Hopefully, we're nearing the end of the news cycles in which we'll hear about Sandra Fluke's tail...er, tale...that she can't afford birth control. Or rather that she can afford it, but doesn't think it's fairzy-wairzy for her to pay for it when there are still rich people eating hot meals and sleeping indoors.
Frankly, Hope n' Change is beyond sick of all this nonsense. At yesterday's news conference, when Barack Obama could have been talking about knifing Israel in the back, the job market from Hell, and the ongoing search for a number bigger than "trillions" to describe the debts he's running up, reporters instead asked him for his opinion of Rush Limbaugh referring to Ms. Fluke as a "slut" (for which Rush subsequently apologized).
"I thought about Malia and Sasha," the president answered - although why the word "slut" made him think of them is none of our business. Hey, he's the one who suggests they could be "punished with a baby" for sleeping around - we don't even know them!
The president added that if his girls are ever called before Congress to testify (which we're giving better than even odds), he wouldn't "want them attacked or called horrible names when they’re being good citizens."
Unlike Sarah Palin, presumably, who was called a "c*nt" and "tw*t" by Bill Maher, who just gave Barry $1 million with which to run attack ads on Republicans. Of course, there's NO WAY that Obama would keep money from a man who thinks so little of women (like his wife and daughters), so he's giving it all back. When Hell freezes over.
But for now, since there are really no big issues facing the nation other than the occasional use of coarse language, Barack Obama has agreed to school us all in civility...and says he'll do so through "leading by example."
No doubt so that the people he sneeringly calls "teabaggers" will learn some manners.
