Michelle's Fashion Cultists

The LA Times, not noticing anything of import occurring in the world at the monent, has published one of thousands of similar articles promoting the idea that Michelle Obama is a beautiful, fashionable trend setter.

In this piece (one which is too full of written drool to actually quote), the writer has managed to included dozens of glowing, sickening observations that Mrs. Obama's wardrobe and how she fashionably invents herself for public appearance, has single-handedly changed the world of fashion.

As one of the LA Times commenters points out, if we all had a mansion full of servants and a personal staff of 24, perhaps we'd all be able to excel in the exciting world of fashion

How many more of these inconsequential, meaningless, propaganda pieces actually need to be written about this woman?

  • A woman who has stated that she had never been proud of her country until her Messianic husband had been elected President.
  • A woman who insensitively wore a $500 pair of shoes to a photo-op at a D.C food bank for the poor.
  • A woman who once claimed that Americans are "just downright mean, guided by fear," and "we're a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents (sic)."
  • A woman who, along with her husband, sat in the church of firebrand racist Rev. Wright for 20 years.
  • A woman who has worn such ugly ensembles, she could be mistaken for a modern art masterpiece.
  • A woman whose under bite makes the creatures in the movie "Gremlins" jealous with envy.
  • And as for her much worshiped, toned arms: I've seen more attractive appendages on heroin addicts.

All of the gaudy baubbles, odd clothing combinations, and well-intentioned gardening can not cover up the fact that, through your own past words and deeds, you are a mean-spirited, self-promoting fad.

And all of the pricey duds adds to nothing more than placing a silk hat on an angry pig.

There comes a point in time when media saturation of a person starts to make the public turn on that person. The constant worship of someone ultimately becomes uncomfortably obsessive to witness.

Her time for this is now.

(And for those of you pleasant, sincere liberal defenders out there who think this is purely some mean rant, just remember the kind of things you and your ilk said about Sarah Palin and her family.)

oh my dear Shawn Shallow... this itty bitty post lacks both style and substance.

For example, there is nothing that makes it OK for you or anyone else to make fun of someone else's body shape. Got it? NOTHING! Even if a "leftist" has done it in the past.

It's simply tasteless.

I'm also wondering if you have a reading comprehension problem because that article is really not what you describe. It states that while Mrs. Obama has an influence on fashion, it hasn't translated into increased sales across the board.

There's plenty to criticize Michelle Obama about without resorting to snide comments about her bones and muscles. Do see if you can look deep enough to find it.

Shawn:

Gee, Donna B.

Where you been? I sure have missed your contributions to the running commentary.

I sure do hope you come around more often, 'cause I'm really trying to impress you.

And calling me Shawn "Shallow". Why, I've never heard that before! Bravo!

You should be proud of yourself for "inventing" something which I heard in third grade.

As far as lack of "reading comprehension," perhaps you should re-read the post again.

No where did I claim that the article insinuated she had "increased sales across the board," only that she influenced the trends.

And, you know what? I don't give two squirts of piss if you like my posts. If I want to call Michelle a meatball on a stick, I will.

You've been nothing but an antagonistist shrew since I've started here, with a penchant for telling me how much you dislike what I write.

So, why bother?

Get some new batteries, take a hot bath, and for corn's sake, work on those saddle bags.

Bruce Henry:

Your last few posts, Mr Mallow, have been bitching about "puff-pieces" from the press about President Obama and now, his wife. In them, you spout ugly insults, over the top sarcasm, and hyperbolic buzzwords like "henchmen," "minions,", "thugs," etc., etc., etc.

Perhaps your back pain and the meds you must take for it are making you grumpy and grouchy. Your pieces posted here smack of envy and bitterness. Can't you think of something to criticise Obama about that MATTERS?

Every president and first lady have puff-pieces in the press. Especially first ladies! I suggest, if they anger you so much in your misery, DON'T READ THEM.

Shawn:

Bruce,

You dopey prick.

First, fuck you about my medical issues. These two whores disgust me whether I am in pain or not.

Second, you complain about most EVERY post on this site, so don't act like you can pick and choose now.

If you are going to tell me that the Obama's haven't had an inordinate amout of fluffy media coverage, than you are simply stupid, a liar, or a stupid liar.

Amazing, you grill a blogger for for pointing out the fact that "legitimate" media outlets act like sceaming Beatle fans for these two.

Third, crawl back into that cave you call a life and shut the hole under your nose.

You're and idiot.

oh poor shawn. Being picked on. You didn't mention body shape except the overbite part. Or is the mouth not a part of the body?

You are shallow. I really do not understand why you are allowed to write here.

Madalyn:

Donna and Bruce appear to have been bitten by the Obama bug....let's see now: transparency, no new taxes, laugh at McCain for mentioning taxing health plans, then does it himself (only for us poor folks, not his union THUGS), plus many, many more lies. Too bad Donna and Bruce can't grow up and accept he is a liar, his wife is no better than a shell of a person, and get off the backs of those who know what kind of a POS our fearless leader is.

Shawn:

Donna,

I think we may have made an eHarmony match between you and Bruce.

How predictable: "getting picked on."

I see. Someone answers one of your "shallow" posts which consists of nothing but a lecture on what kind of content someone should write about, and your automatic response is to call the other person out for responding?

Perhaps you don't get the fact that, sometimes, there are reasons for writing posts this way. Action/reaction? Weeding out hypocrites? Showing there really is no defense for the collective "unbiased" media to treat the Obamas with the kind of perverted obsession they have exhibited?

I find it ironic that the ever bitching lefties which slither around this site seem not able to defend even this.

Listen. You don't like me and I don't like you.

And that's fine.

This is not a place for robotic agreement.

And remember: Work on those saddlebags. Bruce HATES saddlebags.

Bruce Henry:

Sheeeesh. Sorry I went too far. Take it easy.

And I see how wrong I was. You're not grouchy or grumpy at all.

See, I thought that how this works is, a writer posts an article, then people comment on it. In their comments, they say what they like or don't like about the piece. Or, in the case of a recurring writer, about his body of work, perhaps.

After that withering sarcasm, (which cut me to the quick, I must say), I see now that I should only comment to say "Attaboy!" I'll keep that in mind from now on. Thanks for the criticism.

WildWillie:

Bruce, in actuality you present yourself as a very snooty, psudo intellectual who must grit his teeth to take time to comment on this site.

As one who does suffer very much with back pain it is not something to be made fun of which you did. A simple apology about your rudeness would have mitigated the entire follow up.

I would take time about all the sniping the left does and will continue to do with anyone conservative especially female, but what is the point? ww

Bruce Henry:

I'm fine, Mr Mallow.

You're right that your medical issues are none of my business. Although you DID write about them here, I shouldn't try to use them to make a point. I've got some minor lower back pain myself, nothing on the order of what you must endure.

I sincerely meant nothing personal, just a criticism of your recent posts. I've seen hundreds of puff pieces about every president since JFK. It seems only Republicans get upset about them, and then only about Democratic presidents.

All that is SO important! OMG, I'm so sorry I didn't see the DEPTH, the SUBSTANCE, the incredible importance of pointing out that at least you can recognize when the LA Times is shallow.
