I'm reasonably sure you didn't miss it, but yesterday, Mickey Obama pulled an… well, she pulled an "Obama," and said that people should vote for someone because someone is cute.
The crowd laughed and roared it's approval.
Why whoever could Michelob have been referring to?
Well, she immediately clarified: she was referring to HERSELF, she said.
And the crowd roared some more.
Thus the one who has not been seen on the campaign trail for quite some time owing to an acute attack of Foot In Mouth disease vaulted back onto the scene with a comment that not only showed she's not been cured, but which was outrageously presumptuous.
She thinks she's cute?
Let's see, I believe I once referred to her as "uniquely repulsive." Is that similar?
Or is it irrelevant? I mean, can't a woman be both cute and repulsive?
Certainly a number of actresses are. But Mickey's no actress, which is why it was clear to everyone that she wasn't referring to herself, but to Sarah Palin, just as her Alfred E. Newman lookin' spouse wasn't referring to any McCain idea when he dredged up the "lipstick on a pig" comment.
But the bigger problem is that Michelob is not now, nor has she likely ever been… cute!
Mean lookin'', angry lookin', it's almost too bad she isn't fat. Then people could legitimately say they think she'd be cute if she lost fifty pounds.
Besides, wouldn't NOW be outraged if some guy referred to one of it's members as cute? So has Mickey started a new feminist trend –
"Hi, I'm Mickey, I'm cute! I figured I'd tell you that because if you told me, one of my sistas would punch your lights out!"
Which is consistent with her husband's admonition also issued yesterday that people should "get in their faces."
Now I don't know about you, but women have tried that approach with me before, and I'm proud to say that when any chickie has gotten in my face in the past, I never thought, "Oh, she's cute, I'll wait till she stops to make my move."
All I could think about was getting her to stop by any means possible consistent with the number and friendliness (to me) of the witnesses.
Although it looks like Mama Obama could probably take me… and her husband too… at the same time!
On yet another front yesterday, Joe Biden (I didn't know he was still alive, did you?) said this:
"We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people."
Now that might sound awful to you, but I'm one of those middle-class people, and I want Joe Biden to know that while I'm not voting for him, my pocket is always open.
