Michelle Obama is a babe. She’d be, unambiguously, the hottest First Lady ever.
She’s really creeping me right the hell out, though. Check out what she had to say in a recent speech at UCLA (quoted at National Review Online):
Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.
Got that, folks? Barack Obama is going to be on your sorry ass every minute. Did you know that the U.S. Constitution granted the executive branch the power to compel your interest? I had no idea.
For all I know, an Obama “regime” really would institute apathy hit squads, all set to toss you in the stocks should you be discovered in an insufficiently engaged and enthused state. After all, when it comes to federal power grabs, what would it take to really surprise you anymore?
But more likely, this is just poorly chosen rhetoric. Adjust it, please, folks. Free people also enjoy the freedom to not care.
(Even about the magical, unifying, self-rising, messianic, bring-balance-to-the-Force Barack Obama.)
