NBC's Today Swoons Over Michelle Obama Shopping at Target
MRC ^ | Sept 30. 2011 | Kyle Drennen

Friday's NBC Today devoted an entire segment to photos of First Lady Michelle Obama stopping by a Target store in Alexandria, Virginia, as Capitol Hill correspondent Kelly O'Donnell – on location at the shopping center – gushed: "Check this out. Behind those dark glasses, tucked under that Nike cap, one of the world's most famous women. Yes, that is the First Lady of the United States at Target.

A sound bite was featured of The Washington Post's Amy Argetsinger touting the "wow factor" of the First Lady going to the department store. Later, O'Donnell declared: "Doing ordinary things in tough economic times can be good for a public image." A sound bite followed from left-wing Huffington Post senior politics editor Howard Fineman: "It's great PR for them, because they can say, 'Look, on this trip and others, we know what's going on outside the gates of the White House.'"

" These women are the reason stupid shows like “The View” and “Ellen” continue to apparently do well in the ratings..."

Forgot the once mighty Queen of day time Queen Jezebel herself who corrupted a whole generation of women, Oprah.

Is that a Nike logo on the cap?

Didn't Sarah Palin get a complaint filed against her for wearing a logo at one of her husband's snowmobile races?

Nevermind, she's not an elected official.... Carry on...

" Bad news for them .... we know them too well to believe it again. It may have worked the first time but as the saying goes “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me”.

Wasn't fooled by them the first time around.

Imagine the horror if she stepped foot in a Walmart!

By looks, she'd fit right in. It's the entourage that would make the checkout lines a pain.

So, is Target where she buys her $600 earrings? After all, when Bush handed out the rebates (or whatever they were) to taxpayers, Michelle scoffed at the small amount and said that was just a trifle, like a pair of earrings. Michelle, to many of us $600 is a house payment, not earrings.

I’d like to know when was the last time she stepped into a Target since becoming First Lady.

Did NBC ponder if she was wearing her $42,000 bracelet in Target?

Maybe she thinks we little people are just thst stupid.

The so called “elites” all think we are stupid - that's why they make it mandatory they take care of us for our own good. I hope they continue to think we are stupid until 2012 when we prove overwhelmingly - we're not! At least that's MY plan.

Well, I have started writing a song about all this folksy stuff Obama is doing, but I have not finished it yet:

(Can The)Country Bear Obama

He's been a droppin' his "g"s
Wearin' wife beater tees
And a John Deere baseball cap

Even got Moochelle
Shoppin' Target as well
And the kids turnin' off that rap

Gonna visit Nashville
Even set up a still
Right on the White House lawn

Cause he needs them votes
From the Redneck folks
Or in twenty twelve he's gone

Chorus: Now can the Country Bear Obama???
With his faux folksy appeal???
Now can the Country Bear Obama???
Or do weeee, want someone REAL???

Sooo, I am still working on this, but it is pretty easy to sing to.
