Oscars: Michelle Obama Announces Best Picture Award — Tea Party Goes Apoplectic

Post image for Oscars: Michelle Obama Announces Best Picture Award — Tea Party Goes Apoplectic

Seth MacFarlane was an interesting experiment at Sunday night’s Oscars, but Michelle Obama announcing the Academy Award winner for “Best Picture” was a stroke of genius — if only because it’s giving the Tea Party a stroke.

The First Lady announced that the nominees for Best Picture, “taught us that love can beat all odds. They reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage within ourselves.”

“It’s through cinema,” Mrs. Obama added, that “our children learn to open their imagination and dream just a little bigger and to strive every day to reach those dreams.”

But the First Lady also delivered a shout-out to the LGBT community, concluding, “These lessons apply to all of us no matter who we are or what we look like or where we come from or who we love.”

Cue. Right. Wing. Freak. Out. Now…

What are they doing watching the Oscars anyway, considering they allegedly hate all of that liberal Hollywood stuff?

Jesus F'in Chu-rist!!! Their mythical hero was a friggin' ACTOR and president of the Screen Actors Guild and they're going ballistic over an oscar appearance? Idiots, morons and imbeciles!

They'll be screaming for equal time. Maybe Ann Coulter can announce the winner of the next Publisher's Clearing House grand prize.

Coulter can announce the next list of SPLC hate groups.
