Oh, For Eff’s Sake, Michelle Obama Is Not A “Feminist’s Nightmare”

One of the most intriguing characters on “Scandal” is First Lady Mellie Grant. She’s not just a WASP sent from Central Casting, or a put-upon wife of a philanderer.

PC Nation Much? “Just Move” Stamps Are On Hold Because They Display “Unsafe Behavior”

Somebody call the PC Police: the Michelle Obama-inspired “Just Move!” stamp series, which encourages kids to lead more active lifestyles, has been put on hold because it depicts children participating in “unsafe activities.” You know, like skateboarding without kneepads and headstands without a helmet.

Michelle Obama: “Barack Is a Sex Symbol”

Michelle Obama was on “Entertainment Tonight” last night—so, needless to say, the interview covered such hard-hitting topics as her husband’s “swag” and her bangs, Mediaite reports.
