Washington Post Wingnut Jennifer Rubin: Why Was Michelle Obama at the Oscars?

Mon, Feb 25, 2013 at 4:53:06 pm

Come on, Washington Post, what are you doing? This latest propaganda blog post by Jennifer Rubin is just a disgrace: Why Was Michelle Obama at the Oscars?

Rubin's brain-dead right wing talking point of the day has a simple answer: because she was invited by the Academy to present the Best Picture award. There. Was that so hard?

Oh wait ... we're still angry?

It is not enough that President Obama pops up at every sporting event in the nation. Now the first lady feels entitled, with military personnel as props, to intrude on other forms of entertaining (this time for the benefit of the Hollywood glitterati who so lavishly paid for her husband's election). I'm sure the left will holler that once again conservatives are being grouchy and have it in for the Obamas. Seriously, if they really had their president's interests at heart, they'd steer away from encouraging these celebrity appearances. It makes both the president and the first lady seem small and grasping. In this case, it was just downright weird.

There's something weird here, all right -- the weird wingnut thought process that leads to seriously messed up sentences like these.

Get a life, Jennifer Rubin.
