There's damn little I can read in the New York Times without gagging, but this article in which Michelle Obama talks about ol' Barak Hussein's bedroom habits -- some of them, anyway -- sinks to a new low.
She reveals that he's "snore-y and stinky," and even his kids can't stand to be near him in the mornings. Way to go, Michelle.
I have slept with women who snored, you damn betcha, and some of them were -- at certain times -- more than a little odoriferous. They could outdo me easily in both respects.
But I am too nice to name names.
Women, clearly, do not feel bound by the same constraints. They have to belittle men by giving them unpleasant nicknames and revealing foibles that make them look oafish, goatish, loutish, and sometimes downright unpleasant.
I, for one, and getting fed up with it.
An ex-girlfriend did that to me once, revealing a (very occasional) nocturnal affliction of mine to some friends. It hastened her departure.
I'm sure there are times when Mrs Obama is not the picture of desire or hygiene either, but I am also sure Mr Obama would not be so crude as to make them public.
Granted, I think the man stinks as a politician, but am perfectly willing to ignore his personal habits, one and all. Ditto, by the way, for Hillary Clinton; the mere thought of what she is like in the bedroom -- in any respect -- makes me break out in hives.
I've known women like this. They can be insufferably nasty about men, while making themselves out to be sweet little angels who never put a foot wrong in life.
Damn it, the next time I catch one of them in the act of dissing dudes, I'm going to be very, very tempted to respond in kind.
But I won't. I'm a gentleman. Hell, I'm not even going to say what word first pops into my mind when I think of Michelle Obama. I'll just say I'd hate like hell to be married to her.
Men are not all pigs, not by a long shot. And women are not all the little trod-upon waifs with hearts of gold and permanently magnolia-scented bodies they make themselves out to be.
It's a lesson I wish some women would learn.
But the "Snore-y, stinky" Obama story is perfectly in keeping with the NYT's sleazy editorial policies. I'm sure they wish they could have gotten the wife of a Republican candidate to shoot off her big mouth the same way.
