Another year, another Super Bowl, another mega-million-buck icon screws up the Star Spangled Banner. What is it about icons anyway – they can’t seem to get the simplest things right.
It wasn’t really such a big deal: "O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming," sounds a lot like "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last gleaming." Butt for future reference, Xtina, one little word: TOTUS.
Everyone at the Big White Super Bowl par-tay was too busy noshing and hobnobing to notice the little slip up. Unclear whether any of them would have noticed even if they hadn’t been schmoozing.
There was a lot of praying going on in the Big White last night. You’re probably thinking “people praying for their team to pull it out.” Or maybe Big Guy praying that the Egypt situation would just go away (looks like that one’s in the bag – our supportive media have pretty much pushed the mute button on that issue).
No, the prayers were from the guests invited to the BW Super Bowl XLV party: they were praying they weren’t going to be served Lady M’s special organic garden menu: rutabaga, turnip and collard green canapes, quinoa and tofu burgers with radish sprouts, 5 bean salad and MO’s famous zero transfat and sugar-free brownies. Thankfully, there was divine intervention and the final menu was filled with all-American favorites.
Official Big White Super Bowl Party Menu

Lady M was observed enjoying the party fare, but was unavailable for comment.
Big White Super Bowl Spread:
P.S. according to the Chicago Sun Times, “the White House Super Bowl menu does not conflict with (Lady M’s) healthy-eating drive because she has always allowed for lapses when it comes to food-we-love-but-is-bad-for-us, with instructions that junky eats be consumed rarely and in moderation.”
So there’s your sound bite: "Sarah Palin and Lady M agree on Big White Super Bowl party menu.” Proof positive that football is non-partisan.
