First Couple Brown Baggin' It

Hat Tip: Oddly Enough

Blog Guy, I saw a picture of the President and Michelle Obama out on the town on Valentine’s Day, and she was carrying a brown paper bag. What would the first lady be doing with a bag?

This is very sensitive, so don’t tell anybody else, but you know the so-called “Nuclear Football” the President always has with him in case he gets mad and wants to nuke some country?

Sure. Everybody has heard of that.

Well, they carry that around in a brown paper bag, and sometimes he lets Michelle hold it so his hands are free to wave and smoke and stuff.

Wow! I had no idea!

Exactly. That’s how it’s supposed to be. Sometimes the President lets his daughters carry it around, too, because it’s a pretty neat gizmo.

The girls? I have to say that makes me nervous.

Don’t worry. The girls have been warned not to press that shiny red button.

I can't help but feel sorry for the poor schmucks who made reservations at the restaurant for a special Valentine's Day with their loved one, only to have it ruined by a selfish, attention seeking "first couple". The security entourage, the media hangers on, all of the attention. They keep saying how important "date night" is to them. It's important to other people, too.

Of course, I won't even go into the audacity of flying Air Force One from Washington to Chicago at a cost of who knows how much while telling us how dire the economic situation is.
