What's Wrong With This Picture?

First Lady Michelle Obama is catching some well-deserved flak for sporting some seriously pricey sneakers made by the French design house Lanvin and costing more than $500, while volunteering at a Washington D.C. food bank with some congressional spouses.

The congressional spouse in the picture bagging groceries with the First Lady is a fellow Illinoisan -- Bob Creamer, husband of Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.).

Is it just me, or in these hard economic times, is this a case of not having any sensitivity at all — never mind empathy —or simply gross hypocrisy at a high level? Inquiring minds want to know...


  1. And I quote ... "Since the media couldn’t make any mud stick to Palin, it criticized her for absurd things — her wardrobe ..."

    You wrote that on this same blog, and you talk an awful lot about hypocrisy.

    Palin's wardrobe was in direct conflict with the claims she was making about herself – true hypocrisy.

  2. Get real.

    There's a fundamental difference between Palin's wardrobe and wearing a French designer's $500+ tennis shoes to work at a food bank. The insensitivity of Michelle Obama's actions is simply beyond comparison.
