Several of my readers have pointed out that Michelle Obama might not have been dressed quite appropriately for Tuesday’s posthumous Medal of Honor ceremony for U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Richard L. Etchberger, who was killed in Laos during the Vietnam War.
They appear to have seen her dress and foot apparel at the blog Michelle Obama’s Mirror, which seems to have “broken” the story.
The president wore a black suit. You can just hear him and Michelle over in the White House residence:
“OK, do the splashy green dress, but do you have to wear the pink shoes?”
“Oh, I AM wearing the pink slippers.”
“Darling, its like a funeral, maybe some other shoes would be – ”
“Get your brain around this. I’m wearing the pink slippers. I bought them for this outfit.”
“OK, well let’s go back to the green outfit . . . ”
“Let’s go back to I smack your face.”
“OK, forget it.”
