Michelle Obama's Instagram picture backfiring spectacularly, as it rightly should. The more accurate content for her sign would have been '#Doh' (or alternately, '#I am the wife of the most powerful man in the world, and the best way I think I can help is hold a piece of paper with a hashtag and look seriously dumb').

On a related note, compare Putin's recent address to the Russian Duma with the usual hopey-changey rhetoric from Obama. And folks still wonder why Putin is held in higher esteem globally. The problem is, Mr Hopey-Changey's target audience are, to quote JimQ from Washingon's Blog: 
...the technologically entranced zombies shuffling along the sidewalks staring blankly at a tiny screen, tapping away on an itsy bitsy keypad as if whatever they are conveying is of vital importance to the future of mankind. # Give me a break.
