  • I thought this post was pretty funny. My wife thought it was a bad precedent to set while still engaged.

    Great piece. I knew something was freaky about the Michelle Obama article — the affected domesticity, the single-minded calorie focus, the idea that personal food choices are a patriotic duty — but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, and Kerry nailed it.

    Good for your son. He sounds like a smart kid.

    Great to see that Kerry will share her wisdom over at the XX Factor. Having the First Lady give us domestic blow-by-blows is a further attempt to Oprah-ize of our daily lives, this time via the White House. Sadly, millions will hang on every word (just as they would follow Michelle if she Twittered about this crap).

    Someone! Please make it stop!
