More On Michelle Obama's Snit Fit

Of the many adjectives I used yesterday regarding our collective perception of the president's wife, I left one out.

Over-adored.

Mickey Kaus adds to the list with this:
Michelle Obama’s thin skin is the best thing to happen to Jodi Kantor’s new book, as John Hudson notes. … Mrs. Obama may not fit [the] “angry black woman” stereotype she’s complaining about, but she’s confirming the ”over-adored political wife who can’t stand bad press” stereotype, no? Kantor’s book, from all accounts, is by and large good press for the Obamas. Not good enough, apparently.  
She really does need to get over herself.
