I need to stop focusing on Michelle Obama’s relationship with Astroturf Axelrod and her other crony Chicago ties.

I need to stop asking questions about her meddling in the firing of the Americorps inspector general.

No, I’ve got to learn to emulate the hard-hitting MSM and investigate the important issues raised by the First Lady.

Like her shorts.

No, really.

Her shorts:

By now, Michelle Obama has firmly established her sartorial right to bare arms. But baring thighs may be another matter.

Photographs of the first lady descending the steps of Air Force One in shorts have the media in a sweat. Some are saying Mrs. Obama— on her way to the Grand Canyon for a family vacation — may have revealed too much skin.

Mrs. Obama is no stranger to public scrutiny over her fashion decisions, including exposing her bare arms or wearing expensive sneakers to a soup kitchen. When Anya Strzemien, style editor at The Huffington Post, saw Obama’s shorts, she knew there would be interest.

“I thought the fact that she wore shorts was newsworthy because she’s the first first lady to wear shorts on Air Force One,” Strzemien said. “I was interested as a newsperson because it was a first. A lot of things the Obamas have done have been firsts.”

She posted a poll for readers to explain what they thought: Most were in favor of the outfit, but others thought the shorts were inappropriate or too short.

She was “interested as a newsperson.”

Reason number 10,997 I had to write Culture of Corruption!!
