COMMENTS MADE TO AN ARTICLE BY ANNE PERKINS IN THE GUARDIAN
Sorry, Anne Perkins, but I regard Michelle Obama's behavior as precisely the opposite of having dragged the election out of the gutter.
When you go around making speeches full of accusations and name-calling on a subject about which you cannot even be in full command of the facts, there is nothing elevated in your behavior.
'It has shaken me to my core'
The insincerity of those words is toe-scrunchingly painful.
Michelle grew up not far from where I grew up on the south side of Chicago, within a stiff walk, and all I can say is that if she never heard such locker room words growing up, she was wearing ear plugs.
And we had, for eight years, the greatest sexual predator who ever served as president in American history, and he was the spouse of Michelle's chosen candidate, but I don't recall Michelle ever saying a word about him.
Response to another reader’s comment:
Her only achievement as First Lady was a "healthy” school-lunch program, a much discredited one.
But there were sure lots and lots of holidays in sunny places, all expenses paid.
