Forget the Oscars. First lady Michelle Obama ought instead to set her eyes on the U.S. Supreme Court – as a justice, according to one very liberal columnist in the Washington Post.
“She ought to be under consideration for a seat on the Supreme Court, not recruited as a presenter in some Hollywood movie contest,” opined Courtland Milloy, a local columnist in the Post.
“Nothing wrong with telling kids to eat their peas or showing them how to Hula-Hoop,” he continued. “But after four years of focusing on the body, she’d do well to spend these next four on building strong minds. … Where is that intellectually gifted Princeton graduate, the Harvard-educated lawyer and mentor to the man who would become the first African American president of the United States?”
The time has come for the first lady to “raise her game,” Mr. Milloy added, and take on expanded roles in the second term.
Really? And she's doing such a great job telling us all what to eat ....
