Michelle Obama: A man?

I’m not really interested in this story, but I haven’t put up anything Wild & Wacky lately. In the video below what is called “scientific proof” explains why President Obama (whom certain people claim is gay) appears so affectionate towards his wife.

But you have to admit that the First Lady does appear a bit masculine in certain photos, such as this one:

    The producers of this piece of crap video, have made me for the first time in my life, question the wisdom of freedom of speech. These are the kind of people who scoff at the intent of our laws, by doing things like yelling, “CROWDED THEATRE!” in the middle of what is clearly a run-of-the-mill residential fire.

    so, you couldn’t find something wacky???

    This is just pitiful, you right wing nutters……….. but then I wouldn’t actually have a problem with a gay man as President, if he were open about it. As it is,the President is just happily married – and that is likely to be good for his job performance.

    At least the loons’ misogyny is a foreshadowing of what we’re going to see when Hillary runs/wins in 2016.
    (Especially as misogyny isn’t as taboo as racism, and calling women “whores” is much more acceptable in many circles than calling blacks the n-word.)

    That’s not masculine, it’s an athletic build and there is nothing wrong with that. Lots of women have an athletic build. http://rtv.org/resources/youth-corner/e-fit/body-types/

    I’m betting Doc was being sarcastic here when he referred to that magazine cover as making Michelle appear “masculine”! Speaking as a male who has been acutely if not tragically aware of female attraction all of his post-puberty life, she does not appear at all masculine to me. In fact, I don’t recall any of the men I have had to look at over the years, looking anything like the way she is shaped!

    Her degree of muscularity is healthy-looking, and does not suggest the steroid fueled excesses of both sexes that we sometimes see in the news, or I imagine increasingly at carnival side-shows as an enlightened public shows less interest in the old-school “freak shows”.

    bgansel, I guess you should have your irony-detector adjusted.

    I admit that reading BR and Orly´s can wear it out excessively. Not intended irony ruins up even the best irony-detectors available today.

    Once broken, they can´t even distinguish sarcasm from irony any more.

    Here (in France) and in the UK, the state does not censor, but there are laws about slander, invasion of privacy, hate speech, etc, etc. so the targets of such vile filth can go to court and exact serious retribution from those offenders. And I’m all for it.

    I have to say I have never seen this amount of disrespect ever given to a President before. They have dragged his dead Parents through the mud. They have demeaned his Grandparents. They have vilified his extended Family. And now they attack the First Lady with ignorance and vitriol not ever extended to a First Lady before.

    Do these people realize they are nothing more than @ssholes and morons? .Pardon my language but this is going too far.

    And they will defend their hatred by saying we are just asking questions. The questions have been answered there is nothing more STOP WITH THE IGNORANCE. GET A LIFE.

    If this doesn’t prove once and for all that the right is nothing but racist pigs who have no morals just spew that God is on their side then what will?

    The Nastiest Campaign in US History

    Negative campaigning in America was sired by two lifelong friends, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Back in 1776, the dynamic duo combined powers to help claim America’s independence, and they had nothing but love and respect for one another. But by 1800, party politics had so distanced the pair that, for the first and last time in U.S. history, a president found himself running against his vice president.

    Despite their bruising campaign, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams became friends again.

    Things got ugly fast. Jefferson’s camp accused President Adams of having a “hideous hermaphroditical character, which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.”

    In return, Adams’ men called Vice President Jefferson “a mean-spirited, low-lived fellow, the son of a half-breed Indian squaw, sired by a Virginia mulatto father.”

    As the slurs piled on, Adams was labeled a fool, a hypocrite, a criminal, and a tyrant, while Jefferson was branded a weakling, an atheist, a libertine, and a coward.

    Even Martha Washington succumbed to the propaganda, telling a clergyman that Jefferson was “one of the most detestable of mankind.”

    Jefferson hires a hatchet man

    Back then, presidential candidates didn’t actively campaign. In fact, Adams and Jefferson spent much of the election season at their respective homes in Massachusetts and Virginia.

    But the key difference between the two politicians was that Jefferson hired a hatchet man named James Callendar to do his smearing for him. Adams, on the other hand, considered himself above such tactics. To Jefferson’s credit, Callendar proved incredibly effective, convincing many Americans that Adams desperately wanted to attack France. Although the claim was completely untrue, voters bought it, and Jefferson stole the election.

    Jefferson paid a price for his dirty campaign tactics, though. Callendar served jail time for the slander he wrote about Adams, and when he emerged from prison in 1801, he felt Jefferson still owed him.

    After Jefferson did little to appease him, Callendar broke a story in 1802 that had only been a rumor until then — that the President was having an affair with one of his slaves, Sally Hemings. In a series of articles, Callendar claimed that Jefferson had lived with Hemings in France and that she had given birth to five of his children.

    The story plagued Jefferson for the rest of his career. And although generations of historians shrugged off the story as part of Callendar’s propaganda, DNA testing in 1998 showed a link between Hemings’ descendents and the Jefferson family.

    Just as truth persists, however, so does friendship. Twelve years after the vicious election of 1800, Adams and Jefferson began writing letters to each other and became friends again. They remained pen pals for the rest of their lives and passed away on the same day, July 4, 1826. It was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

    So, for some time now birthers have been claiming that Barack Obama is an AIDS infected gay man and meth addict who hangs out in steam rooms in Chicago. But it’s hard to reconcile this belief against being married to a fit, attractive and intelligent woman with whom you have two beautiful children – a perfect all-American family.

    So, what’s a birther to do? Of course – imagine Michelle is a man! Now the pieces fit together into a perfect self-reinforcing meme into which facts and logic can never hope to intrude.

    These birther people are just disgusting. Human scum for which the gene pool would be better off without. Birther-Report cultivates these xxxholes and its site owner should be publically exposed. Time to force him out of the closet along with the other anonymous contributors there.

    there’s also an certain element of petty payback involved in rightwing attacks, since so many of their political leaders fail to withstand public scrutiny (bush, palin, ryan, bachmann, etc etc) — the result, in their minds, of nonstop and vicious lies from liberals. so wingnuts feel justified in savaging their opponents by any smear necessary.

    Not even close to the worst.

    Rachel Jackson was treated abysmally. She was called an adulteress and newspaper editorials said she should never be allowed to enter the White House if her husband won. John Quincy Adams’ supporters called her a bigamist and made it an active part of Adams’ campaign.

    Mary Todd Lincoln was called treasonous in newspapers because some of her family were Confederates. She was accused of supplying medicine to the Confederacy. She was trashed mercilessly after her husband was assassinated, accused of being selfish about his burial. President Johnson publicly refused to call on her after he assumed office, and was accused of stealing from the White House when she left after the assassination.

    I could go on, but you get the picture. Instead of being subject to strange theories by marginalized nuts, the families of presidents in the past were excoriated in public by the mainstream media and politicians of the day.

    Political commentary and campaign ads of the past were much nastier in the past, too.

I too have wide shoulders. I too am tall (5’11”). I wear loose fitting slacks. I have an Adam’s Apple. I must be a man. Why didn’t someone tell me? Now I have to tell my 5 children that they were all adopted and I must have had phantom pregnancies.
