Has it come to this pass that we have to specifically single out and praise a First Lady for acting like all 44 of her predecessors? Or that silence about a person of the opposite party implies contempt? If so, oy.

But, yeah, here ’Puter’s right. Mrs. Obama has been a nice face for the administration, even given the queen-grabbing faux pas, and her omnipresent biceps.

That said, given the Holy First Family’s fawning press coverage, she could be killing hobos and using their marrow for smoothies, and you’re never going to hear about it…

And the Mandarin will get his own account if and when the Antient & Noble &c. approve of it and subject him to the Ordeal. But he’s done some nice work, I gotta say.
