Media Matters Gets To The Bottom Of Michelle Obama's Flag Flap

Media Matters to the rescue!

While rightwing bloggers insist Michelle said something to the effect of "All this just for a flag?" (My personal lip-reading investigation concludes its closer to "All this just to fold a flag?"), Media Matters has gone straight to the horse's mouth, so to speak.

According to Kristina Schake Baghdad Bob (FTFY, Ronin), Michelle Obama's communications director, Michelle actually said: "It is so moving and powerful to watch all that America's firefighters and police officers do to honor the flag."

Michelle's smug head shake was, in fact, an expression of awe resulting from the emotionally powerful display.

Don't you all feel ashamed for misinterpreting the First wookie Lady?
