In his book God Knows, Joseph Heller perfectly described the manipulative, power hungry bored first lady. Bathsheba, in his telling, is a constant meddler, jockeying for power and, desperate to have her son, Solomon, made David's successor to the throne. She spends her free time in creative activities like inventing pantaloons because she is way too narcissistic to play second fiddle even to the king.
We should be so lucky.
The last two Democrat First Ladies cost us a bundle in their effort to be co-Presidents. Hillary ("two for the price of one"), with hair styles changing weekly, mucked about for ages with a large, costly cadre of her own staff in the West Wing ~snip~
Michelle Obama has followed suit telling us what to eat, that community service work is good and income generating occupations bad, and how to exercise. At the same time she spends millions of our tax dollars touring the world with her family and friends wearing costumes, generally of the bizarre sort beloved by the not very bright trendy fashionistas who write Style Section copy, and doing not one visible thing that isn't chosen and fashioned for her own benefit. ~snip~
Isn't it enough that whoever holds the office of President holds a very difficult position, which requires a supportive spouse? Isn't it enough that the duties of officialdom and respect for the office are rather demanding tasks? It's not easy to prepare for all these occasions-- ~snip~ And, for example, when planning a State Dinner for the South Koreans, don't serve Japanese food, never hug the Queen of England, wear hose on state visits and don't cross your legs when sitting in public -- especially when wearing short skirts and you are on the platform.

I am definitely in favor of every candidate’s spouse foreswearing championing a cause while his or her spouse is President or Vice President and agreeing to having no more than a minimal staff, travel and expense allowance. I want them to emulate Denis Thatcher and just leave all that stuff for “The Boss” we elected and enjoy for the brief time they are there the many perks of life in the White House.
During my hippie pot smoking days in the early 70s he and Kurt Vonnegut were my favorites.
I second the motion. It seems that Dem 1st ladies measure their significance by how big a staff they can command and how much taxpayer’s money they can splurge on their pet causes.
Such “Worst Ladies” are the ultimate Grifters.
I was wondering if I was the only one who noticed that the Wookie has to be the center of attention.
She has no real job so she creates one for herself, Food Judge.
Too bad she doesn’t practice what she preach’s.
These two appear to do whatever it takes to be away from each other. Not much love between them I am thinking.They are users, using each other.
For God's sake, who do these people think they're kidding with all their mucking around in everyone’s personal lives? Only dolts and hardcore dopers don't know that she and her whole crowd couldn't care less what happens to average folks and wants to have most of them walking in ox crap out in the fields sunup to sundown where the fascist nobility won't have to see them.
You know, if this was still America we'd have been hanging Congress Critters from lamp posts when they shoved that “health care” burrito full of dung down our throats. Barry and his cow bell wearing babe would have been living on military bases since then afraid to make a public appearance.
Forgive me, I rant.
I shall try to restrain myself in the future but please help by not mentioning that retarded low country Bertha Butt that's telling average folks how to live while she spends stolen money like it's water.
None of the aforementioned three cost the taxpayers tens of millions of dollars with their constant travel junkets and insatiable need for media face time. They were content to let the causes be bigger than them, not tools to raise their profiles.
Yep, these are the new role models for today’s young impressionable women and new feminism. It’s all the Oprah rage nonsense, funded by hubby’s money.

Oh, and lest we forget the f@gs too love to discuss these women and do the ultimate ho b!tch slap with other narcissist women on that.
All Washington was in turmoil over debt default with blue ribbon commissions trying to find a $trillion on cuts. In the middle of this Shelly flounces out with a genius plan to spend half a billion on establishing healthy food stores for poor people. And NOBODY made fun of her.
Whew! How do you REALLY feel? :)
Rosalynn Carter...member of the Carter administration and a skillful speaker, Mrs. Carter attended Cabinet meetings and major briefings, frequently represented the chief executive at ceremonial occasions, and served as the Presidents personal emissary to Latin American countries.
As First Lady, she focused national attention on the performing arts and took a strong interest in programs to aid mental health, strengthen communities and assist the elderly. From 1977-78, she served as the honorary chairperson of the Presidents Commission on Mental Health, which resulted in passage of the Mental Health Systems Act of 1980.
