    to right wing radio at about 10 a.m. and the first thing I heard was Laura Ingraham whining in her high-pitched, shrill, nasal voice that Michelle Obama was a) insulting the personal characteristics of black obese children! How offensive! b) overlooking the fact that it is the CHOICE of black, obese children to be obese, because, after all, what we put into our mouths is a personal CHOICE,  and it's all about personal CHOICE (except for when a woman is pregnant and doesn't want to be but that is obviously different!), so let the black obese children eat what they want to eat, because it is their CHOICE! c) asking black adults to INTENSIFY! and that was surely a signal to the Black Panthers, and we certainly don't need more of THAT after what we heard in Oakland last week!
             I could not believe what I heard.
             I cannot believe someone could take Michelle Obama's speech and make it racist.
             But never under-estimate the hatred of the right-wing machine.

    Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says~~ "Oh Crap, She's up!"
