White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and his family are featured in a worshipful profile in this month's Washingtonian magazine.
It's the sort of adoring journalistic exercise reserved for only the most handsome of the power elite. In it you can find out details about the Carney dog (a cousin to presidential pooch Sonny!), and how much the press secretary's tie costs ($135).
But keen observers may notice the kitchen decor in the photo: Soviet propaganda posters. They really are the perfect pop of color whether you are the dour and sincere Nikita Khrushchev or the cheeky press-wrangler for a president who is constantly accused of being a socialist himself.

She joined ABC News in May 2001, and frequently contributes to other ABC News programs, such as World News Tonight and Nightline.

She seems to have a fascination with Russia.
His kid looks like what my husband calls a FFA - future fag of America.
Well, don’t they look like they’re enjoying the high life? Just like the old Politburo officials. These people make me want to projectile vomit.
“She seems to have a fascination with Russia.”
Probably the old USSR instead of Russia today.
Perhaps she dreams of a USSA.
Neo-Soviet propaganda gets plastered all over FR every single day, so... what’s his FR nick?
That looks like our Sunday brunch table every week! Snort!
Also that ridiculous jenga set looks like it could kill you.
Isn’t that pissa. The gulags are hip this year.
How do you know he isn’t?
Those people must eat more plastic fruit than an entire 3rd world nation.
There’s another food there to feed a Bulimic track team.
Michelle would frown on such bounty - that’s a whole egg instead of an egg white, the pastries probably don’t conform to the recommended 50% whole grain content, to say nothing of the carbs. And with so much food covering every surface, the children may not make good choices and overeat as well.
There is so much “fake” in that photograph. It is almost like one of those “spot the error” games in reverse.
Color-coded pajamas on all three
News anchors get made up at work, not before they get out of bed
Two kids, house is spotless (that includes the carefully arranged ‘messy blueberries’ on the counter)
Three people and enough food to feed five times that number is neatly decorating the counters like a restaurant buffet.
Even the kid’s egg looks fake!
I’m pretty sure you can leave off the ‘future’ part.
