Right, for those of you not addicted to the 24-hour news cycle — Michelle Obama got quoted saying that, due to her husband’s success, this is the “first time” she has ever been proud of her country.
Oh, man, was that stupid.
Here’s all she had to do — change the wording of the phrase to:
“This is the proudest I’ve ever been of my country.”
Or anything along those lines.
The 24-hour news cycle will guarantee this story goes away, but what the hell, might as well blog while the blogging’s still good.
