Does Michelle Obama have the largest staff of any First Lady? No . . .

You probably have gotten the e-mail that claims Michelle Obama has the largest staff of any First Lady.  Either you dismissed it as great sour grapes, or you may have given it a moment’s consideration before hitting delete.

Did you wonder whether the charge is true?  Mudflats, the great blog from Alaska, tracked down the sources.  Mudflats’ discoveries are well worth the read.  You may want to bookmark that site for the next time you get the e-mail.  You know there will be a next time.

Wall of shame:  Sites that pass on the gossip as fact

    Have any evidence to back your claim, Susan?

    And you going to chide the Republicans for their disinterest in the American people?

    What’s the additional cost for Michelle Obama’s date nights over Laura Bush’s?

    What stimulus money didn’t go exactly as the Congress directed it, exactly as the bill George Bush signed?

    This first lady costs the tax payers a fortune with her elitist tastes in date nights alone. With so many unable to put food on their tables because of high unemployment rates due to her husband’s disinterest in the American people, you would think that she could tone it down a little. They could at least be as sneaky about it as obama tried to be about signing most of the ‘stimulus’ money over to earmarks!

    So first it was Obama’s “Czars” and now it’s the First Lady’s staff.

    Obviously the Republicans have nothing of substance to go after so they’re going after nonsense.
