Viet vets who still vote Democrat, you have renewed reason to respect the President and First Lady. Not only has Barack Obama made that stalwart patriot of the three Purple Hearts John Kerry Secretary of State, but Michelle Obama now thinks Jane Fonda was right about you.
In their latest interview with Michelle Obama, People magazine asked if there were role models the First Lady looked at to think “When I’m 70 or 80, I want to look and live like her?”
Mrs. Obama thought of actresses: Cicely Tyson, and then that “politically savvy, sharp woman” named Jane Fonda, age 76:
“I just went to see Cicely Tyson on Broadway. She is in her 80s [just turned 80 in December] and did a two-hour play with stamina and passion. I told her ‘I want to be you when I grow up!'” And then she added: “There’s Jane Fonda, a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman.”
Last November, new U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power sounded a similar note:
“Hi everybody,” Power said, according to a transcript. “You know life has changed when you’re hanging out with Jane Fonda backstage. There is no greater embodiment of being outspoken on behalf of what you believe in — and being ‘all in’ in every way — than Jane Fonda. And it’s a huge honor just to even briefly have shared the stage with her.” [More NewsBusters]
So, baby killers, your moral and intellectual superior Mrs. Obama doesn’t care if Jane Fonda used an anti-aircraft gun that shot at hundreds of U.S. flyers, some of whom were taken prisoner and others who died, as a prop for her publicity photo with the Vietnamese communists.
Sure, 1,300 were starved and tortured in the prison camps, and 60,000 died and multiple tens of thousands more were maimed, but that was 40 years ago and we are beyond that now.
What’s important is that Hanoi Jane is “a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman” right now at 76, and Michelle Obama’s ideal-to-strive-for role model.
So get over it, and by all means, vote Democrat!
