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.

The pictures really say it all, he’s a self-proclaimed craft beer fan…

“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.”

This is some craziness…

I’m as excited as the next guy, and call me a cynic, but this is definitely some craziness. That’s quite an outpouring of people, but I guarantee you half of them are there because its a big party for something cool, not because it is a big something for a cool party. See what I did there? Ya, wordplay, its cool…


P.S. don’t worry, Pepsi’s got us covered…

Am I the only liberal who doesn’t think this funny? Apparently, throwing shoes at someone in Iraq is a total dis. Ya, that’s badass, I’m mad at you and the only thing I can think to do is wing my size nine hush puppies at you…

Obama might be my new hero: a human president.

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
