I'm not one to usually watch news shows, but I do occasionally flip and catch the funny parts of Countdown with Keith Olberman. Tonight I was flipping through and caught some guy on CNN (i think) about to have a cow because Mrs. Obama put her hand on the queen's back and that they gave her an ipod.
Now, if this guy was British, I'd be able to forgive it a little, but to the best of my knowledge, he was as American as warm apple pie. I'm totally dumbfounded as to how and why people are making such a big deal out of this. To hear him talk, they tried to assassinate the queen. So what if Mrs. Obama made a slip in etiquette. Can any of us say they haven't slipped up when they had to use their better etiquette? I think not.
As far as the ipod goes. I'm sure we all have given a present to someone that they already have. It happens and isn't that big of a deal. No need to cause a big fuss over it. However, since there are those still bitter about the election, can't stand Obama, and will do any and everything to bring him down, they find the smallest thing, pounce on it and turn it into a "news" story.
There are more important things to report on than this, such as the grass growing!
