Elizabeth Lauten to Sasha and Malia Obama: Try Showing a Little Class!!!

by at .  Updated at .

Elizabeth Lauten, an aide to a Tennessee Congressman, is under fire for posting a Facebook rant calling out the daughters of U.S. President Barack Obama.

Following the POTUS' annual pardoning of a Thanksgiving turkey - a silly but harmless White House tradition - Lauten tore into his two teenage girls.

Sasha and Malia Obama were apparently not as transfixed by the pardon ceremony as this Congressional aide would have appreciated, thankyouvermuch.

Lauten, obviously, took to Facebook to lecture the pair:

"Dear Sasha and Malia, I get your both in those awful teen years but you're a part of the First Family. Try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play."

"Then again, your mother and father don't respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I'm guessing you're coming up a little short in the 'good role model' department."

"Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot in a bar."

Yeah. Possibly a bit over the line at the end there.

The communications director for Rep. Steven Fincher (R) and one-time media manager for the Republican National Committee soon felt the backlash.

After being called "mean," "thoughtless," "ignorant," and many more things not suitable for print on a family celebrity gossip website, Lauten apologized.

"After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents, and re-reading my words online," she said she wished she had not make the controversial comments.

"I can see more clearly just how hurtful my words were," an apologetic Lauten said. "Please know, those judgmental feelings truly have no place in my heart."

The original post has either been deleted or made private.

All in all, it's just further proof that partisan bitterness can't even take Thanksgiving off. Can't we all just get along? Or at least rant against something universally reviled?

You know, like Michelle Obama's healthy school lunches?
