*Looks at Michelle's eyebrows*

Hmm, from what I can tell, the government shutdown happened when Michelle was in the middle of an eyebrow plucking/waxing session with those sixteen personal assistants. They got through the right one just fine, but then the government shut down (and the sixteen assistants got subsequently fired) before they could perfect the arch on the left one! That brow's arch is a mess!

Seriously, I love what her face looks like, and the whole truth behind it! It really is shocking how much both these loons running our country are flushing us down the toilet! Our leaders are supposed to be honest and humble, and the Obama's don't even come close to that...

Great cartoon!

It is the best way to humiliate yourself by making false accusations! :) 

Eighter you are this stupid. Or you are making a parody of the republicans. 

Oh, I'm not from the US. But we have the same politicians and activists like you.

"Eighter you are this stupid. Or you are making a parody of the republicans"

Why do you people always accuse anything that is anti-liberal to be some conspiracy of someone posing as a conservative to make conservatives look stupid.

You people parrot the same insults, none of which are ever any good and just show how your collectivist minds dont think for themselves.

Experience. Please accept my experience from my own country.

Like having a black car following a politician wherever she goes and then shouting all false staff from her from a loudspeaker while wandering trough the city as political champaign. Also mentioning "I would f..k her even if she is a (minority)" and calling ladies b...es at the chamber and loudly spreading conspiracy theories as part of the campaign. 

The difference might be, that we are shameless for one party, and entirely chicken for the other.

So I'm just a BIT angry for my own and that is what you tasted.

Really? Attacking Michelle Obama who has nothing to do with the government shutdown? Guess that means I can attack Nancy Reagan for the Iran-Contra affair her husband started.

Lol.  There is no attack of her regarding the "shutdown," but rather an attack that as a human being that has a need for 16 "non-essential" personal assistants (servants) in the first place, paid by the taxpayers.  Of course she still has more personal assistants that were not furloughed, but still, who needs that many servants on the taxpayers' dime?  It is one thing if someone pays for that kind of service from their own finances, but seriously, it is estimated that she has like 25 to 30 personal servants.  She has no "responsibilities" required of her under the office as a first lady.  I could understand 1 for her and each kid (3), and maybe another 1 or 2 to help coordinate dinners and/or public events, but 30ish?  BTW feel free to attack any first lady, regardless of party, who wastes and abuses the taxpayers money, I would support your editorial.  :)

I wasn't even really planning on attacking Ms. Reagan anyway, she's a very decent and kind women :shrug: .

But your reasoning... You do realize this is very common in the position of the first lady right? :| www.snopes.com/politics/obama/… Many First Ladies throughout history had a lot of PA's, and as Snopes pointed out, some first ladies had more PA's then Mrs. Obama. 

A look at some first ladies and their staff sizes: 

Laura Bush: Between 24 and 26 by end of President George W. Bush's term in 2009, according to Anita McBride, Mrs. Bush's chief of staff. 

Lady Bird Johnson, whose signature issue was beautifying roadways, had a staff of 30, said Stacy A. Cordery, a history professor at Montmouth [sic] College in Illinois who studies first ladies. 

Betty Ford had almost the same number. 

Jacqueline Kennedy, who made renovating the White House her cause, had about 40 people on staff, Cordery said.

Yes, I know, but these days overspending is the problem, so all "abuse" and "waste" of tax revenues gets attention.  Just because it was done before, doesn't make it okay to repeat - multiple wrongs don't make a right after all. 

Nothing in the constitution says the anything about personal servants, as that is usually reserved for royalty.  Imagine if your local mayor's wife started using city tax revenues for personal servants...  This overspending, waste, fraud, abuse...  at every level has got to stop.

If it isn't in the constitution, then it isn't illegal. The sad fact of the matter is that this is basically something nobody really gives two shits about, because this isn't something politicians and pundits cry about unless it is a family with an opposing political ideology.

She does actually do things like this. She has a crazy amount of "personal assistants." Last I checked she only had 12, so I think this is a little exaggerated, but honestly who the hell needs more than one when you don't even do anything? And when they go on vacation (which is all on tax payer dime, mind you), they can't just take the same private jet, she has to have her own, as does the dog. Her trip to Spain cost taxpayers something horribly crazy like $1.6 million.
