Ouch! Benjamin Zycher: “Michelle Obama… is an Intellectual Lightweight.”


Michelle Obama, Princeton Graduate

Michelle Obama, Princeton Graduate

Here’s something that made me projectile-laugh hot coffee through my nose:

“Now, let me be blunt: Michelle Obama, the product of lifelong affirmative-action coddling, is an intellectual lightweight who fancies herself a serious thinker. Just read her Princeton senior thesis, an intermittently coherent stream-of-consciousness pile of leftist jargon, campus pseudo-seriousness, and racial-identity babble. Can there be any doubt that the Princeton administrators accepted it only because of her skin color?”

*golf clap*

Wow. Just wow. These are things to be thought and not spoken. I wonder if Ben will be banished from The Corner for this bit of unvarnished truth?

    This can’t be right, the spouse of the anointed one must be brainiac. After all she had that hospital job at US$300k/year that hasn’t been filled since she left………………oh, right………political nepotism………………..yeah, she’s a lightweight.

  2. thefrollickingmole Says:

    I was reading the thesis and would sum it up as such.

    There cant be a privileged wealthy black class.
    There are only poor blacks and rich “white blacks”.

    Therefore she seems to be claiming there could never arise a completely separate wealthy (or even middle class) form of black society without losing their “authenticity”.

    A completely false argument. Its a bit like arguing wealthy white people arent really white because they dont act like/share the opinions of poor white people.

    A completely arse backwards view of the world.

    Even though it was a long time ago and she was a student, I have to say at least she didn’t use the word ‘whilst’ in her thesis, unlike this “small quantity but high quality of” boobies that I’ve come across this morning.

      You mean that as an American, she speaks American English; as opposed to those here who tend to speak Australian &/or British English?

      Do tell. What an astounding revelation.

      And the British and Australians are “boobies” for not having adopted American English?

      Oh, my. How tolerant of you.

      I love Canadians.

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      heh heh…………he said boobies.

  4. onlyserious Says:

    Zycher is really profound in his analysis…of a college kid. Let’s see his senior thesis so we can judge his current intellectual capacity–it doesn’t quite shine through in this hateful screed.

    • CollegeKid Says:

      I agree, peoples mental capacities expand as you age and judging someone on their old college thesis is BS. When I read any papers from my past, even last year that I spent weeks on, they sound like crap now.

    why do jewish neocons hate people with dark skin? have they forgoten, what happened to the jews in europe? it was the same racial hatred…

    • bingbing Says:

      Why do you apply your rules of, let’s say, categorization, to the rest of us?

    This is her BS Thesis we are talking about. It is definitely not light weight and not that bad. She asks great questions. Who doesn’t recieve nepotism in politics. I think she is great, and this work show me even more how important equality is to her, and how much she is thinking of the citizens of this country that most people don’t care to even consider human. seriously, lets see everyone’s Bachelor’s Thesis?

  7. Serena Says:

    Yup – Affirmative Action coddled her all the way along but many, including the 1st Lady herself, imagine that she is intellectually gifted. Very sad.

  8. Lidia Says:

    …he says affirmative action like its a bad thing. If affirmative action gets you into college so that you can get an education I don’t see what’s so bad about it. Any citizen of the US equally deserves the right to fuck up in college then scrape together a last minute BS thesis together that’s just good enough to graduate. And I don’t remember anyone reviewing Laura Bush’s college thesis (but with who she married- her level of intelligence is apparent). And it was college. She’s a grown woman now. Although it was amusing of Zycher to say, it also doesn’t say much for his intelligence but how good he is at stating the obvious…

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      You make some interesting points Lidia, but, Laura Bush didn’t surround herself with over 20 staff nor did she push her children forward as “victims” in the “war against obesity” neither did she try to ride her husbands coattails to present her own personal agenda, if nothing else she was a woman who kept herself to herself and focused on her charity work instead.

      As far as a BS thesis goes, MObambi has it nailed, victim status, motherhood statements & populist trash, the stuff any undergraduate would be embarresed to submit if they had any semblance of academic rigor.

  9. rob Says:

    She is to a intellectual heavy weight she held a high chicago hospital position before turmimg first lady. She also graduated second in her high school class, graduated Princeton cum laude and then went to harvard law.

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      Ok rob, the job she had at the Chicago hospital was sooooo important that the position is no longer extant. Where i come from that is called “jobs for the boys”, drooling mouthbreathers have a greater intellect than Mobambi. Her twee undergraduate ramblings are an embarrassment.

      Oh yeah, learn some spelling and grammer you illiterate turd.

  10. T. Smith Says:

    This is for all of the people who mention affirmative action like it’s a bad thing: Did affirmative action make her graduate with cum laude honors?

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      So you think that gaining entry to higher education on the basis of gender or ethnicity as opposed to academic achievement is ok.

      Face it, she was given a soft ride and her ramblings fall short of any form of scholastic integrity, quite frankly if i’d submitted that dross as an undergraduate i would have had it returned and asked to resubmit the material.

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      Oh, i forgot to add the twee squeakings she put forward in her paper was the acme of academic sloth.

      Cum Laude…..more like come later…..rubbish work from a lazy student.

  11. Pebble Says:

    Haha. It does me good to hear all the vituperative ranting from a set of folks who canNOT beleive that they are the intellectually inferior of a blac k woman. get over it. Many more like her on thier way!!

    • bingbing Says:

      Pebble. First up. Nice use of a wanky word most people don’t understand.

      Obviously, you are yet another over-educated leftist. So caught up in definitions that you fail to define life on a day to day basis.

      Obama and Michelle have many good qualities – if you read my blog, you’ll see that credit is given when due.

      Current news-politics could be an issue here but what you have argued is essentially a non-argument.

      You have argued about “a set of folks who canNOT beleive that they are the intellectually inferior of a blac k woman.”

      In doing so, you have belittled Michelle Obama insofar as catorigising her as a black woman against a white man. You have cast aside any notion of intellectual endeavour, instead reverting to basic tribalism and racism.

      How archaic.

      It’s a front. A lame-ass sham attempt to label your opposition as “racist”.

      FAIL.

      Why don’t you look at Obama and Michelle’s political philosophy?

      Hint: The civilised world moved past “racism” a while back.

      And when you look at Obama’s political philosophy, that’s when it gets kinda bad.

    • The Wizard of WOZ Says:

      I will freely admit that Condoleezza Rice is intellectually superior to me.

      I don’t care two squirts of piss what colour she is on the outside, she’s red in the middle, just like the rest of us.

      As for “Many more like her on thier way!!”. Well they may be superior to you, but being able to spell correctly is something that I learned in primary school…

    Carpe, um “grammer”? Hahahahahahahahahahaaaa. Who’s the illiterate turd?
    Oh and , where I come from, I is spelled “I”, not “i”, and “rob” is spelled “Rob” as a proper noun. Hello.
    Finally, “extant” is not a word. Go back to sleep numb nuts.

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      Please, call me Sir mr grammer nazi, you do realise that lower case is a sign of disdain fucknuckle.

      Extant is not a word?????? were you also born an illiterate moron;
      The dictionary definition of the word is; Extant: Still in existence; not destroyed, lost, or extinct.

      Keerist what a cretin, don’t you have a window to lick instead of wasting my bandwidth cumgargler.

    • bingbing Says:

      A dud e with the name bonasca ridicules a dude called carpe …

    • bingbing Says:

      LOL!!

    • bingbing Says:

      Who knows what the fuck to teach them. That the word “an” is used when the following word starts with a vowel?

      Or in the case of those fukn Yanks who can’t say “herb” without the “H”?

    • bingbing Says:

      PS And that goes for you Canadians, too. Yank wannabes.

      Almost as bad as Kiwis.

    • Carpe Jugulum Says:

      bonasca – i believe that is latin for ‘I like being fisted up my freckle’.

      Who would have thunk it. Not just a moron but anal retentive as well.

  13. Michael S. Cullen Says:

    This is late. But since so much about Zycher & Michelle Obama has been written and published on the web, I can’t resist remarking on the low level of English (grammar, orthography, punctuation) shown by many of those on both sides of the divide in this dispute. Pitiful!
