OK, a quick departure from Olympics (well, actually, this post does discuss Michelle Obama, part of the Chicago 2016 Olympic bid delegation, so there is a five-ringed connection of sorts).
I just read the Reuters report about the First Lady's upcoming segment on the season premiere of "Sesame Street."
To promote nutrition and healthy diet, Mrs. Obama will teach young viewers about planting fruits and vegetables. This seems pretty cool to me.
Given the Red State responses (in media report comments) to President Obama's decision to head to Copenhagen for the Olympic bid, or the recent headlines regarding Obama speaking directly to school children across the U.S., I'm bracing for the Senate Minority response.
Screaming, ludicrous headlines coming to a conservative network or website soon include ...
"Michelle Obama To Plant Seeds of Deceit and Left Agenda on Leftist PBS Program!"
"Ketchup-Gate! First Lady Plants Tomatoes With Big Bird To Help Teresa Heinz Re-Enter Political Arena"
"Obamas Want Cookie Monster to Devour Childrens' Brains!"
"Snuffleupagus (think Rep. logo/symbol) Leaves GOP To Roam Obama Garden"
Any to add?
