M.O.'s "thrifty" dress: blowing wind up your skirt

It's Friday night and the media is still buzzing about the outfit Michelle Obama wore for her Wednesday morning media blitz... because it allegedly cost her a mere $35. A bargain-hunter myself, I was pretty impressed with the dress (and the pricetag) she chose to wear on Regis & Kelly and the Today show. So many people have been searching for her dress online that the newsmags are still talking about where to find it.

Last night, however, I was pretty dismayed to learn on Inside Edition that the dress (from H&M) is actually sleeveless and that her "stylist" added sleeves to it. Now, I'm no math major, but if she bought another dress to add sleeves, then it's no longer a $35 dress. And having a stylist isn't considered thrifty. Just sayin'.

Just Another Joke

In honor of the first session of the 112th Congress... I give you, a joke:

I recently asked my neighbor's little girl what she wanted to be when she
grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her parents,
liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were President
what woudl be the first thing you would do?"

She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people." Her
parents beamed with pride.

"Wow... what a worthy goal," I told her. "But, you don't have to wait until
you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn,
pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take over to the
grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to
use toward food and a new house."

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the
eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and to the work, and you
can just pay him the $50?"

I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

Her parents still aren't speaking to me.
