It would seem Barack Obama’s biggest liability is his wife’s tongue. In her latest gaffe, she declared that “for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction.”

As John Podhoretz points out, Michelle Obama is 44 years old. She was an adult in 1982. Is this really the first time she’s been proud of her country? Did it really take her husband’s apparent electoral ascendancy to make her proud of her country?

God bless Laura Bush. Can you imagine her saying something like this?
