We interrupt Covers Month for the following partisan squee-fest. I’ve been off the politics this month, because a) Jesus it’s depressing out there and b) my strengths are: media studies, presentation theory, political strategy and comprehension of spin, whereas my weaknesses are: math. So a lot of this bailout-y stimulus plan stuff goes right over my little head. Elections I’m good for, because it’s all media strategy, and I know enough about spin to know that Obama didn’t cause this crisis any more than the Captain of the Titanic made it chilly that night.
However, I feel that it is important to break my self-imposed silence on political affairs on this Easter Sunday, because our long national nightmare is over: the Obama girls finally got a puppy!
His name is Bo (as in Bo Diddley). He’s a Portugese Water Dog, gifted by Sen. Kennedy (D-MA) himself. And I wuv this widdle guy and his widdle nose.
I mean, look: he’s got Hawaiian leis on! Because the President’s from Hawaii! That is so coooooooool!
Ahem. Carry on.
