Michelle Obama: I Know Many Will Say It Is a Sacrifice for Me and My Friend Oprah to Fly to Europe First Class and Stay in Four-Star Hotels, But I'm Willing to Do That for the Children of Chicago

No, really.

In her speech in Copenhagen today, First Lady Michelle Obama said her trip to Denmark, along with the travel of her “dear friend” and “chit-chat buddy” Oprah Winfrey, as well as tomorrow’s visit by President Obama, is a “sacrifice” on behalf of the children of Chicago and the United States. “As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days,” the first lady told a crowd of people involved in the Chicago project, “so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home.”

Sacrifice.

I've never been proud of my country until now.

Copenhagen. Now, true, Copenhagen isn't one of the first ten European cities you think of when you think of vacation paradise. Still -- I'm pretty sure it's not that bad, especially not in early fall. It is, you know, a minor capital, and a major city in an advanced wealthy western nation.

I'm pretty sure they wear shoes there, and outbreaks of cholera are mostly contained.

And they have some copper statue of a mermaid or somethin'. With breasts. So, right there -- nice statue. Breasts. Worth the trip.

What sacrifices will the Divine Miss M sacrifice next? Hobnobbing with socially-conscious rock and roll icons? Jaunting off to Hollywood to fund-raise from beautiful and charismatic celebrities? Appearing as a goodwill ambassador at the Venice Film Festival?

What more do you demand of this woman? She's doing all she can. Who warms The Sun?

This sounds an awful lot like the hellish exile Roman Polanski spent in Paris.

Thanks to Slublog.

Credit: "Who warms the Sun?" comes from Just Shoot Me. Nina Van Horne, a similarly cluelessly entitled and self-centered woman, exclaims this in exasperation after doing a similarly minor task for someone (but mostly for herself).

In case you don't get it -- she's the Sun, providing warmth and light for us all without complaint. She just wants to know when, o when, anyone will ever warm her, she who makes the flowers bloom and the corn rise tall.
