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.
