The following exchange took place only moments ago in Harpy inboxes.
SarahMC: Anyone want to tear Bonnie Fuller a new one?
BeckySharper: My eyes just rolled so hard they are practically stuck to the roof of my skull.
PhDork: A candidate for a new “You Have Got to Be Fucking Kidding Me” tag.
SarahMC: Well she has nothing better to do now that dear hubby is president. She might as well have a baby – and cross your fingers for a boy because there’s too much estrogen in the white house right now lol amirite?!
sarah.of.a.lesser.god: OMG A BEHBEH WILL TOTES FIX TEH ECONOMY AND STABILIZE AFGHANISTAN!
PilgrimSoul: I personally can think of no industry more deserving of an economic boost than the uterus-police at celebrity weeklies, Bonnie Fuller. Too right.
sarah.of.a.lesser.god: SarahMC, Time has already bemoaned the unfortunate influx of estrogen. Hysterical headline: “White House Family Values: Where Are the Boys?”
BeckySharper: The only thing worse than that headline is actually reading the article. Jesus H. Christ in shorts.
PhDork: According to this Bonnie Fuller person (I don’t read a lot of HuffPo and don’t know who or what she is):
- American women are mindless consumer zombies who march in lockstep with celebrity bullshit;
- Michelle Obama as national brood-mare (literally! She compares a new baby to FUCKING SEABISCUIT!);
- Mr. Obama: important ’cause of that stimulus thingy;
- Mrs. Obama: important ’cause of all that fashion! And her looks! And OMG did she seem “a little thick” at the Inauguration?
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that is where my mouth falls open in disbelief and my brain explodes.
sarah.of.a.lesser.god: You know that Fuller and her ilk are hoping that the President will be giving his wife the stimulus package of sacred sperm and life.
PilgrimSoul: Whatever, Becky, if you believed in Jesus you would know that he is all about procreation for the motherland. God Bless American Women’s Uteri!
SarahMC: Women in the spotlight should have babies in order to entertain and preoccupy the masses in tough economic times. Forget the fact that she and Barack would actually have to raise said baby for the next 18+ years, even after the voyeuristic, celeb-obsessed idiots move on to the next “bump watch.”
sarah.of.a.lesser.god: Shit, just put ME in the spotlight and leave Michelle Obama’s uterus alone. I’ll make my baby dance for nickels.
