Fox News' Michelle Obama Obsession Reaches A New Low.

No, your eyes do not deceive you. An allegedly reputable news organization actually put a story with that headline on their website. Boy, I wonder how the guy who had to write that headline is feeling about the thousands of dollars he wasted on loans for J School.

Since this is Fox, you know the intent here isn't to merely highlight the First Lady's culinary choices. Nope, the sole purpose of such a headline is to give the green light to the racist, ignorant morons who traffic the sites comment boards. And boy, did they ever go in on Michelle-O.

If you're feelin' kinda post-racial, you may wanna go take a gander.

We have a long way to go, people. A very long way.

Between this and Rush Limbaugh's equally deplorable tangent about Michelle-O having the nerve to actually eat a RIB[1] I can't help but wonder if there's some weird fetish thing going on here. People seem so overly obsessed with her physique, maybe they're actually attracted to her, and for whatever reason use these insults to cover admitting something that wouldn't be socially acceptable in their circles.

Cause sorry, but I don't look at these photos and see an unattractive woman. Not by a longshot.

Hmmm, so maybe there's something to that.

Question: What (if anything) will ever change the way that people who leave these sorts of comments view the world around them? Do those who critique Michelle-O's physique do so because they're secretly covering up their lust for her?

[1] Anyone else think that this obsession over ribs plays into stereotypes far better than a steak, or a burger? What a coincidence.
