Rush Limbaugh Suggests The TSA Grope The Obama Daughters

Another week, another inappropriate Rush Limbaugh comment. Yesterday on his radio show, the conservative talk show host was discussing the hot topic of the day: TSA airport pat-downs. “Do you know when Obama went swimming with his daughter to show it was safe, during the oil spill?” He asked. “How about taking his daughter through [an airport] screening? How about Obama take [sic] his daughter to the airport and have a TSA grope her (emphasis mine), go through the exact routine with Obama’s daughter that everybody’s else’s daughter goes through, just to show it’s safe for everybody. Like he did in the Gulf with the oil spill.” Ew!

Oh, but it gets worse: Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, also weighed in on “Fox News” with creepy comments about pat-downs on the bodies of the women in the First Family… Keep reading »

Watch Out Vera Wang, Here Comes Jason Wu

Looks like Jason Wu is giving Vera Wang a run for her money. The Michelle Obama-preferred designer is entering the bridal market with a line of wedding dresses for Net-A-Porter. Says Wu: “The capsule collection includes wonderful options for a bride, but also has a relaxed attitude with pieces that can be worn to other occasions.” We’re loving the sketches, which look fun and young while staying classic. As for price, the dresses will retail from $795 to $4,000. Which, as far as wedding gowns go, isn’t exorbitant. [Fashion Foie Gras] Keep reading »

Carla Bruni Sells Out Michelle Obama

French first lady Carla Bruni was supposedly extremely unhappy with the unauthorized biography Carla: A Secret Life, which claimed that she had extensive plastic surgery and was a man eater who still flirts to make hubby Nicolas Sarkozy jealous. So she decided to participate in another biography, Carla and the Ambitious, by Michael Darmon and Yves Derai. But it seems to me that many of the claims in this new book are just as inflammatory. It claims that her husband would be happy to serve just one term—which should go over well with voters?—and similarly describes Carla as a “femme fatale.”

But perhaps the most interesting tidbit in the book? When she totally sells out Michelle Obama. Keep reading »

Michelle And Sasha Obama’s Trip To Spain Becomes A Big To-Do

Michelle and Sasha Obama arrived back from their trip to Spain yesterday afternoon, and the whole trip has turned into a media circus. A columnist from The New York Daily News called Michelle the “modern-day Marie Antoinette” for going on a “glitzy Spanish vacation” while the country is in a recession. A Washington Times editor seconded that emotion, saying, “Obamas live the high life while America suffers.” And Rush Limbaugh made the truly bizarre accusation that the media was ignoring the lavish trip as reparations for “our slave past.”

So what’s the deal? Keep reading »

Quotable: Michelle Obama Doesn’t Talk Weight With Her Girls

“We have conversations around health, food, and activity. I tell them sports are something I want them to engage in because it’s good for them. It’s good to practice teamwork, to understand what it means to suffer a loss, to win with grace. It has nothing to do with weight, it has everything to do with being a well-rounded person…I never talk about weight with my girls. I try not to even talk about my weight. Because you’re right, it is a sensitive issue. My girls are preteens and they’re seeing their bodies in a whole different way.”
