Michelle Obama is only imitating her husband, who has interrupted virtually every major televised sporting event with his appearances in order to make himself as well-known to Americans as humanly possible.

INTERRUPTED VIRTUALLY every major sporting event. All of them! There was that NCAA Tournament play in game he went to, and ummm that one time he entered The Masters Tournament. Yeah.

Somebody should pull that stick out of Wm. Bigelow's ass and whack him in the head with it.
Acting like, and mingling with real people is certainly offensive to all.

i don't mind his incessant need to interrupt my sporting events, but i'd really prefer it if obama would stop editing himself into the middle of all of my favorite streaming porn videos.

Ahhh...the ladies don't sweat, they glisten tote.

Real women sweat when they work hard. Real women sweat when they play hard. The best way to tell if a gal is worth your time is to see how much effort she puts in.

I don't trust the shrinking violets who are afraid of spoiling their appearance with work or fun. Give it all you got, or go home.

The East Room of the White House was also where Andrew Jackson threw an inaugural ball that made most Frat parties look like a luncheon at the Vicars.

Sarah Palin is automatically Second Lady and President Obama has to convert to Mormonism.

It's OK to say you'd like to have a beer with Dubya. But it's a sin for Obama to appear like one of us.

Sounds like Breitbart is just upset that the Obamas have effectively thwarted their campaign to portray the couple as different, foreign, other, unclassed, and ignorant and disrespectful of "our ways."

Smells like victory to me.

I don't watch a lot of TV, but when I do, the remote is always VERY close at hand. As soon as Dumbama or Moocherella's ugly faces appear, I change channels. Just the sight or sound of them makes me want to puke.


Protip: when I'm trolling the local rag, I always say "X makes me want to PUKE!" For some reason, wanting to puke is a strong right-wing rebuke. It's very common among these people. Personally, something like shots of Jack on a empty stomach with a hangover make me want to puke more than seeing Obama... err Dumbama on TV.

Michelle Obama may be on the verge of substantial national fame and influence. Hillary Clinton really took off as political celebrity when her husband the President was caught schtupping the help. All the networks wanted to interview her. Somehow she became plausible as a US Senator despite her former lack of experience in high political office.

So if and when the allegations of Barrack's homosexuality blossom into a full blown scandal, we'll be seeing a lot of her on the Sunday political news shows.


Obama is gay too. That's how much he sucks.

How many gals are so vain you make sure your lip stick matches your tee shirt for the camera. Also imagine the hours and money it must take to assure that your lip stick is c0-ordinated at all times. She sure is in a category all her own. I wonder if she pays for all this or gets it free because she's FLOTUS.


I'm curious if this woman is actually shocked that another woman makes an effort to coordinate her look or if she's just nitpicking. Also, I like the effort to stick a 0 in anything related to 0bama. I wonder if he b0ught s0me t0mat0es f0r his salad.

Unfortunately for Malia, she's entering her awkward teens which will be the time for the right wingosphere to continually bring up how ugly she is.

That's got to be great for a teenage girl having 30% of the country talking aloud about how hideous you look because they hate your old man.

Speaking as a conservative, normally I have absolutely no interest one way or the other in Michelle Obama. Any coverage of her is too much, unless she's encouraging literacy or some such other worthy apolitical cause. Exercise is a fine cause, and if you don't sweat, you're not exercising.

/Unless you're Alexander Putin, and you can slay three bears blindfolded with one hand while defeating Nazis to recover the Lost Ark with the other. And not sweat.

Dear Jeanie -
You sound like a fat, racist, jealous harpie. Caring about one's appearance is a good thing. Tshirts and lipstick aren't expensive and before she was FLOTUS Michelle made more money than your tacky cracker ass could imagine having.
PS You will never be on TeeVee.

Well, it is funny when you think of it like that. But it really has become more metaphorical. It implies relatable, down to earth, someone you can easily understand, etc. etc. I don't think it implies "commoner" or "loud drunk douchebag at the local dive who's fun but kind of an asshole".

And that's exactly what's at play here in this hit piece. If Breitbart can't disrupt the "good people who you can relate to" thing the Obamas have going, they attack the couple for being undignified and classless.

It's the same no-win, hypocritical standards trap. And the Obamas will continue to maneuver around it.

This why I love USAToday's new comment setup that links directly to facebook so you can read about people you'd never meet in real life. My personal favorite is this guy that speaks of demons in his computers and says "BROOD OF VIPERS" when he's frustrated. I've started saying it.

we could turn it into a reality show survivor style dance contest where participants have to dance each week while en route to the sun. losers are ejected into deep space and the winner gets to be emperor of the sun. plus it's a virtuous cycle, because we can identify candidates for the next season by keeping track of who actively votes for their favorite dancers.

I keep saying, that Dumbama and Moocherella should leave a few days before the Jan 20, 2013 inauguration so the W.H. can be thoroughly fumigated and disinfected. God only knows what they have brought into the W.H.

I don't know about Barbara Bush. Hillary Clinton plunged into politics with the 90s health care debate and other policy initiatives, so she was fair game as First Lady. Ann Romney is a little more gray since Romney was using her as a political shield and now she's dipping her toe into punditry.

Laura Bush stuck to education and literacy and Michelle Obama is sticking to general healthy living so they should be off-limits from personal attacks. TFA's author is a douche.
