In an otherwise sound column about Michelle Obama, Michelle Malkin concludes with this howler:
Like Lady Macbeth, Lady Michelle and her defenders protest too much.
But Lady Macbeth didn’t “protest too much.” The line comes from Hamlet, when Hamlet’s mother observes that the queen in the play she, Hamlet and Claudius are watching “protests too much.” Besides, we need to get our story straight–Hillary Clinton is Lady Macbeth, while Michelle Obama is clearly auditioning for the role of Goneril.
P.S. On a random Lear-related note, I heartily recommend the BBC production Second Generation for a British desi adaptation of the classic.
