Shhh! You Aren't Supposed to Talk About It

Michelle Obama is going to be making three campaign stops in Kentucky today, but even if she says something incredibly inflammatory or depressed, her husband requests, nay, demands that only the positive be aired.

Will it work? Who knows, but one thing is certain: if he doesn't want us to talk about her, he can tell her to leave the campaign trail and go back to the Hundred Acre Wood.

Chicago. I meant Chicago.

Now this may be over the top.

"Hundred Acre Wood", now that is funny.

Since I disagree with Obama on hope and change, patriotism, respect for the symbols of America and the US military, business regulation, redistribution of wealth, global warming, activist judges, Iraq War, labor unions, NAFTA, affirmative action, illegal immigration, defense policy, appeasing tyrants, motor voter, voter ID, abortion on demand, freedom of speech, gun control, FISA, black liberation theology and other racist ideologies, earned income tax credit, capital gains and windfall profit taxes, gas tax, socialized medicine, political correctness, gay rights, hate crimes, multiculturalism and moral equivalence, I must be a racist.

Tell ya what... I'll lay off Michelle Obama if:

1) The Obama campaign doesn't comment on anything any of the other spouses of candidates say... including Mr. Clinton.

2) Michelle stops putting herself in the public eye and making asinine comments.

Otherwise, she's fair game.

Pot, meet Kettle.

"Unless John McCain's idea of being a different kind of Republican means disrespecting the voters by denying them the right to examine the links between his political career and the McCains' business ventures, he should immediately release Cindy McCain's tax returns," said Democratic National Committee spokesman Damien LaVera.

See point 1 in my comment above.

People have been taking shots at Hillary for 16 years now. Deal with it, Barry. Or, you could do the smart thing and keep her away from the microphone.

I dont see what Cindy McCains tax returns have to do with what comes out of Michelle Obamas mouth. As far as I know,she hasnt been stumping for her husband at rallys or anything,like that other woman.

Speaking of candidates' spouses, anybody heard from Bill lately?

1903, the point is the scrutiny of Presidential candidate's spouses. If Obama's spouse is to be exempt, is she the only one, or does the same standard apply to all candidate's spouses?

Not to mention the fact that Obama lacks any power to stop any American from saying whatever he/she/it likes about Michelle. It's called the First Amendment, Barry. Get used to it.
