So my family was discussing politics, as they are wont to do. One of them floated the possibility that Biden - who MUST pick a black woman as VP, black and woman being the only two things that matter - will pick Michelle Obama.
Hmmm. I wonder. The Obamas were all but worshiped by the press during the Obama years. No human suffering or death was enough for the press to scrutinize Obama. No scandal got anywhere near Pennsylvania Avenue. Obama was 90% of the time lauded and praised, and on the rarest of occasion, humbly asked why he wasn't perfect. More than that, the press all but sanctioned the accusation that anything short of deifying Obama was tantamount to Hitler inspired racism.
Michelle Obama, beyond her husband, received more veneration and adoration than the Blessed Mother. Every story about her oozed with near religious devotion. She was, as far as I know, the only First Lady to get 100% positive press from the "news media." To that end, poll after poll has found her popularity somewhere between The Beatles and God.
So you never know. Power is clearly not something that the Obamas shrink from. The humiliating defeat of Obama's Secretary of State, attempting to ride firmly on his coattails, had to have been a major hit. Ever since 1988, the "news media" and the Left (but I repeat myself) have been trying to elevate a Democratic president to the point where his VP would then sail into the White House with the same ease that Bush did with Reagan.
So we'll see. It's not out of the ballpark. Remember, 2020 was the year the Left declared war on America so that Trump would be defeated. It's willing to turn Democratic strongholds into demilitarized zones of arson, violence, destruction and death. It's willing to destroy the lives of millions of Americans. It's willing to throw millions of poor under the bus. It's willing to turn as many millions of Americans against each other as possible. I'd say propping Michelle up as the first truly immaculately conceived woman in history that she may also be the first female president - for how long would Biden last as president? - isn't the craziest theory I've heard.
