Manolo says, you should see his collection of action figures.
Manolo loves the shoes!
This does my heart good!
At least he wasn’t wearing his Dad jeans!
i happen to like this photograph.
That picture is all kinds of awesome.
Um, don’t forget to take a closer look and check out what the Secret Service guy in the background is doing.
Look at his stance. Hand back for balance, position of feet. He is not wielding like someone who has watched Luke battle Darth Vader on star wars, but like someone who has taken fencing lessons.
He even has his very own Wookie.
“We will rule over all this land, and we will call it… This Land.”
If he’d taken fencing, his saber hand would be down and left to protect his forearm; his wrist would be straight; his knees would be bent a lot more; his lead foot would be pointing at his opponent; his off hand and off shoulder would be back. This is someone who once saw a couple of Errol Flynn movies.
This force is not strong with this one, alas.
I agree with Laserlight; his form is not good.
The Force is not with this one. He is not the hope we are looking for. He is not the one who will bring balance to the budget. He is the Debt Star.
Aren’t there any mirrors in the White House? Why does she still dress like that?
Laser, if he was saber fencing, his off hand would be behind his back.
It looks more like a bastard blend of epee and foil technique.
The look of the kid on his right is priceless.
“ok now what should I do? Pick up another light saber and do battle with the president? Wasn’t I just suppose to shake his hand?”
dustmouse, I happen to think Michelle’s outfit is awesome. The belted cardigan look is a very “in” right now.
As for fencing comments, I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed Obama’s pseudo-fencing stance :) That’s more or less what my stance was when I first started to learn epee fencing.
I thought Emperor Palpatine’s lightsaber was red.
Belted cardigans may be in, but it’s a fashion trend that doesn’t work for her. She can’t pull it together in the front and it only draws the eye to those childbearing, wide hips. Not sure if she’s been overdoing the rich food while vacationing, over indulging at the white house parties, sneaking out for some “healthy produce” at the farmer’s market or just simply a woman of good, hardy stock. Whatever, her fabulous taste in clothes is slipping almost as fast as hubby’s approval rating.
Or…maybe he’s just fooling around? And the security agent is scratching his nose? And don’t we have better things to talk about Michelle than her flipping *cardigan*? If I were her, I’d be wondering why I’d bothered with Princeton and Harvard when clearly a stint with Vogue would have been ever so much more politically savvy.
I like the picture. But I LOVE the one of Obama and one of the girls in a bumper car at the state fair!
Oh and Manolo, *brilliant* title!
