Schlussel calls Michelle Obama "the new pimp for Obamacare ... [Hillarycare] deja vu with a bigger booty"

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In a June 23 post on her blog, conservative pundit Debbie Schlussel wrote that Michelle Obama is "the new pimp for Obamacare. And it has echoes--very, very scary echoes!--of Hillarycare. It's like deja vu with a bigger booty. Well, since we're comparing with Mrs. Clinton, maybe even that's the same, too." From her post:

I don't know about you, but when I entered the polling booth on Election Day, back in November of last year, Michelle Obama's name wasn't anywhere on my ballot. No mention of her or of Michelle LaVaughn Robinson or of Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Hussein Obama Idi Amin Dada.

But, for some reason, this First Lady is now a policymaker and spokeschick for a number of Obama causes. First, she addressed Department of Homeland Security employees and snubbed ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Then, she led cheers for Obama Supreme Court nominee Justice J-Lo a/k/a Sonia From the Block a/k/a So-So a/k/a Sonia Sotmayor.

Now, she's the new pimp for Obamacare. And it has echoes--very, very scary echoes!--of Hillarycare. It's like deja vu with a bigger booty. Well, since we're comparing with Mrs. Clinton, maybe even that's the same, too.

"My hope is that if I play a role in sort of ringing the bell of prevention and wellness and exercise."

You can best do that by telling your husband to stuff it . . . his absurd, socialist medical plan.

Whatever happened to the good old days . . . when First Ladies knew their place and stuck to reading books to children and visiting libraries and hospitals?

That was a whole lot preferable to unelected spouses who don hijabs for the Islamic world (Mrs. Bush) and pimp socialized medicine (Mrs. Obama).

Memo to the chicks of the White House: You weren't on the ballot. Stay out of policy and stick to the garden, china, and draperies.
