The Right To Bare Arms

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on February 28, 2009



The official portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama was recently released. She is the prettiest First Lady in quite a while.  Unlike her husband, she is a full blooded African American.  Her father’s great grandfather, Jim Robinson, was a slave in South Carolina.

The First Lady is an important person. Laura Bush stayed in the background, which was a welcome change from the mediamania for Hillary Clinton and Nancy Reagan. It remains to be seen what sort of role Mrs. Obama will play in the next few years.

There is a bit of controversy over the choice of a sleeveless gown for this portrait. The second amendment does say something about the right to bare arms.

HT to transgriot, who has an interesting comment. It seems that looking over MLRO’s shoulder is a portrait of Thomas Jefferson. Mr. Jefferson was a slave owner. He apparently had a romantic relationship with one of his properties, a lady named Sally Hemmings. Yes, the image is ironic.
