Republican Congressman Insults Michelle Obama's Rear End

Jim Sensenbrenner puts his foot in his mouth, big time.

Published December 23, 2011

Bipartisanship has become a quaint and outdated a word in Washington these days, but one thing both sides of the political debate have always been able to agree on is that Michelle Obama has a bangin' bod.

That's why Democrats and Republicans were left scratching their heads recently when conservative congressman Jim Sensenbrenner complained to everyone gathered at a Delta lounge in Reagan National Airport about the First Lady's "large posterior."

Sensenbrenner (or should we start calling him Nonsensenbrenner?) told a colleague over the phone that Mrs. Obama should practice what she preaches about healthy eating and exercise: "She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself," he said a little too loudly.

Perhaps realizing that many Americans like big butts and they cannot lie (and that the First Lady's derriere is likely to poll very favorably), Nonsensenbrenner issued an apology (via Politico.com):

“I regret my inappropriate comment and I have sent a personal note to the first lady apologizing.”
