After doing The Colbert Report earlier this summer (and looking resplendent in a aquamarine dress … and so resplendent, Colbert sang to her), Michelle Obama is strolling over to the set of The Daily Show Wednesday for a sit-down chit-chat with Jon Stewart. Yippie! I have a feeling Stewart won’t push up on Barack’s woman like that wily Colbert did, but I’m ready to squirm through another one of Stewart’s funny, but sometimes painful interviews. Remember, Michelle! Don’t try to be funny! That’s his job. He’ll only make you pay for it. Just “do you” and all will go magically.
From The New York Times:
Michelle Obama, the wife of Senator Barack Obama, the Democratic presidential nominee, will make her first appearance on Comedy Central’s satirical news program “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” on Wednesday, the cable channel said Monday. Mr. Obama has been a guest of Mr. Stewart on the show three times, most recently in April. Ms. Obama has granted few interviews in recent months, though she did sit down with Jill Biden, the wife of Mr. Obama’s running mate Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., for a joint interview with “Access Hollywood” last month. Cindy McCain, the wife of the Republican nominee, Senator John McCain, has yet to appear on “The Daily Show” or its late-night companion “The Colbert Report,” a Comedy Central spokesman said.
I love me some Jon Stewart. And someday, God willing, it’ll be me, him, a book I wrote and a TV audience and it will be awesome. Sigh. A girl can dream.
