The ‘mother of all sycophants,’ DWS, wants you to wish Michelle Obama a Happy Mother’s Day.
The Democratic personality cult around the Obamas never ceases to amaze.
During the election, the party stretched the bounds of taste with a fundraising campaign that encouraged engaged couples (straight and otherwise) to add a donation to the Obama campaign to their gift registry.
And remember the November effort that suggested Obama supporters ruin Thanksgiving trips home by deliberately bringing up politics with conservative relatives?
Last year, the Democrats at least had the excuse of a presidential campaign to pay for when they solicited Mother’s Day wishes – and money — for the first lady.
Of course, money’s ultimately behind Thursday’s email blast from Florida’s own U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz asking supporters sign a Mother’s Day card for Michelle Obama.
But it still sounds cloyingly creepy.
“Over the past few years, the First Lady has done so much to help kids, veterans, and military families — and she’s raising two strong and smart daughters while doing it,” Wasserman Schultz writes.
“We’re lucky to have Michelle Obama as our First Lady, and Sasha and Malia are lucky to have her as a mom.”
This is no knock on the Obama girls. Where and who you’re born to is pretty much out of your hands. And maybe they are stronger and smarter than your average teen and tween – all that work in the White House garden paying off.
But does raising two young girls – something millions of women are doing even without a wealthy, powerful husband and an army of servants to do the grunt work – really merit the thanks of a grateful nation?
