Michelle Obama’s official photo

First Lady Michelle Obama’s official photo was released a couple of weeks ago and she looks great.


Some folks including New York Times columnist David Brooks have gone batshit crazy over Michelle’s sleeveless wear. According to fellow New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd:

In the taxi, when I asked David Brooks about her amazing arms, he indicated it was time for her to cover up. “She’s made her point,” he said. “Now she should put away Thunder and Lightning.”

With the economy in the tank, thousands of folks losing their jobs and most folks losing money in their 401K, why is David Brooks so offended by what Michelle Obama is wearing?

While Michelle seems to scare the hell out of some Republicans, women such as Dowd, Bonnie Fuller and others have come to her defense.


Anyway I hope Michelle continues to wear what she’s comfortable in and to hell with the critics.
