Celebglitz~First Lady Michelle Obama shines on the cover of Good Housekeeping magazine, May 125th Anniversary issue.

The little nothings in life that we don’t do anymore: Running an errand,” Mrs. O tells Good Housekeeping magazine about what she misses most from from her private life. “Walking into your kid’s school without causing a fuss. Going out to dinner without a press pool.”

She says that her daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama, aren’t too thrilled with all the attention. “Our girls are pretty modest types, and they don’t like the attention, the hoopla. They will say things like, ‘Ugh, Dad, do you have to drive around with the sirens in the car? Do you have to block up all the traffic?’

Check out the latest issue of Good Housekeeping, hitting newsstands April 13.

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Grace ESSENCE’s March Cover

Posted by: Audiegrl

“Malia will tell you, my attitude was, if she came home with a B, that’s not good enough because there’s no reason why she can’t get an A…”~President Barack Obama, Essence

ESSENCE kicks off the first of its three-part education series, “Teaching Our Children,” with a White House exclusive–an interview with President Barack Obama. In his first interview of 2010, he talks tough with ESSENCE editor-in-chief Angela Burt-Murray, Deputy Editor Tatsha Robertson and Washington Correspondent Cynthia Gordy about holding teachers accountable, closing the education gap between Black and White students, how he and First Lady Michelle Obama encourage daughters Malia and Sasha to love learning, and how you can do the same with your own children.

Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue” Goes Rogue: Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night” Sketch (VIDEO)

In Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night sketch, Sarah Palin’s “Going Rogue” has gone rogue. It picked up a gun, snuck off the set of “Late Night,” evaded FBI capture, shot Rachel Maddow and went to meet up with its lover. Using every fugitive-on-the-run cliche to give the book a life of its own.

*Another Opinion* Tina Brown: “Palin Newsweek cover is NOT sexist”

Daily Beast founder’s commentary: “Palin’s outrage is calculated”

    By Tina Brown Founder, editor of The Daily Beast

Now that Palin has stopped pretending to be a politician — there’s been zero effort in any interview so far to leave the EQ stuff behind and divert to a policy message — the abdicated Alaskan governor is back to being as appealing as she was when she first made her debut at the GOP convention at John McCain’s side. (Admit it: We loved her at first when she thumbed-over-the-shoulder the now famous crowd-pleaser “The governor’s private plane? I put it on eBay!).

With Oprah, she was once again fun when she shafted Levi Johnston, that feckless dope of a near-miss son-in-law. She was wonderfully sly when, the next day, Barbara Walters on Good Morning America gravely quoted McCain adviser Steve Schmidt’s assessment that as VP she would have been an unmitigated disaster. With a roguish smile, Palin responded, “That sounds like Steve Schmidt!” And the appearance of her genuinely fond-seeming teenage daughter Willow with her younger sister — cute as can be Piper, who told Barbara it was “sad” when her mother was criticized — gave us, for the first time, a whiff of authentic Palin family feeling.‪

My only regret in this recent series of star turns was Palin’s denunciation of the current Newsweek’ cover to her Facebook following as “sexist.” That’s the boring old fake-gravitas Sarah speaking. The Newsweek cover shot, a months-old Google chestnut from Runner’s World of sassy Sarah in shorts, didn’t show much journalistic enterprise on the magazine’s part, but you can hardly call it sexist. No one cried sexism when New York magazine took a photo of fallen Gov. Eliot Spitzer and added the word “brain” with an arrow to his crotch. And circa 1994 we were all happy to ogle Bill Clinton in his running shorts and never called out the media’s ethical judgment. If you don’t want the moment captured on film, don’t show up in sporty hot pants for a photo shoot.
But Palin, like Carrie Prejean, is savvy enough to know that umbrage is a great Day 3 story when you are running the media marathon.‪
Indeed, her “hurt” retaliation is probably doing the same thing for Newsweek’s sales as what she suggests an appearance on her old foe Letterman’s show would do for the sales of her book (hint, hint). Everyone is someone else’s catalyst for selling something these days. And right now, by golly, Sarah Palin is out there selling herself.

Gregg Mitchell: New TIME Cover on Glenn Beck Ignores Facts, and Worse

Glenn Beck the Brat

Glenn Beck the Brat

Gregg Mitchell/HuffPost—I have no quarrel with TIME magazine devoting a cover to Glenn Beck — so long as the accompanying story sticks to hard facts and harsh truths. The issue coming tomorrow, online today, sadly fails to do so in an apparent effort to woo the rightwing with a ludicrously “balanced” treatment of equally dangerous and wacko “ranting” coming from left and right.

It starts right away with a first paragraph that claims that only “liberal sources” estimated the protest crowd in D.C. last weekend as about 70,000, while conservatives say up to a million or more. Actually, virtually all mainstream media sources, along with nonpartisan factchecking organizations such as PolitiFact, cite the lower number.
