That’s Classy…

1 May, 2009



Ok, I know this shit happens all the time and its a big deal for like a second and all that, but come one. You’re the first lady, not the queen of fucking England. You have to have tact and think about the feelings of Americans… that are going through a recession… that are losing jobs… and feed their kids ramen for fucking dinner every night…

First Lady Michelle Obama steps out in Lanvin sneakers and they’re only $540!

openquoteMichelle Obama has taken casual to a haute new level.
While volunteering Wednesday at a D.C. food bank, the First Lady sported her usual J.Crew cardigan, a pair of utilitarian capri pants and, on her feet, a sneaky splurge: trainers that go for $540.

That’s right: These sneakers – suede, with grosgrain ribbon laces and metallic pink toe caps – are made by French design house Lanvin, one of fashion’s hottest labels. They come in denim and satin versions, and have been a brisk seller all spring.

Oh Boo Fricking Hoo…

I’m middle class, too, you whiny bastards. I get what they are saying but things can be a lot worse, and they might be that way soon…

Yet, right now he is working seven days a week. The car is more than a decade old, the vacation home in Sandestin, Fla., comes at a moderate weekly rate because members of Ms. Parnell’s extended family own it. Her family of five would like more room than they have in their 2,500-square-foot home, yet they can’t afford anything larger. The downturn has them skittish about paying for renovations.

“I’m not complaining, but the reality is Obama may call me wealthy, but I thought we were just good old middle class,” says Ms. Parnell. “Our needs are being met, but we don’t have a load of cash to cover wants.”openquote

Today’s Noelism…

I didn’t really plan on making this a daily thing but Noel is so full of vim, vigor and opinions that its hard not to…

closequote Now..I know there’s a world financial crisis going on, but I went for a Chinese the other night in Oslo, right – and guess what? No fortune cookie! What the fuck is all that about? How is anyone supposed to plan for future events pertaining to one’s personal situation if you don’t know what the future holds? If the Chinese can’t afford to put cryptic analysis of future events (with lottery numbers) on a strip of paper inside a bendy-biscuit then we are well and truly fucked!! I wonder if Obama can sort that?

Inauguration

“To all the other peoples and other governments in other countries
Know that america is friend of each nation… We are ready to lead once more… Our security emanates from the justice of our cause… Begin to leave Iraq to its people”


“You cannot out last us, we will defeat you… For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness… Because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation… As the world grows smaller our mutual humanity will reveal itself…”



“You’re people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy… You are on the wrong side of history, we will extend the had if you are willing to unclench your fist…”


“The world has changed and we must change with it…”


He’s also saying that we should usher in a new era of America, internally and globally. Definitely a difficult task. “The price and promise of citizenship.”

Hey look!

a semi-intelligent person from Hollywood actually said something semi-worthwhile!



From (dear god, I know…) Perezhilton.com:

closequote“We are all starting on the same page, which is, this is our president, this is our country, and we’re going to do everything that we can to support him,” said the even keeled Whoopi. “And this is why Elisabeth is unlike anyone else you’re going to meet, because she is willing to make the steps … That’s why I love her.”

She also shared her assessment of the bitchfest that was Mann Coulter’s appearance on the ABC chat show: “She (Mann) wanted to sell her book, and she was able to go off looking like she was really upset. So, we gave her what she needed, and I hope she sells her books, and God bless her.”

I keep saying it and nothing happens, but all Ann Coulter needs is some bedroom time. She’s so high-strung and uptight, someone needs to ease that tension, baby, come on… wait, what?

Hilarious…

Someone posted their house for rent in DC for Obama’s inauguration on Craigslist:

“Along with my bedroom you will have access to the house’s many amenities including cable television (not that you watch much TV) for viewing Keith Olberman’s latest unhinged rants and CNN in high-def. Wireless internet means that the Huffington Post and DailyKos are only a click away on your MacBook. American flags and other patriotic paraphernalia in the room can be removed upon request.

Best of Craigslist

Obama might be my new hero: a human president.

Obama says he won’t be smoking in White House

closequoteWASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President-elect Barack Obama failed to give a straight answer when asked on a U.S. talkshow on Sunday whether he had managed to quit smoking.
In a country where cigarettes are responsible for one in five deaths and smoking costs tens of billions of dollars in health care, Obama has been under pressure to set an example by giving up his reported two-decade-old habit.
Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program, interviewer Tom Brokaw told Obama he had ducked answering the question during an interview last month with ABC’s Barbara Walters.
Noting that the White House was a no-smoking zone, Brokaw asked Obama, “Have you stopped smoking?”
“I have,” Obama replied, smiling broadly. “What I said was that there are times where I have fallen off the wagon.”
“Wait a minute,” Brokaw interjected, “that means you haven’t stopped.”closequote
