My hometown supervisors again set up The City for national ridicule and general hilarity, this time with the ban on Mcdonald’s Happy Meal toys.

But… when even the Daily Show is pointing and laughing – you’d think our Supes might get a clue.

President Obama on the Daily Show

By mw | Related entries in Barack, Comedy, Media, Obama

Barack Obama sat down for an interview on The Daily Show. I thought it was more enlightening than most “real news” interviews I’ve seen and an entertaining give and take. As is often the case these days, the harshest post-mortem criticism of the presidential performance seemed to come from the left.

We know why NMA selected her for this treatment. It is because watching our media, NMA determined she must be a big story. The real question – Why is she such a big story here? Why is she getting so much new and old media attention that she pops up on the NMA meme radarscope?
