“It’s more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here and a strong woman and — you know? But that’s been an image that people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced, that I’m some angry black woman. … You know, I just try to be me. And my hope is that over time people get to know me. And they get to judge me for me.”

– First Lady Michelle Obama reacts to portrayals of her as an “angry black woman.” Michelle has been dogged by this stereotype from the beginning of her husband’s campaign when rumors abounded that she ranted about “whitey”; more recently, New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor’s new book, The Obamas, alleges Michelle sparred with her husband’s staff. It is sad in our culture that a woman — who just happens to be black, and may or may not have reasons to be angry (ahem, ahem) — gets dismissively painted with a wide brush as an “angry black woman,” as if she is just behaving the way stereotypes say she is expected her to behave. The new book by MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes and Black Women In America, is sadly quite timely. [Bossip

“Mrs. YoMama” Won’t Catch On As Nickname For First Lady, Politician Finds

“Mrs. YoMama” actually won’t be catching on as a new nickname for Michelle Obama, a Kansas politician has found after an awkward email forwarding incident. KS House Speaker Mike O’Neal forwarded an email to fellow Republicans which said, “I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing Mrs. YoMama a wonderful, long Hawaii Christmas vacation — at our expense or, course,” and depicted the First Lady next to the Grinch. Comparisons to a Dr. Seuss character? Oh, burn! You Kansans play rough! The pol has apologized for the vaguely racist forward, saying he didn’t actually read the body of the email he forwarded and just thought the picture of the Grinch and the First Lady was incisive social commentary he simply had to share with the world. (No, he didn’t really say that last part.) In any case, between this and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (W-WI), who was overheard in a D.C. airport saying Michelle Obama had a “large posterior,” I am sure she is having a very lovely Christmas vacation indeed. [Kansas.com]

Nickelodeon is not usually a channel we’d be caught watching unless there’s a “Ren & Stimpy” marathon on. We may just have to TiVo an episode of the kiddie program “iCarly” in the new year, though: a teaser for the 2012 season is out and First Lady Michelle Obama stops by the iCarly webshow to dance her socks off with Miranda Cosgrove and friends. Too cute! And if I’m not mistaken, that’s “Saturday Night Live”‘s Taran Killam playing a Secret Serviceman. Now pardon me while I find a nine-year-old who can tell me what channel Nickelodeon actually is. [YouTube] Keep reading »

“She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.”

This, my friends, is my holiday gift to you: Republican Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI) was overheard trash-talking First Lady Michelle Obama during a cell phone conversation in the D.C. airport. First of all, blasphemy. Michelle’s booty is fine and she could probably do pushups and cartwheels around this fool. Second of all, who talks trash about the First Lady in the friggin’ D.C. airport where someone who works in government/media is bound to hear you (and gleefully tell everyone)? I mean, when I talk smack about Amelia, I go down the street to do it. Keep reading »

Today President Barack Obama and FLOTUS Michelle visited with troops in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. After listening to a rousing introduction from the First Lady, President Obama noted that Michelle was both a remarkable first lady and also “cute.” Aw! He then advised the male soldiers that “Gentlemen, that’s your goal, to marry up. Punch above your weight.” [Mediaite]

Barack Obama Isn’t A Kardashians Fan

“…the Kardashians — when they watch that stuff — [Barack] doesn’t like that as much. I sort of feel like if we’re talking about it, and I’m more concerned with how they take it in — what did you learn when you watched that? And if they’re learning the right lessons, like, ‘That was crazy,’ then I’m, like, okay.”

Michelle Obama To Set Jumping Jack World Record

The Mass World Record
To set a world record, get lots of people to do one tiny thing. Read More »

Michelle Obama is our hero. She is using the get-lots-of-people-to-do-a-simple-thing strategy in order to set a Guinness World Record. More specifically, she is teaming up with National Geographic Kids to break the world record for the most people doing jumping jacks in a 24 hour period, beginning on October 11 at 3 p.m. and ending on October 12th at the same time. To break the record, they will need a minimum of 20,426 people to do a minute of jumping jacks—so they are recruiting groups of kids all over the world. Hundreds of kids in DC will even get to do their jumping jacks on the South Lawn of the White House. We bet the Secret Service is not too thrilled  – after all, that’s an awful lot of kids to frisk.

The First Lady was spotted on a bit of a shopping spree at Target this week. I honestly did not realize she could just waltz into Tar-jay like any ol’ bargain-seeker; does the Secret Service have to do a sweep of the store first? Also, I wonder if she’s got any Missoni in those bags… [Buzzfeed]
