What better way to celebrate a dominant opening to group play at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London than with a hug from the first lady of the United States?
After the final buzzer of their 98-71 win over France on Sunday, members of the U.S. men's national basketball team shook hands with their vanquished opposition, gathered at center court for a brief cheer, then walked off the court to a rousing ovation from the fans at the Basketball Arena in London. Before they headed back to the locker room, though, they took a quick left and headed straight for Michelle Obama President Barack Obama's wife, who greeted the full U.S. athletic delegation on Friday who was seated in the front row to take in the action.

Is NBC using the Olympics as one big Hussein infomercial?
She’s hoping if this White House thing doesn’t work out she can be one of the Basketball Wives. She’d fit right in if you know what I mean.
meanwhile, I would love to try this .. in another life maybe.. Go Slovakia!

Can you blame her for wanting a hug from a real man?

If I were those athletes, I’d get some blood tests.
. . . is a hug better or worse than a terrorist fist bump?
So, from the American media perspective, this whole Olympic extravaganza turns out to be just a multi-million dollar vehicle to showcase Michelle Obama.
- See Michelle's fabulously expensive new wardrobe (and check out the toned arms).
- Watch as Michelle struts her stuff with the Royal family.
See how the dazzling Michelle shows up Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
- Watch as Michelle wows the wrestling team.
- Michelle smiles.
- Michelle shows off her hairy armpit.
- Basketball team wins? So what - look at Michelle!
Harden, don’t do it man...
With the press lying to us how special she is with all her tacky expensive clothes.
That's a sight bartenders and bouncers hate to see, a drunken unattached woman acting out. And a drunken woman with near absolute power is the absolute worst. That player in the lower right looks like the Moose's display ruined the sweetness of the team's victory.
These pix are going to be scrubbed PDQ
Weird...another arranged photo op for the Obamas, like the one on the Kiss Camera was at the exhibition game in D. C. Enough already.
She’s up against Madonna and Kristen Stewart for bad publicity hog of the month. Excess is allowed. ;-)
Have to look good for the Olympics. And, they complained about Palin's 150,000 dollar wardrobe allowance!
Marxists have no class, and no shame.
