Just possibly because she isn't a rock star except to the media.

Sasquatch/Chewbaca's magic is wearing off. Maybe she could draw a crowd in Spain.

The crowd went wild when Michelle Obama swept into a high-school gymnasium in Las Vegas yesterday morning, with little Harry Reid trailing in her wake and a local Mariachi band, in full dress uniform, entertaining the crowd. But behind the flag waving and anthem-singing, and the sunny optimism of a typical American election rally, there was a palpable sense of unease.

Two years ago, at the height of Obamania, the First Lady was a sort of rock-star; with a following wind, she could fill an outdoor stadium. Today, her stock has fallen. A few hundred people did turn out to hear her speech, but there were swathes of seats left empty at the back, and plenty of standing room around the stage. Ticker tape was conspicuous by its absence.

How many articles and how many magazine covers tried to convince the public that she is Jackie Onassis?

If you needed any proof, they proved over and over that the press will say and print whatever they are told to say and print.

Obama’s First Beast is hardly a rock star. An oddity attraction for the traveling presidential circus, perhaps, but not a rock star.

The real title should be “State Media Fails to Engineer Fat Bitch’s Rock Star Status.”

The Senator currently sits between two and four points in the Nevada polls behind Sharron Angle, a former schoolteacher with no national political experience who comes from the extreme right wing of the Republican movement. In a pattern being repeated across America, his centrist brand is being threatened by an unconventional candidate whose quirky – and some say bonkers – right-wingery has been roundly endorsed by Sarah Palin and the Tea Party movement.

British left wing slant on the election. Pro poor Harry who they seem to think will win by a few thousand votes.

I know the “fabulously toned arms” don’t pull in the crowds like they used to.

Maybe the folks in India will be excited to see MooseChelle?

That is probably because freak shows are no longer in vogue. Carnivals featured them in the 1040s through 1950’s but this is the 21st century. mooch-elle is an oddity but are no longer intrigued.

That’s what she gets for buying the hype from the media suck-ups. She should have played it down, like Lovely Laura. Then, two years later, people would have felt endeared toward her, instead of angry and resentful about her obscene indulgence in designer clothes and expensive vacations. I almost feel sorry for her. Almost.

Who on EARTH would think for a second that a resentful affirmative action baby with average looks and no achievements would have “rock-star status”?

The eurotrash fascination with the Obamas is very difficult to understand.

My Bourbon was proud to participate, anyway, it was freaking funny. Thanks for the laugh.
