Certified organic Tuscan kale

Reading this in today’s WaPo, by the usually Obama-sympathetic Dana Milbank, should enrage you. If, that is, you are a tax-paying American who is footing the bill for Mrs. Obama’s trip to the neighborhood organic food stand for some certified organic Tuscan kale.

Look, I’m certain that prior presidents and their wives have gone out and about on fools’ errands that wind up costing the taxpayers dearly. And, not to put too fine a point on it, disrupt the lives of hundreds of citizens who were, mostly, just going about their business.

It is not acceptable, and this has nothing to do with politics: it has to do with whether our president is our ruler, or a public servant.

This is a republic, damn it. Enough with the Sun King and his Queen.
