And, yes ~ something with MASSIVE KUDOS for Michelle Obama REALLY did just come out of my computer.

She met the Saudis with her gum-chewing, bow-prone husband yesterday…IN PANTS AND UNCOVERED. About frickin’ damn time SOME AMERICAN woman stood as unswathed instead of looking (as Ebola put it) like “a Sherpa heading upmountain”.

For the first time in my life, I’m actually PROUD of our First Lady.
