Spent the better part of the morning putting my house together, weeding the garden, and picking tomatoes, so I can’t tell you how delighted I am to turn my computer on and see that once again, the hot topic among our pundit classes is where the President and his wife vacations.
I find all of this exceedingly depressing. It was stupid when we counted the Bush days off, it is stupid when we wonder where Obama is, and it takes things to a new level of stupid when we worry about where the First Lady is spending her free time. It’s just a special degree of pettiness from the village harlots.
The idea that these guys are doing nothing but vacationing is idiotic. They are never truly on vacation, and there is a reason they all come into office looking like McCaulay Culkin and leave office just a few years later looking like Keith Richards. Just make it stop.
