Get The Look: Michelle Obama’s Awesome Blueish-Grey Nail Polish

And on a completely shallow note, Michelle Obama looked amazing in a Tracy Reese dress at last night’s Democratic National Convention — but it was her nail polish that caught my eye. Upon closer inspection — I couldn’t sleep, okay? — the polish appears to be a blue-ish grey color, possibly in tribute to the Democratic Party, but more likely just further proof that she’s naturally fierce in the style department. I’m not sure what brand/color she was wearing, but I found a few similar shades — check ‘em out, after the jump! Keep reading »

Did you watch the televised coverage of the first night of the Democratic National Convention? I did! Now, full disclosure, though I’m sure you guys already know this — I am far-left-leaning lady, and while I’m no fan of the two-party system, I’m obviously more inclined to agree with the Democratic Party’s platform. I’m a progressive — pro-choice, pro-marriage equality, pro-immigration, etc. — and my opinions on what’s said at the RNC and DNC reflect those beliefs. But politics aside… Keep reading »

More on the DNC first thing tomorrow, but I couldn’t resist posting this now. Night y’all!

michelle obama topless

Plenty of absurd things are “artsy,” like crafting Jesus on the cross out of elephant feces or giving birth inside an art gallery as a live action installation. But a drawing of Michelle Obama topless on the cover of Spain’s Magazine de Fuera de Serie is plain old tasteless. In my opinion, they have every right to depict her artistically, even in poor taste. But that doesn’t mean they should do it. Keep reading »

Cop Behind Alleged Michelle Obama Death Threat Still Actively Employed

Crazy scary news out of Washington, D.C. this morning. A cop who worked as a motorcycle escort for White House officials and other dignitaries is currently under investigation for allegedly being overheard making threatening comments toward Michelle Obama, say police officials.

The officer was allegedly discussing other threats to the Obamas with members of his unit and said he would shoot the First Lady … Then whipped out his cellphone to show other officers a picture of the gun he’d shoot her with! Completely insane! And it gets even more mind-boggling. Read more…

The First Couple Is So Damn Cute!

Allow me to go out on a limb and suggest that the Obamas have got to be the most in love couple ever to live in the White House. I mean, I know I wasn’t around for the vast majority of our country’s history, and there isn’t digital evidence of many prior presidents and their wives flirting, but still. Just watch this video of Barack and Michelle Obama telling the story of their first date. Politics aside, these two are adorbs. [HyperVocal]

Michelle Obama on "The View"
Watch Video

Michelle Obama kept it classy on “The View” this morning, as always. The First Lady gamely fielded questions about the president tucking her into bed at night and whether she would ever consider running for office. (Answer: hell no!) She also discussed the continued prevalence of racism in this country. But I was most interested in hearing her discuss how the Obamas raise their daughters and make sure Malia and Sasha are happy, even with all the craziness swirling around them. “The thing I always want my girls to know is their life is good either way,” she said. “They understand their world is secure no matter what. They’ve grown to understand home is wherever we are. … Dad is always going to be Dad.” Well said. [Mediaite]
