Pretty boring, for a structure that will probably serve as America's main hotbed of treason

Jon Gabriel looks at the aesthetics of Obama's future presidential library.
A discarded Chinese take-out box. The backside of a Star Wars sand crawler. The Washington Monument with the interesting bits lopped off. That’s what sprung to mind when confronted with the initial design of the Obama Presidential Center.
BTW, Barry just collared the JFK Profile in Courage Award, which is almost as impressive as my second grade perfect attendance certificate.

I think it would be more appropriate if he were to build the Barry H Obama Presidential Golf Course.

A nine hole, par three would fit his legacy.

Looks a bit like a Sth American pyramid.

Maybe the idea is to bury the actual presidential records so only future archaeologists will get access to them. The O'blah-blah Time Capsule.

Yet another nausea-inducing place I will never bother to visit.

I'm mostly surprised it doesn't have a minaret.

Or at least a statue of Stalin.

If it was a miniature course. Everybody gets a medal before playing.

Don't forget Mao.

There will be a statue of Obama, of course.

Veeshir said...

That's hilarious Deborah.
It'll probably be in front of a mirror.

He should call it Cithaeron, that's the mountain where Echo pined for Narcissus.

Yeah, I looked it up on wikipedia.
