If you didn’t … watch now!
First on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart:
One, Michelle Obama watches “The Dick Van Dyke Show?” And what oldie but goodie network does that still come on? Two, Stewart actually went pretty easy on Michelle, delicate even. He must really like her (or respect her position). I haven’t seen him be that ginger with a guest in a long time. And he really hit on the whole “running for first lady” aspect in the campaign and got in some good jokes. Like poking fun that Michelle could vote for McCain if her husband doesn’t present a healthcare plan she doesn’t like. But this was more like a casual conversation than an interview. I think her interaction with Stephen Colbert was funnier because he went there, and actually sort of, comedically hit on her. Then sang to her.
See, watch the old Colbert Report interview and notice the squirmy difference.
Still respectful, but bizarrely funny. Either way, Michelle looked smashing in both interviews and continued to demonstrate why people are interested in her. I wonder when Cindy McCain or Todd “First Dude” Palin is going to hit the talk show circuit?
Oh, that’s right. NEVER. I’ve never seen people in a campaign FOR PRESIDENT, mind you, so camera askance. I doubt either Colbert or Stewart would be testy with Cindy or the First Dude. As for Sarah Punky Brewster and Johnny Mac McCain, they should stay the hell away. They would get chopped down like wood.
Then on Larry King Live on CNN:
Fashion opinion? The suit worn on The Daily Show was very similar to one I’ve seen her wear on the stump (only it was pants, not a skirt). It was a nice, crisp suit, conservative, with lovely white pearls adorning her neck, but not as incredibly hot as the outfit she wore on Colbert. She looked fierce during that interview, albeit a tad nervous. And she was a little nervous on Stewart’s show, but you never know where a comic is going. It’s understandable to be a little leery. The outfit on Larry King was better because that woman owns the color purple more than Alice Walker. And I loved the pin. Fierce, I tell you. The woman is fierce.
