Michelle Obama Is No Pioneer

Above, Pat Nixon in Saudi Arabia in 1974. 

It is sometimes funny how the media just fawns over the Obamas.

The latest is this on Michelle Obama from the Associated Press:
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — For first lady Michelle Obama, just a few hours in Saudi Arabia were enough to illustrate the stark limitations under which Saudi women live. 
Joining President Barack Obama for a condolence visit after the death of the King Abdullah, Mrs. Obama stepped off of Air Force One wearing long pants and a long, brightly colored jacket — but no headscarf.
The media seems to be trying to make Michelle Obama as some sort of pioneer or something by not wearing a headscarf in Saudi Arabia, a strict Islamic country.

Well, First Lady Pat Nixon did not do so either during a state visit to Saudi Arabia in 1974. So Pat has Michelle beat by nearly 41 years.
