across two continents this summer
cut the fat.
I have advice for her: STFU. Every time I turned around this summer, there was Moo-chelle, shoving ice cream in her mouth again on yet another vacation. Yet she finger-wags her fat self at the rest of us, telling people that they are too stupid to make their own choices about food, so the government will do it for them. Carrots should be the "default side dish" on the kids' menu.
This is the woman who has done more for the Spanx industry than any current celebrity, even Oprah. Honey, it doesn't count if it's just all held in with spandex. Look to your own house, woman. Or for that matter, look in the rear-view mirror once in awhile.

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
Update. I was wondering, so at her speech yesterday, who was Moo-chell trying to sound most like? Marilyn Monroe? Jackie O? What happened to the Angry Black Woman (TM)? At least she seemed more authentic than this woman with the soft, sweet, sweet voice. Bleh.
Oh, and P.S. The First Whiner, Lady Michelle, hates her job, thinks it's "hell." Doesn't that just figure? And these remarks came long before she was criticized for her Summer Vacation Extravapalooza. What a maroon this woman is. "The White House declined to comment." hahahahahahaha--I'm waiting to hear what Bob Gibbs has to say when they ask him. You just can't make this stuff up.
Somebody tell me where I would be wrong if I said that THIS attitude is what comes from a person being the "beneficiary" of affirmative action all their lives. Michelle Robinson Obama evidently thought she deserved all that "stuff" that was handed to her all her life--the seat at Princeton, the seat at Harvard Law, the $300,000 a year job on the hospital board, and now the job of First Lady of the United States. This woman has to be one of the worst examples of failed opportunity I've ever come across--seriously. The good that Michelle Obama could do with her position--and instead what she chooses to do with it--it's almost obscene.
In an alternate universe, Michelle Obama could have continued to dress like an adult professional instead of like some fat and forty-ish fashion diva. Here she is before she became First Lady. She looks wonderful here! What a waste of time spent over the past couple of years, trying to be something she clearly is not. How refreshing it would have been if she had been content to look like herself as she is here, roll up her sleeves, and get to work for the country of which she was "finally proud." Who knows, she might even have found that she liked the job.

Update on the update. First the White House "declined comment." Now the White House is denying the report. It came from a biography that was written by French journalists "in cooperation with Ms. Bruni," who is of course the French First Lady, Carla Bruni. So I guess the White House was calling Carla Bruni a liar. Then later in the day, a spokesperson for the French embassy in Washington said that Bruni "distances herself completely from the content of the book." And, "The words attributed to the First Lady of the United States were never said."
OK, so I guess MicHELLe loves being FLOTUS, probably kinda the same way she always loved her country. And probably the same way that we love her in the job as well.
Update redux. The latest news is that the author of the book on Carla Bruni-Sarkosy stands by his account of MicHELLe's complaints about her life in the White House. However, he says the exchange was made in a "jokey" tone. I don't really care whether she was joking or serious. Michelle Obama is simply not the kind of person I could ever like, and I think she's doing a lousy job in an important position. Where she got the idea that she is some sort of fashion diva is simply beyond me. She could have squashed that kind of coverage of herself, but instead she's played it to the hilt. A pure waste, IMO.
