How Michelle Obama is backing fashion
queen ´Ambassador´ Anna Wintour all
the way - to Paris, NOT London (despite
the fact she speaks little French)

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

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.

History´s Grossest Quid Quo Pro.

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.

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.

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.

There was word that Mooch would be the cover again this December. Didn´t happen. Maybe Wintour wasn´t so sure how the election would come out.

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.

The righteous indignation burns a little brighter on this side of the Atlantic than it does in Europe and beyond — the United States, per Fitzgerald, “having about it still that quality of the idea.” Forged in revolution, informed by soaring sentiment, and defined by acts of variously prudent dissidence, Americans of all sorts fancy themselves to be fighting the good fight.

WASHINGTON — The case of Farrah Fawcett’s missing portrait is getting a redo. The University of Texas is appealing a Los Angeles Superior Court jury verdict from December that an iconic portrait of the late actress by Andy Warhol belongs to her on-again off-again lover, actor Ryan O’Neal. Fawcett was 62 when she died of cancer in 2009 and she bequeathed all her artwork, including her own creations, to the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied art in the1960s. O’Neal, however, took the painting from her Wilshire Boulevard condo after she died and has maintained that it was always his _

President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of “births” — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing “births” as one of the top goals of Obama’s “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” The language on the CDC’s website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and “births” among minorities. Specifically, the CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

United States Senate candidate and state senator Joni Ernst has cited her National Guard duty to rebuff criticism for missing more than half of the votes in the Iowa Senate this year. In a WHO-TV interview posted on April 7, the Red Oak Republican acknowledged that National Guard service wasn’t the only reason she’s missed votes, but she said that only “a few of those votes were due to other activities.” However, a review by The Gazette shows very little overlap between Iowa Senate votes and her National Guard service.

Senate Democrats have been desperately trying to move the national conversation away from Obamacare to just about anything else before the midterm elections — “paycheck fairness,” the minimum wage, even the Koch brothers. But President Obama’s choice of Sylvia Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services thrusts Obamacare right back into the national spotlight — and with it Obama’s false promise that “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.” The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known

This week, President Obama has tried to rev up his base by flogging an obviously false statistic. It hasn’t gone as well as planned, partly because the media dropped its usual obsequiousness by questioning the assumptions of the claim that women make 77 cents for each dollar earned by men for the same work. Turns out that when you control for different career choices, different hours worked, different amounts of time on the job, the supposed pay gap all but evaporates. It also turns out that the White House has a significant pay gap — they claim it’s for the same reasons

For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
