Excited for Michelle Obama's speech!

Little known fact: Michelle Obama is one of the best Democratic speakers out there. It's clear that Barack Obama took some lessons from her. I think people are going to see that tonight.

I hope many people watch Michelle's speech tonight. For all of the talk of victimization by BOTH Hillary/Obama supporters over the primary season (RACISM! SEXISM!), it's African American women who face the double wammy racism/sexism. I hope she wins people over.

It was always inevitable that Michelle Obama would be vilified. That's the way the Republicans work: They vilify any strong woman. It's been a bit distressing to see people on the "Left" also attack her during the primary season, but I'm hoping that comes to an end today.

Here's the Delaware speech (largely identified as her best speech). I kind of call it "The Bar is Moving":

What? When have I bashed Obama? I love Obama. I...like...Hillary. I respect Hillary.

I hate PUMAs.

I didn't call you a PUMA, I called you a McTroll.

Ok. And I'm telling you that John McCain is a psychopathic maniac. He's mentally unstable. Not only that, but I eagerly await news of his (alleged) affairs in the 90s to hit.

I'm nervous and hopeful
for her. Next time my wife says I'm demanding, I'll say "yeah, but did I ever ask you to do THIS!?"

Re: holy shit!

If I've used sexist language to attack Hillary's nutty deadender supporters, then I sincerely apologize.

Actually, I don't think there's anyone

who I'm LESS excited to hear from, especially how she said blacks would "come to their senses" and vote for her husband, and how she twisted the "fairy tale" comment, and tearing Bill Clinton's eyes out. She is nothing but a mean angry woman. She doesn't even think when she speaks, like with the "proud" comment.

I must stop this whole thing! Why, for fifty-three years I've put up with it now. I must stop Christmas from coming... but how?

She's up soon

I wonder what goes through your head when you're about to do an important speech for your spouse, in front of 50 million people?

"I TOLD him to be a doctor, I TOLD him..."
