When Harvard law student Barry Obama took a summer job at Chicago’s prestigeous Sidley Austin law firm, the world was unaware that history was being made. It was there where, according to her supervisors, the uppity bitch and second-year associate Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, eager to change the world, was making a name for herself complaining about being treated as a second-year associate.
It was while tagging along behind Michelle, Barry’s advisor at the time, that the earth moved for the future POtuS, and not because the bulk in her over-ample butt caused the building’s rafters to shake.
After loving her from afar, and with a lot of arm twisting and haranguing by Revrun Jeremiah Wright, Michelle finally agreed to lower herself and accept a date with the first-year law student. On that momentous day, the duo sauntered around the Southside of Chicago, providing the young, love-struck community organizer with the huge bat ears the chance to clearly sweep the object of his affection right off her size-11 feet.
The date was a success because the lovers were married in 1992. Then in 2012, the site of the Obamas’ first kiss, (which Bat Ears said tasted like chocolate), outside a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop in Chicago’s Hyde Park, was memorialized with a city plaque
Since then, ice cream of every flavor, and from every corner of the globe, (courtesy of tax payers) has occasionally been spotted on the front of both their shirts.
Now, here we are, a mere twenty-something years later, and finally a film will recount the summer of 1989 when Barack enticed America’s future first lady to take a stroll, enjoy the cultural sights at the Art Institute, and hold hands while watching “Do the Right Thing”, well known race baiter Spike Lee’s movie about sizzling summer days, pizza, and racial unrest.
So move over, Gone with the Wind and Titanic, because Moochie and Barry’s steaming hot passion is about to make its way onto the silver screen. That’s right – the epic romance story Southside With You, due to begin filming in July of 2015, is poised to fly like a poisoned dagger straight into America’s hearts.
Southside With You originated in the fertile minds of producer Richard Tanne, who wrote the screenplay, and Get On Up actress Tika Sumpter. Producers Tracey Bing, Richard Tanne, and Columbia Pictures alumni Stephanie Allain inexplicably view the Obama romance as one of the “great love stories of our time.”
Sumpter and Tanne developed the script and will co-produce the flick. In fact, Tika is so committed to the project that instead of offering Whoopi Goldberg the leading role, she cast herself as the warm and always welcoming Michelle, which is sort of like actress Halle Berry casting herself as Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. I would suggest that this actor would be perfect in the role of Wookie :
According to Tracey Bing, “Richard really captures the essence of that romantic connection between Barack and Michelle that is so evident in the way that they look at each other.”
Well! America certainly looks forward to witnessing those scenes. I hope that the movie will capture some of the more notable side-glances Moosie has shot Barry’s way over the years.
Tracey Bing did add, “We are looking forward to finding the perfect Barack.”
Well good luck with that. Hitler, Marx and Mao are all dead.
Unknown at this time is whether the film will chronicle the couple when Moochie was still ‘Michael’, or after.
That can definitely cause a casting snafu.
Nonetheless, if perchance the green-lit project should fall through, there’s always plenty of material for a movie chronicling the authenticity of the Clinton marriage. And with any luck, the currently hot, amply-sized actress/comedian Melissa McCarthy will be available to star as Hillary.
