“feminist achievement”

By riding on the coat-tails of her husband?

I liked Michelle the first time I saw her....

...when she was a linebacker for the Giants

OMG, triple SPEW!!!!! Givhan is black, dontchaknow, and must not have seen the latest pix of Michelle’s backside in her “just walking the dog like any middle class mom” shorts. If Laura Bush or even Barb would have looked like that, Ms. Givhan would have gone nuts - more than she is already...A writer for the Compost - bleah....

“A reader who’s not black or female can sympathize with the feeling that black women are undervalued or mischaracterized in pop culture.”

Undervalued? What does that even mean? Do I owe her something because she’s a black woman?

Yup, I can hang with the “disbelief” part. I can’t believe she’s successor to Laura Bush.

There can’t possibly be a newspaper reader in the US that finds this fluff crap for anything other than what it is...BS. Right?

and an ability to dress herself without the aid of an entourage.

...which, judging by her appearance at most every public function, she needs.

The media might as well be telling us that Helen Thomas is Ava Gardner's twin when they gush about Michelle's fashion and style sense.

She dresses like she's going to the mall or trying to be her daughters' friends' buddy. Her 'ability to dress herself' is BROKEN.

“She serves as a symbol of middle-class progress, feminist achievement, affirmative-action success and individual style.”.....

Sounds like tingly leg syndrome to me!

What a load of dirty diapers.

Michelle sucks. End of story. So does her husband. I can’t wait until they are gone.

I have nothing against her, except that she’s a flaming liberal who seems to hate the United States.

The media’s desperate attempt to portray her as some kind of paragon of charm is amusing. It would be better for her, IMO, if they gave her more serious coverage of her first lady activities.

She serves as a symbol of middle-class progress, feminist achievement, affirmative-action success and individual style. And she has done all this on the world stage...while being black.

If I were a Black woman, I'd be very insulted. What on earth does the color of her skin have to do with anything? I wonder what the author thought about Condi? (A woman who succeeded on the world's stage without a husband's coat tails? Never-mind, dumb question!

Sarah Palin, on the other hand, “used fashion to convey ‘pretty,’ not power,” said Givhan. If Palin had spent the $150,000 at Wal-Mart rather than at Neiman Marcus and Saks, Givhan suggested, perhaps people wouldn’t have been so appalled at the cost of her wardrobe. But the high-end designs and expensive jewelry were out of touch with her “Joe Six Pack” audience. Additionally, Palin’s wardrobe, while expensive, wasn’t particularly noteworthy: Nothing about her clothing choices crafted an image of power.

Robin Givhan on another politically smart woman.

It’s perfectly true - I eye her with awe and disbelief every time I see another of her thriftstore outfits. Can’t SOMEONE tell the Empress, if she doesn’t do another thing, LOSE the too-tight cardigans!
