Sorry Michelle But The Thrill Is Gone

"Fortunately, we have help from the media. I have to say this: I am very grateful for the support and kindness that we've gotten. People have respected their privacy, and in that way, no matter what people may feel about my husband's policies or what-have-you, they care about children, and that's been good to see."

Mrs Obama's admiration of the media's supposed respect and love of children makes us wince.  I can't help but wonder who this lady is talking to, it surely isn't me or anyone that I know.  Where was Michelle Obama when the trials and tribulations of Sarah Palin's children was on the nightly news? 

As disconnected as she is, Mrs. Obama is right about one thing, and that is that the media has bent over backwards to help them.  Not just the Obama children but the Obama's themselves.

For Mrs. Obama, it's almost comical, there are not many first ladies who can get away with lecturing a nation on their unhealthy eating habits while carrying an extra thirty pounds of fat in their own ass.  

For Mr. Obama, where can we begin to start.  The harsh reality is that eligibility and meritocracy played second fiddle to the color of Barack Obama's skin and as such he will always be seen as America's first affirmative action president.

But for most of America, the thrill is gone.  We've done it!  We have overcome the scourge of racism that once plagued our country.  We elected a black president!   But now it is time to move on and hopefully the main-stream media that has coddled and protected Barack Obama will come to that realization as well.
