Tyra Banks as Michelle Obama in Harper's Bazaar

Tyra Banks as Michelle Obama in Harper’s Bazaar (The Picture)

Here’s the picture of Tyra Banks posing as Michelle Obama in that Harper’s Bazaar photo spread. Tyra’s publicist said she was going to have fun with it. Umm, I personally couldn’t tell if she was Michelle Obama or any other chick at a VIP affair.

You know who the guy is supposed to be. But if someone blindly showed you this picture, your first thought wouldn’t be..  “it’s the Obamas!”

Together they barely look Presidential at all.

Maybe there are better, more convincing pictures, but with this to work with, I’m dropping it in Tyra’s sham file.

This helps gorgeous Tyra more than Obama, what’s she thinking? It just further points up Obama’s lightweight celebrity status, something he cannot afford when running for the heavyweight position of P.O.T.U.S. - and it also reminds us that most people would rather have Tyra as First Lady than Michelle.

So Tyra dressing up as Michelle Obama hurts Barack and Michelle? Really??? The only one that sees that is you.

It only goes to show that as soon as any positive image showing or displaying blacks in this country is a threat for whites…  People wake up everyone will have their chance to smile…  Its only a picture…  bur if we all believe ...then maybe we can create not HATE !...  I think the pic is great !!  A lot better than the magazine showing the Obamas as Islamic terrorist on the cover…

... The government isn’t tllnieg you what to eat unless you’re too useless to cook for yourself and rely on restaurants to feed you. What a lot of fuss over nothing.Thag, you might want to go read from Ann Althouse’s blog from last Monday. It discusses .Mark Bittman, who for years wrote “The Minimalist,” a useful and entertaining recipe column in the food section of The New York Times, is now an op-ed columnist for the paper. That’s too bad, because he was much better at the former job. In an essay that ran in the Sunday edition of the Times, Bittman gets excited about the “fun” and “inspiring” project of taxing Americans into better eating habits. Like Kelly Brownell, who runs the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University, Bittman wants to “tax things like soda, French fries, doughnuts and hyperprocessed snacks” while subsidizing “the purchase of staple foods like seasonal greens, vegetables, whole grains, dried legumes and fruit.”
