Twitchy already treated you to your emetic of the day courtesy of New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, so consider this an extra dose for later if you need it. Democrats descended on Boston today to raise funds for Rep. Edward J. Markey, but the star of the event was once again first lady Michelle Obama’s arms. This line from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, conveyed by a pool reporter, was the take-away quote from the event.
Elizabeth Warren on Michelle Obama, per pool: "“I love Michelle Obama. She’s a real fighter. Just take a look at those biceps."

Don’t underestimate the hypnotic powers of the first lady’s biceps, which have earned even more press coverage than her bangs and, according to the Los Angeles Times, are responsible for a spike in requests for upper-arm lifts. Sally Quinn once wrote that Michelle Obama’s arms “are representative of a new kind of woman: young, strong, vigorous, intelligent, accomplished, sexual, powerful, embracing and, most of all, loving.”
Imagine how many stuffed bears the first lady and Chris Christie could win if they teamed up at the boardwalk football toss.
