“The categories are Hope and Cynicism” - “I’ll take Cynicism Alec, for the win”
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 9-30-2014 | MOTUS

Oh dear! We really wished to keep this one “in the family” butt some blabbermouth had to go and spill the beans about what really went down the night the White House’s first, second and third lines of defense were breached. What next? Is somebody going to claim that “the Intelligence Community” didn’t really “miss the ISIS threat,” somebody else did that?

I sure hope it wasn’t Molsterman who broke rank and let the cat out of the bag, so to speak.

As far as I can tell, it’s much ado about nothing; it’s not like we’re talking about another Benghazi situation. I mean, there were no rocket launchers, no fires, nobody died; heck nobody important was even home at the time! So really, what difference, at this point, does it make? Right?

So let’s move on to something more important: Lady M’s frock for the annual Black Caucus Phoenix Awards Dinner last Saturday. It’s a Bibhu Mohapatra original design (like I had to tell you that) from the Fall 2014 collection.


It would have been a lovely dress without the striped flack jacket. Acknowledging their previous screw up, the Secret Service conceded that an extra line of defense might not be a bad idea.

Unfortunately the bullet proof vest seems to have cut a bit too tight, creating the dreaded “pitties” – you know – those pesky little arm pit titties.

It’s just a good thing Lady M has such toned guns (consider this your warning if you’re still drinking your morning coffee, I can’t afford to replace anymore keyboards):


Anyway, Big Guy was the keynote speaker at the dinner where he said, in part:

“Cynicism does not fix anything,” he said. “Cynicism is very popular in America sometimes. It’s propagated in the media. But cynicism didn’t put anybody on the moon. Cynicism didn’t pass the Voting Rights Act. Hope is what packed buses full of freedom riders. Hope is what led thousands of black folks and white folks to march from Selma to Montgomery.  Hope is what got John Lewis off his back after being beaten within an inch of his life, and chose to keep on going. Cynicism is a choice, but hope is a better choice.”

If you want to know why, read the rest of the article.

Au contraire: in the Age of Obama cynicism isn’t a choice, it’s a survival technique. (And by the way, cynicism is not “promoted in the media” it is promoted by the media.)

A pig in a designer dress is still a pig.

That dress is hideous. What a clod.
