First Lady Michelle Obama flubs and describes herself as a “busy single mother,” during an interview with Burlington, VT, CBS affiliate WCAX. It should be noted that Mrs. Obama corrected herself, explaining,”Sometimes when you’ve got the husband who’s president, it can feel a little single, but he’s there.”

Of course, we know Michelle Obama isn’t a “single mother” but let’s not interrupt the freak-out from The Drudge Report and other right wing sites. God forbid she should ever misspeak. I am pretty sure Laura Bush had some of those moments when she felt she was a “busy single mother.” Especially those times when their daughters were bar-hopping and using fake IDs.

Er, this comes as President Obama called California Attorney General Kamala Harris the ‘best looking attorney general in the country.” The Drudge Report is running with it. Some call it patronizing. Others say its misogynistic. Um, he may have some explaining to do to Michelle Obama.

“You have to be careful to, first of all, say she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough, and she is exactly what you’d want in anybody who is administering the law, and making sure that everybody is getting a fair shake.  She also happens to be by far the best-looking attorney general in the country — Kamala Harris is here.”

“It’s true! C’mon,” he said as the crowd laughed, according to a report provided by a print reporter at the home of John Goldman, an heir to the Levi-Strauss fortune.
