Obama: Talk about my wife and get dropped

Wassup, Y'all!

Just caught a quick interview on GMA this morning featuring Robin Roberts with Smooth and 'Chelle Obama where Rob-Rob brought up the fact that the Tennessee GOP has been airing a video which continues to distort 'Chelle's patriotism. When questioned about whether she's ready to see more of the same when the general election heats up, Smooth immediately jumped in and laid out in no uncertain terms that he's having none of that.

Smooth said, "The GOP, should I be the nominee, can say whatever they want to say about me, my track record - if they think they're gonna try and make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful because I find that unacceptable." He went on to say, "Whoever is in charge of the Tennessee GOP needs to think long and hard about the kind of campaign they want to run...these folks should lay off my wife - all right?" You could tell the topic pissed him off but he ended the comment with a smile and paused a couple seconds before finishing with "just in case they're watching"....

That type of exchange at least ought to at least pull in a few more votes from the Shorty Coalition. Shorties always love when a homey stands up for his boo - especially publicly - and this morning, if you could read body language as expertly as ol Ty, you pretty much knew that if the chairman of the Tennessee GOP was in the house, ol boy would have gotten dropped. There would have been some mischievous mayhem going on.

That said, I find it interesting that a recent Washington Times / Rasmussen poll, which asked the question, "Which mother had the most positive influence on America?", showed that Citizen McCain's wife Cruella Cindy came in last with 4% of the vote. Ol girl even polled behind Marge Simpson (9%) - the fictional cartoon mother on The Simpsons. That's gotta hurt.

Anyway, since it's Monday and I know y'all need a little humor to get your week started right, I thought you'd like to see what a fictional IM exchange between 'Chelle and Cindy looked like shortly after the poll results were released.

That stuff prolly isn't too far from the truth :-)
