Hard-hitting campaign reporting

What you expect from The Washington Post:
EUGENE, Ore. -- With temperatures hitting the 90s here today, Sen. Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, paused his campaign for an ice cream break. . . .
Obama, sleeves rolled up and collar open, immediately began surveying options that included Banana Brownie and Muddy River. He asked his aide, Reggie Love, what flavor he wanted. The former Duke basketball player said, "Bubble Gum."
"You're showing your age," Obama said with a smile, then asked for a taste of the Green Tea.
Michelle Obama didn't need to study the cases. She went with Chocolate. "I'm a purist," she said.
Obama settled on Mint Chip, "with a slice of Green Tea on the side."
Just got off the phone with the Pulitzer committee, and they agree with me. It's over. We've found our winner.


  1. Why does it not come as a surprise that Michelle Obama didn't order the vanilla ice cream.

  2. "Green Tea" ice cream can't be good for his anti-elitist image.

    Also, if Michelle were really a purist, why not vanilla?
