What it’s like when Michelle
Obama shows up to the restaurant
where you’re dining

Washington Post, by Tom Sietsema

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/12/2014 9:15:16 AM

It’s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She has amazing arms. I saw this up close when she unfurled her bare right limb in front of me Thursday night, while the two of us were doing tapas at the jumping Barcelona on 14th Street NW. Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she moisturizes and clearly L’Oréal should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. “Ma’am, you rock,” I wanted to tell her, even though I was seated a table away from her party of eight, which included White House chef Sam Kass, and was

FTA: ´´As soon as I sat down, I spotted the reason for the abundant security. Even with her back to the crowd, the ­FLOTUS’s sleek coif, sleeveless dress (turquoise) and model posture gave away her identity.´´

Actually, it was the hairy back of the Sasquatch that gave her away. BTW Tom, you´re an idiot.

Could Tom be a more deluded writer? When he mentions the First Scold´s "model posture gave away her identity," we can see he´s three sheets to the wind, as the giant Mooch routinely galumphs all over the place when walking, which is not model posture. When seated at a table, I´ve seen countless pictures of her with her elbows on the table leaning forward to stuff her big mouth! It´s embarrassing to see, you immediately feel someone should tell her how terrible the optics are.

The real story:

"It’s true what they say about Michelle Obama. She can clear out a restaurant faster than anyone. I saw this up close when she unfurled her bear right limb in front of me Thursday night, while the two of us were at the jumping Barcelona on 14th Street NW. No “bear” is not a typo – I swear that woman has arms larger than a NFL lineman’s thigh.
Clearly the first lady works out, clearly she shaves her back daily as her 5 o’clock back shadow has in full bloom. Clearly Schick or Norelco should hire her as its pitchwoman after she leaves 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

I wanted to yell at her and possibly get the chance to wing a salt or pepper shaker at her head, even though I was seated a table away from her party of eight, which included White House chief ass - Valjar, and was separated by a table occupied by two Secret Service agents. (They passed the time with a spirited game of Russian roulette, pausing only to wail, “please Lord, take me now.”) Not a chance.

A food fan who has eaten around the world, once the First Linebacker showed up, it was slim pickings for anyone not wearing one of those unforgettable hair wigs. She was at Barcelona for what looked like a celebration, seated in the back of the Spanish restaurant’s private room. I believe it was to celebrate the running of the bulls as Mooch ordered two sides of beef. Appetizer? Entrée? When the Mooch eats there is no telling as sparks fly off the silverware and the noise rises to a deafening level. And you best be wearing a raincoat because the Mooch is a sloppy eater.

Part 2

"To be clear, our eyes never met. Throughout dinner, Mobama sat facing the rear wall, and not once during my 90 minutes in the restaurant did she turn around, because with an ass that size, it takes an Act of Congress to get it to change direction. She did fart numerous times in my direction, lifting her cheeks as she did so to get that perfect resonance off the wooden chair she demands when she eats out. Her attention was mostly on the sides of beef. Only when a server dropped something to her right did she turn in the direction of the crashing noise, and made a vicious swipe at that server – presumable to get some human flesh. The dark suits next to me, on the other hand, stopped chewing and fixed their gazes on the situation until they deduced the server was free and clear and they would not have to get the “jaws of life” to pry him from her grasp before it was too late."

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

Giant King fire burns 10 homes,

The King fire in Northern California grew this weekend, destroying at least 10 homes, as officials worried that changing weather conditions could fuel the massive blaze even more. National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Clapp said meteorologists were watching closely to see whether shifting weather patterns early this week would generate winds similar to those present last week when the fire spread quickly. The blaze in Eldorado National Forest has grown to encroach on the Tahoe National Forest, officials said. It grew to 82,018 acres and was 10% contained as of Sunday morning, and more than 5,200 firefighters are battling the

National press and talking heads of the Republican persuasion had a field day over the weekend after photos surfaced of a Democratic senator assisting a late-20s-something with a keg stand at a Louisiana State University tailgate party. The pictures show Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana, manning the spigot helm as an LSU fan is hoisted upside down above a beer keg ahead of LSU´s game Saturday against Mississippi State. A former Tiger herself, Landrieu reportedly made her rounds about her alma mater´s campus - including a visit to her old stomping grounds at the Delta Gamma sorority - before eventually finding

On his show Reliable Sources this morning, CNN host Brian Stelter defended Sarah Palin against media coverage of her family’s alleged “brawl” at a snowmobile party earlier this month. “Doesn’t Sarah Palin deserve the benefit of the doubt?” Stelter asked. He began the segment by airing a clip from Morning Joe in which host Joe Scarborough seemed to take a jab at what Stelter called Scarborough’s own network’s “saturation” of coverage over Gov. Chris Christie‘s “Bridgegate” scandal — or lack of. Stelter then took aim at the New York Daily News‘s coverage of the story, saying the newspaper did not

If it’s Sunday, it’s time to advance liberal hopes. NBC’s Meet the Press with Chuck Todd and ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos both opened by plugging segments which forwarded the hope liberal Democratic dreams are becoming reality. “Some Americans suddenly saying tax cutting has gone too far,” NBC host Chuck Todd announced, leading into a soundbite from a man in Kansas: “It’s been a train wreck.” Todd picked up: “Could Republicans now become the victims of a new anti anti-tax fever?” Over on This Week, ABC’s announcer trumpeted: “And midterm shake-up.

The U.S. is "gravely concerned" about the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons´s findings last week of systematic and repeated chlorine attacks in northern Syria, Secretary of State John Kerry said in a written statement Sunday. "The Assad regime must know that it will be held to account for such use in the international community," Kerry said, noting that the report raises "especially troubling concerns that continued chemical attacks on the Syrian people by the regime could occur." The OPCW released its report on Wednesday. While it does not assign responsibility, Kerry pointed to witness accounts of helicopters

A significant benefit of the Affordable Care Act is the opportunity to receive money-saving tax credits up front to cut the overall cost of health insurance, but now hundreds of thousands of consumers could owe back some of that money next April. Those affected took advance payments of the premium tax credit for health insurance. Some married couples could owe $600 or $1,500 or $2,500 or even more. It might feel like a raw deal for some who are already suffocating under the escalating costs of health insurance. "Health insurance is confusing enough, and now they´re adding the complexities of

On Meet the Press Sunday morn, host Chuck Todd found a new way to say the exact same thing political pundits have been saying daily for the past year: the 2014 midterms structurally favor Republicans thanks to the Senate seats at play. Or in Todd’s new red-state-blue-stateish formulation, it’s Starbucks Nation vs. Chick-Fil-A country. The chain-based heuristic refers to urban areas that vote Democratic versus ex-urban and rural areas that vote Republican. In 2012 the battleground states favored urban, Starbucks-pocked areas, hence Obama’s win; in the upcoming election, the toss-up states are more rural,

After declaring war on the Tea Party and often showing nothing but contempt for grassroots conservatives that powered Republicans to record gains in the 2010 midterm elections, Karl Rove whined that the GOP may not take back the Senate this year because of the lack of enthusiasm for his establishment-approved candidates.

WASHINGTON — Kurdish fighters battling ISIS desperately want more guns and armor, but they already have a secret weapon: The fanatics they’re fighting fear that if they get killed in combat by a woman, they won’t go to heaven. “They have many female battalions, as you know who fought very bravely,” Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and
