    I don't wear fur, but you'll never take away my bone-in ribeye grilled to perfection. Sorry PETA dudes. Have a nice day!

    This does not belong on the Ticker, but here it goes: are they required to obtain permission for something like this? Frankly put, when you wear your fur you are exposing yourself to postive as well as negative reactions. It's a risk that we take. On the other hand, considering how down to earth and economical the FLOTUS has been in her choice of attire, her vegetable garden, x-mas decorations et al, it does sound a bit mean-spirited to put her in the spotlight like this. IMHO.

    While I am all for animal rights, I do not agree with many of the tactic PETA uses to get their message across! I dont blame the WH for wanting to distance themselves. If I were Michelle Obama, I would be slightly miffed.
