Forgive me for not following the antics of Michelle Obama. I should. She is putting the fool in foolish. Not only is she trying to be the national nag about food and nutrition -- she is a lawyer, not a dietitian, Jim -- but she is turning into a gargantuan Big Foot in her overseas trips who is making Americans look like self-centered,insufferable jerks.
In other words, she is the perfect mate for our current president.
Jeannie DeAngelis at American Thinker has been following Missus Obama's travels and travails, and Jeannie DeAngelis is as embarrassed as I am.
How bad does Michelle Obama behave overseas? Well, Michelle Obama is on her second annual Asian tour. In Japan, the 6-foot-3 woman wore stilettos when she deigned to meet with the diminutive emperor and his wife. Very funny. What a hoot. Way to set Japan-U.S. relations back a half century.
Her daughters were supposed to accompany her but decided not to. There is hope for them.
"What transpired between February and March is anyone’s guess, but at this juncture what we do know is that those youthful sneers were nowhere to be seen when Mom tripped and almost fell, nearly crushing the diminutive Japanese Emperor Akihito. Thanks to their decision to sit this one out, Sasha and Malia also spared themselves the humiliation of having to smile while Mom played a Japanese version of 'Babalu' on the traditional Taiko drums," wrote Jeannie DeAngelis.
She played "Babalu" on Taiko drums?
Ozzy Osbourne pissed on the Alamo once. But he had an excuse. He was drunk.
He was not a Princeton and Harvard Law educated buffoon with a gigantic chip on his shoulder who thinks the world owes him a living as royalty because he is black.
But change those pronouns to female and you have Missus Obama pegged.
Don't think so? She was never proud of her country until her husband won a presidential primary, remember. And re-wind that Olympic pitch she and her just-as-awful husband gave for Chicago. It was all me, me, me.
She learned this at home, where it turns out Mom is a racist who initially opposed the marriage because Barack Obama is "half white."
And of course, attending black nationalist preacher Jeremiah Wright's church did not help.
I get the feeling Sasha and Malia are looking at their watches wondering when all this White House crap will end.
I know the rest of America is.
