Posted on 04/25/2014 2:43:22 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Thursday on NBC's sitcom "Parks and Recreation's" season finale, Michelle Obama appeared as herself in a scene where Amy Poehler's character Leslie Knope, a unusually dedicated government bureaucrat, is stunned into a stupor of excitement when she has a chance encounter with one of her heroes, the first lady of the United States, while interviewing for a new government job with the National Park Service...

I watched one episode of that show. I figured it would be cancelled before the season was out. I guess it just goes to show you peoples’ taste. The same kind of people who that that Portlandia was funny, too I guess.
“Cult worship. A Miami tv station ran a snippet of MO’s cameo...saying she had “comedy acting chops”.....meanwhile, gasoline and meat prices are soaring....but hey, Michelle Obama is on tv, so it is all good.”
It is more than that; they are trying to fabricate a “legacy” among Americans That Matter (not the usual gibsmedats that already worship them). This presidency will be remembered in the same way as Jimmy Carter is, and they are trying to doctor that image now. They infuse her into kids’ TV shows and anywhere else possible to feign relevance; she will be the “fitness first lady” (as absurd as that is), I guess “the comedian” as well, the racial healing first lady, blah blah blah...
NBC? What the hell is that?
Not at all unexpected. The Knope character is an over the top democrat worshiper with pictures of Hillary Clinton and Madeline Albright on the wall. I’d watch the show for Ron Swanson alone.
Knope sounds like a shoo-in for Lois Lerner's old job. Would need no training or ramp-up, could hit the ground running on day one killing tea-party applications.
what has this country come to?we have propped up these two boring politicians,no accomplishments,personalities of a turnip,yet the media makes them out to be A-list celebrities.I want to vomit.
They managed to fundamentally transform the USA into a facist oligarchy.
To paraphrase the Veep, "It's a big effing deal".
God,can you imagine if Hitler got the same treatment in his years? Cameo appearences on various German sit-coms? (like Hogan Heroes?)
It’s NBC. What do you expect? The other networks are slavishly in the tank for Obama and communism. NBC takes it to the next level.
I usually like the show. They are liberals, but sometimes the writing is witty and the Ron Swanson character is funny.
But last night, as soon as I saw the wookie, I got up and left the room. I had spent all day driving home from northern Vermont. I was tired and generally pissed off at the world. I did not need THAT.
I went to the office for two hours, until Vikings was on. A little debauchery right before bed makes me sleep like a baby.
Hitler WAS treated like this in his day.
The medium was different. But the result, the same.
Portlandia is funny. At least the episodes I saw. It’s an excellent skewering of the lifestyles of leftists.
Ron swanson is the man. some of his quotes
The government is a greedy piglet that suckles on a taxpayers teat until they have sore, chapped nipples.
Capitalism: Gods way of determining who is smart and who is poor.
There is only one bad word: taxes.
Honor: if you need it defined, you dont have it.
Only women shave beneath the neck.
“Am I interuppting anything important?” Ron, “Impossible, I work for the government.”
On his feelings about the Parks Department: Ive been quite open about this around the office: I dont want this parks department to build any parks, because I dont believe in government. I think that all government is a waste of taxpayer money. My dream is to have the park system privatized and run entirely for profit by corporations, like Chuck E. Cheese. They have an impeccable business model. I would rather work for Chuck E. Cheese.
My idea of a perfect government is one guy who sits in a small room at a desk, and the only thing hes allowed to decide is who to nuke. The man is chosen based on some kind of IQ test, and maybe also a physical tournament, like a decathlon. And women are brought to him, maybe ... when he desires them.
I got my first job when I was 9. Worked at a sheet metal factory. In two weeks, I was running the floor. Child labor laws are ruining this country.
[welcoming patrons to an art show] OK, everyone: shut up! And look at me! Welcome to “Visions of Nature.” This room has several paintings in it. Some are big, some are small. People did them and they’re here now. I believe that after this is over, they’ll be hung in government buildings. Why the government is involved in an art show is beyond me. I also think it’s pointless for a human to paint scenes of nature when they could just go outside and stand in it. Anyway, please do not misinterpret the fact that I am talking right now as genuine interest in art and attempt to discuss it with me further. End of speech.
I am an official member of a task force dedicated to slashing the city budget. Just saying that gave me a semi.
History began on July 4, 1776. Everything that happened before that was a mistake.

I like April and Andy too. Ron is teaching them to use their apathy and “Slackerism” to full effect. They’ve caused me to realize that the real problem isn’t that there are too many slackers in government, but there aren’t enough slackers in positions of power.
