Michelle Obama's fake stutter - same as Barack'sWhat do you think of the fake stutter? I suppose it's calculated to make us feel like they're "just plain folks" - it is so insulting how stupid they think we are.
Oh, and do you like the "schtruggle" Barack and Obama have been involved in all their lives?

Those who tuned in to Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention Tuesday may have experienced a strange sense of familiarity. Not because she has been in the national spotlight for the past four years, but because she bore a striking resemblance to her famous husband in speech and gesture.
Perhaps it is the natural result of being together for decades. Perhaps the famous orator coached her before her speech. Either way, the similarity was uncanny.
First and foremost, as Gawker noted, the first lady spoke with a feigned stutter. The admittedly left-leaning Gawker author writes:
Michelle Obama stutters. She does not have a stutter. She stutters on purpose. "I-I-I, I've seen it in our men and women in uniform." "Fr-from the young person with so much promise." "And-and, even as a kid..."
It is a studied stutter, deployed in order to build sincerity. It is not so much a rhetorical device as an acting device. The same could be said for the presentation of almost all political convention speeches. And it is, at its core, sad.
