With all of the nonsense out there that we come across day in and day out, why is it such big news that Barack Obama is getting a dog for his family. Certainly, mention it once. Maybe talk about it briefly when it materializes. I get it dogs are cute. But is it really something to spend more than a week discussing? Is there nothing more substantial to take up headline space on MSN.com?
Of course, I am just one guy who is probably just jealous that his guinea pigs did not make it to the international news spotlight. But I am working on it.
On the bright side, talk of the Obama’s future pet has pushed some of the “Dancing with the Stars” headlines out of the spotlight. Whew!
