When Doves Cry

For the record, I really like Michelle Obama and thought her speech tonight was quite solid, if a little too slick and rehearsed. But what the heck was CNN doing with those relentless cutaways to sobbing women in the audience? "Oh mah Gawd, she loves her children JUST LIKE I LOVE MINE." And when the Obamatots came out onstage for a videocam chat with Sen. Daddy? Cheesier than the cheesiest cheese in Cheese Town. "What city are you in Daddy? I love you, Daddy!" Another big wheel of Limburger is CNN's "sound from the floor" applause meter (partially visible above). Because we need to count how many times somebody says something popular enough to put the needle into the red. "Abortions for some, miniature American flags for others!"
