The ultimate cheapening

Even I am stunned—more than stunned—by this. Krissah Thomson writes in the Washington Post:

Is this what Michelle Obama looks like untethered to the pressure of a campaign? Is she free to follow her whims without worries about political backlash?

The first lady became the buzz of the weekend when she beamed into the Academy Awards from the White House to present the award for best picture with Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson. Attendees and viewers were flabbergasted at the satellite image of the elegantly dressed Obama, flanked by young service members in full regalia, opening the envelope to name Ben Affleck’s “Argo” the winner.

First, the President’s wife delivering the Academy Award for Best Picture; second, doing it from the White House; and third, doing it accompanied by armed service members. The lowering of the United States to the gaudiest level of pop culture is complete. The Obamas are saying that America is their toy to play with. This is what happens when you put in charge of the country blacks and leftists who are deeply hostile to it.
