things i love wednesday: stupid media

i love the fact that we have a new, young, black president, and yet, the only thing the media seems to care about is what kind of puppy the first family will be getting. a google search for "obama puppy" retrieves 6,320,000 hits, and while i'm sure not all of them specifically pertain to this issue, you can bet that a good 95% of them do. it's ridiculous, not only because the country has bigger fish to fry, but also just because it has no news merit. if this were the first time a dog would be entering the white house, perhaps i could stomach a news story or two about it. but various presidential families have introduced dogs, cats and even an ass to the storied pennsylvania avenue address, and i really don't need to read any more about this particular incoming pet.
