Political Power

I am unashamedly reposting a photograph which Vivian (Disciplined Feminist) posted a few months ago.

(You should click picture to view a larger image, its much more powerful)

She found it on the official White House photographic collection web site, and it's still there. The other pictures also include some excellently composed images and its nice to see the current White House residents employing good photographers and publishing their work.

The more I have looked at this picture, the more there is to see. What's with the belt buckle at the back of the skirt? Quite difficult to do up or undo without help, I would have thought.

The image of schoolgirl awaiting interview with headmaster is overwheleming.

There again, others might see a teacher patiently watching an offending student writing lines or completing some other assignment.

Whatever way you view it, this picture conveys a highly charged atmosphere of authority, just what we should expect from inside a political powerhouse such as the White House.

Political power, after all, is all about controlling, and being controlled by, people.


  1. Hi there,

    Following the roaring success of the spanking universe, and after blogger deleted the original, I am happy to announce that the Spanking Universe is back. I purchased a website last week and you can see the new page here:

    Your site was added on its inception and I would like to request that you update your old link to the Universe to the new link, which is:

    The exact link above will direct everyone to the updates page. Let the HITS begin, we are back, bigger than ever!!

    Nearly 50% of sites have already linked back and as I did before, should sites choose not to link back in I will create a separate list for them. It is only fair to sites that link back in to separate them from sites that don't. Next weekend I will be separating the list and those sites that don't link back will be on the sidebar as a regular text link.

    Thanks in advance for your cooperation in updating your links. You won't be troubled any more by me trying to promote the site for the benefit of the community.

    Richard Windsor.

  3. President Obama saying to his wife. "Michele, it is time for you to get your first spanking in the white House. So please bend over my Oval Office desk, whereupon I will raise her dress waist high, pull down your panties, and spank that bare bottom of yours bright red."

  4. The President is saying to his wife Michele. "Michele, this afternoon Sarah Palin, will be bent over this Oval Desk of mine, and receive 'six of the best or more strokes of the cane on her bare bottom. Just like I gave you when we moved into the White House.
