Numero Uno, plus 84: That’s still #1 by Chicago Rules

I just want to give you a heads up on next week; it’s going to be very busy, so rest up this weekend. We have a lot we’re going to have to slog through.

Here’s the line-up:

Tuesday: Guinness Book of World Records will be in the House (South Lawn, technically) to document Lady M’s biggest ever Jumping Jack contest.

MO last seen jumping jacks in Harlem last November with wee members of the Police Athletic League. Before that, it was in Mexico where we combined it with an amateur levitation demonstration:

I don’t know, I’m a little wary of this event. The whole affair sounds like another…

All I can say is “God bless them for their spontaneity. It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.” I just hope it isn’t going to be as dirty and smelly as that spontaneous, young, focused and effective OWS flash mob.

Following the Herculean jumping jack feat, Lady M is going to show up later that evening to deliver the keynote at not one, butt two separate DNC fundraisers! So don’t anyone tell me that this woman isn’t the workhorse on this team.

Then on Thursday, Lady M will be hosting yet another State Dinner: this one for the President and First Lady of the Republic of Korea. As if that in itself wouldn’t be enough to give most hostesses the vapors, MO will be spending most of the day before her big party entertaining the Republic of Korea's First Lady Kim Yoon-ok with the obligatory visit to a local high school musical. Sure, it’s a lot of extra effort, butt gauging by previous reactions, these events are always a big hit.

One last bit of news: when Big Guy heard that his favorite football team of all time, the championship 1985 Chicago Bears, got cheated out of their Big White Super Bowl Champion party due to the tragic Challenger explosion, he was determined to right this inequality. So, 25 years later, the team was feted in the Rose Garden yesterday for their long ago victory.

And as is traditional, they presented Big Guy with his very own Chicago Bears jersey. Unfortunately, the latest favorability poll results were released just prior to the celebration. As a result, the Bears jersey reflects a continuation of the falling numbers

that we first reported on just yesterday.
