I know I should like Michelle Obama. But . . . I just dont.
I cant! Because, every time I try, Im snake-charmed back by the pearlised nail varnish and Mars Attacks! hair of the one, the only, the ultimate power cheerleader: Cindy McCain.
It all came to a head the other week when the putative First Fembot bowled through London on her way back to America from Vietnam. (Clearly, heiresses dont worry about their carbon footprint just as long as its a diamond-studded, snake-skin-heeled stiletto mega-stomp.)
With an Air Force One blow-dry and coral-pink lipstick, the former junior rodeo queen was clearly on a charm offensive. Oh garsh, she fluttered when asked about the 71-year-old pepaw far from being over the hill, he actually wore her out, and if campaigning ever got too arduous, she sweetly contented herself with the fact that that she had a ringside seat on American history. The general impression was that Mrs McCain, in the style of Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan, doesnt really want to be First Lady at all, and is, instead, rather looking forward to getting back to her diamonds and the delights of the Dallas Crystal Charity Ball once her husband has got this highfalutin political jiggery-pokery out of his system.
John McCain embarrassed by aide's terror gaffe The more John McCain is right on Iraq, the more he loses How much more reassuring than Michelle Obama, who comes from the Ive got a leather skirt, Ive got a leather Birkin bag, Ive got a PhD in whupass school of political wifery. Weve only just got rid of Chony and Billary, for pitys sake, and here we are again with yet another twinkly-eyed charisma merchant whose gobby wife can barely stop herself from grabbing the microphone.

"Mike" Obama hopes to be President someday. She's the Black Hillary, without the charm & pantsuit...
That’s my thought about both of them. They’re Bubba and Hillary without the messed-up marriage. Oh, yeah, and Bubba, damn him, actually brought more experience to the table than Barry does.
I once saw the contest a few months ago summed up this way.
One candidate is a laywer, whose wife is a bitch, and a lawyer.
The other candidate is lawyer, and a bitch, whose husband is a lawyer.
The third is a war hero, whose wife owns a beer distributorship.
I see this article repeats the 1992 “McCain Unprintable Insult” rumor, yet again. Of all things that could possibly be relevant, an off-hand remark from 16 years ago that almost certainly never occured is on this idiot’s top ten of things to report.
Try as I might, I could not divine this author’s point. I think she was just filling space to meet a contractual obligation, because I could not make sense of the thing.
But one thing that I do know is that Michelle Obama makes me long for the good ol’ days of Hillary.
Even with all the Affirmative Action “education” and unearned taxpayer’s money in her back account — she still doesn’t amount to a blackhead on a real lady’s ass.
Did somebody mention beer...? : )
Ummm...what the heck was that rant about? Oh nevermind...I don’t really care.
There wasn't one. It was just mindless drivel.
Hillary has charm??
“I know I should like Michelle Obama.”
Why “should” you, Camilla?
Is it because you are a self-hating white liberal, normally intimidated by MObama’s typically black, in-your-face, pereptual-chip-on-shoulder stance.
At least the author didn’t mention the Cindy’s drug habit and the pain meds she stole from the charity boxes.
Good grief, what a raving bitch! I mean the author!
I can't say I'm impressed with this writer:
Last paragraph excerpt from link:
Nor could you make up this report in the New York Review of Books: In 1992, after Cindy McCain teased her husband about his thinning hair, McCain snapped at her, in front of the reporters and two staffers: At least I dont plaster on the make-up like a trollop, you c***. Now thats what I call showbusiness. For ugly people.
Shane Watson is away
I'm actually surprised the author doesn't like Michele.
BTW, take a look at the grammar:
“For ugly people”. Not even a complete thought. In the old days we called this a fragment. Also "showbusiness" is incorrectly written. It should be show business or show-business. The word "make-up" is correctly written makeup. Using a spell checker would stop these spelling errors. In the old days we didn't highlight foul language either. What passes for journalism today is atrocious. I'm not a journalist and even I NOTICE these grammatical errors.
MObamas typically black, in-your-face, pereptual-chip-on-shoulder stance.
Naw, Michelle is just as tiresome as the Hildabeast. The problem is her “worldview” doesn’t get much beyond Trinity UCC where she is a Queen Bee.
The only difference between the two is Michelle doesn’t have any problem wearing a skirt and makeup, but otherwise, neither of them would hesitate cutting my throat in a New York minute.
Wow. It takes a lot of practice and anger to develop a frown and brow furrows as fearsome as Michelle’s, esp. at her young age. She’s scary, even if the “Whitey tape” never comes to light.
She really resents Cindy McCain’s looks, that’s what it’s about!
I couldn’t find a picture of the author, but if she looks anything like this charactature, no wonder she’s so bitter:
You can tell the baseline character of a person by the shape of their wrinkles. Happy people get little laugh lines at the corners of their mouth. Angry, bitter people get furrows and trenches.
What an incredibly stupid article. This author is the most shallow person I’ve ever read anything by before. She somehow manages to like Cindy McCain, dislike Michelle Obama and dislike Hillary Clinton all for the WRONG reasons. No Michelle Obama is NOT “inspiring,” and why should anyone dislike her because she has a leather purse? Why would anyone like Cindy McCain because she has big hair and is rich? Is this satire?
Typical bitter white person?
I shouldn’t despise Michelle Obama, but I do.
Whatever kind of “profile” this was meant to be, the author drew much more upon her personal prejudices than on the facts of the instances raised.
With the faintest of praise, Michelle is first dismissed as being just a little too brazen (or maybe just “uppity”), while the class envy of the British proletarian kicks in when discussing Cindy McCain. Cindy has too much money, she has too much good looks, she just has too much of everything, and damn it, she doesn’t DESERVE any of it!
A projectile spew. Don’t hold back, tell us how you REALLY feel, Camilla.
Wonder if she got a bump in her SAT to admit her to Princeton?
good ol days of Hillary.
There NEVER WERE any of those days with hillllereeee.
I laugh at how the media tries to make Michelle Obama out to be such a beautiful woman.
Pastor James David Manning of Youtube.com fame says she looks like King Kong’s baby sister. He has to be one of the most entertaining people to come out of this election cycle.
I do not understand how come fellow white people seem to not be able to grasp the concept.
I suppose it is partially because I did not grow up in the lily white suburbs of Boston.
Any criticism of Ms. Obama is certainly going to result in a backlash that cannot be reasonably dealt with.
It is best to ignore Barak’s Ho and certainly do not ever be caught calling that girl a Bitch!
Not unless you want some trouble.
Who would have thunk it would be made?
This is an awesome video.
Thanks for sharing.
Is that the Harlem Church that absolutely can see right through Obama?
Camilla Long's menopausal mood swings, just like her every column.
Please note that it is the "White House", i.e. 2 words, not Whitehouse (i.e. 1 word). "Whitehouse", the way you used it, is someone's last name. Please remember to use the correct format.
Oh my; why did I have to look at that before going to bed tonight?
It’s a shame that YouTube video has only had a little over 8,000 viewings.
Look,its true that Michele is an angry,in your face, confrontational black woman.
But lets be honest.Do you know any who are NOT?
And don’t mention Condi because I can guarantee you that anyone getting on her wrong side is going to get the Evil Sister treatment to the fullest.
Not defending Michele but just keeping it real.
Oh thank goodness. I couldn't figure out most of this gibberish and thought I was experiencing Sundowners disease!
Did McCain really call his wife a c**t in front of reporters? Because she teased him about being bald?
He says “At least I dont plaster on the make-up like a trollop, you c***.”?
I’m starting to worry about his temper and “the button”.
Man, I was just starting to ease up on McCain.
Why do I doubt that happened? Because McCaine is still married and able to walk
"Oh no you di in't!"
I'm sorry, that's just what comes into my mind whenever I see that pic. it's involuntary, so I guess that makes me a racist.
That he is. I watch all of his rants, er, sermons or teachings or whatever. Tnx for the link...
