Ann Atlhouse nailed it.
Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad’s lap, cheering on Olga and Nadia, Carl Lewis, and others for their brilliance and perfection.
As the first comment at the video notes, Michelle was 20 when Carl Lewis first participated in the Olympics, so that dad’s lap business is easily detected bullshit.
Like so many young people, I was inspired. I found myself dreaming that maybe, just maybe, if I worked hard enough, I, too, could achieve something great.
But I never dreamed that the Olympic flame might one day light up lives in my neighborhood.
yada, yada, yada………go read the full monty at Ann’s blog
If you’re not reading The Crawdad Hole, you’re UNinformed. The best of the left and right, and definitely the in-betweeners, where thinking heads are scratched daily.

MO fun links too, add them 🙂
Having fun now 🙂
It would be one act, the Final Act. I would resurrect Jennifer Holliday to play lead, Michelle Obama, The Final Act. Scene. January 2013. White House budget staff and personal assistants delivers the news to Ms Obama…she’s been replaced by First Dude 😉
Curtain down. Buh’bye Michelle 🙂
From NoKidsFatBehind(tm), aka rob the poor to feed the poor, through her 63k solo trip to Hawaii, it’s been an incredible year for the First Hypocrite Fashionista JackieO Wannabe 😉
With apologies to “Wanda”.
I love this man, but…..wait, what?
Stop complaining about the cost of Obama’s trip to India; it’s worth every penny
….and stop grousing about the cost of his Asia trip
As a now recovering-dribbling-foaming-at-the-mouth-clueless-of-truth-and-facts liberal, I always liked Charles’ opinions, he never talked down to me and I always learned a conservative point or two that “my team” was missing. Though my grousing habits are hard to shake from my blonde bimbo daze, I’ll try and do better….like ABC and CBS.
Or El WaPo.
However, there is still Michelle, so I grouse from the center-right these days 🙂
