What the hell, why not

The most accomplished man in human history.

Barack Obama had something to celebrate today because the Netflix documentary he and wife Michelle produced, “American Factory,” was predictably nominated for an Oscar for best documentary.

“Glad to see American Factory’s Oscar nod for Best Documentary,” Obama tweeted. “It’s the kind of story we don’t see often enough and it’s exactly what Michelle and I hope to achieve with Higher Ground.”

Higher Ground is the name of the Obamas’ production company. Last year they were accused of “deplorable behavior” over a trademark dispute over the name of the company.

Barack Obama has already won two Grammy awards for Best Spoken Word Album, and Michelle Obama was recently nominated in the same category for her memoir, Becoming—and I’ll bet a thousand dollars she’ll win. In fact, if you look at the nominations and winners in that category, you’ll find a lot of Democrat politicians and pundits have a knack for scoring nominations and winning the Grammy in that category, while their conservative counterparts don’t even get nominated. Nominees for Best Spoken Word Album include Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Al Franken, and Jesse Jackson.

All of them won at least once.

Back to the Obamas. Barack Obama was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize within a month or so of taking office and ultimately won the award over several more appropriate choices. His victory was so ill-considered that the Secretary of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, Geir Lundestad, regrets Obama being given the award.

Well, Barky has certainly gotten incredible mileage out of that make-work stint as a “community organizer” back in Chi-town, you gotta give him that much. He’s parlayed it into all these major awards, even into the White House itself. Pretty heady stuff for a guy who never held a real job or did a day’s honest, useful work in his life—all the more so, after parlaying his 400k per annum presidential salary into a multimillion dollar mansion or three to boot. One can only tip one’s cap in respect for such a consummate grifter.

  1. they were accused of “deplorable behavior”

    Considering who referred to whom as ‘a basket of deplorables’ not that long ago, I assure you that Obama’s behavior has never been deplorable.  He doesn’t have an ounce of deplorable in his character.  Pathetic, self-serving, petulant, immature, sure.  But not deplorable.

  2. he didn’t even do his own grifting.

    Barky was groomed by someone, maybe several someones.

    His benefactors seem to be Commies and Shia Jihadists. Given his Mother’s and Step-Father’s affiliations over the years with both ends of the Alliance, I think they found his handlers in Chicago who made sure his grifts were always successful and always untraceable because he was “made” and no one was going to turn snitch on him.

    I mean, do you really think the Clintoon Machine would back off a sniveling runt like Barky if there weren’t someone powerful running him from afar? Nah, the two, or likely more, machines just cut deals and divvied up the spheres of influence.

    Like an organized crime family.
