Sexist TMZ poll: ‘Michelle Obama vs. Ann Romney: Who’d you rather?’

This image and our reaction to it seems to me a perfect Rorschach of the cultural war going on in the United States.

TMZ in posting the image asks simply “Who’d you rather?”

It is our reaction as individuals to this question that creates the meaning by the answer that we provide. It is the Left that makes the image sexist and misogynistic by degrading both of these accomplished women to their base sexuality.

These images can as easily be seen as a comparison between two First Ladies. The existing one and the potential incoming First Lady. That is the way I see the image, and based on that choice I’d rather have Ann Romney.
