All Greek to Me

We're having a great time over here at the White House right now. Today, we are celebrating Greek Independence Day, which can mean only one thing: all you can eat Feta!

It also means the inevitable comparisons between Big Guy and Alexander the Great. This isn't a fair comparison on any level, however. First, Big Guy likes girls. Second, when Alexander took power he wasn't facing the greatest economic crisis in the history of the world brought on by the irresponsible policies and greed of a previous administration.

But there is one historic parallel I don't mind sharing. Alexander did have Aristotle as a tutor; Big Guy has me.

We're all kind of dreading the end of this party, though, because back when they lived in Chicago, Greek Independence Day meant another tradition in the Obama household: a showing of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" with the volume muted so Big Guy could do all the voices himself. And now that we have that 52-inch monitor, the horror will be hi-def.

    Seriously, how do you keep from getting a pot-belly with all those snacks at the White House? Do you and the Big Guy play one-on-one basketball?

  10. Hey, going with that Aristotle theme, why don't you pop that "moderation in all things" at him from time to time? Especially when he's talking about raising taxes.

  11. Didn't you watch the presser? TOTUS told POTUS to say "save and invest" instead of "tax and spend". Probably sent a thrill up somebody's leg!
