Smoking Gun Pointed at Idiot Reviewer

In the good old WaPo the other day there was an opinion piece by Michael Kinsley that discussed if Barak Obama had quit smoking or not. This is my favorite line:
"Obama's steely calm is now one of our country's major assets. If he needs an occasional cigarette to preserve it, let's hand him an ashtray, offer him a light and look the other way."
Uhhhhhh, what? The article is basically about how Obama might not be trust worthy but we should all just look the other way as if having a president that smokes matters to the rest of the world. Really, does anyone care? Right now my 401(k) is evaporating, my health care is dependant on if rich people continue eating out every night, Social Security will not be able to support my parents, much less myself, and we are sitting in the smoldering ruins of what used to be a country of idealism and opportunity.

Smoke em if you got em, Obama. Let's just get this cleaned up.

Wow. Is that really an issue? Sometimes it is a real blessing to be 'unplugged' from mass media.
