Overheard on my computer

"(Michelle Obama) must prove she loves America, as opposed to Republicans, who everyone knows love America -- they just hate half the people living in it."
-- Jon Stewart (The Daily Show: August 26, 2008)

Only half? Jon Stewart is being very charitable.

Ha! Such a great line, and sadly, so true.

I've never understood why americans give so much importance to the presidential wives.

More or less for the same reason anyone cares about Prince Philip. The president is the head of state, a different role than that of prime minister. As head of state we expect, rightly or wrongly, our presidents to be reflections of ourselves or the selves that we want to think we are. In that, we want to think that we have pretty wives and really cute children.
