Our Michelle, Our American Queen
Now, you know, I'm trippin today, right? I waited so long to see The Obamas meet up with the Old Guard o'er there in Britannia for the G-20 Summit.
Months waiting for the event, not disappointed, our good brother, President 44 and his wife, have officially met the Queen of England. I'm so satisfied cause Prez passed another test. Impressive. But lawdhavmercy! You know somebody had to steal his thunder from the occasion.
With all due respect, some white people across The Pond oughta quit. Saw all over the news this morning how some folk are up in arms because Mrs. O put her arm on the Queen's back. Oh Jeezus. WTF! Wasn't it the Queen who reached out put her £800 Gazillion British Pound sleeve on Michelle's back first? Besides, HRH actually looked happy to meet the Obamas. (Lord knows I was worried about our boy too. I love Barack and all, but even I doubted the "O" on his chest with falling in line with Royal Protocol. Especially after the Nancy Reagan faux Pas when he was President-Elect.)
Chile, now I am nothin' but impressed wit' Mr. and Mrs. Barack H. Obama. Just watching the news reports on CNN sends a chill down my spine. Watching our brother descend the steps of Air Force One or Marine One... President is definitely large and in charge! Head Negro In Charge. Three and a half months later, I'm still grasping we have a Black President.
And Miss Michelle? She's has officially become my heroine of the decade. She's just so real, so down to earth, yet conveying the "sistah is not to be trifled with" attitude. I love it. I mean, Sistah Michelle...the First Lady, is going sleeveless in many of her get-ups. And folks are just frownin' about it. Well, the Old Guard are. The common folk, peeps like you and me, are finally glad we have someone Regal enough to pull up J. Crew and make it look like a $1,000,000 bucks! I nominate her for Queen of the United States. Then again, RuPaul might be awfully pissed at me...
