Gag Me With a Spoon, I'm not falling for your cheap theatrics
So. President Obama has been on tour promoting the bloated wish list the Democrats are calling "stimulus". You know, because support of the stimulus package has fallen to around 30% with the American public and The One has to put his magical glow on the thing to convince people that the steaming pile of dog shit is actually chocolate cream pie. Good luck with that!

Anyway, Obama's travels took him to Florida and we were presented with the image of Obama as Jesus. That's right folks! Get your first look at Obama's miracle healings here!

The only problem is, it was all so very scripted, so very convenient, so clearly staged.

I refer, of course, to the tale of Henrietta Hughes. Ms. Hughes is homeless and jobless, living in her vehicle with her adult son. At Obama's town hall meeting, she begged Obama for help. But, I have a few questions...

1. How did Ms. Hughes get tickets to the event? We know that Obama's team carefully vets every person in the room (something they don't bother to do, clearly, for cabinet nominees) and pre-approve any and all questions. So how is it that Ms. Hughes found her way into the town hall meeting?
2. And, how did she get such a primo seat in the front row? That's all more than a bit suspicious to me.
3. Moreover, the lady looked really well for someone who is living in her car. A two-hour drive in the Jeep has me looking the worse for wear, greasy and wrinkled. It is amazing how well she looks given her "long time" residency in her vehicle.
4. I find it even more curious that she could be there to bask in The One's light when she...might have been out looking for a job.

Now, don't get me wrong, I feel for the lady. But, the same national media that looked into Joe the Plumber's licenses and tax situation are surprisingly incurious about Henrietta Hughes. We don't know why she's homeless. We are just supposed to swallow the story and be moved by the way The One hugged her and made everything all right.

Sorry, it is all just a bit too contrived for me. Far too...traveling carnival.

Laaaadies and Genttttlemen: In the next tent - The bearded lady and the boy with two heads!

(That last is not a crack about Hillary or Harry Reid.)

(Or, is it?)

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin finds more information on Henrietta Hughes and her son.
