Be Warned

If your gal asks you if that dress makes her look fat, do NOT tell her "yes".

Because, according to the New York Times, that's racist:
Representative Jim Sensenbrenner, in a conversation overheard at Reagan National Airport in Washington, said of Michelle Obama: "She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself." He offered a lame apology, but as Mary C. Curtis put it on the Washington Post's new blog She the People: "Can you imagine how the incident would play out if an African American congressman made a crude remark about First Lady Laura Bush's body? It certainly would have taken more than an insincere apology to wash that sin away."

  1. I'd like to go on and take my stand on this issue:
    Michelle Obama has a fat ass. Fat. Big. Expansive. Fat fat fat.
    So does Khloe Kardashian. And so do I.
    There you go, Mary C. Curtis. Make some self-righteous stew out of all those rump roasts.

  3. "...wash that sin away"

    So it all comes back to Clinton again.

  4. The correct answer to "Does this [article of clothing]make my ass look fat is "Hold on, let me take a few steps back so I can get the whole thing in view."
