  1. Okay, now, wait a moment. I saw the DrudgeReport headline, “First Lady Admits: ‘Fortunately, We Have Help From The Media'” and followed it to the Real Clear Politics page titled “Michelle Obama: ‘Fortunately, We Have Help From The Media,'” and I have to say, this is taken out of context disingenuously. (Although, as a standalone statement, Pete, you’re certainly right about the understatement!)

    MO was asked about how the family is preparing for the (actually the interviewer said “vicious”) campaign ahead, and FLotUS responded that the press has been nice to leave their girls alone. There’s nothing wrong with that. Of course, as Palin wrote (hilariously) about media treatment of her small N Korea gaffe versus the knuckle-headed errors they’ve let slide with O’Bama and A’Bidin, it would be nice if the media treatment were even-handed in their treatment of political folks’ kids. Or even Palin’s!

      Drudge is notorious for ripping headlines out of context. Occassionally I’ll correct him, me and probably a hundred other people, and they change it.
      Oh, and welcome! 😀

      2- Even though I see your point in those examples, I still don’t think we have to consider it to be taken out of context when it is such an obvious, obnoxious fact of life we have to endure daily, whether in this particular situation, or not?
      3- Pete – I rarely comment to or on you, but I even more rarely don’t smile all the way through reading your comments. Thanks so much for my daily dose of laughs (though I kind of get depressed when I follow the links)

        “depressed” … And that’s why the laughs and kind words and garden pics and uber cutie pie mascots are SO important here!

      • To be clear, I certainly wasn’t on Pete’s case! And, Integrity, so true “it is such an obvious, obnoxious fact of life we have to endure daily”! Just saying Drudge and Real Clear were playing loose, and it behooves us to stay true and not play the other side’s twisted gotcha games. My main point was, it’s fine if the media is nice to the Obama babies. The real hypocrisy in the story is not the out-of-context gotcha quote (which is, after all, funny, in case I forgot to LOL) but that the courtesy toward family MO spoke of is (along with all the other LaughingStock Media biases) not even-handed. If one of the Obama girls stuck her tongue out like one of the Bush girls once did, would we ever see the pic?

        Thanks for the welcome, Dee, and Integrity, and Chrissy on that other thread. Nice place. Mrs W was just complimenting the decor. Glad to bee here.

          ITA – “it behooves us to stay true and not play the other side’s twisted gotcha games.”

          Besides that we should be better than they are (we do claim to be the grown-ups, after all! LOL), the people we need to vote our way are the ones who, IMHO, are most thoughtful, even-handed, and nice. IOW, they are the most likely to be TURNED OFF by mud slinging.

          I recently sent an Ann Coulter column out and got back a disturbed reply from someone who didn’t know that Coulter is a satirist. I remember having the same reaction when I first encountered her work and refused to read her stuff for a while.

          Then someone I respect remarked she is “the best conservative satirist out there” and I realized, DUH ME, I was reading her like she was a pundit when I should be reading her like she’s a political cartoonist who uses words instead of pictures.

          Drudge is supposed to be a news source though. Seems they should be a tad cautious about snarky headlines.

    Don’t kill me ya’ll, but I’m feeling a bit like Colby King these days when it comes to Michelle Bachmann, she says as she ducks for cover……We say things just as bad about Michelle Obama and Nancy Pelosi, and I am starting to just plain long dislike Ms. Bachmann, so I don’t quite see it as a sexist comment, and it is not the kind of language I like to support, but I get the contempt behind it.
