Pretty in Pink. And Blue and Purple.

I really thought Lady M and Big Guy would be a little more excited about this historic event: the ground breaking for the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.  


Maybe the Wons were surprised to see Laura Bush, at the ground breaking. After all, she’s not African. Or even Half-rican. And even though she is our last First Lady, she’s not FLOTUS any more, so it’s not really FAIR that Lady M had to share the stage.

On the other hand it was under George W’s watch that Congress finally authorized the creation and funding of the newest Smithsonian museum.

So maybe I’m misreading this body language.

Maybe the Wons were just still singing the Blues, from the night before.

Big Guy was asked to say a few inspirational words, and TOTUS was glad to oblige:

It should stand as proof that the most important things in life rarely come quickly or easily,” [ed. Say what? You don’t think Community Organizer to President of the United States in under a dozen years was quick enough?] Mr. Obama said of the $500 million museum under construction near 14th Street and Constitution Avenue Northwest on the National Mall. “It should remind us that although we have yet to reach the mountaintop, we cannot stop climbing.”

Which is an eloquent thought, of course. Butt I don’t get it: most people would consider becoming “leader of the free (for now)® world”  as the proverbial pinnacle. Butt that’s just the way BO is – humble.

Mr. Obama didn’t refer directly to his role as the nation’s first black president, but he personalized the moment by saying he wants his daughters, Sasha and Malia, to understand the lessons that the museum will provide when it opens in 2015.

Although I think they’ve already learned the most important lesson of all: even a community organizer can grow up to be president in this great land of ours.

I know you’re all curious about the lovely Peter Som frock worn under the house coat:

I know what you’re thinking, and I know she just came back from Asspen, butt it’s not one of those avalanche airbags you’ve been hearing about lately. You might remember it from last February at one of our “I Red heart the Military events hosted by MO and Dr. Jilly:


It’s nice to see Lady M still sportin’ the same look this year. Recycling during this ongoing economic depression recession blip is a good signal to send to the rest of the country:

mobo  gams3This isn’t exactly what I had in mind when I said “We all need some skin in the game.”

Butt there’s more big news too: Lady M is going to be the “featured attraction” in house parties organized around the country by Big Guy’s WTF 2012 reelection campaign. We’re trying to boost Big Guy’s support among women voters(?!?). I’m not sure why, women positively luv BO!!!!

Any way, Lady M is serving as honorary chairwoman of “Women who Red heartObama” and as part of her contractual 3 hours a day of sacrificin’ she’ll be delivering  "a message just for us about the progress we're making together and the work ahead in the months to come," according to our latest email blast. So if you want to host a house party and want Lady M to phone it in, just drop us an email and we’ll make sure she makes a call to “get us fired up."

Oh, and did I mention: “The house parties also follow the Obama administration's rule to provide women who work for religious hospitals and universities access to free contraception through their health insurance.”   I guess that means you’ll have to provide contraceptive coverage for anyone attending your house party.

And I’ve got another great idea for the house parties that I’m going to pass on to Jimmy Messina. I’m really excited about this: why don’t we just coordinate the “Women Red heartObama” parties with a Mary Kay cosmetics party? That way we could really slap some lipstick on that pig in order to bring home the bacon! I think I’ve got gold here!!!!

And in the process, someone might even win a brand new pink Cadillac from Big Guy’s personal GM franchise!

Here’s how the MK Cadillac is described:

The Mary Kay Cadillacs even have a special Mary Kay emblem discretely located on the lower side of the front fender, behind the wheel well. The whole thing has a certain element of understated class. 

Even the color.

Sure, it’s pink. But it’s a soft pink. A very feminine pink. Not feminine in the sense of gender. Feminine in the sense of someone who doesn’t feel guilty about liking herself and liking men almost as much.

I’m not sure what that last part means exactly: “Not feminine in the sense of gender. Feminine in the sense of someone who doesn’t feel guilty about liking herself” butt it sounds to me like its got Lady M’s name written all over it.

Butt I digress: back to the house parties. Wouldn’t it be fun to have one of Big Guy’s “Women  Red heartObama” house parties here?

It’s the former home of Mary Kay founder herself, and yes! It’s on the market again! And it’s still done up – inside and out - in a very soft feminine pink: “feminine in the sense of someone who doesn’t feel guilty about liking herself.”

Heck! Maybe we could even hold a party right here at the Big “Pink”!

We know Lady M loves pink. And if she needs a new job when she’s done sacrificin’ for the American people, I think Mary Kay Cosmetics would be a perfect fit.
