One of the many reasons why Michelle Malkin cannot be considered a serious journalist, or person of any true intellect and now, a dancer or comedian, is her extreme jealousy of others of importance — among other reasons. For example, her site Twitchy has been posting numerous ‘articles’ on Michelle Obama, who is not an elected official. But, she is the loving wife of the President so they attack her with vigor.
Recently Michelle Obama made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show, participating in a ‘The Evolution of Mom’ comedy dance routine. The video went viral. It was funny. The routine was not political, but Malkin made it political and her comedy routine is cringeworthy.

As I’ve been working this morning, there’s a few things I picked up just by reading headlines. One is that A.M.P.A.S. reached out to FLOTUS to ask her to present last night and that Harvey Weinstein facilitated it. So what’s Jennifer Rubin’s beef?
Um, (elbow) Jen? The main questions is “Why not?” and if that isn’t good enough for you…
Now granted it was taped as opposed to Mrs. Obama’s live presentation, but I’m sure there are reasons for that. Of course, that wasn’t her only beef-
She declared of the Best Picture nominees, “They reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage within ourselves.” Alas, none of the films nor her aides reminded her to mention the military, not those personnel behind her nor those serving overseas, an odd omission for the White House that nevertheless was pleased to have them arrayed behind her like, well, set decoration.
Alas, so sad that the woman does nothing for the military or troops. She is expected to flog the patriotism at every venue.
It is not enough that President Obama pops up at every sporting event in the nation. Now the first lady feels entitled, with military personnel as props, to intrude on other forms of entertaining (this time for the benefit of the Hollywood glitterati who so lavishly paid for her husband’s election). I’m sure the left will holler that once again conservatives are being grouchy and have it in for the Obamas. Seriously, if they really had their president’s interests at heart, they’d steer away from encouraging these celebrity appearances. It makes both the president and the first lady seem small and grasping.
Yep, GWB never attended any sports events when he was President.
Careful with the use of that word “entitled” Jen. And if we’re talking “small and grasping”, I don’t think it’s the President and First Lady that look that way. The Washington Post could find a much better columnist.
In this case, it was just downright weird.
Speaking of weird television appearances.
This the best I could do since it seems A.M.P.A.S. has snagged any copies from YouTube and the White House hasn’t put one out yet. Updated with a better one from Hollywood Reporter.
Until now, this has always been my favorite photo of the First Lady:
But the new official White House portrait of Michelle and her “mid-life crisis” bangs is such a winner that we may have a tie:
The photo was taken in the Green Room of the White House just over a week ago. At left is her official portrait taken during her husband’s first term in 2009.
Michelle Obama’s outer beauty, however, is not the only attractive thing about her. That goes hand in hand with what’s inside, how she thinks, how she expresses herself, what she does for others, her intelligence, her integrity, and her warmth. I haven’t been this enthusiastic about a First Lady since… well, I can’t remember when. It’s nice to have this much pride in someone who so clearly cares about so many causes and so many people.
And don’t get me started on Sasha and Malia:
First lady Michelle Obama was among the mourners at the funeral of a 15-year-old girl who was shot to death eight days after performing with her high school band at President Barack Obama’s inauguration.
As you know, a funeral was held for Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old victim of gun violence who was killed for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. She was a high school honor student and a member of the majorette squad that performed at President Obama’s inauguration. She was fatally shot about a mile from the president’s home.
Police are still searching for the suspected gang member who gunned her down.
The L.A. Times published an article about Hadiya’s funeral that brought me to tears, but it was something at the very end of the piece that caught my eye, something I hope a lot of people will now share widely:
[Damon] Stewart, Hadiya’s godfather, talked about how the teen had become an important symbol for people. He said he had read a Facebook post that said, “I’m not going to buy into the hype. What makes this girl so much better than the others?”
He had an answer: “She is important because all those other people who died are important. She is important because all of the families who were silent, she speaks for them. She is a representative of the people across the nation who have lost their lives.”
“I’m not going to buy into the hype.” Hype? Really? The story of yet another child with a promising future and an infectious smile who had her life cut short by a murderer’s bullet is “hype”?
What Hadiya’s godfather said was spot on: She speaks for others who died the same way. She was, and still is, important. And that’s no hype.
