Here’s Michelle in all her glory… munching food and rolling her eyes at John Boehner. Below is the gushing from Gawker.com who think MO’s immature behavior is totally dreamy.
Gawker- While it is a lively term “throwing shade” is not appropriate here. In this instance Michelle is definitely interacting with an Enemy whom she chooses to ignore with prejudice because she is classy and wonderful and because John Boehner is not worth the energy it takes to turn one’s head. John Boehner is the Enemy of All the Free People of Middle Earth and Michelle has no other recourse than to ignore his Necromancerty.
Throwing shade is a perfectly wonderful term of gay-vogue era that Gawker keeps desperately trying to revive with honorable intentions but incorrect usage. Please do better. Here is a link to the Urban Dictionary defining the term [www.urbandictionary.com]
The primary usage for the term is described: “to talk trash about a friend or aquaintance, to publicly denounce or disrespect. When throwing shade it’s immediately obvious to on-lookers that the thrower, and not the throwee, is the bithcy, uncool one.”
