Your picture with Michelle Obama? Thatíll be $5G [Boston Institute of Contemp Art March 9]
BostonHerald ^ | Friday, February 17, 2012 | Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa with Megan Johnson

Question: What would you pay to have your photo taken with first lady Michelle Obama, she of the ripped arms and healthy diet?

If you said 5 grand, well, you’re in the ballpark, because the First Spouse is headed to Boston next month to do a parade of grip-and-grins with local Demmies, Obama-ophiles, fitness freaks, Dougie aficionados and anyone else who can pony up the dough.

“I’ve been asked to be on the committee to gather women (men too) to come and hear, see and get a sense of this amazing lady,” wrote Brookline Democratic activist Diane Gallagher in a letter to Mish fans.

The first lady is doing two events in town, a panel discussion with representatives from the left-leaning Emily’s List, NARAL and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health at the Institute of Contemporary Art on March 9. A ticket to that event can be had for the bargain basement price of $500.

But the “formal dinner and photo opportunity” with Mrs. O that follows is the big ticket item: $5,000 a head (or $2,500 for preferred seating and no pic).

Get your own photo snapshot of the Wookie-in-chief on the sly, and you can Photoshop just about anybody else you wish into it. It’s so easy today and the results look so good, that it’s hard to understand the live photo-op any more.

If Photoshop is good enough for his Birf Certificut, why not for photo-ops. Make them virtual.

She looked great in that picture with Han Solo. I wonder how much he had to pay.

Five bucks to use her as a foot stool.

Take it or leave it.

Don't kid yourself, much like Hillary we are going to be burdened with this publicity whore for the rest of our lives.

We thought the Clintons where gone, but she became a Senator from NY, a candidate for President, and Secretary of State. All because she had the ability to look the other way when her husband invited STD’s into their marriage.

What will we have to pay the Wookie?

“I think I threw up.”


I know what you mean.

Was it a full on vomit or that nasty vomit/burp that just kinds of makes you want to vomit?

Ha!

What a waste of $5,000. I suppose if you got a signature you might recoup something on eBay or Craigslist.

Ah yes, now we see why she gave a free handshake to a few White House visitors yesterday...to provide cover for the ridiculous fundraising tactics down the road.

I just don’t believe anyone would pay me enough to be pictured shaking hands with a woman who hates America.

Makes more sense for the White House to pay people $5,000 to let Biggie MO stand next to them.
