Presented Without Comment

OK, with minimal comment then. I heard someone repeating the supposed Marie Antoinette quote today: "Let them eat cake." First off, it may not have been Marie Antoinette that said it, and second, the quote isn't quite right. It was "Let them eat brioche," which is like fancy-pants bread. So it was more like, "Send them to Panera."

Apart from that, "Let them eat cake" is very much in tune with the Obamas' attitude. Her frolic won't cost us so much, but her husband just gave away another 26 billion.

Twenty-six billion here, twenty-six billion there, and pretty soon you're talking about real money.
