The Obamas just can't control anything.

Seriously.  I was willing to overlook the fact that the White House was a little up in arms over a PETA advert that had an image of Michelle Obama alongside Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks, and Carrie Underwood that read "Fur Free and Fabulous."  After all, the president of PETA said that they didn't bother to ask for permission for the ad since they knew the White House would tell them to fuck off, and what does PETA care?

But, when only twenty-four hours later, I see yet another story of someone using a picture of an Obama - this time, Big O himself - without the White House's permission, someone's got to stop and say what the fuck, and it might as well be me.

What.  The.  Fuck. 

I know the Obamas can't control what other people do, but this is just fucking ridiculous.  They can't even control their own images being used in advertising campaigns, and, when it happens, according to the NYT piece, they can't "comment on whether the matter had been resolved," which - at least in my stupid moron brain - means they haven't been able to do jack shit about it.

Of course, as far as I'm concerned, PETA is essentially a terrorist organization, and it's not like I expect the Obama administration to be able to do anything about terrorism ...
