Just when Americans are getting angry about the government's increasing efforts to see them naked, Vogue magazine has decided that Michelle Obama deserves a place in their annual list of "best dressed" women.
And why not? In the words of one Vogue editor: "whether she is frolicking on the White House lawn in Converse or at an awards dinner in Michael Kors scarlet chiffon, she always looks elegant and appropriate to the occasion and to our modern times!"
Ooh - we just had a tingle go up our leg! Or maybe it was a TSA agent's hand...
Of course, for many Americans what is "appropriate for the occasion and to our modern times" is something comfortable to wear while in the unemployment line. Or perhaps a revealing open-backed hospital gown while waiting for Obamacare's alleged efficiencies and savings to kick in.
Still, as a symbol of our nation, it's important that our First Lady always look spectacular - and you just can't put a price on that. And if you try, Robert Gibbs will issue an official denial.
