Best dressed?

Here’s the thing. Michelle Obama wouldn’t necessarily make a Vanity Fair’s worst-dressed list, but the fact that she made their best-dressed list and they used a picture of her with full-on boob spillage, shows that they just picked her because they like her, not because she can throw together an outfit.

Update: To be fair, having gone through the rest of the list I can now see that their terrible choices with even worse accompanying photo, was not limited to our first lady.

I like Prince Heinrich’s cause.

The Knights of Malta

And Michelle Obama looks like she has a vise fastened to her underarm, underneath her dress, in that photo. Who on earth was the person who thought she belonged on that list?

It’s amazing how much work is done by so many people, in such a wide variety of professions, to convince the rubes that the Obama’s are something they are clearly not – her a fashion queen and him a president.

Can you imagine if the wife of a Republican president was about six feet tall and had shoulders and hips that wide ?

She would be gently made fun of routinely by Maher, Letterman, et al.
At the very least, without blatantly calling her an “Amazon woman,” they would slyly “mention” that the Republican President’s wife is six feet tall and has a jaw that you could crack walnuts with.

But with Michelle Obama, they never ever mention that she’s six feet tall.

Instead, we’re told she’s the most fashionable, most beautiful woman on the planet.

Forty years from now, they WON’T be re-making those Snickers commercials starring the petite & dainty Betty White where they tease a guy for “playing football like Michelle Obama.”

…that’s because it would be perceived as a compliment.
