Youser! That was some game, no?
The crowd did a bit of trash talking, too, booing the first couple after the first lady playfully rebuffed Obama’s advances when they were featured on the “Kiss Cam” on Verizon Center’s overhead scoreboard.
Hold the phone – incoming from Obama campaign central, calling for an instant replay:
The Obamas did share a couple of public kisses in the second half, the first of which elicited some cheers and chants of “four more years!” (Notably, the White House press pool, which had been moved from the arena to vans before the second kiss, was led back into the arena in time to witness the smooch, according to a pool report.)
Everybody was happy before we got that call:
Then we got the call from Plouffe-Daddy: Lady M’s shyness was making us look bad. Ann never would have rebuffed Mitt like that.
So, back to the arena, hard working press corpse, we called for a replay:
What the heck, you’ve been working hard, let’s have one more for the road – you’re not driving.
All righty then – everyone’s happy now!
Well, not everyone:
Just every Won who counts:
Oh. My. Dear. Lord. What have I done?
I’m sorry, that’s all I can do for you today. It’s not that I’m hiding in shame, it’s just that Raj is having a little hand surgery today in order to preserve his ability to remain our magic nerd, and he needs a driver. Lady M volunteered, butt she’s still a little hung over so I’m taking him myself.
Till tomorrow…at which time I hope you can forgive me.
