New first lady Michelle Obama is a young, stylish, beautiful and successful corporate attorney from humble south-side-of-Chicago beginnings. In other words, she’s just like ancient yankee matron aristocrat Barbara Bush.
That’s the startling conclusion of the NYT “Fashion & Style” section, which took a break from covering Paultards and Survivalists this week to favorably compare the wife of America’s first black to win a presidential nomination with the white-haired old crone who cackled in glee when the blacks were flooded out of New Orleans. Okay, so maybe there’s a slight, Spock-with-a-goatee reverse resemblance. [New York Times]
