Another Public Servant in the Big White

We don’t talk about Grammy in public very often. For one reason, until this article came out, none of us were quite sure if she was here of her own free will or not. Especially since the only thing on record was her comment last year on CBS' "Sunday Morning:" "They're dragging me with them, and I'm not comfortable with that."

Sure, MO still tries to boss her around like SHE is in charge, but Grammy just ignores her and does as she pleases. I guess that’s where Lady M gets it.

Anyway, we don’t like to talk too much about Grammy being here, because there are always a bunch of right wing nuts looking to criticize the O’s for the least little thing. But I ask you, does it make sense to think that someone as busy as Lady M would have time to raise her own children? Are you kidding me? Don’t you know what Lady M is doing for our country? She is busy mentoring other peoples children, saving America’s children from obesity and supporting the entire American fashion industry practically single handedly. So let’s not begrudge MO dragging Grammy, kicking and screaming, from her little bungalow in Chicago to the Big White.


She’s doing it for the children, after all.
