Here’s the link to the official White House communiqué (to prove I’m not making this up). I like how the serious politicos ignore the crap spewed by Oppenheimer&Co and recognize a vibrant democracy that has a free and independent press. No word on whether Studmuffin made any comments about the foxiness of Michelle or whether The Hawaiian got defensive and told The Muffin to back the hell off.
