The weird thing about Michelle Obama is that from the moment she's entered public life, there's been a pretty stark disconnect between what she actually tries to do, and what opponents of her husband's policies says she does. Even when she tries something safe, like coming down against childhood obesity, people scream as though she'd personally banned candy.
If she were to come out firmly against drinking bleach, there are parts of the country that'd be using it as a vodka mixer by five o'clock that night.
