The Mrs.


I have to admit it, I have developed a sort of odd fascination with Michelle Obama. Daily, I search Free Republic to see what fashion faux paux she committed for the day. Each extravagant and self indulgent outing gives up more and more insight into her person. And I am hooked. I like to study personalities and hers is nothing if not casebook.

How high up will her belt be today? Is she still wearing the green pumps with every outfit? How big is the bow today? Why, with all her resources, did she never get that highly unattractive under-bite fixed? How much did she spend on her sneakers? Inquiring minds need to know.

I have to admit I never liked her. She always came off as angry and mean spirited to me. The more of herself she shows us, the less I like her. But, she is something like a well written villain on a soap opera, she is the reason you keep tuning in everyday. You just can not wait to see what disaster she will be in the middle of next.

Interestingly enough, I am finding out that I am not the only person with this syndrome. Blogs devoted to her are popping up all over the ether. I came across two just today.

I have to admit I am a little envious I did not think to do this first. I'd never run out of material. Another thought, I think we might be hitting on a cottage industry here.


  1. LOL - she is so much fun to write about!!!
    It is my hobby to see what I can dish out each day. Today I figured out that her waist is about 35" and hips at least 46". If I'd takemore time I could calculate exactly what her measurements are because there is one photo from May where she is wearing a painted on dress, orso it looks, and a perfect profile of that.
    Have fun!

  2. Great blog RJ. Good to know that there are others out there, doing the work of the American people.

    Hat tipped you back on
    for the great photo. Thanks.

  3. I just LOVE to snark on her. Between the two of them, they make especially easy targets.
