Fool Me Once…

CNN Political Ticker: Michelle Obama clarifies: I’ve always loved my country

Michelle Obama said Wednesday she has always loved America, seeking to quell the firestorm over her comment earlier in the week that seemed to suggest she is only now proud to be an American.

“What I was clearly talking about is that I am proud in how Americans are engaging in the political process,” Michelle Obama told CNN affiliate WJAR after a campaign event in Providence, Rhode Island. “I mean everyone has said what I said, in that we haven’t seen these record numbers of turnouts, people who are paying attention, going to rallies, watching debates.

“For the first time in my lifetime I am seeing people rolling up their sleeves in way that I haven’t seen and really trying to figure this out, and that’s the source of pride I was talking about,” she continued.

I think 2004’s Deaniacs (and 2006’s Lamont supporters) would want a word with you about that “explanation,” Michelle. Actually, if I was them, I’d take it as an insult to all the grassroots work the nutroots did to get your hubby as far as he’s come during this election cycle.

It was bad enough that first the Magic Negro had to defend his Princeton degree holding, Harvard Law graduating wannabe First Lady of the Nation as being… what? A language impaired girl (feminists are welcome to weigh in)?

But don’t tell me about what she “was clearly talking about” when she said the exact same thing at an appearance earlier the same day.

So don’t you and your husbandObamamessiah try to tell us to just ignore our lying ears and eyes; it was a canned line, embedded into your script. You used the line twice, and from watching the video, never hesitated in delivering it; not so much as a hiccup.

You said it, then repeated it; you own it.

Don’t you DARE say we ‘misinterpreted’ it. Take possession, and say either “I’m sorry, I misspoke screwed up” or “That’s what I really believe.”

But stop this spinning bullshit… and tell me why the hell your senior thesis, “Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community,” has been embargoed until the day after the 2008 Presidential Election?

What is THAT all about?

"All the news that’s fit to print"

Though, from this massive pile of "Oops! Our bad," it seems that, from the front page, through the business, science and sports sections, all the way down to the bowels of Arts and Leisure, those ‘layers’ of editors and j-school graduate ‘professional’ reporters have a hard time getting basic stuff–y’know, like names and facts–straight before they get placed on a page.

Really, how the hell do you write a band review and not know the name of the bass player you were watching play? At the least, the chick who took the pics should have made sure who was who, so she could get the captions right.
