Just what does a $540 pair of sneakers look like?
Just ask Michelle Obama. Don't get me wrong. If you've earned the money and you can afford it, then by all means, buy and wear all the $540 pairs of sneakers your little heart desires. But it seems a bit hypocritical to me to be going around the country telling young people not to get into money making careers so that they too can afford a pair of sneakers that cost $540. And isn't it also a bit hypocritical to be telling today's young people to forsake high-paying careers when your earning a salary of $316,000 a year (almost twice your husband's Senate pay) at a hospital that seems to be rather closely linked to your husband.
UPDATE: OH MY GOSH! Even CBS News found this offensive!
