'Ma'am, you rock': Washington Post gushes over Michelle Obama's 'amazing arms'
The Washington Examiner ^ | July 12 2014 | Paul Bedard

Posted on 07/12/2014 8:15:51 AM PDT by PoloSec

Even for a celebrity first lady who consistently out-polls her husband and everybody else in Washington, Saturday’s Washington Post review of her much-publicized “guns” hit a new level of coverage for her fit, model looks.

“It's true what they say about Michelle Obama. She has amazing arms,” wrote restaurant reviewer Tom Sietsema, who was seated near the first lady at the 14th Street Spanish restaurant Barcelona Thursday night.

“Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she moisturizes and clearly L’Oréal should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.,” he wrote in Saturday’s paper, adding: “Ma’am, you rock.”

Obama's fit looks, and especially her arms, have been the subject of media scrutiny and praise for years. There is even a blog titled, “Michelle Obama's Arms.”

Apparently, seeing them in pictures is one thing. In person, well, that’s something different, as the well-respected reviewer expressed in his story:

“As soon as I sat down, I spotted the reason for the abundant security. Even with her back to the crowd, the FLOTUS’s sleek coif, sleeveless dress (turquoise) and model posture gave away her identity.

“My first instinct was to tweet the sighting -- #TheSheBearIsLoose. My second impulse was to give the first lady, who enjoyed wine and dessert during dinner, her privacy. As it should, my news sense prevailed.

“I had a third thought, too: Draped across a companion’s chair, Michelle Obama’s arm was the best review Solidcore — the workout studio that the first lady reportedly frequents — could ever hope for.”

I am amazed the person could breath and write this piece when his head is so far up obama’s behind..

'Ma'am, you rock': Washington Post gushes over Michelle Obama's 'amazing arms'

Seinfeld alerted us to "man hands". now moochelle is acquainting us with the "full manly body of a manly man". The WaPo needs to wake up and listen to Joan Rivers.

Who was her companion? Isn’t it odd for any kind of lady to have “her arm draped over her companion’s chair”? The only case I can think where it might be permissible is if her companion is her child. And her kids are too old for that.

I’ve heard of “gushing” before but this was absolutely sickening. I couldn’t even read the whole thing. Sounds like the reporter has a mancrush on mikechelle.

She should be pilloried, not only for her constant attention seeking and sticking her nose into our children’s school lunches, but also for instigating the ugly sleeveless fad, thus exposing the flabby upper arms of TV anchors year-round. Enough!

She probably doesn’t listen to rock, so the sentiment is nonsensical anyway.

Since day 1, the media has been trying to convince people that plain and frumpy Mrs. Great Leader is the new hot momma in town. Didn’t see it then, don’t see it now. But, if it makes her happy, then whatever.

Why does anyone say this? She had 2 kids. Her high school graduation photo was of an absolutely hideous female. Considering how naturally ugly she is I’d say other people’s money has bought a decent job of making her look not quite so ugly on various occasions.

What point is there in diluting the dead serious issues we’re facing with MO is a tranny baloney?

Good thing FWOTUS uses appropriatre L’Oreal “moisturizer”! It makes the media-heads “pass-upwards” so much easier.

Joan Rivers was right.

Back in 2002, on a self-proclaimed "smartest food site on the Web," CHOW, nathan b. wrote about restaurant reviewer Tom Sietsema:

"Tom Sietsema, on the other hand-- is a relative newcomer to the city. San Francisco/ Kimpton/ Corporate tastes. Not as great a writer as Phyllis nor as evolved tastes..(which come with culture and not buying into all the corporate garbage). Sometimes I think he has the same style sensibilities as those two fellas that run the Inn at Little Washington. It is a value set that--ultimately -- is conservative gay chic."
