Apparently the the common phrase "A chip on her shoulder," referring to Michelle Obama`s speech, (you know, the one where she said "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country,") is evidence of some kind of conspiracy, in the fevered brains of David Brock`s employees, at George Soros`s Media Matters:
Media Matters - Tucker Carlson echoed Kaus, VDARE contributor on Michelle Obama: "I think she`s got a chip on her shoulder" Tucker Carlson echoed Kaus, VDARE contributor on Michelle Obama: "I think she`s got a chip on her shoulder"

Summary: Discussing recent comments by Michelle Obama, Tucker Carlson said: "I have thought from Day One that Michelle Obama, impressive as she is, clearly intelligent, very handsome, self-possessed — I think that she`s got a chip on her shoulder." Similarly, Slate.com blogger Mickey Kaus wrote of Michelle Obama: "For whatever reason, she sure seems to have a non-trivial chip on her shoulder and it`s not a winning quality." Additionally, referring to a February 16 Newsweek profile, VDARE.com contributor Steve Sailer wrote that Michelle Obama "sounds like she`s got a log-sized chip on her shoulder from lucking into Princeton due to affirmative action."

After this they list everything Steve Sailer said that they don`t like, in what I guess is an attempt o hang it on Tucker Carlson.Well, Google shows 746,000 uses of this common phrase, using a wildcard search that will allow for "a chip on his/her/it`s/their" shoulder, which dates back to 1830, and only half of them refer to Michelle Obama. (I`m kidding about the half.)

But really, maybe Tucker, Mickey, and Steve all said the same thing because Michelle Obama gave them all the same impression.
