Michelle Obama's 'Right to Bare Arms' Causes Uproar. WTF?
The Theater of Your Mind Dark Tee
The latest arms controversy embroiling the White House has nothing to do with the Second Amendment. Instead, it's sprung from criticism about Michelle Obama showing off her toned triceps and biceps in her first official photo as first lady.
Some suggest that this is a sexist grump by Old White Men who would prefer Michelle to be seen in a Hijab. But I think it's a fear of a beltway arms race. A pasty white flabby arms race.
But you know, folks, do what she does. Wear something that shows off your best features.
Hm. I wonder what flatters conscience and intelligence?
Man, that would be a niche product, on the hill.
