Anyone doubting the veracity of Washington rumours that Anna Wintour, the famously icy fashion queen of New York City, will soon become a high-profile American ambassador in Europe should look no further for substantiation than the archives of Vogue magazine. In March 2009, the magazine – ruled by Wintour as her personal fiefdom – devoted its cover and eight glossy pages inside to an interview with the new First Lady Michelle Obama alongside a fabulously glamorous set of photographs shot by legendary portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz. The ‘Michelle Obama Edition’ hit the newsstands with the glowing headline
Incompetence is the hallmark of this administration. If it is something that you can´t do, are not qualified to do, have no ability to do, then please apply because then you qualify. Affirmative action on steroids!
Why not? Moochelle needs a gal pal to go shopping and restaurant hops with on her upcoming monthly clothes horse trips to Paris. The White House chef will have to learn new dishes. Anna will feature new trendy burkas.

So Vogue puts Mooch on the cover, and now Wintour is going to be ambassador to France? Surely, the editor,of People Magazine and In Touch deserve something, they´ve put out an awful lot of fawning Obama articles.
Hate to be a killjoy, but Conde Nast owns Vogue, owns Vanity Fair, just in case you don´t want to support any of these creeps.
The leftist toadies and politically correct group go bonkers over our first black president and will continue to worship at their feet and put Michelle on that pedestal. They say that she is the black Jackie Kennedy, and next she will be our black Joan of Arc, they are all atwitter devising new ways to glorify a very ordinary black woman, who has no special talents. It is amusing to see how far they will go. All of us know that with all of her makeup, special shoots, glam clothes, and coddling, even the most unattractive person would look great. Michelle, you´ve come a long way, baby, from your America hating days. Enjoy it while you can, one day the truth about your husband will come out and you and yours will be shocked.
When you get time today, trot over to Drudge and look at the picture of Comrade Clinton. All she needs is a dozen or so heroic medals to pin on her chest to be a dead ringer for uncle Joe Stalin. Who dresses that woman, someone from the commune?
FTA: When she first appeared on the political stage, Michelle was dismissed as a slightly awkward, intellectual lawyer: an angrier, African-American version of the young Hillary Clinton. But when Vogue was finished with her, Michelle was recreated as a softly elegant global fashion icon and role model: a perfect Jackie to her husband’s JFK for a multi-racial age.
The rest of the article (and the pics of AW with her permanent, supposedly winsome chin-tilted-down pose) is big-time upchuck-time. Sometime watch some video of her striking that pose. Incredible.
But then POSE is what this pair of primitives in the WH are all about.
Maybe the real goal is to encourage Paris to get going on some fundamental fashion change to add slash booty ratings on their clothing. So for example a size 8 dress becomes a 8/16, a size 10 becomes a 10/20 and so on...
If the first lady we have been waiting for is a tall angry black woman who can´t be happy unless she is on an expensive vacation at the country´s expense, then yes, she is the one.
If I didn´t know her true nature,(mean & angry) I would be able to say honestly that that cover shot actually made her look nice for once. She is dressed for her age and position in life, not as a teen wannabe. I wonder what kind of fight they had to go through to get her to wear that dress.
Actuallment, je suis thinking this is a mahvelousment way to symbolize our current detente avec nous amies les froggies . We now have the vain, self aggrandizing ally betraying , perfidious de Gaulle lite nutty clone, la wintour. .. Mahvelous dahling.. Kiss kiss.
The first comment after the article says it better than I can, plus it´s all I can do to keep my breakfast down before heading out to church. I´m feeling the need to ask forgiveness for my thoughts about the Obamas.
Question: Did Michelle rub oil all over herself for that picture in the dress that looks like the top is a swimsuit?
Comment after the article:Wintour wants something for all the funding parties she headed. She´s about as qualified to be an ambassador as obama is to be president. With that in mind, anything is possible.

Great idea, if this woman can annoy the French like I think she can, more power to her. She should be confirmen on the first vote. I tried to learn to speak French but I could not bring myeslf to keep saying "I surrender" all of the time.
Ms Wintour will be you-know-what on wheels. Who would be foolish enough to work for the devil in those expensive shoes? Although keeping a journal to publish later after the reign ends could prove lucrative.
I didn´t know that she left school at 16. She´s a high school drop out! Someone in the article is quoted as saying that appointing her ambassador is like Caligula appointing his horse a senator. I think she should be appointed ambassador to France. Then the French will see that the country has an incompetent president with an incompetent foreign policy.
Poster #9... I seriously believe Hillary converted to Islam. There is no excuse for her looks... even her beloved LGBT care about their appearances. No... that hairdo & forehead are from hours privately enjoying her Burka Wear.
Does anyone think Big Moo doesn´t really know that the world laughs at her and particularly when it comes to the fashion icon baloney? Who in the world, and especially the nasty, awful, almost as repulsive as Big Moo Anna Wintour thinks this hog woman has style? It´s suspected that she harvests retread rubber from the sides of highways for her belts and that the oil of choice for her bared bowed-legs is Mazola. This woman is a national embarrassment and seeing at least 10" of thunder thigh in any of her hideous dresses is enough to cause one to lose lunch. She is classless and its showing more every day e.g., as in her upcoming 4 million vacation in Hawaii with her surly daughters, her entire grifter family, and Zippy.
In the wake of the Obama selfie firestorm from Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, a commonsense guide to taking selfies. I’m old enough to remember when Selfies at a Funeral was a thing. It was a Tumblr, to be precise, so buzzworthy and relevant that by November 13, it was featured on Good Morning America. The site still exists, but on December 10, 2013, it took its own life: “Obama Has Taken A Funeral Selfie,” reads the final post, “So Our Work Here Is Done.” How did we get here? It wasn’t quite a selfie that POTUS snapped, and it wasn’t exactly a
TALLAHASSEE —A nearly 6-foot-tall "Festivus" pole made from empty beer cans will be put up in the Florida Capitol this week as a not-so-subtle protest to the recent placement of a Christmas nativity scene. The mock monument will be erected most likely on Wednesday in the same first-floor rotunda as a nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ put up last week by the Florida Prayer Network. "I still chuckle, I literally can´t believe there will be a pile of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans in the state rotunda," said Chaz Stevens, a Deerfield Beach resident who applied to the
The federal health care exchange is incorrectly determining that some people are eligible for Medicaid when they clearly are not, leaving them with little chance to get the subsidized insurance they are entitled to as the Dec. 23 deadline for enrollment approaches. State and industry officials haven´t quantified the problem yet, but the National Association of State Medicaid Directors may release information next week after following up on reports from around the country, says Executive Director Matt Salo. Here´s what happens: When consumers applying for insurance put their income information into subsidy calculators on HealthCare.gov — the exchange handling insurance sales for
HAVANA — Elian Gonzalez, the young Cuban boy who survived a boat sinking and became a political football during the 2000 U.S. presidential campaign as the subject of an international custody fight, is on his first trip overseas since being reunited with his father. Cuban state-run media say Gonzalez is in Ecuador this week as part of a 200-strong delegation to the 23rd World Festival of Youth and Students, which runs through Friday. In a recent interview published on the official website Cubadebate, Gonzalez said living in Cuba afforded him more privacy than if he had stayed in the United
When a former hard-hitting news anchor’s daytime talk show suffers dangerously slipping ratings, what’s the next step? If it’s Katie Couric, the answer is to trade a history of responsible reporting for irresponsible scaremongering. In her segment last week on the HPV vaccine, Couric delivered a blow to both public health and her image. The question now is what Couric – if she’s willing – can do to repair the damage. It’s a sad turn of events for Couric, once known for drawing attention to public health issues such as colon cancer, which killed her husband. The former CBS anchor, soon
If a five-part opus in The New York Times by Andrea Elliott is to believed, we live in a hard-hearted city. But if you read closely, it suggests just the opposite. Begin with the family at the center of this story. The mother, father and eight kids aren’t really homeless at all. True, they live in housing meant for “homeless families.” But their 540-square-foot unit gives them a solid roof over their heads, in addition to city-provided meals and services. One city official tells us Elliott and the Times ignored many key facts about the family and that its situation is “atypical.” “New
President Barack Obama is flying to South Africa Monday morning to join the emotional extravaganza around the graveside of former president Nelson Mandela, leaving Vice President Joe Biden on his lonesome to attend meetings in the empty White House. The president will board U.S. Air Force One to jet around the world to Johannesburg, the capital of South Africa, while Joe stays behind to keep the lights on at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Obama is flying away from supposedly high-priority negotiations to prevent another budget shutdown of Uncle Sam’s federal government, and also from the top-priority effort to rebuild his crashed Obamacare program. He’s
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
