Michelle Obama showed once again that she is out of touch with the real world.
The same woman who complained about having to spend $10,000 a year for piano, sports and dance lessons for her children has turned up her nose at the $600 stimulus checks, saying "What can you do with that?" and suggesting the money would be gone as soon as someone bought a new pair of earrings.
Well, Michelle, most Americans can do quite a lot with $600 -- which never should have been taken by the government in the first place -- and I suspect many taxpayers would be taken aback by the idea of blowing it on expensive earrings.
What planet is this woman living on?
