Malia Obama: Dangerous, Radical, Liberal in Training

[Editor's Note: The blog format—scrolling posts—kinda sucks because good posts/comment threads/hard work gets buried too soon.
On the flip side, blogs are nimble and the software allows you to move posts right back to the top whenever you want.
And so, I'm happy to move yesterday's "OMG!Obama" column by PubliCola's inimitable CorrOspondent, ObamaNerd, right here back to the top. This shit is funny.
Similarly, it's easy to keep good stuff front and center with links. Check out the comments thread in yesterday's post about our interview with Sen. Cantwell's office.]
One perverse side effect of having Democrats in charge of everything is the delight I get in watching Republicans seek out scandal in every little thing a Democratic President does. Whether it's taking his wife out on a date (how dare he!) or the clothes his children wear. Yes. Clothing. Of his children.
Behold the newest 'Obama scandal' : Malia the radical anti-nuclear weapons, pro-peace liberal monster. While in Rome with her mom, Malia took to wearing not one (gay gasp!), but TWO (super gay gasp!!) T-shirts emblazoned with the peace symbol. Because Obama just convened talks and reached agreement with Russia about nuclear disarmament, this has caused a stir...with about 5 people with serious idle time issues and potential mental health concerns.
Radical right-wing nuts are calling Malia the "Adolescent National Security Advisor." Others accuse Michelle and Barack of "using her body as a canvas to express THEIR political will." Jesus Christ. It's a goddamn peace shirt. I wore one in the '80s with a little rainbow tie-dye and some pegged Z Cavaricci Jeans. And a mullet. While carrying a Trapper Keeper with magazine cutouts of Johnny Depp and Michael J Fox. That was far more troubling to our national security, don't you agree?
I don't know if many of you have 11-year-old girls these days. I have at least four in various states (Daddy loves you Pumpkins!), but it's pretty hard to tell them what to wear. It starts around age 7 and goes right thru their 20s. So nice try...
