Via John Avlon who uses the neologism to describe the collection of scandals enveloping Barack Obama: scandalabra.
The latest non-Watergate to be labelled its second coming is actually a combination of three separate scandals afflicting the Barack Obama administration.
The collective weight of this scandalabra threatens to derail the president's ambitious legislative agenda, dragging him to premature lame duck status. But it doesn't represent outright criminality emanating from the Oval Office or promise to provoke a constitutional crisis, however fervently Obama's critics might wish it.
Remember the days when comedians struggled to find ways to mock President Obama? Well fortunately we're past that now and there are plenty of hilarious photoshops of Obama with his shotgun.
Actually it's pretty clear what likely happened: the spellers began their spelling from stage-left, their left-hand sides based on the way they were all facing. The far-left guy probably put up an "O", and President Obama followed with an "H". The spelling comes out backwards for the camera, but is correct from the perspective of the participants.
But yeah, it's pretty funny!
(And no, the image wasn't simply reversed... check out the letters on the red shirt behind the quartet.)
I wonder if this toilet stall gets used for activities other than it's intended purpose?

Anthony Herrera has a daughter who really loves Star Wars. So, naturally, before the family went on a big hike through Sequoia National Park, with its giant redwoods and thick green undergrowth, he told her that they were going to visit the place where Ewoks live. (Not far off of course, the Endor scenes of Return of the Jedi were filmed in a redwood forest, but not SNP, I checked.) Naturally, after a day's hike Herrera found himself explaining that Ewoks are very shy and stealthy, and it would have been very, very lucky indeed if they'd actually spotted any.
It was only after going through snapshots from the family outing that the Herreras discovered that they might not have seen any Ewok's, but the Ewoks definitely saw them.
I wish I had the skill for this... my daughter would love it too.
