On the campaign trail Thursday in Colorado, First Lady Michelle Obama touted the credentials of Democratic Sen. Mark Udall, calling him a “fifth generation Coloradan,” who, as such, “understands what makes this state special.”
Well, Udall may or may not understand what makes Colorado special.
Wait a second, isn’t every state special?? Doesn’t everyone get a prize?
But to the extent Udall is acquainted with Colorado’s particular specialness, it can’t be because he’s a fifth generation Colorado, since HE WAS BORN IN ARIZONA.
The only one who on this basis can perceive the specialness of Colorado is in fact his opponent, Republican Rep. Cory Gardner, who is a fifth generation Coloradan.
How’d they get that one wrong?
This follows another Michelle gaffe a few days ago in which she repeatedly urged voters to support Rep. Bruce Bailey, D-Iowa, in his quest for Senate, which was perhaps confusing for people since his name is Bruce Braley.
