Michelle Obama, A Profile In Courage
Michelle Obama is a truly inspirational person, courageous and honest. Things I find most inspiring about her include (a) when she was misquoted 24/7 by Right-Wing media pundits that "Never in my adult life have I been so proud of America"; (b) when her college thesis was taken out of context and trashed by the same lying pundits; (c) when she encouraged Barack to run for president despite the threats of assassination against him similar to those which caused Mrs. Colin Powell to convince her husband to stand down, with Michelle saying that "a black man can be shot and killed simply by going to the store to buy a pack of cigarettes". She also puts her family ahead of everything, another superb trait. Michelle is a brilliant, beautiful, articulate woman, and a true Profile in Courage. And, if you want an idea of the human slimeballs she has to contend with, just take a look at some of the ignorant, hate-filled postings on this Blog. St. Patrick killed all the snakes in Ireland. Judging by some of the other posts on this Blog, there are still many snakes infesting the USA awaiting St. Patrick's tender mercies to put them out of their misery.
