(Newser) – Michelle Obama will attend Saturday's funeral for Hadiya Pendleton, the Chicago teen killed not long after performing at President Obama's inauguration, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Alongside Obama will be adviser Valerie Jarrett and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, also Chicagoans, reports the Tribune. No arrests have been made in the shooting, but a $40,000 reward remains. Police think the 15-year-old got shot accidentally amid a turf war between gangs.

Imagine how surprised I was that a story about the First Lady would bring out the dumb right wing racists vomiting their hate. You see it's a triple headed they can be racist, misogynist and , anti-dem. But can you actually imagine being one of these sad balls of hate, that actually get off attacking the First Lady. I just can't visualize what dead, angry lives these empty husks lead. You would think if you were a pathetic coward you would hide that fact. But Noooo.
