Is this the thread again where we talk about how bad it is for Bird Shirt to wear expensive clothes, but the Michelin-O's designer clothes are cool?

ginandbacon: Did I miss the part when Ann Romney criticized Michelle Obama in any way? I admit to not reading TFA; I just looked at the pretty pictures. But they have always been extremely cordial with each other and very nice. It's one of the few bright spots on this campaign. They've never had a bad word between them...


I think she posted in the comments as Josh Brogan

Troll thread. I'm feeding this one.

The problem isn't that Bird Shirt wears expensive clothes. It's that the expensive clothes remind us that she repeatedly makes comments that show she has contempt for people who aren't as rich as she is. Michelle, OTOH, is like Mrs. Ballou, who has some nice clothes and wears them proudly on appropriate occasions.

Michelle would blend right in at a Methodist ladies sewing circle and pot luck dinner, while Ann would probably make some snide remark about springing for the big bucks for the paper plates and have her driver take her home to have her chef make her a proper meal.

I don't mind admitting that I am impressed by this woman.

I hear you... I'm unable to see why Michelle elicits such hatred from some folks in this country.

Wow... She's smart, articulate and wants our children to eat better and be more active. How outrageous. *rolls eyes*

And on a superficial level, she far more attractive than Romney's Stepford Wife, in my opinion.

stoli n coke: It's easy to see why conservative parents didn't like her. Think about it. They've been brought up on a steady diet of talk radio and TV pundits telling them all the problems in their life are somebody else's fault.

Kids are fat? It couldn't be the parents fault for not encouraging eating right. It must be the fault of the internet or TV commercials for junk cereal and soda.

Kids turned out gay? Liberal Hollywood turned them that way with their anti-family values movies and music.

Kids can't get into college? There was only one spot left, and affirmative action made sure a black kid took it.

Your husband can't get a job? Illegal immigrants stole it.

They didn't have a problem with Nancy's drug education plans or Laura's child literacy plans because the schools were doing the bulk of the work. But Michelle's plan puts personal responsibility on conservative parents' doorsteps, and a lot of them hate that.

Party of personal responsibility, indeed.


Can't argue with any of that...

Conservatives in this country love to play the victim... Which is hilarious in light of Romney's asinine statements about half the country.

And judging by the hubris and hyperbole of the Republican nominees, it's unlikely they'll learn anything should they get shellacked in November.

To say nothing of Bird Shirt, she's certainly nothing special, but you people who have been parroting how beautiful Michelle is for four years now are hilarious.

Here, for example, is one of the hottest black women to have ever existed, Stacey Dash:

And Michelle Obama:

I mean, we get it. You like Obama the president. I don't dislike Obama either. But stop pretending his wife is anything resembling hot, she isn't. She has an oddly shaped face and eyes, big teeth, a bigger ass than her body should have, etcetera. SWOON, SHE'S SO BEYOOTEFUL. 

She wasn't even attractive when she was youthful.

In a campaign where one of the issues is wasteful spending, it's not a good idea for anyone to call out someone for wearing an outfit more than once. Kind of adds to the whole "out of touch" thing.

In a campaign in which there is a huge political divide, it would be good to not completely make up shiat about the opponent's wife and then pile on as if it were true.

Oh, yeah, real high standards. It's so tough to find women hotter than the supermodel that is Michelle. I mean, look at all my posts in the past where I've detailed how I don't date women who are less attractive than people like Heidi Klum, Elle MacPherson, and of course Michelle.
 
2012-09-25 09:44:46 AM  

karnal: You're naive if you don't think it was a calculated step....have Michelle wear the same gown - get a couple of "liberal friendly" newscasters to comment on it....then make flippant remarks how the super mega-rich Ann Romney would not be caught dead wearing the same gown twice.  Thus, advancing their class warfare agenda.


Well that's one theory.

The other theory is that she likes the dress and wanted to wear it again.

So.... applying Occam's razor which sounds more likely;

A) The woman liked the dress and sees no problem wearing it again

B) There is a secret libruhl plot to create an issue so subtle as to be pretty much imperceptible to everyone but the wingnuts

okay see, that's where you went off the deep end. We were trying to be reasonable with you and were actually in agreement with you in your assertion that she is not a supermodel but then you go and make a jackass comment like that and that respect that we may have had with you *poof* right out the window
