I should like Michelle Obama, but I don't
TimesOnline.co.uk ^ | 7/6/08 | Camilla Long

Posted on 07/06/2008 6:48:20 PM PDT by melt

I know I should like Michelle Obama. But . . . I just don’t.

I can’t! Because, every time I try, I’m snake-charmed back by the pearlised nail varnish and Mars Attacks! hair of the one, the only, the ultimate power cheerleader: Cindy McCain.

It all came to a head the other week when the putative First Fembot bowled through London on her way back to America from Vietnam. (Clearly, heiresses don’t worry about their carbon footprint — just as long as it’s a diamond-studded, snake-skin-heeled stiletto mega-stomp.)

With an Air Force One blow-dry and coral-pink lipstick, the former junior rodeo queen was clearly on a charm offensive. “Oh garsh,” she fluttered when asked about the 71-year-old pepaw — far from being over the hill, he actually “wore her out”, and if campaigning ever got too arduous, she sweetly contented herself with the fact that that she had “a ringside seat on American history”. The general impression was that Mrs McCain, in the style of Laura Bush and Nancy Reagan, doesn’t really want to be First Lady at all, and is, instead, rather looking forward to getting back to her diamonds and the delights of the Dallas Crystal Charity Ball once her husband has got this highfalutin political jiggery-pokery out of his system.

John McCain embarrassed by aide's terror gaffe The more John McCain is right on Iraq, the more he loses How much more reassuring than Michelle Obama, who comes from the “I’ve got a leather skirt, I’ve got a leather Birkin bag, I’ve got a PhD in whupass” school of political wifery. We’ve only just got rid of Chony and Billary, for pity’s sake, and here we are again with yet another twinkly-eyed charisma merchant whose gobby wife can barely stop herself from grabbing the microphone.

I don’t think that’s very fair. NObama Girl seems pretty sweet.

This is the part that confuses me....It isn't in the original article nor in any of the sidebar headlines that I could see.

"I shouldn’t despise Michelle Obama, but I do."

Thats a lot closer to my sentiment than the poor excuse of a writers.

Except I don't know about the word 'despise'. Got anything stronger?

"I'm sorry, that's just what comes into my mind whenever I see that pic. it's involuntary, so I guess that makes me a racist."

Not only that, but not voting for Brawk Hussein Obama makes you a racist too.

Thanks for the correction. As soon as I can put this information into a context that applies to what I was saying I know that I will be totally and completely enlightened!!!!!
I did get a laugh out of this post. My wife is a teacher and when she really feels the need to correct me I look at her and laugh and totally ignore her for at least 5 minutes. I mean I act like she does not exist. She has learned that I am not one of her students and I'm not a child. If I talk to her at all I will ask her the same question that being, “ would you correct that person over there if they made the same error as I just did.” I will ask this question loudly and point to the person I'm talking about.
So if you feel the need to correct me have at it. I'll just smile and keep on with things.

“Look,its true that Michele is an angry,in your face, confrontational black woman.”

I think it’s a party issue.

Michelle Obama is the black Hillary Klintoon. Angry, vengeful and full of self. Just imagine the “Enemies of Obama” list that Michelle will compile!!

Not bad at all. You’ve been a member for 13 days and you’re already posting snide little innuendoes. Not bad, troll.

Of course not. She doesn't pretend to. Neither do I.

The Gores of this world don't worry about their carbon footprint either, but they spend a lot of time worrying about yours, because they expect you to pay and they expect to broker the deal.

Troll?

Because I’m shocked that a man called his wife the c word? In front of other people no less?

Is that the reaction here?

And just because I just joined to post to articles doesn’t mean I have had my head in the sand up until then. Did your life begin with a membership to Freerepublic? Sad.

I hope you are right. After looking it up last night, I see the earliest reporting of this is in April of 2008. I think I am doubting this rumor.

What is sadder is that a journalist is using it in an article and it seems that is all it is, a rumor.

McCain and the C word is right up there with Bush and massive cocaine use in the unproven gospel of the Left. Anonymous sources in a McCain hit piece book do not equal credibility.

Thinking conservatives who have been paying attention are aware of this, they aren’t out spreading the Big Lie. Why are you doing so?

Please see post #79 I posted earlier.

Being polite gets you far in life, as the poster saw who answered me politely.

And how do you get I was spreading anything? I was quoting the article that was posted.

I can assure you, women called Camilla who write for the “Style” section of the Times are not proletarian, by any stretch of the imagination.

Vapid, elitist and completely pointless, yes, but never proletarian.

I think Michele is,like most black people,a true chameleon.In other words,she culturally adapts to her environment.
When in the church chopping it up with the sisters after a rollicking Wright speech and then being oh so proper at one of Mayor Daley’s official city receptions filled with white muckety mucks.
I think she is just another round the way girl who lucked out with a good education and an ambitious husband and she is going to ride that gravy train to the fullest!
