Biggest Suckup of the Week

I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've read something and thought to myself, that has got to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever read in my life. Unfortunately, there is something even more silly right behind it. If I can keep up, I will make this a weekly post.

This week's is either laughable or vomit inducing. It is almost something you'd read in the Onion as pure satire. But, sadly, it is not. The author knows no shame. I would like to think Michelle herself, would find this embarrassing, but we've seen just how much the first family enjoys their press.

Anyway, without further adieu....this week's suckup award goes to Sally Quinn of the Washington Post for her essay, The Nation's Embracing, and Embraceable Arms.

Some choice quotes:

"Michelle Obama's arms, we determined, were transformational. Her arms are representative of a new kind of woman: young, strong, vigorous, intelligent, accomplished, sexual, powerful, embracing and, most of all, loving."
- Good Lord, have we missed anything else in the thesaurus?

"Today is Mother's Day. Today we should celebrate Michelle Obama's arms as the arms of a mother."
- Happy Michelle's Arms day, Mom!

"Nothing could be more empowering than to see a woman with all of the attributes of Michelle Obama embrace her children the way she does."
- No other mother can embrace her kids because they don't have Michelle's arms.

"Michelle Obama happens to be physically beautiful. She is tall, regal, elegant and statuesque, and her power has been enhanced by that attractiveness."
- Yeah, maybe to liberal suckups and fellow Wookies.
