WaPo: Racists don’t like Michelle Obama

The civilized Washington Post wades into the controversy now five years in the making. Just who does this black lady think she is, with her ass?

The latest public rant against Michelle Obama’s effort to promote low-calorie school lunches was recently caught on tape in Alabama — the usual protest against the federal government meddling in local business. And then it quickly found its way around to the first lady’s posterior.

“Fat butt Michelle Obama,” said Bob Grisham, a high school football coach who was surreptitiously recorded by one of his students. “Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.”

I guess this is what the antique media are good for. Dragging polite non-computer-owning society into a current “controversy.”

Grisham, who was suspended Monday, is neither the first nor the most high-profile person to feel moved to comment on the first lady’s physique. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has repeatedly called her Michelle “My Butt” Obama. And Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner, the Wisconsin Republican, issued an apology after he was caught commenting on her “large posterior.” (Grisham has also said he misspoke.)

So racism is back. That’s too bad. Doing what it does all over again. And all the First Lady wants is fat fuck country to give up their dreams of living like sweaty offensive linemen before dying in their forties. What a bitch.

Update: Althouse delves in with serious questions here. Who would talk about the First Lady’s ass? Very pathetic. Eventually Ann could really use a second post to flesh out her full criticism of the WaPo for featuring something so beneath Ann Althouse. Did you know that it was also called Michelle’s ‘posterior’ or ‘derriere’? It’s weird, hurry hie post number three.

Get rid of Black History Month and I’ll quit making fun of Michelle’s fat ass.

I’ve been fed up for some time with the force fed veneration of blacks.

Ditto for the veneration of gays.

Let the bastards learn to take a joke.

    Conservatives eat this racist shit up. It fits their bigoted conception of African-American women.

    It’s not a coincidence that the most despicable comments about Michelle Obama are made by the most despicable obese right-wingers. Racist Limbaugh has rountinuely insulted Michelle Obama about her weight and routinely refers to the FLOTUS as Moochelle Obama. Ho ho ho ho! Of course, all conservatives repeat Limbaugh’s insulting racist joke because they have no concept of humor or originality.

    Wisconsin Republican Jim Sensenbrenner was overheard speaking loudly into his cell phone at Reagan National Airport in December 2011.

    According to an eyewitness, he told a story of a woman who approached him at a church auction to make comments in support of First Lady Michelle Obama. Sensenbrenner responded that he believed Mrs. Obama to be a hypocrite in that “she lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself.”

    Of course, that Sensenbrenner is a grotesquerie, a shambling obese slob, puffy-faced, neck waddled, flabby assed, wide-waisted, prodigiously bellied (i.e a typical Republican) making this comment is not lost on his rabid supporters.

    I’d bet money Michelle Obama could outrun, outlift, outwork any of the fat ass republican bigots who’ve attacked her.

    Isn’t it strange that these same CON TALK RADIO vermin never once said a word about this: Laura Welsh aka Laura Bush rammin head-on into her senior high boyfriend’s tiny car, and his resulting DEATH? Yep, she was driving her parents huge land yacht, he was at a stop on a country cross roads, and she plowed right into him. He was alone, she had a friend in the car with her. Yep, it all got flushe down the memory hole. An ample butt ain’t got nothing on that!!

    Athletic girls and women often have large butts…look at all the figure skaters. It happened to me in my late teens when I was a very serious jock, and people (correction, girls) teased me about it. My mother said: “don’t worry. Real men like something to hang on to.” And so it proved. So I know who is upset about Michelle’s caboose.
    And just by the way, Laura Bush had a pretty substantial can her own self, and nobody said anything about that.

    Who cares about this issue? It is so unimportant compared to what she is trying to accomplish. I don’t think she has a big butt. For those that would make derogatory comments like this…idiots! Look at her arms and you will see a woman who is fit and healthy.
    So typical. Hate the woman so make comments about her form, size, hair, clothing, etc.

    We can probably attribute Mrs. Michelle Obama physique and fashion sensibilities to her having had to spend her formative years at Princeton and at Harvard Law School, and in spite of these unsavory influences, she has done quite well for herself.
