Anyone doubting the veracity of Washington rumours that Anna Wintour, the famously icy fashion queen of New York City, will soon become a high-profile American ambassador in Europe should look no further for substantiation than the archives of Vogue magazine. In March 2009, the magazine – ruled by Wintour as her personal fiefdom – devoted its cover and eight glossy pages inside to an interview with the new First Lady Michelle Obama alongside a fabulously glamorous set of photographs shot by legendary portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz. The ‘Michelle Obama Edition’ hit the newsstands with the glowing headline
Incompetence is the hallmark of this administration. If it is something that you can´t do, are not qualified to do, have no ability to do, then please apply because then you qualify. Affirmative action on steroids!
Why not? Moochelle needs a gal pal to go shopping and restaurant hops with on her upcoming monthly clothes horse trips to Paris. The White House chef will have to learn new dishes. Anna will feature new trendy burkas.

So Vogue puts Mooch on the cover, and now Wintour is going to be ambassador to France? Surely, the editor,of People Magazine and In Touch deserve something, they´ve put out an awful lot of fawning Obama articles.
Hate to be a killjoy, but Conde Nast owns Vogue, owns Vanity Fair, just in case you don´t want to support any of these creeps.
The leftist toadies and politically correct group go bonkers over our first black president and will continue to worship at their feet and put Michelle on that pedestal. They say that she is the black Jackie Kennedy, and next she will be our black Joan of Arc, they are all atwitter devising new ways to glorify a very ordinary black woman, who has no special talents. It is amusing to see how far they will go. All of us know that with all of her makeup, special shoots, glam clothes, and coddling, even the most unattractive person would look great. Michelle, you´ve come a long way, baby, from your America hating days. Enjoy it while you can, one day the truth about your husband will come out and you and yours will be shocked.
When you get time today, trot over to Drudge and look at the picture of Comrade Clinton. All she needs is a dozen or so heroic medals to pin on her chest to be a dead ringer for uncle Joe Stalin. Who dresses that woman, someone from the commune?
FTA: When she first appeared on the political stage, Michelle was dismissed as a slightly awkward, intellectual lawyer: an angrier, African-American version of the young Hillary Clinton. But when Vogue was finished with her, Michelle was recreated as a softly elegant global fashion icon and role model: a perfect Jackie to her husband’s JFK for a multi-racial age.
The rest of the article (and the pics of AW with her permanent, supposedly winsome chin-tilted-down pose) is big-time upchuck-time. Sometime watch some video of her striking that pose. Incredible.
But then POSE is what this pair of primitives in the WH are all about.
Maybe the real goal is to encourage Paris to get going on some fundamental fashion change to add slash booty ratings on their clothing. So for example a size 8 dress becomes a 8/16, a size 10 becomes a 10/20 and so on...
If the first lady we have been waiting for is a tall angry black woman who can´t be happy unless she is on an expensive vacation at the country´s expense, then yes, she is the one.
If I didn´t know her true nature,(mean & angry) I would be able to say honestly that that cover shot actually made her look nice for once. She is dressed for her age and position in life, not as a teen wannabe. I wonder what kind of fight they had to go through to get her to wear that dress.
Actuallment, je suis thinking this is a mahvelousment way to symbolize our current detente avec nous amies les froggies . We now have the vain, self aggrandizing ally betraying , perfidious de Gaulle lite nutty clone, la wintour. .. Mahvelous dahling.. Kiss kiss.
The first comment after the article says it better than I can, plus it´s all I can do to keep my breakfast down before heading out to church. I´m feeling the need to ask forgiveness for my thoughts about the Obamas.
Question: Did Michelle rub oil all over herself for that picture in the dress that looks like the top is a swimsuit?
Comment after the article:Wintour wants something for all the funding parties she headed. She´s about as qualified to be an ambassador as obama is to be president. With that in mind, anything is possible.

Great idea, if this woman can annoy the French like I think she can, more power to her. She should be confirmen on the first vote. I tried to learn to speak French but I could not bring myeslf to keep saying "I surrender" all of the time.
Ms Wintour will be you-know-what on wheels. Who would be foolish enough to work for the devil in those expensive shoes? Although keeping a journal to publish later after the reign ends could prove lucrative.
I didn´t know that she left school at 16. She´s a high school drop out! Someone in the article is quoted as saying that appointing her ambassador is like Caligula appointing his horse a senator. I think she should be appointed ambassador to France. Then the French will see that the country has an incompetent president with an incompetent foreign policy.
Poster #9... I seriously believe Hillary converted to Islam. There is no excuse for her looks... even her beloved LGBT care about their appearances. No... that hairdo & forehead are from hours privately enjoying her Burka Wear.
Does anyone think Big Moo doesn´t really know that the world laughs at her and particularly when it comes to the fashion icon baloney? Who in the world, and especially the nasty, awful, almost as repulsive as Big Moo Anna Wintour thinks this hog woman has style? It´s suspected that she harvests retread rubber from the sides of highways for her belts and that the oil of choice for her bared bowed-legs is Mazola. This woman is a national embarrassment and seeing at least 10" of thunder thigh in any of her hideous dresses is enough to cause one to lose lunch. She is classless and its showing more every day e.g., as in her upcoming 4 million vacation in Hawaii with her surly daughters, her entire grifter family, and Zippy.
Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, said she was opposed to Detroit selling off its renowned museum art collection, which is valued at $1 billion to $2 billion, to help pay down the bankrupt city´s estimated $18 billion in debt. She said the collection should be kept since it would be a cultural boon to the city once it does recover. "Detroit can be a jewel (again) in that state. I would caution against selling the kind of assets that that art collection is," she told the Washington Examiner during a Wednesday morning breakfast with reporters hosted by
Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes appears to have stolen her family’s “favorite recipes” she posted on her campaign website, when commemorating Thanksgiving last week. The Democratic challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) displayed recipes for a “cranberry-pineapple salad” and a “sweet potato casserole,” both of which were “near-exact copies” of recipes online. The Hill reports: Kentucky Democratic Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes’s family recipes, posted on her website on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving holiday, appear to be lifted from other websites. One, for cranberry-pineapple salad, is a near-exact copy of a Kraft recipe for “Festive Cranberry-Pineapple Salad,” as posted to
The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960. But don’t expect anyone who pointed to last year’s hurricanes as “proof” of the need to act against global warming to apologize; the warmists don’t work that way. Warmist claims of a severe increase in hurricane activity go back to 2005 and Hurricane Katrina. The cover of Al Gore’s 2009 book, “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis,” even features a satellite image of the globe with four major hurricanes superimposed. Yet the evidence to the contrary was there all along. Back in 2005 I
The proper thing to do after inadvertently publishing a hoax is to apologize. These things happen, after all. Publishers are not omniscient and mistakes can be made. Apologize, seek forgiveness, and then take steps to prevent future mistakes. It’s simple, really. But — apparently — not simple enough for the Huffington Post. As I pointed out yesterday, HuffPo published an essay entitled “Why I Make Terrible Decisions, or, Poverty Thoughts” — an essay that purports to describe one woman’s experience with poverty. The essay went viral, and the response was so overwhelming that the author set up a gofundme page and raised
The largest government employee union in the country issued a call-to-arms to its 80,000 Facebook followers, encouraging them to leave negative Amazon.com reviews for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s new book, “Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge.” “Don’t waste a second reading it though,” reads a post from the Facebook page of the American Federation of State, City, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). “Let us save you some time by sending you right to the parts where he mocks public employees as lazy, overpaid, and corrupt here and here.” Walker’s book was released November 19.
There´s a relatively long tradition, in the field of data visualization, of tracking the way we swear. This makes sense. Not only is it fun to track, but cursing is also conveniently specific as a data set; you´ve got your f-bombs and your double hockey sticks and your bodily functions, and, factoring in their permutations, you´re good to go. Plus, you don´t need much sophisticated sentiment analysis to ensure that your data are accurate: An f-bomb is pretty much an f-bomb, regardless of the contextual subtleties. As a result of all this, we, the public, get treated to sweary heat
US authorities have launched an unusual mission to kill troublesome snakes in Guam - parachuting in 2,000 dead mice laced with deadly painkillers. The brown tree snakes have caused numerous problems at Andersen Air Base on the remote Pacific island, between Japan and Indonesia, one of the most strategically important US bases in the region. There are an estimated 2 million of the snakes on the island, thought to have arrived stowed in a cargo shipment in the mid-20th century. They often gnaw and wriggle their way into important electrical stations, causing power failures at the base. They also threaten
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
