First Ladies Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni Sarkozy





Michelle Obama, our angry and bitter gracious and charming First Lady, is off to Europe to see and be seen on her first overseas trip with her husband Barack Obama. Obama is in Europe for the G20 Economic Summit and the 60th anniversary of NATO.

It seems the same media that helped get her husband elected, is absolutely swearing to the fact that Michelle Obama, along with Carla Bruni Sarkozy, are making the european papparazzi crazy with delicious anticipation of all the great photos they’re going to get of these two First Ladies.

As far as our First Lady, the burning questions are: what will Michelle do, who will she meet, what will she wear? When she meets the Queen will she be um, sleeveless? Personally, I think she has serious ‘guns’ — bigger then Barack’s I bet. And that money shot that simply all the papparazzi want? It’s when Michelle Obama meets Carla Bruni Sarkozy. I can hear all the camera shutters now can’t you? YAWN.

According to Michelle Obama’s press secretary, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, this trip is completely along ‘traditional first lady parameters’ and definately with a purpose.

So I guess that’s ‘code’ for Michelle will follow along with her husband at his events, hang out with the other spouses a couple of times or so — mostly for photo ops, and won’t give any interviews. That’s good. I’m also certain that Michelle will listen attentively to all of The One’s speeches, because she’s ‘proud now’ you know.

She will charm the locals and receive pretty little posey bouquets from adorable children. She will look as good as she possibly can at glittery dinners and she’ll visit first lady-type places such as an opera house, a cancer clinic, a girls’ school, a hospital, and of course the magnificent Strasbourg Cathedral. All along the way, all eyes will be on Michelle Obama and Carla Sarkozy. All of the counterparts from Britain, France, Germany, the Czech Republic and the other member nations will be positively ignored.

I’m good with all of that. Just don’t embarrass us Michelle.
