The Onion's Gotta Get the Scuttlebutt on This

Erin Aubry Kaplan is Black and proud. She is a serious observer of all things political. Finally, someone represents her:
As I gradually relaxed, as Michelle strode onto more stages and people started focusing on her clothes and presence instead of her patriotism, it dawned on me -- good God, she has a butt! "Obama’s baby (mama) got back," wrote one feminist blogger. "OMG, her butt is humongous!" went a typical comment on one African-American online forum, and while it isn't humongous, per se, it is a solid, round, black, class-A boo-tay. Try as Michelle might to cover it with those Mamie Eisenhower skirts and sheath dresses meant to reassure mainstream voters, the butt would not be denied.

I feel vaguely uplifted knowing that millions of little black girls can look at the adulation of Michelle Obama and know that they will never have to worry about being judged by the content of their character, only the jiggle of their booty.

By "uplifted" I mean "disgusted."
