Michelle Obama is the Anti-Sarah Palin

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionBarack ObamaSarah Palin


On Monday, Michelle Obama stopped in to see Jay Leno.

She was decked out in a lovely, yellow J.Crew ensemble that probably cost an eighth of one of Sarah Palin's fancy Saks Fifth Avenue jackets!

The hopeful first lady told the late night host that she and Barack have a policy of spending their own money on their clothes and that she finds great stuff online.

She's more like the regular gal than Sarah!

During a direct line of questioning from Leno on the subject, Miz Obama stepped away from criticizing Sarah Palin's $150,000 shopping spree.

She instead said that she's trying to be "empathetic."

"A V.P. pick, it's like being shot out of a cannon. All of a sudden you're at the center of attention, and you want to look good. You're living in your home, minding your business, and all of a sudden you're on the national stage and everyone's watching."

She's so diplomatic!

    i heart michelle, she has so much class and looks fab

    i just hate how palin seeks to appeal to everyone and will change her tune it a flash….just own up to shopping at Saks and Neimans and stop with the "i usually shop at consignment shops" when they call you out….so fake

  9. 9

    What the fuck is all this racist shit? You people need to grow up. Or get an education. Or both.

  10. 10


    WHAT A LADY!!!


  11. 11

    only one difference…she's not the one running for office.

  12. 12

    I love her. She was very good last night. I love that she didnt bad mouth sarah palin, of course we all know if the shoe was on the other foot the shit would have hit the fan

  13. 13

    she's got class…

    I'd rather have her family as my neighbors than that crackhead Palin with the pregnant teen and backassed barbeques…

    Got moose?

  14. 14

    …and despite a $150,000 clothing budget, Palin still looks like 10 pounds of shit in a 5-pound sack. You betcha: the poster-gal of trailer parks.

  15. 15

    She's so classy. Oh, State Ziti, don't be mad because that grey-haired old guy and the retarded beauty queen aren't going to win. So sad. Go back to your hole and eat your own shit.

  16. 16

    Re: State ziti – you sound like such a idiot isnt campaign money suppose to be spent on the campaign….sigh

  17. 17

    Frugal??? Have you seen their $$$ multi-million dollar home for 4 people??? Sure - frugal would be the word that comes to mind - NOT!
    Champagne and Caviar - oh so frugal! Neither candidate is middle class - Sarah Palin had the lowest income of all 4 candidates!

    She will be a wonderful First Lady and role model for us all.

    Go Obama

  19. 19

    Classy! I can't wait until she's the new first lady! Woohoo.

  20. 84058 says – reply to this


    You are so biased…

  21. 21

    She shops online and is therefore a "regular gal"? Besides, how do we know she's not lying?

  22. 22

    That's called CLASS.

    Betcha her daughters won't get knocked up at 16!

  23. 23

    Michelle Obama is so classy!

  24. 84058 says – reply to this


    Why don't you talk about her $400+ lunch for one at the Waldorf?

  27. maryc says – reply to this


    Total Class act, and very smart too. The kids are also cute. I will be nice to have a classy First Family.

    Vote early for Obama if you can

  28. 28

    How can you even compare a first lady with someone who is running for office?? Of COURSE Michelle's outfit costs less, and of course she's going to make sure of it after Palin has been getting criticized lately… this election is so pathetic. It's like The Hills with old people.

    Re: puhlease – neither is cindy mccain, but have you heard the cost of some of her outfits? and they aren't even flattering!!

  32. 32

    Re: State ziti – That's what he's supposed to spend the money on, you dumbass, not clothing. Stupid ginny.

  34. Dunya says – reply to this


    I can't believe how terrible people are. Both Michelle and Sara have to look good for the appreances they need to make. It is just rotten to read some of the come backs that have nothing to do with the issue. She clearly chose to take the high road on this issue. There is really nothing wrong with that.

  35. 35

    the racism on your website (and on most websites talking about Obama and his family) is a absolutely appalling.

  36. maryc says – reply to this


    To All the Racists,
    Go get some counseling and work on your problems. It 2008 in the USA. This type of stuff is no longer socially acceptable. You can overcome your fear. And you'll feel much better about yourself in the long run.

    Re: State ziti – Get help!

  39. 39

    the Obamas have shown more class and intelligence then the entire McCain-Palin disaster with their platform of hatin'.

    All hail the First Lady!

  40. 40

    That is bullshit. She isn't frugal.. she has been pictured in plenty of Narcisco Rodriguez and Moschino outfits!

  41. 41

    I love you Perez but we don't agree on politics.
    While I think she would be nice to talk to at a barbeque, I don't agree with her or her husband at all.
    Regarding Sarah Palin, yeah, no one should spend $150,000 on clothes in a few months, but she was not the one who made the decision to spend it. Most importantly, the McCain campaign didn't pay for it.

    If you want to get into money, what good has the $500,000,000 of the Obama campaign done for us?

  42. 42

    You obviously did not see the hotel receipt from a few weeks ago whe she spent over $400 on an afternoon snack of lobster and such…

  43. 43

    i still don't understand why you keep comparing michelle obama to sarah palin. palin isn't mccain's wife, and michelle obama isn't running for VP.

  44. 44

    Re: 1hottnmom – they earn enough to afford that house, so if anyone was to spend 150K on clothes, it should be the family able to normally afford it (thats why i don't even take issue with cindy mccain's costly outfits, it's what she's earned), not the one who spent twice what she makes in one year as a Gov. on clothes….lets also remember the 22K on makeup…..and who was the one being accused of acting like a celebrity?

  45. 45

    woot love her

  46. 46

    Re: mrs. puff – She's fucking lying. Her lips moved.

  47. MoonX says – reply to this


    Why did she appear on a chat show? Is she someone important?

    IF she does become First Lady… you can be sure that she will be the next target after Sarah Palin.

  48. 48

    perez you are an idiot. the fact that governor palin didn't have these expensive suits prior to the campaign just proves that she is a simple, average person. michelle and barack hussein live a lifestyle where they cannot relate to "joe six-pack."

  49. 49

    Re: maryc – I DO AGREE

  50. 50

    Ahhh she's so wonderful, so diplomatic. Soooo racist, possibly??? And while she's buying at J. Crew (not so cheap either), perhaps buy some eyebrow pencil to lower those half moons a notch?

  51. 51

    Re: State ziti – you dont' have to wait, the recession is already here ;)

    Michelle Obama would NEVER lie!

    hahaha shes got the nigguh please look….yeah she is still ghetto

  56. 56

    I cant wait for Obama to get elected and we have a classy, real family in the White House. Obama/Biden 08!

  57. 57

    I don't care if she wears chanel, she is butt-ugly and so god-damned ghetto! Michelle and her muslim husband are both anti-white racists, therefore I will be voting for McCain/Palin next Tuesday!!!

  58. 58

    It's not the clothing cost that ticks everyone off, it's the message about how we as Americans should be taking responsiblity for the mess we've gotten into with the economy and how we should start living within our means that is being delivered from someone living WAYY outside her means as a Gov…..a leader should LEAD BY EXAMPLE and she is not

  59. 59

    Re: maryc – Better tell that to Michelle.

    Michelle is way too classy to slam Palin. She's a true lady, the black Jackie O.

  64. 64

    That woman is nothing but class. She will be an awesome first lady!

  66. 66

    Jay's chin looks like it needs it's own zip code….is it getting bigger?

  67. 67

    of course j. crew….saks wouldn't let her in the door and if they did, security would be following the whole time!!!!

  68. 68

    Oh, and what about Michele spending $447 dollars on lunch? She so frugal - NOT!!

  69. 69

    I love this lady!! I have been to just about every political rally(republican and democratic) since the beginning of the year, and Michelle was far and away the most well spoken, genuine and classy person on the campaign trail.

  70. 70

    Re: nikkigurl – but cindy has millions of her own money…who gives a crap what she spends on stuff for herself

  71. 71

    She'd better be "empathetic"! Whatever–Michelle Obama spent over 450 bucks on an afternoon snack of lobster and caviar at Waldorf Astoria Hotel. If the liberal camp thinks the Obamas don't live like kings, they are blind.

  72. 72

    Re: State ziti – Your baby photo is SO cute!!!!!

  73. 73

    Re: maryc – Again with your racist bullshit. Here is a newsflash for you, bitch….you can dislike a black man, abhor is lack of experience, cringe at his radical views, even mock his hateful preachers and still not be a racist. Paint Obamamama purple and he would still suck. So put away the goddamn race card, bitch and enjoy a nice cup of shut the fuck up.

    Re: PunkyBrewstein – Another hater needing a big hug from beautiful loving Michelle!
    Blinded by the right you are!

  75. 75

    she needs some styling help…jcrew sucks! lol sweat piece let me hug some of that hate out of you :) like my new avatar:)

  76. 76

    Re: sweetpiece – UGH YOU AGAIN…YAWN!

  77. 77

    She's an amazing contrast to the hysterical squeakings of Palin, the out and out lies of the desperate hacks, and the racist rantings of their idiot stupid headed fanatically fascistic supporters, who must be so disgusting themselves that they cling hard to whatever they can to make themselves feel better than the bigoted meaningless sacks of puke that they are. It's admirable that both Michelle and her husband can stay so classy, despite all the lying filth spread about them by the truly anti-American jerks who blaspheme both the sacred texts and the US constitution that they say they uphold so much.

    First off, I don't like Sarah Palin. She bugs me in more ways than I can count. Having said that, in all fairness to her she has said that she shops at a consignment shop in her town. The clothes she's been wearing on the campaign trail are not hers and will be given to charity when she's finished with them. She had no input as to where the shopping for them was done. If anyone should be castigated for them it should be whoever the shopper was and whoever ok'd it, not Sarah personally. Now, if you want to start criticizing her on just about anything else, I'm there. To start with, I find her sarcastic, abrasive, un-sophisticated, and certainly not who I want representing this country in meetings with heads of state from other countries. Her down-home folksiness is completely inappropriate for the office of Vice President of the most powerful country in the world.

  85. 85

    I had to go to YouTube to watch the actual videos, cause I don't watch LENO'S LAME ass - EVER. (Oh how I wish JOHNNY CARSON was still alive to host "The Tonight Show".) But at any rate, I have a new-found respect for Michelle. I've seen her on "The View", but I wasn't all that impressed; partly because she stole my future husband, lol.

    Even when Leno tried to prompt badmouthing of Palin, Michelle didn't stoop to that level. She simply said what she felt about the issue and gave her honest opinion. I can't help but love this woman. She's so humble and down to earth even with all the media blitz regarding her husband and family.

    Re: alexlala – nobody is afraid of a black fag like you!

  87. 87

    Re: PunkyBrewstein – …how can McCain possibly lose considering the intellectual caliber of his supporters? Still, I'm voting Obama…all four of them.

    Put some color in the White house, y'all.

  88. 88

    Re: alexlala
    You're the racist. You vote Black and not White. Being anti-white is racism… just plain and simple.

  89. 89

    yeah, but she is so ugly…it hurts my eyes to look at her

  90. 90

    Re: alexlala – LOL put their eyes out with that Black snake, Ms Thing!


  91. 91

    This little comment section is hilarious. But then again, I guess I'll just go home and "bitch and whine." The president you rightys voted in the last TWO times has made us hated by so much of the world. Fabulous. Its great to see how people of other countries look down at Americans because of awesome W reign. Imagine how the world will view us if the two idiots are elected - I will be embarassed for us and I swear I will move to another country. Vote Obama!

  92. 92

    Re: Lick/Fondle/Touch my Teats – Yeah. While Cindy McCain's off hosing pain-pills from her own charity.

  93. 93

    Re: PunkyBrewstein – oh you believe i'm black because of the cover/pic. of course you do… shallow is as shallow does….

  94. 94

    Yeah real smart perez!!! compare that bitch to Palin…umm who is running for VP?? Not that bitch..so fuck yeah her clothing cost more..Why can't you idiots see through the bullshit??? Is America that fucking stupid??

  95. 95

    Re: topper – okay… so you're voting for McCain because he's not black? Right? Be honest….

  96. 96

    Re: Penelope Palin – Gee now I know why people think Americans are idiots…they look at comments like yours..You are ignorant…go to another fucking country and please do not procreate

  97. 97

    FAKE! She's so fake! She needs to talk to Palin's stylist..and stay away from JCREW as the First Lady of the US!!!

  98. 98

    Wow, you idiots supporting McCain are so misinformed, it's disgusting. All of you complaining about Michelle's $400.00 meal…maybe you should check out some ACTUAL news sites and you will find that this was proven a lie over and over again more than a week ago. She was never at the Waldorf and not even in the state at the time this rumor was going on…..I come here for gossip, not political news and this is EXACTLY why! Now stop the racist and ignorant smears and go read something educational! Obama/Biden!!!!!
