Really, I think I may be ill.

I realize we live in a society where nothing is off limits in public conversation, but, really, this is more information than I want to know about another couple’s bedtime rituals.  And if that weren’t bad enough, the columnist’s swooning is more befitting of a 12 year old girl at a Justin Bieber concert than an actual adult talking about the President of the United States. Which explains so much, if you think about it.

Likeable But Stupid

After months of hearing nothing but awesome goodness about Michelle Obama, I honestly never though I’d hear her described as stupid, but that’s exactly what a top Illinois State Board of Elections official did upon hearing the news that Ms. Obama had likely engaged in some illegal electioneering at a polling place.

“You kind of have to drop the standard for the first lady, right?” the official explained late Thursday. “I mean, she’s pretty well liked and probably doesn’t know what she’s doing.”

Likeable? You be the judge.

Of course, he’s wrong. As a lawyer married to a lawyer-turned-politician, I think it’s highly likely that Ms. Obama is pretty well versed in the laws surrounding electioneering.


As for likeable, well, the jury is out on that one but there are days when I have my doubts.
