Alright, that headline’s a bit snarky. Presidential vacations do have to be planned months in advance – although five months would seem like a lot. But it’s not as if the president can wait around for last minute tickets on omgreallycheapairflights.com.
Not that he would anyway, with us paying for it and all.
But still, he’s already got two vacations in the bag, his wife does too, and she’s currently on a boondoggle to China. So it’s a little awkward, I think, that we’re getting ready for our August relaxation period.
The Martha’s Vineyard Times, quoting three reliable sources – what if they had only one reliable source and two unreliable ones? – reports that the Obamas are coming back to the island, like they do every year.
Three reliable sources, who asked not to be named because they are not authorized to release information, told The Times that Mr. Obama will return to the Island in August. Two sources said the vacation is scheduled on or about August 9, a week earlier than the first family visited in previous years.
Okay, just wondering, how reliable are these sources when they are speaking when they were told not to speak? That means they are not reliable to someone . . .
What we journalists mean when we say three reliable sources is really three gossipy yentas . . .
