OK, I guess I'll shock P&C and Bubba and the rest of the crew:
So, the First Lady appears in Africa with a Pith helmet on, and gets lambasted for doing so. First of all, I doubt that she bought it to bring with her...it was probably a gift from Kenya. Second of all, it's a damned good choice of headwear in Africa. There's a reason white people wore them there for the last two centuries. Keeps you from burning up in the African sun, being fair-skinned. Third of all, it's a friggin HAT!
There also seems to be no coverage of her visit to the Cape Coast Castle in Ghana. That is about as depressing as visiting the Holocaust Museum in DC. There's a plaque there memorializing President Obama's visit during his term in office.
I still think that her husband is a big doofus, but why get on her case for every little thing? The toilet paper on the shoe thing for the President boarding Air Force One excepted....that WAS funny, if overblown
She should not be fair game as she's staying mostly above the fray. I think that she is doing her best. Just a personal opinion.
