Homeless with a Cell Phone

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 17:28

Apparently some conservatives are using this to bash Michelle Obama.

I say “apparently” because the only references that showed up in a quick web search were left-wing sites complaining about “conservatives criticizing Michelle”. But there may be some.

Fooey. This is a perfectly appropriate sort of thing for a First Lady to be doing, and you won’t catch me complaining about anybody making mushroom risotto. That’s food of the gods as far as I’m concerned.

As was cleverly pointed out in the L.A. Times a “homeless” person probably isn’t going to have a mobile phone (why do people still call them cell phones when cell phones are all but extinct?) because you sort of need a billing address.

What this picture tells me is that a) there are probably Michelle Obama sycophants willing to pretend to be “poor and homeless” just for some risotto (and I can’t say I entirely blame them) and that b) there really is no such thing as poverty in this country.

I don’t think the soup lines of the previous depression served mushroom risotto.
