True to her obnoxious self, “Lady” Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama made a “surprise” appearance via sattellite at Sunday night’s Oscar presentations bedecked in her cleavage-revealing gown and coiffed in her new Moe Howard bangs. She proved once again that putting lipstick on an even-toed ungulate in the genus Sus doesn’t make the ungulate a movie star.
Is that too harsh? Granted, the following lines from ”Lady” O. don’t reference lipsticked pigs but are they any less nasty?
–”If you can’t run your own house, how can you run the White House” (2008, ripping Hillary Clinton);
–”I want to rip his eyes out!” (2008, ripping Hillary’s hubby);
–”For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country” (2008, ripping the United States of America).
Okay, suggesting the FLOTUS is an oinker may be over the top. Maybe when she starts acting like the First Lady of the United States–or when the Secret Service arrests me for telling the truth and rips my eyes out– I’ll cease and desist.
And maybe not.
Hey, look, at least I didn’t mention what everyone including Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R, WI) has noticed, namely that “Lady” O. is endowed with a “big butt” and eats like a hog yet preaches good eating habits to fat kids and nor did I cite Barack’s evident interest in booty.
But, on to the Oscars.
Jennifer Rubin asks the excellent rhetorical question “Why Was Michelle Obama at the Oscars?” and why she ignored her “props,” America’s service men and women, even though she had “time to give a crumb to the gay community, applauding the movies that inspire us ‘no matter who we are or what we look like or who we love,’ since ‘they are especially important for our young people’ ” apparently unlike “real heroes,” our military.

I can easily answer Ms. Rubin’s question even if it is rhetorical: Michelle and Barack suffer from an adanced case of the non-fatal but serious condition, CED, Celebrity Envy Disorder.
Both the FLOTUS and the POTUS are seriously enamored with Hollywood and television entertainers of all (liberal) stripes and not only because those millionaires donate tons of money toward Obama’s campaigns. It’s also because, well, because they wish they too were adored celebs.
Reflecting their joint CED, the Obamas have hosted any number of soirees and “events” at America’s White House with guest lists usually restricted to liberals in the entertainment field in order to demonstrate their deep affection–and to stick it in the faces of anyone who thinks the First Couple should be even-handed regarding whom they invite to a gala.
It shouldn’t have come as any surprise when ”Lady” O. satellited onto the stage at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre as a “special guest,” danced with Jimmy Fallon who was dressed in drag, and presented the pretentiously-named Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences award for 2012 Best Picture of the Year to Ben Affleck’s “Argo.”
Michelle babbled on about films teaching us ”that love can beat all odds,” reminded “us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage within ourselves,” and enlightened all of us ignoramusi that through movies such as “Argo” ”our children learn to open their imagination and dream just a little bigger and to strive every day to reach those dreams.”
(Perhaps “Lady” O. was too lady-like to note the significance of the title “Argo,” explained in the film as an acronym for “Ah Go F*ck Yourself.”)
Celebrity Envy Disorder may be non-fatal but it can lead sufferers like Michelle Obama to publicly demean themselves and their positions by acting as if they were celebs and not politicians, by dancing with guys in drag as if she were a transsexual, and by forgetting the guys and gals in full dress uniforms that “brung ya” to a festivity.
I guess when you’re sucking up to fellow leftists, how can you possibly pretend to possess any class? I mean, let’s face it even if she can’t, “Lady” O. is no Jackie Kennedy or Laura Bush.
