Grammys 2013: Michelle Obama is Nominated for a Grammy? Plus Other Surprising Grammy Nominees
Latinos Post Entertainment ^ | February 6. 2013 | Lindsay Lowe

Everyone's buzzing about Frank Ocean, Taylor Swift, and Mumford & Sons, but did you know that Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton are also nominated for Grammys this year.

They're nominated in the often-overlooked Spoken Word category, which honors poetry, audio books, and other forms of audio storytelling. Michelle Obama, along with producers Scott Crewell and Dan Zitt, are nominated for the audio recording of her first audio book, American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America.

"With one nomination," points out the Huffington Post's Julie Miller, "the First Lady has already out-Grammy-ied Justin Bieber and One Direction," who did not receive any nominations this year, much to the dismay of their fans...

Propaganda 101.

If there is a difference between this, Bronco’s Nobel and Korea’s Lil’Kim Golf prowess (the 15+ holes in one thing) I’d like someone to explain what it is.

This is really no different than Hollywood telling people Paris Hilton was some beautiful sex goddess. All designed to socially program an agenda.

Hell. Even Stalin didn’t try to claim the title of the greatest artist among his many “greatest” titles. The next thing you know, First Comrades Clinton and Obama will win the Olympics.

Just wait: with the proper confidence level in the next year or so, he will record a Hip Hop Album with some non-entity he thinks is an “artist”.

These Libs actually believe this BS that Michelle Obama got this based on talent.

The Grammys and every other venue of public approval are now seen as another place where our Political Idiots and Pretenders can be sold to the public. It’s all designed for the purposes of creating the artificial buzz of “he/she’s
been nominated for/won a Grammy/Oscar/Pulitzer/Nobel Prize”.
We live in an ass-kissing world of incestuous self-dealers.

Barack Obama won a Grammmy in 2006 and again in 2008. No political influence from Hollywood. Nope, nada.

If there WAS Socialist influence in Hollywood, we certainly would’ve heard of it before now.

Next up: Michelle Obama will win the Nobel Prize in Literature for her High School paper “Why Whitey Keeps Us Down”. The prize will be topic #1 on “Morning Joe, where Joe Scarborough will opine on how “It’s about damn time” and Mika Brzezinski will offer thougthful frowns and grunts of approval.

This smacks of a Stalinist regime where Dear Leader is head of a Cult of Personality.

It also gives insight into the minds of both the entertainment industry and the Obama’s.

The Grammy’s are supposed to be for exceptional achievement, which Michelle certainly is not worthy of, but is delighted to go to the awards and act like a pompous big shot.

This pretty much discredits the Grammy Awards as dubious, BS honor

Pretty much like the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Being a Nobel Laureate for Peace used to be one of the premier honors that this world could bestow in the eyes of the world.

Now, no one could care less because it was abused and discredited.

The value of a profession to society is inversely proportional to the awards it gives itself.

Just more proof that our government is a a motion picture- sifi movie.. and we are the audience.

There is no line that distinguishes between DC and Hollywood.

Socialist influence in Hollywood? My GOD MAN!!!

There is no socialism in Hollywood. California, the most conservative of the 57 states, would never allow it. With Jerry “Jessie Helms” Brown at the helm, the National Guard would be in there in 5 seconds marching people off to camps...

And if Halestorm is denied a Grammy, the credibility will be further eroded...if that’s even possible.

THAT GIRL has got some serious pipes.

And you thought you've had enough: Newtown Students To Perform At Grammys.

I also read that Hussein is being asked to award the Medal of Freedom to the Sandy Hook victims.

Thanks for the compliment. I appreciate it.
I wanted to keep it pithy or I would have added in the
last sentence “self-promoters” to ‘self-dealers’.
