Pure adoration by the media and a bit of a reader challenge at the end of the post:
They both campaigned with President Obama to help him secure a second term. Now both First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Bill Clinton have landedGrammy nominations. Both are up in the Best Spoken Word Album category for the audio version of their booksAmerican Grown (Obama) and Back To Work: Why We Need Smart Government For A Strong Economy (Clinton). Clinton won the category in 2005 for his autobiography My Life, while Obama’s husband has topped it twice — for Dreams From My Father and The Audacity Of Hope. Obama and Clinton are facing two top TV personalities in the Best Spoken Word Album field — Ellen DeGeneres (Seriously… I’m Kidding) and Rachel Maddow (Drift: The Unmooring Of American Military Power).
This deification of the Obamas and the cloying praise heaped on them for doing the most simple of simple things borders on the praise handed over to the leaders in the old USSR – and currently with the cult of personality in North Korea. The fawning of the media over Michelle Obama is sickening.
This is a real book:
