You’re Kidding!

From the end of the NBC Nightly News (3/3/09):

CHUCK TODD: And finally, let’s close with Michelle Obama. Amazing numbers for a new first lady.Sixty-three percent positive rating. What makes it more remarkable, six months ago you and I were talking about at the Democratic Convention, she might be a liability if he’s not careful. She’s no liability.

Wait a second–you mean that some of the inane chatter heard in corporate media has no relationship to reality?!?! Thatis “remarkable.”
