The chattering chipmunks on the right never miss a chance to insult and denigrate the FLOTUS, Michelle Obama. No matter what she wears, what she eats, or how she smiles. It's all bitchy talk from them all the time, because, y'know, THOSE PEOPLE are in the White House.
I thought Laura Bush was a gracious First Lady, and no one that I know of attacked her for suggesting people read to their children--no one said she shouldn't tell other parents "what to do."
And she was never attacked for her looks, her body shape, or her fashion choices on this blog. I don't know what the problem is with the right wing bloggers who seem to relish making fun of our first African-American First Lady, but they do it with a vengance and full-on spite. They, of course, are the ones who come off looking like dreary little gossips who have nothing better to do than pick apart someone else instead of looking in the mirror and discovering the wreckage in their souls.
Just for the record, here are some photos from Laura Bush's time as our FLOTUS.
Her fashion choices are not anything I'd call elegant or stylish, but she was happy wearing them, and that's all that matters.
