When is this damn softball player going to quit playing coy and get a show on Fox News with which to spread her bile?
SURPRISE: MAINSTREAM MEDIA UNDERHANDED! "'Hillary Rodham Clinton is still seething about losing the nomination.' 'Michelle Obama doesn???t like her country and is an angry black woman.' 'Bill Clinton continues to dis Barack Obama privately.' While hardly definitive, that???s some of the undercurrents swirling in much of the news coverage ??? particularly television news, some say ??? at the Democratic National Convention. 'I???m just amazed at the negative coverage, all the negative innuendo of things that do not exist,' former Clinton adviser Terry McAuliffe told Daily Variety. 'It???s all press invention.' … A veteran network producer said she has been 'mesmerized by the negative coverage. It???s unbelievable.'"
Michelle Obama spoke last night at the Democratic National Convention, but the real stars of the show were daughters Malia and Sasha, who took the stage to be adorable and wish their dad goodnight via satellite. These two girls are way better than the Bush twins.
When we think of politics, the first thing that comes to mind is fashion. And thank goodness celebrity handbag designer Timmy Woods created a piece representing Barack Obama and his campaign for the presidency. Ready to be impressed? The bag is made from Acacia Wood and is based on signs used by the Obama camp. Ooookay.
Woods said Michelle Obama will be the first taker, whether she likes it or not: "I hope she will get it in time to wear to [next week's] convention."
Tyra Banks has finally fulfilled her wish of making Barack Obama's run for the presidency all about her. In the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, TyTy poses as America's First Lady (God help us if that ever becomes a reality) and discusses how Barack's progress affected her.
When Barack won the nomination, I just started bawling. I started calling all these people, and everybody was talking to me like I was crazy. They???re like, ???Well, he hasn???t won yet,??? but I???m like, ???Yes, he has, because he???s gotten this far.'
And, because Tyra's the authority on all things presidential, she offered up her inane advice to Michelle Obama (to which Michelle is hopefully like, "No thanks").
I want [Michelle Obama] to not take herself too seriously. She???d need to know how to take a fierce picture, but at the same time be able to eat fried chicken, have grease on her fingers, and be okay with getting photographed like that, too.
DO YOU HAVE TO LET IT LINGER? "Smartypants magazine editor to CNN: If Comedy Central can do it, why can't we? That was a good part of New Yorker editor David Remnick's argument to Wolf Blitzer about the controversy the current issue of the magazine has whipped up by portraying Barack Obama and his wife as a couple of gun-slinging, bin Laden-loving terrorists on its cover. Remnick likened what the magazine has done to what 'The Daily Show' and 'The Colbert Report' do every weeknight on television. He said the point of the cover was to satirize the many right-wing rumors and innuendoes that have spread virally about the Democratic candidate."
THE KISS OF DEATH "View co-host Sherri Shepherd can't contain her admiration for potential first lady Michelle Obama. 'She is so poised, gracious, intelligent, charming and funny. … I would love to have her as a first lady!'"
Michelle Obama suffered through an entire hour of the The View this morning, because she's a good wife who will help her husband do anything to reach his dreams. You can bet after it was over, she called up Barack and informed him he would be doing the dishes for the next month. That aside, she came across like any other typical mother, which will surely still not be good enough for those who refuse to vote for Obama because he's black.
[Fox News] has released a statement saying it should not have referred to Mr. Obama???s wife, Michelle, as ???Obama???s Baby Mama,?????? as it did on Wednesday in an on-screen headline commonly called a ???chyron.???
???A producer on the program exercised poor judgment in using this chyron during the segment,??? Bill Shine, a Fox News senior vice president, said in a statement.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines the term as one ???chiefly in African-American usage??? that refers to, ???The mother of a man???s child, who is not his wife nor (in most cases) his current or exclusive partner.???
Y'know, if you have to apologize for calling an historical black man's wife a tramp and his children bastards, maybe it's time to hang up the microphones. You fucking dicks.
Bill Geddie, executive producer of experimental torture device The View, confirmed Wednesday that Michelle Obama, wife of Barack, will be guest hosting an upcoming episode of the show.
Like Cindy McCain did when she guest hosted The View in April, Obama will help interview guests and participate in the impotent rambling of "Hot Topics." Unfortunately, because of the inextricable connection between her behavior and the electability of her husband, Obama will not be able to put that wench Elisabeth Hasselbeck in her place. But that would be awesome.
Michelle Obama appeared on The Colbert Report to promote her husband's presidential campaign, and promote she did: She side-stepped any potentially funny joke in order to tell us how Barack is going to change the country. Listen lady, we know. We've heard it all before. The least you could do is play along with Colbert and appear to have a sense of humor.
Video after the jump.
