Perhaps Just A Little Over The Top

So the President's children finally get their dog. I suppose that's a big deal, especially if you happen to be one of the President's daughters. Surely, though, it's not as big a deal as we the people appear to believe.
One press release asks whether or not the choice of first dog broke one of Obama's campaign promises. Apparently President Obama at some point in his campaign mentioned that the family would rescue a dog. So the hot topic today has been the definition of 'rescue' and whether or not Bo, the current name of the first dog, was really rescued. Another part of this alleged broken campaign promise had to do with breed. The President apparently referred to himself as being a mutt and stated the desire that the first dog also be a mutt. The first dog is definitely not a mutt.
Another big question of the day is whether or not Senator Kennedy played a role in the alleged deception related to rescue and breed and lineage.
Really, is this any of our business?
I think not.
Let the kids have their pet and the dog its day.
