What's wrong with the First Lady wearing shorts?
Of all the things to gripe about with respect to our First Lady....
How is it that the American people have the time, the energy and the actual belief that it's appalling that Michelle Obama wore shorts on a trip last weekend to the Grand Canyon?
Similarly, how is that we've decided to debate whether or not it's appropriate for her to wear them? She was dressed for 100 degree heat for crying out loud.
The irony of this, as The Chicago Tribune astutely points out, is that a majority of the responses to online polls about this issue found most people coming to Obama's defense.
So, if no one cares about her wearing shorts, than why are we having this conversation?
