News, but not the serious kind
Honey, was that the doorbell? Could you see who it is, please?
Yeah. He’s here for some kind of a surprise inspection of our Christmas decorations.
Oh crap, it’s decoration inspection time already? Quick, put a plate of shiny Christmas balls on the table, and I’ll get our holiday mugs. Maybe that”ll satisfy him.
Where’s that damned little tree, and that snowman for the wall?
Well, he IS the president, so be patient. Say, why did you put out that extra Christmas place mat?
Hey Blog Guy, I saw a picture of President Obama browsing in a Washington, DC bookstore. That’s pretty cool, isn’t it, that the president is such a devoted reader?

Maybe, maybe not. That item ran on Monday, so let’s see where the Obama motorcade would have taken us on that very day.
Readers of this blog know I have little patience with “stories” that not only state the obvious, but find it necessary to deliver the information in list form, for folks who are intimidated by paragraphs.
Do you believe this, Michelle?
I’m the president, and I’m pulling my own pumpkins!
Pulling your pumpkins from the patch to the plane?
Where’s the presidential pumpkin puller?
In Pacific Palisades.
Presidential Pumpkin Puller Peter Piper is in Pacific Palisades?
Poop! That explains why I had to pick my own peck of pickled peppers!
Bottom right: Michelle Obama looks at red pepper she pulled from the White House Kitchen Garden during the fall season harvest in Washington, October 5, 2011.
Blog Guy, nobody has better connections to the 2012 political campaigns than you do. I’ve heard that President Obama has chosen his official campaign slogan for the presidential race.
I presume it’s “Yes we can,” since that worked so well for him in 2008?
