Shared Sacrifice: Clueless Michelle Obama Sports $42K in Diamonds

Americans are being crushed under massive unemployment, but who cares about sending the wrong message when your Queen Michelle? Can you just imagine the reaction if Laura Bush went around flaunting $42,000 worth of diamonds in public?

These people are just totally clueless.
That was no ordinary bling on the wrist of First Lady Michelle Obama at the DNC fundraiser in New York Tuesday night. Those fancy diamond cuffs were the creation of 23-year-old Katie Decker, whose namesake jewelry line has been making a serious splash since her graduation from Texas A&M two years ago.

The native Houstonian is over the moon with the fab pub that photos of the first lady in Katie Decker are already providing. Michelle Obama's stylist picked up the bracelets at Katie's showroom in Fragments in Soho. You can see more photos of the Obamas from the evening here by checking out the Gotham Hall event.

If you've been saving your nickels and dimes, the cuffs are available locally at Judith Ann Jewels. The First Lady wore Katie's Lotus cuff priced at $15,000 with 2.9 carats of diamonds, her Gothic cuff at $15,350 with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 with 1.73 carats in diamonds.

The word PIG is the only one that comes to mind. And I'm sure the lefties are familiar with that word - it's the one they've been using to describe our great law enforcement men and women for two generations. Well now, here's a case where it really applies.
