Arianna Huffington Gives Michelle Obama “A Ten”
cbsnews.com ^ | 4/3/09 | Michelle Levi

Posted on 04/05/2009 4:45:38 PM PDT by melt

Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, told Bob Schieffer on CBSNews.com’s “Washington Unplugged” that she thinks highly of First Lady Michelle Obama’s decisions to move her mother to the White House, create a vegetable garden and develop an “approachable” personal style.

“This is fantastic, an unqualified yes, there is nothing to complain about,” Huffington said.

“Even if you don’t terribly like that particular outfit,” she said of Mrs. Obama’s fashion sense, “you know it is what she loves and what she looks good in.”

As for the first lady’s protocol-breeching personal contact with the Queen in London, Huffington had this to say: “A little more touching among the royal family is not a bad thing.” Schieffer agreed.

Michelle could dress in a garbage bag and the MSM would gush over how glamorous she is.

Ha Ha Ha, I remember an episode on
Everybody Loves Raymond when Amy and Robert
break up for the 50th time, and Amy said
she felt like a spatula, because she could
flip a man from straight to gay like a burger.

I won't go that far, but I do say that we'd have never heard of the Gabor sister knock-off if she were not the beard for a gay man.

Ten on a scale of one to a hundred is higher than I’d give her, but whatever . . . .

I can answer that one, and your screen name is a giant clue. Just a hint of what could happen if you should find yourself an anti-american, and a Constitution basher and a moral relativist, and an abortion proponent in a day when treason reemerges from the cellar and resumes its place in the tool shed of liberty loving people.

Arianna would have said the same about Eva Braun, the wife of Obama's closest historical match. It's Michelle's proximity to power that interests Arianna, not the actual appearance of Former US Senator Obama's wife. Eva and Michelle had the same taste in men; the difference is that a sober person could consider Eva cute:

Zsa Zsa couldn’t even tell she was marrying a fag. Although I doubt she cared. She just wanted his money.

If I had received a “10” in school up to my MBA, that would have been considered an ugly failure.

So yes. He is a 10 and less.

I am sorry Bo, you are a 100. Don’t let anybody say you are a retarded 10.

Ari was once a phony conservative, and now a fake lib.

Schieffer was never an anchor nor journalist nor reporter, just a newsreading drone for the ‘Rats.

Is this supposed to be a meeting of minds?

Perhaps AH has a touch of LESBO in her and she is attracted to a strong (i.e. muscular) woman.

Mara Liasson from FNC was gushing also this afternoon: about what a sensation Mabelle is!!! and how she has taken Europe by storm with her fashion statements.
Does anyone have that cat hurling video? I really need to see it right now.
