The FLOTUS Best Picture Oscars Surprise

In a surprise guest appearance at the Oscars tonight, First Lady Michelle Obama announced the winner of the Best Picture award. In her lead up to the announcement, she gave a shout out to the LGBT community:

These nine movies took us back in time and all around the world they made us laugh, they made us weep and they made us grip our armrests just a little tighter. They taught us that love can endure against all odds and transform our lives in the most surprising ways, and they reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage to believe in ourselves. These lessons apply to all of us no matter who we are or what we look like or where we come from or who we love.

The combination of her appearance coupled with an LGBT equality shout-out immediately sent the wingnut community into a tizzy of epic proportions. I’m actually STILL laughing at some of these tweets. Here’s a sampling of the right wing hissy fit occurring right now on Twitter: 

And that’s just a small sampling of the vitriol coming out of the right over an innocuous guest appearance peppered with a plea for tolerance and equality. And the right really wonders why moderates are running away from them in droves.

Tim Peacock is the Managing Editor and founder of Peacock Panache and has worked as a civil rights advocate for over twenty years. During that time he’s worn several hats including leading on campus LGBT advocacy in the University of Missouri campus system, interning with the Colorado Civil Rights Division, and volunteering at advocacy organizations.

    This type of surgeon would be great if you are looking to have a nose assignment.
    Now I know that she has mentioned potential cosmetic surgery
    for her nose earlier, but this hit me tremendously
    hard. In case that you have a medical problem or imperfections in the nasal area, this treatment are often a great help.

    After a laser hair removal procedure the area where hair has been removed will be red for a few hours.
    The RESTING or TELOGEN phase lasts 5 – 6 weeks, at the end
    of which the hair falls out and the new hair becomes visible.
    Try to only use a disposable razor one time to get the closest shave possible.

  • I had to watch Mrs. Obama's delivery on them youtubes, because when her image entered the screen, my Republican mother had a fit, which sent off the rest of the kids in the room into all kinds of noisy excitement. So from my mom there was apoplectic shock about the show belonging to Liberals, and from the kids there were cries of "Boooring!" I was appalled and mortified and embarrassed by the behavior of my mom, and so glad the only ones present to witness her ridiculousness was family and her equally Republican BFF.

    How the hell did I exit that woman's womb? I'm surprised my Liberal ways didn't explode toxins into her body and cause her to system to shut down. Of course, she wasn't a Christian back then. I suspect if she had been, my rotten soul would have doomed her uterus to a blackened withering away.

    I adore Michelle Obama, and I have to say it: she's classier than anything coming out of Hollywood these days. The celebutantes would do well to take a lesson from a dynamic speaker, advocate, mother, wife, and all-around educated pillar of society! If we had more appearances by Michelle and her gorgeous daughters and less from Lindsey Lohan and Kim Kardashian, our country just might stand a chance.
