Blowhard of the Day

Meet Tammy Bruce. Bruce is a national radio personality who claims to have been a classic liberal until, I suppose she saw the light, and became what she calls an independent conservative.

If you want my opinion, Bruce realized she could make more money being a gay, feminist screeching conservative nonsense than she could be as a gay, feminist screaming liberal nonsense.

Anyway, why is she the Blowhard of the Day? It's because of this comment she made while guest hosting Laura Ingram's show. She called First Lady Michelle Obama "trash:"

Discussing the first lady's visit to a Washington D.C. classroom last week,
Bruce incredulously recalled Obama's story about wanting to get A's in school
and called out her use of a "weird, fake accent."

"That's what he's married to," Bruce said. "...You know what we've got?
We've got trash in the White House. Trash is a thing that is colorblind, it can
cross all eco-socionomic...categories. You can work on Wall Street, or you can
work at the Wal-Mart. Trash, are people who use other people to get things, who
patronize others, who consider you bitter and clingy..."

Exactly what sparked this vitriol? Here's the First Lady's story that pissed Bruce off:

As a kid growing up on the south side of Chicago, Michelle Obama remembers
being ridiculed for trying to be educated and get good grades.

"I wanted an 'A.' I wanted to be smart. I wanted to be the person who
had the right answer. And I didn't care if it was cool -- 'cause I remember
there were kids around my neighborhood who would say 'ooh -- you talk funny. you
talk -- like a white girl.' I heard that growing up my whole life."

Bruce is obviously either a) crazy; or, b) racist. There is also the distinct possibility she is both. Or just a whore, who will say anything to up her ratings.

Then again, Bruce may just hate Michelle Obama because she prematurely ended Tammy's public love affair of swooning over Cindy McCain. Uh...not for nothing, but really? Cindy McWood is your idea of a babe? How would you know if you were ever pleasing her, Tammy? When her facial muscles ruptured under the strain of "ohhhing" plus the botox?

Maybe Bruce went right because Rachel Maddow already got the lesbian/liberal niche cornered already..

Trash? When's the last time you saw the Obama's at WalMart, or talking about how great Miley Cyrus is???

I have no idea who Tammy Bruce is, but I have to say that her comments make no sense to me. I'm no fan of the Obamas but this is just a completely inappropriate and baseless thing to say.
