    • Why?

    • So you’ll skip the entire finale for what’s probably no more than a 30 second cameo? That’s super mature of you!

    • I’m sure the First Lady will be quite hurt.

      • I sense sarcasm, and it doesn’t matter. The only person she cares about anyway is herself.

    • If you are that anti Michelle Obama, then clearly you are not a real Leslie Knope/Parks and Rec fan

    Well, it seems our first lady & her husband will be ending their acting in the white house, but will be beginning their new career as the Simpson’s…

  • I love when they do stuff like this because it makes Leslie seem so real. I love the entire cast but I would love to see a version where Leslie (and Ben)actually makes it to Washington with a new supporting cast/staff.

  • Matt, I am so disgusted by some of the comments on this site. Michelle Obama is the First Lady of the United States and she should be afforded that respect. She is a gracious First Lady and I am glad that Parks and Rec will be having her on. Her “Let’s Move Campaign” is a wonderful thing for all the children of our country.

  • My only issue with the political cameos is I absolutely could not buy Leslie and Ann being so hot for Joe Biden. In that vein, we’ll find out in the finale that Leslie has a girl crush on Michelle Obama. If they really want to impress me, we’ll see Ron struggle to be polite despite his disdain for the Obamas.

  • Forget the drama above, can we talk about the issue as to why Parks is ending its Season early (i.e. before May)?

  • Awesomesauce! now I’ve got an hour to kill with much funnier (and WAYYYY less political) Cougar Town reruns that night!
