Queen Michelle wears $12,000 dress at $600,000 state dinner

Via the Weekly Standard.

This was undoubtedly her attempt to show solidarity with the little people; those oppressed ninety-nine percenters for whom the Obamas claim to speak. There’s nothing quite like throwing a lavish, taxpayer-financed party complete with $400 bottles of wine wearing a dress that cost five figures to highlight the income inequality about which her husband whines incessantly.  Never mind the fact that inequality has only worsened during his reign. But no matter. I’m sure those low-skilled workers who necessarily lose their jobs because of Obama’s minimum wage hike will find solace in a bottle of Two-Buck Chuck, content in the knowledge that the royal couple has their backs. It’s the thought that counts, right?
