I read the following article on Mrs. Obama in the New York Daily News……and I knew instantly why I like living in Russia. Though Russia has the beginnings of a plastic-faced, shallow, consumer society, this article on Mrs. Obama’s tennis shoes says a lot about the pre-occupation with her celebrity and not her substance. The Avrage Russian still has the good sense not to be quite this, well – showy (Oligarchs excepted). Can we say “show boat”, can we say “clothes (shoes) whore – is it all right to use the word “whore” when talking about the 1st Lady. My free speech instincts say it’s OK but the thought police will probably be all over me.
When you are the 1st Lady of the United States (still the most powerful nation on the planet if you count F-22’s, F-35’s and 11 carrier battle groups), I would suppose she would like to be remembered about the substantive things. Like why she is REALLY a socialist-elitist wanting to destroy the entrepreneurial engine that IS America? You would think she is Hugo Chavez for God sake! Why do you suppose she wants to meddle in her husband’s flailing administration (watch the negative polling data grow, day by day….. Can we say “Thank You Joe Biden” for the sterling sound bites on so many topics that show you to be the boob that is a heart-beat away). Obama has to make the 4 years or we are doomed if Biden comes to power!
Most importantly, why does Michelle even wear $540.00 tennis shoes? Such fashion statements set a poor example for the planet especially teenagers. Is she going to donate a couple pair of these shoes to starving kids in Africa? She needs to re-think the whole fashion thing. If this is going to be a socialist-egalitarian administration she needs to shop only at DSW – you get great shoes for under $79.95 – those prices really level the playing field and make it “fair” for all the little Americans. She can get her blouses at T.J. Maxx where Laura Ingraham shops. Laura is so sensible.
Mostly this story shows that American’s are shallow and the media (so-called mainstream)
are lap dogs for this bunch of gangstas from Chicago. Michelle Obama’s wardrobe says nothing about the hard issues – only how silly and gullible the public is and that the Obama’s have nothing to offer –really!
