So writes the WaPo's Krissah Thompson:
The first lady’s critics “are reacting to the culture in which they’ve grown up or they are using it as a code to racialize Michelle Obama and remind people that she’s black,” says Andra Gillespie, an associate professor of political science at Emory University. “It is unreasonable to expect a nearly 50-year-old woman to have the body of a 25-year-old. She looks great for her age.”
Who knew? Everyone I know who says Michelle Obama has a fat ass says so because ... Michelle Obama has a fat ass.
Once again, we see how so-called "progressives" are uniquely "qualified" to ferret out the clandestine racism of the body politic. Whether it's using golf to equate Boss Obama to Tiger Woods' extra-marital dalliances, or noting how referring to the president as "cool" is racist, to claiming peanut butter sandwiches are racist ... the typical garden variety American hears all this and goes "WTF??"
And here's a little advice for Boss Obama and crew, and the racer mainstream media: Obama and co. are from Chicago, for cripe's sakes. So grow up. If you can't stand the legitimate political heat and political comedy, make way for someone who can.Posted by Hube at February 5, 2013 06:03 PM | TrackBack
