Some folks are in a tizzy over the First Lady’s speech to the IOC regarding her deceased father in Denmark last week.
“Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad’s lap, cheering on Carl Lewis and others for their brilliance and perfection,” recalled the First Lady.
The blogosphere backlash: She wasn’t sitting on her dad’s lap when she was cheering on Carl Lewis. In 1984, at the age of 20, she couldn’t have been sitting on her dad’s lap watching Lewis compete in the Olympics.
The above backlash also accused Mrs. Obama’s speechwriter of being sloppy while other blogs are flat out calling the First Lady a liar.
Hmmm. Mrs. O might have very well sat in her dad’s lap at 20. Or this might have been a minor slip-up. What do you think? Is this “tizzy” just hateration or could it be justifiable?
