Michelle Obama Bringing Glamor to Moscow (Shower Curtain Fashion Alert!)
Yahoo News ^ | CATRINA STEWART

Posted on 07/04/2009 4:39:49 AM PDT by Dallas59

MOSCOW – Michelle Obama brings her superstar glamor to Moscow this weekend as she accompanies her husband on his summit with the Russian president.

But the American first lady, who has wowed publics in the U.S. and Europe with her easy elegance and charm, will perhaps face a bigger challenge in winning over a Russian public that has scant respect for women who grab the limelight from their powerful husbands.

In a country where a presidential candidate once quipped he'd sooner pack his wife off to a convent than allow her to dabble in politics, Russia still has trouble with the concept of an empowered woman behind the throne.

Most people don't remember this...there was a part of the Obama crowd pushing this hand signal that they could use at rallies, and to greet each other. They thought it was very clever, the "O" was obvious, for Obama, the interlocked fingers had to do with many coming together, and so on. They could do this above their heads, flash it to each other to let them know their allegiance, etc.

It was all well and good, until someone with a brain larger than a pea realized just how completely CREEPY it was, and it died quiet death after a few articles made it to the national level. If there was any doubt about how deranged these people are, check out this quote from the link below: "...Much thought went into the relatively simple idea. "You interlace your hands in a circle, the interlacing being a symbol of different types of people coming together and the circle a symbol of unity..."

You can still find the US News and World Report article on it here...they can't scrub EVERYTHING...

When I saw the poster, I immediately thought of the famous head in the rear poster, and made this little animated gif.

You know what? She’s not ugly. She is sour, angry, resentful, and arrogant, and these traits come out on her face, but the basic architecture of her face is not at all bad. She could be actually pretty if she were filled with love, joy, and peace. The best plastic surgeon for a middle-aged woman is Jesus.

And she is not fat. She is clearly carrying some extra weight on her thighs and butt, same as most of us other middle-aged women. It’s not easy getting that off, especially when you have to sit through two or three really delicious official meals every day. Most of us would not mind her ten or fifteen pounds on the caboose if she were a Republican. We never minded when Laura Bush or Barbara Bush put on some extra weight because they were lovely women.

It’s this insistence that she is a great beauty and a fashion icon that is maddening. The “great beauty” line is of course designed to alleviate the liberal guilt of the mass media. I believe it’s a bit like modern art: if you say it’s all ugly, stupid, degenerate garbage, you’ll be labelled a philistine and a racist.

Obama and Michelle desecrate the sacred ground that is the White House by their very presence there.

“.....superstar glamor.....”

“.....wowed publics.....”

“.....easy elegance and charm.....”

“..... the edgy fashion sense that has attracted a nationwide following.....”

Michelle Obama is a completely average middle aged woman.

As George Bush once said, this is the “the soft racism of lowered expectations.”

Michelle brings sweater sets and Boob Belts to the land of Lenin and the Ruskies swooooooon.

Whatever happened to that model/actress/pole dancer Putin dumped his wife for? Photos of her and our new Jackie-O should be fun.

Articles like this are prima facie evidence of an Orwellian conspiracy by certain media outlets to paint the Marxist thugs in the White House as glamorous, smart, Christian, and competent.

The truth is that they are anything but, and these propagandists that are shilling for them had better enjoy it while they can because their days are numbered

She describes Michelle's style as "very fresh," as someone who mixes boldly "but in a very refined way."

Yes, refined. That's the word I was looking for.

Except maybe for the Fox Network to some extent, I thought they were all in on it and trying to shove it down our throats. Only good thing is Freepers are not buying into it. Geeze, these morons act like an Obamagasm is the best they've had all their lives, just ask Chris Matthews.

There was a picture of Meagan Fox in People a few weeks ago and she had on a cotton dress, cardigan sweater and big ole Boob Belt. They gave her an “F”.
