You Will Never Understand the Right's Radioactive Freakout Over FLOTUS


Unless you wear the special glasses.

Our First Lady is a strong, accomplished, self possessed woman. Few things are more terrifying to the Villagers. Oh yeah, unless that woman ALSO happens to be black ;)...

As they said on PBS, Michelle Obama is quite popular.

The only exception to that, really, is Republicans.

I think they are jealous because she has more than 1 tooth.

Drifty -

What FLOTUS said last night was essentially what you and BG tell us everyweek on the podcast: we need to step out of the closet as liberals and show everyone that we are nothing to be afraid of.

Michelle's speech was amazing because she did exactly that. She was a mom, not a president's wife, with the same hopes and fears of any spouse. She didn't just humanize herself and her family, she made the entire office of the Presidency a normal thing occupied by normal people. No super-powers, just parents checking homework after dinner, and worried about the politics of middle-school girls.

I suspect that all the boys down in Tampa had one of those, O Crap moments.

You should see the venom that's flowing out of their fingertips on youtube. It's disgusting, but entertaining when they make excuses when people call them out. One called the First Lady 'Moochelle', then claimed it was because she was mooching off of taxpayer money, not that he was comparing her to a cow. Jackasses.

Sean Riley is correct. Michelle Obama is incredibly threatening to the Patriarchy.

Must we refer to her as "FLOTUS" ffs? It sounds like a portmanteau of "bolus" and "Floating", ie something nasty that won't go down the pipes.

I theorize that a great portion of the vitriol against Michelle Obama comes from a juvenile male mind-set that wants to a. shock liberals (i.e. comment trolling) and b. get their immature jollies by spouting hideously racist bullcrap, issues that typically have no merit...they bash MO for things every First Lady in the whitehouse does, but for her its horrible because it's on the taxpayer's dime, hence welfare: black people expecting free stuff, paid for by working class whites.
