BO’s Video Conference at Brandenburg

I have been inundated with questions about why Lady M and Big Guy didn’t attend today’s big 20th anniversary celebration at the Brandenburg Gate commemorating the end of communism. At least in Germany.

But come on, we’ve already been there, done that. Remember? It was one of our earliest campaign stops. While it seemed a bit odd at the time, since Germans couldn’t actually vote in the U.S. election, it makes more sense now that we know BO is “president to the world.”


Angie absolutely loves Big Guy, that’s why she went out of her way to invite him to today’s celebration. And I’m sure she understood how busy we all are around here. MO had to appear on the Sesame Street anniversary show – a little bigger over here than the dumb wall thing in Germany – and BO’s still celebrating last Saturday’s slick win with Toes and Nancy.

Besides, I’ve got to help MO pick out a more appropriate frock for the Fort Hood memorial service tomorrow. The last time she honored one of our fallen heroes there was simply no end to the criticism over the dress (which, I repeat for the millionth time, I advised her not to wear.)


We hope to do better this time.

But getting back to the Brandenburg flap: it’s not like we weren’t represented. Video tape. It’s a beautiful thing.

How cool is that! It reminded me of Big Guy’s acceptance speech at the Democratic convention way last year.

Got to love those classic columns. Communism is optional.
