The Boob Belt is back!
More manly than her husband
No wait, she has a JLo Butt.

My Caption: Only 863 more days to put up with this crap.
She throws more manly than the Metrosexual.
She will need a vacation soon after this.
I've seen a Matador in Barcelona cry
I've seen old Singapore, the bridge on River Kwai
I've seen the Mardi Gras, and been in one horse town
Since I saw you with him, I move, I move around
I move around
I move around
Excuse me folks, but the Colt’sformer coach is Tony DUNGY, not tongy.
I don’t think that is a boob belt. I think that is just an empire waist that gives the impression of a boob belt, without the actual discomfort. I also object to the ruffles and the puffy sleeves, which make her famous arms look like stuffed sausages.
MO: "Whoops! That was a wet one..."
From Michelle Malkin:
“Behind every seemingly good deed in the Obama White House, theres a deep-pocketed, left-wing special interest. Take First Lady Michelle Obamas crusade against childhood obesity. Who really benefits from the ostensible push for improved nutrition in the schools? Think purple as in the purple-shirted army of the Service Employees International Union. Big Labor bigwigs dont care about slimming your kids waistlines. They care about beefing up their membership rolls and fattening their coffers.
Mrs. Obama earned a State of the Union Address shout-out from her hubby for taking on the weighty public policy issue of students physical fitness. The East Wing is now in full campaign mode leaning on the nations mayors, traveling with the Surgeon General, and meeting with Congress and cabinet members to reauthorize the Lyndon Johnson-era Child Nutrition Act, which provides government-subsidized meals to more than 30 million children. Its part of the Obama administrations self-proclaimed cradle-to-career agenda for Americas youth.
For decades, this Great Society relic has been criticized by school administrators for outgrowing its initial conception. The program was originally created to use up post-World War II food surpluses. In the late 1970s, New York principal Lewis Lyman skewered it as a federal boondoggle in a seminal essay for the education journal, Phi Delta Kappan. But Democrats demagogued the GOPs responsible attempts at financial reform during the Clinton years as starving the children. While spending on youth nutrition and wellness have ballooned, so have the kids. Nearly one-third of U.S. children are now overweight or obese. The feds spend $15 billion a year on nutrition in schools; the White House wants at least a $1 billion increase this coming fiscal year.
The well-intended program to feed poor kids has morphed into an untouchable universal entitlement with a powerful school lunch lobbying coalition of Department of Agriculture bureaucrats, food-service industry executives, and union bosses. Enter the SEIU. Headed up by the White Houses most frequent visitor, Andy Stern, the powerful labor organization representing government and private service employees has an insatiable appetite for power and growth. Working alongside the First Lady, the SEIU unveiled a major ad campaign this week demanding reauthorizing and funding increases in the Child Nutrition Act.
Whats in it for Big Labor? SEIU Executive Vice President Mitch Ackerman explains: A more robust expansion of school lunch, breakfast, summer feeding, child care and WIC [the federal Women, Infants, and Children nutrition program] is critical to reducing hunger, ending childhood obesity, and providing fair wages and healthcare for front line food service workers (emphasis added). There are 400,000 workers who prepare and serve lunch to American schoolchildren. SEIU represents tens of thousands of those workers and is trying to unionize many more. More robust expansion of the federal school lunch law means a mandate for higher wages, increased benefits, and government-guaranteed health insurance coverage (the more luxurious the better now that SEIU has negotiated its Cadillac Tax exemption from the Democrats health care takeover bill).
The SEIUs front group, Campaign for Quality Services, is clamoring for the right to sick days and training for school food-services workers. Never ones to let a crisis go unexploited, SEIU sent its members to lobby in front of Chicago public schools last year and scare parents into supporting their labor agenda. They accused the school system of putting our kids at risk during flu season by resisting the SEIUs sick day coverage demands. Without sick days, I cant take a day off, so I have to bring germs to school, an SEIU janitor lamented.
Along the same lines, they are casting food-services workers as indispensable saviors. The union has rallied behind p.r. efforts casting them as superheroes serving justice, and serving lunch. Opposing the union means opposing childrens health. SEIU propaganda features New Jersey school cafeteria workers like Leslie Williams of Orange, N.J. lamenting: I love my work, but its getting harder to prepare nutritious meals on the low budget were working with It breaks my heart to see a child whos hungry. As I see it, part of my job is to make sure the kids are well-fed.
Actually, thats the primary job of parents. Mom? Dad? Remember them? But the more responsibility we demand of parents, the less power and influence SEIU bosses are able to grab. Unionized school dietician and nutrition jobs are booming. And in addition to school breakfast and lunch, the SEIU is now pushing subsidized dinner plans and summer food service to create a stronger nutrition safety net. Translation: Perpetual employment for big government and its public employee union au pairs.
Cede the children, feed the state.”

Is that a maternity dress she is wearing with a built-in boob belt? What a caboose she has!
