Michelle Obama chides us

Michelle Obama has some advice for voters.

Michelle Obama says voters need to decide this election by examining the issues, not because they like a candidate or think "she's cute."

Obama spoke in Charlotte on Thursday morning at a women's round-table on economic issues. The crowd roared at her remark disparaging voters who might cast a ballot because of a woman's looks, a clear jab at Republican vice presidential pick Sarah Palin.

Obama tried to clarify her remark with a smile, saying she was talking about herself.

For the record: Michelle Obama is not on any ballot. Apparently she's referring to her write-in candidacy for First Whiner.

So, is it a bridge too far if someone on the GOP side were to ask a crowd of people not to vote for someone simply because of their "funny name" or -- God forbid -- their skin color.

For the record: the funny name candidates I'm referring to can be found in this news report.
