Already it's starting. The comments about Michelle Obama's dress the night of the big win. Luckily she wore a different one to the White House.
Now we hear about an additional $40,000 spent on Alaska's first dude's wardrobe. [Although some radio jock here pointed out that snowmobile stuff is expensive.]
Not to mention the confusion about whether Africa is a country or a continent -- a conundrum experienced by the Dude's education-challenged wifey-poo. [The story is still considered true; the source is the hoax.]
