Dear Mary C. Curtis of the WaPo

You decided to spew an article going after the overheard words of a Republican in a (so far) major mouthpiece of the Obama administration taking him to task.

I'd like to take the time to help you out here (just between us girls- you know) about how we in flyover country see your article.

Lets start out with your opening paragraph:
Can you imagine how the incident would play out if an African American congressman made a crude remark about First Lady Laura Bush’s body? It certainly would have taken more than an insincere apology to wash that sin away. That scenario never happened — hopefully because those congressmen were raised with a measure of common decency....
How do we know they didn't? We all know what the Black Caucus thinks about whitey- the Ofay, and how the MSM loves to cover up ...mistakes and "mis-statments' from their friends.

Then you go on about Rep. Sensenbrenners overheard statements about- basically her hypocrisy.

You then go on misstating the outcome of her 'satments of concern' about our food intake-
What is it about her simple message that gets some folks in such a tizzy? Michelle Obama isn’t advocating a diet of roots and berries, only moderation in a country suffering the effects of an obesity epidemic, with diabetes on the rise in young children. She is sharing the advice in a way that emphasizes healthy eating and exercise, rather than the deprivation diet of a photo-retouched supermodel.
You would think a message to take a little care with what we consume would be welcomed. But no, folks like Rush Limbaugh and Sensenbrenner prefer to inspect every item the Obamas put on their plates. Those two might better spend that time looking in the mirror, but self-awareness has never been part of their package. Of course, if the first lady were a size 0, they would be saying she encourages anorexia.
Yes, maybe- except that everything she looks at ends up having the manufacturers change their ENTIRE food chemistry to adopt her 'suggestions'.

How about you making the statement that she has a fat-@ss and finding a racial statement in it. As we all come to expect from a Liberal-
Not only is this disrespect crude, it also proves yet again that you can’t go wrong disrespecting a black woman in the United States of America, even if she lives in the White House – and in some constituencies, especially if she lives in the White House. Sensenbrenner’s nasty rant made me sick and sad because it brings to the surface the ugly history of how black women are viewed in America, stereotyped and dehumanized, our bodies everyone’s business except our own.'s bad to disrespect a black woman because it turns her into just an object?
Or only when she's not a conservative?

But, you're right, no-ne ever called Bush a monkee or his daughters drunken sluts- did they?
The personal criticism of the latest Democratic occupants of the White House started with emailed jokes showing the White House lawn as a watermelon patch and went downhill from there. If ever there was an off-limits rule for politicians’ families, critics have definitely invoked an Obama exception, ironic when the one thing even political foes should be able to praise is the illustration of “family values” they hold so dear on display at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – mom, dad, two children and grandmom.
And in the "Do we *really* want to go down that road is this peach_
Sensenbrenner had to know that what he said was inappropriate when he first let loose at his church – of all places – to a woman who had complimented the first lady. It’s frightening to witness animus so deep that a sitting congressman can’t stop himself from repeating insults in church. Maybe he knows he won’t suffer serious consequences and might even gain a few points from those as dumbfounded as he is that the Obamas reside in the White House.
Because I could waste A LOT of electrons in digging up what YOU people had to say in country and to our enemies about a sitting President about five years ago...

And finally we get to the whole "The Obamas "LOVE" the same military they were badmouthing some 40 months ago...
. First Lady Michelle Obama has taken support of military families as a signature cause. I wonder how long it will take critics to find something wrong with that.
Not long, because to most Americans in flyover country- OUR history doesn't start whenever the new meme comes out about what's the new aim point this week- and know what was said before they became first couple, and just how cynical and HYPOCRITICAL most Liberals are about facts.

Which is probably why most Liberals I've seen are so angry- cognitive dissonance.
