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!

    Mrs B. I can answer too, however my answers would echo Sweetpiece….a lot. Same places, well except the Christian Science monitor. And I LOVE Bill Mahar.
    Now to answer the "why": I think Obama has used great judgment during this campaign even during the Hillary days. His demeaner and intelligence on handling things that other parties have not had to endure make him "tested and ready to lead" in my book. I also agree with his policies, I think I and the people I care about will fair well under his administration.

    But most importantly I will not vote for McCain/Palin for a number of reasons. I honestly think McCain has psychological problems, what POW wouldn't need mental help after such and ordeal that is why I believe he is so comfortable with war. I think his wife also need psychological help, I have known many drug addicts in my day, and stealing drugs from your own charity is very concerning to me. And lastly, I believe McCain's choice of VP pick an obvious move to get Hilary supporters shows that he cared more about winning the election then fixing the country.
    Thanks for asking the question, I would be interested in reading your answer to your questions if you are still around.

    The level of racism (against white or black) is so appalling in America.
    Get over yourselves. You're making the US look like a joke of a nation. It's really quite immature.

    You dummies need to read some other political views.

  10. 210

    Thanks Mrs. B!

  11. 211

    She put Palin down by stating she was shot out of her living room. Sarah has been a political LEADER for YEARS. Mayor, and now the most popular governor EVER, Perez. She has more executive experience than Obama. The party bought her clothes and told her to wear them. She's a busy lady and just put on the wardrobe as instructed. If she was a man and a a democrat you would not give a damn. This is a sexist attack on Palin. Obama does not love your gay ass Perez but you will elect him and learn the hard way

    Re: Frogger – I do like black tea? Perhaps one could say I am addicted to it! With some delicious honey….yummm! I think I'll go make some now!
    See ya tweeker! I have a late night and I know you will be up!

  13. 213

    Hey Mrs. B,
    I forgot to mention the Washington Post, The New Republic, Men's Health, Women's Health, Prevention, and the LA Times! I especially love the photography in the LA Times. I love listening to radio as well and am hooked on NPR. Even though they aren't as liberal as I would like, it is very entertaining! Did I mention Air America, Randi Rhodes? Racheal Maddow? She is brilliant! Anyway, just thought I would let you know.

    You liberal fools! Obama spent over $250 million dollars alone on his 30 minute commercials the day before election! Yet you discuss Palin's clothing expenses. Why havent you asked how much it took to construct his greek temple?!

    By the way, that video by Sally Anthony is powerful! The other day I was begging people to watch it! It is on the right hand side of the page. The picture of Bush and McCain. I strongly urge everyone to see it! Even Frogger.

  33. 233

    yeah your right she is not Palin..she isn't running for V.P…

  34. MD! says – reply to this


    Why do we keep comparing Palin to Obama's wife? One is a VP candidate and one is just the candidate's wife. Of course she can't get clothes with campaign money, she isn't running!

  35. 235

    "As for that VP talk all the time, I'll tell you, I still can't answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day?"

    She's more like the regular gal than Sarah!
    If you believe that you're a bigger idiot than your head would otherwise indicate Perez.

    Six hours after the release of information by API on the planned broadcast by Fox News Network of the Michelle Obama tape, in accordance with an agreement that has been reached between API and Fox News Network, API was contacted by Obama’s Campaign Manager.
    Those who are close to the democratic presidential candidate must be desperate to win the elections no matter what, otherwise they would not have taken such bold step to contact API with an offer of a bribe in order to stop the airing of the tape.
    Obama’s campaign manager contacted API by telephone and email offering 3 million US dollars followed with a request to API to cancel the deal with Fox News Network.

    Yet you always end w/ I kid or I'm not a racist.

    EVERYBODY gets help to go to school and BARACK got scholarships and got accepted to his Ivy league school W/O affirmative action so yeah gloat on Palin who went through how many colleges? Puhlease! Her looks have gotten her further than her brains.

    Union members repeatedly tell all of us that they are lying to pollsters because the unions have been polling these people - and the unions will threaten people’s jobs if they don’t tow the union line. So, the people lie when asked whom they are supporting. But, the unions can’t control who they vote for on Election Day. And that’s when things are going to get interesting.

  40. 240

    I am Canadian so not caring a whole lot about the presidential election in the U.S. But unfortunately we are forced to listen to all the propaganda anyways.

    Does it not make sense that Sarah Palin would have much nicer, more costly clothes than Michelle Obama?!? Sarah is the next V.P. Michelle is just another person.

    Damn I can't wait for this dumb election to end.

    The Scene In Pennsylvania
    The same people who ran the board for us in the primary - who assured us daily that the polls the media was pushing were wrong in claiming Obama would beat Clinton in PA - tell us on a daily basis that McCain is going to win Pennsylvania. There’s a damn good chance this won’t even be close, if what people are seeing on the ground right now holds, and is indicative of the whole state.
    DEMOCRATS are staffing McCain offices across the state. DEMOCRATS are phone banking and canvassing for McCain. DEMOCRATS are raising large sums to fund this last week of campaigning.

    More Sarah Quotes !!!!
    "All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years." –

    So many of these comments spew hatred, and very few talk about actual facts. FACT: Michelle Obama said taht she and Barack have a policy of spending their own money on their clothes and that she finds great stuff online. CONGRATULATIONS. She is one of the elite that has the money to spend on her own clothes. Sarah Palin lives like most of us ordinary folks and doesn't have the thousands of dollars to spend on a massive wardrobe that is campain ready. Who paid for Michelle Obama's afternoon snack of Lobster and Caviar? Spread the Wealth - as long as it doesn't come from her pocket book.

    Re: LusciousLiz – Oh …pardon me, I lapsed off to sleep. That was L.A. as in….Lower Alabama. yee-haw. I am so impresse. Sweety, been through Brentwood - cultural vacuum and if i doubted it, you've underscored it.

    Re: MINXLIVES – Lol's!!! I really don't have a problem with her skin color….. I mean Palin gets called cunt, stupid, whore…. blah blah blah… Sexy Sarah,… So people can attack her looks, her family, what she wears, hang her by the throat in a front yard??…. the point is to treat everybody equally right?? What if Sarah had curly hair and I said that comment… is that racist, sexist???…. Let me be… I know what I am… I love to see how people react differently to similar comments that are thrown at the candidates…… and BTW I have to straighten my hair everyday cuz I have fucked up frizzy hair… Obviously I know what she has to go through….It's so funny bc you're the one making it about race… not me bitch!!… So deal with it!!!!.. :) Love ya!!

    No Bitch, that would be YOU. Yur argument if the reverse was tru of sarah blah blah blah is pure BS. The fact is CALL out people that say that nonsense. I don't make racist comments and the more I read yours the more IT does come across as racist. So again spare me the BS. If the argument was about Sarah's hair and you were comparing fine but it wsn't It was on clothing and the comparison was made so for you to addlib and throw in hair MAKES it racist so again spare me the nonsense. Your passive aggressiveness steams with BS. Keep it real.

  54. 254

    Re: MINXLIVES – Again…..Sorry you feel that way… & I repeat… you're the only one making my comment about race… !!! It wasn't intended that way… I don't need to explain myself any further… Obviously you feel differently and I can understand that perhaps you've been hurt or discriminated in the past and that's why you're blowingggg this wayyy out of proportion… I get it…
    Keep bringing the heat and keeping it real biatch… I guess that's what makes this blog interesting… NO BULSHITT!!! LOL'S! oh oh…Vote McCain/Palin 08'!!! Peace and Love…Love ya!!!

    No Worries, No need to apologize for your stupidity. As you can probably tell by now I have no respect for closet racists. Be upfront like state ziti. This is not the first I have exchanged an opinion w/ u on this bog and I don't rush to judgment when reading what people have to say. After reading several of your posts this pattern of backhanded compliments and the need to punctuate racist statements w/ " I kid" in a campaign loaded w/ racism, sexism, ageism is what is part of the problem. So go ahead and continue w/ the namecalling etc. I usually avoid that BS but you represent what I despise most in this country and BTW, I'm NOT black as most already on here know, I'm as "white" as they come sweetheart. ;)
