill are the new residents.

    I can see Obammy squatting outside in the garden wearing nothing but a robe, smoking a butt, chugging a colt 45 beer, yelling “Mooch beat me to the bathroom, Shitter’s Full!”

    @Stirrin – they need seven more trees for the 57 states. Wonder if the volunteers are on the obama-stash receiving end. The military families weren’t invited to volunteer but only “to look at…”

    “Joy To All” ?? Oh, I get it — it’s the secularized version of “Joy To The World”, in which THE LORD has come, let earth receive her King.

    I’m so glad I’m on this side of 50 and I won’t be running into any of these people in Heaven.

    @AbigailAdams — They were ordered to volunteer. And to applaud. Vomiting afterward was voluntary.

    She said, “officianal”

    I listened twice. It’s at the beginning of her laconic speech.

    After that, all I could focus on was the two black blobs of lord knows what on her eyelids. For about 5 seconds. I had to stop the tape.

    Michelle, stop with all this ridiculous pretense and just get it over with – tell us YOU HATE CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

    Ostentatious trophy displays of what once was the wealth of the American people.
    Beware that one day the People decide they want to take it back.
