Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.
She should have done the full burkha... she looks even more Chewbacca-like with her head stuck in that scarf.And yeah, her hand placement... did she forget that she's in public and that there are cameras on her?
I posted something on this too.Michelle Obama's wardrobe, overall, is an international embarrassment. Gotta laugh at this part of Karen's comment: she looks even more Chewbacca-like with her head stuck in that scarf.
Consider me scarred. won't even attempt to top the Chewbacca line.
It pisses me off when someone from the US (governmental officials, reporters, etc) wear head coverings when they go to a Muslim country. When's the last time you seen one of the Muslim women visiting her and taking the scarf off?
I'm guessing she'd look better in a bikini.
My eyes, my eyes!You need a stronger warning.
Karen Howes: lol. She'd look like a blue skyscraper in one of the full burqas. As far as the hand placement goes, how can anyone forget there are cameras everywhere especially when greeting a grand poobah from another country?
Always On Watch: I could forgive the awful fashion sense if the press didn't fawn all over her and call her the next Jackie O. The inappropriate behavior is unforgiveable because she is representing our country.
Annoying Joe: We're all scarred by this boorish couple. Chuck: I understand your point. I don't like to see our women wearing veils either. When I was a kid, it used to anger me that females had to wear some sort of head covering in the Catholic Church. On the other hand, most dignified heads of state do their best to comport themselves according to the mores of the host country. For example, Benazir Bhutto often appeared without a head covering while visiting the US. I think it has more to do with diplomacy which the Obamas just don't seem to get. I guess they don't pay attention during the protocol briefings. Or the Japanese
Gorilla Bananas: Aaaack! Now you're talking some real eye burnage. Jan: If I knew how to add sound effects the The BLOG, I would've inserted a red alert siren for this post. This is something that once seen, you can't unsee.
Cube, I actually see your point and I don't have as much of problem with governmental officials following protocol. I'm just saying reporters don't have to and it is rare to see Muslims following the same protocol. It's too much of a one-way street.
Thanks for the laugh cube! Of course, it was accompanied by the presence of a little bit of vomit in my mouth, but you have to take the good with the bad :)
You girls will understand when I note that Michelle's pants were draping behind her bare feet as if her shoe heels must have been 4" tall! Right? Here she is meeting short little Indonesians and she wants to TOWER over them AND her husband? Is it playing on the possible Napoleonic complexes of her tiny hosts or is she that brain dead about anything but HOW SHE COMES OFF?
Holy shit! A meeting of childish jackasses on the web. Who gives a f%#$ if you don't like her clothing, shoes, scarf, but calling her Chewbacca-like is idiotic.
Ooh, a moron missing the point. MO should NEVER have dressed as she did. It cowtows to the Islamist misogyny that Sharia law forces upon women. She's supposed to be the first lady of the US, for God's sake!
Brooke, congratulations on winning the ignorant American prize for the week. Here's a picture of another boorish couple displaying servile deference to religious traditionalists. http://www.ronaldreagan.com/forums/showthread.php?t=435
Chuck: I agree with you about the journalists. They shouldn't have to follow any of the protocol. Some do it just to appear so much more internationally clever than everyone else. DaBlade: I understand. Glad you partially liked it ;-)Z: I don't know what goes on in that brain. The woman usually wears flats because of her height. Whether purposeful or accidental, it looks bad and I'm not even referring to the crotch scratch. What was she thinking?
rectalfly: Too bad, too sad for you if you don't like it. My blog, my rules. I decide the contents and I'm pretty happy with it. Brooke: Moochelle's outfit was bad on so many levels. It seems to be a common theme with her. Ever since Obama started to tank, I've noticed trolls popping up at conservative sites tring to mitigate the latest boneheaded mistake by his administration. Sometimes they take the high road and admonish the right to be better than the left and not criticize. Sometimes they can't control their anger over voting for such a loser that they project their rage onto those who remind them of the mistake.
Sometimes they just think it is wrong to criticize women for there looks, clothing, et al and they don't give a crap about their political affiliation http://rctlfy.wordpress.com/2010/11/12/clitme-classical-liberal-in-the-modern-era/http://rctlfy.wordpress.com/2010/10/08/81/
Oh my! I had a friend who's mother once told us that was what front pockets were for... should I pass that on to MO?
"rectalfly"! *schnort*Cripes Suzette
For some reason lately, my follow comment notification has been very spotty lately. Sorry it took me so long to get back. Your troll keeps right on missing the point, Cube, and that pic of the Reagans illustrates it's ignorance beautifully.
Brooke you completely missed my POV. I acknowledge yours, and deemed it unsophisticated.FLOTUS represent our country in their host's customary manner because of established tradition. I don't give a crap about their political affiliation. http://slog.thestranger.com/2007/10/laura_bush_dons_hijab_right_wing_outrage
I wanted pancakes, but after seeing that scratchy itch, Aunt Jemima better wash her hands first.
Rctlfy: Exactly. I don't give a crap about their political affiliation, either. The First Lady represents a country which is supposed to be a shining example of freedom. Sharia law enslaves women; they are literally worth half that of a man and treated as chattel. For ANY FL to validate that is obscene. This is just the latest example. Of course, I'm sure that Obama could've put his wife in a full burqa and you'd consider it 'cultural.' Beamish: Makes you want to never, ever let anyone else cook for you again, eh? :)
