I'm waiting for the apologies from the right wingers to Michelle Obama. Because they love to smear and attack her on issues from her college thesis to apparently engineering forced eating of broccoli at gunpoint.

Seriously, I could give you 100 examples.

This one by a GOP Congressman about the size of her butt was particularly stupid and sexist.  

Then there was attacking her for going to Target.

How about how bitter and angry Michelle Obama is.

Or Rush attacking her for eating ribs.

Or Limbaugh defending NASCAR fans who booed her, using the word "uppity".

Or the racist response to the false rumor Obama had spent $50,000 on underwear. ("She's trying to make up for the fact that she's not a thin, beautiful white woman. Cut her a little slack. It can't be easy looking like a baboon in a dress.")

More examples below the squiggle.

Or depicting Michelle Obama as Marie Antoinette.


Or for appearing on iCarly on Nickelodeon!

Or the party of Nancy Reagan attacking Mrs. Obama for wearing borrowed jewelry.

Or when Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann attacked the FLOTUS for supporting a very small tax break to offset the cost of breast pumps, a necessity for working mothers of infants.

Which lead to a combination of smears attempting to portray Mrs. Obama's intent was to "raise your children at gunpoint."

No, we didn't hear a single Republican apologizing for any of that, but one single person makes a ham-fisted statement while trying to make a point about the Romneys not having the same economic struggles most Americans have, which the Obama campaign (and the President himself) immediately denounce, oh, the Democrats aren't playing fair.


What a bunch of freakin' crybabies.
 A Republican isn't happy until they're boo-hooing about being a victim.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
