Even worse: UC endorses...Michelle Obama?

In keeping with our demonstrated preference for contrarianism (including contrarianism against our own principles and positions) "we" at Unforeseen Contingencies are very happy to be able to take our hats off and give two thumbs up to First Lady Michelle Obama. During the Obama's visit to Indonesia, the First Lady shook hands with Indonesia's Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring during an official reception.

As it turns out, Mr. Sembiring is a conservative Muslim (not one of those fundamentalists who distort Islam, mind you) and isn't to touch any woman to whom he isn't related. (Yes, I know this is pregnant with meaning, and no, I don't know what it actually is supposed to mean; I'm just relating what Yahoo News has reported.) Hence he's now backpedaling and claiming Mrs. Obama forced herself on him. And yes, the video indeed captures his horror at having his pious abstinence ruthlessly violated by Mrs. Obama.

"We" have never been a fan of Mrs. Obama, and while we haven't commented on her, we have been increasingly upset by her and her support for the nanny state and her anti-French-fry-ism. But negativity always pains us, and so we are happy that at long last we are to be able to say, in good conscience, "way to go, Mrs. O!"
