Whenever I have one of those moments where I want to rip someone’s throat out, I try to channel my inner Michelle and think WWMOD? She would be direct and to the point, possibly stern, but would still be classy and command respect and awe. Yeah, she’s the shit.
She brought back the vegetable garden in White House, made it super cool for power women to go sleeveless, and has the POTUS in the palm of her hand. To me, she is the perfect balance of working power woman and the best mom ever. The Huffington Post even has a page dedicated to her awesomeness.
So what has the first lady done this time to send me over the top? Showed off her dance moves, of course. Yes, you’ve seen her slow dance with her husband, and possibly live it up with grade schoolers on a recent trip to India. But you haven’t seen her break it down Beyonce-style and do the dougie.
I have nothing against former first ladies, but I can’t really imagine Laura, Hillary, or Barbara breaking it down quite like Michelle. And of course this has nothing to do with color, but everything to do with her fun, ‘I don’t give a hoot what people think of me’ personality. Hands down, Michelle Obama is bad ass.
