Cherry Pickin'

Now we all know that the President will be chatting us up tonight. But before we get to that, you should check out The Daily Beast justifying the First Lady's thug, Think Progress outlining Rick Santelli's bubble guts, the BBC shedding light on some shady business dealings in Zimbabwe and more. So sit back, click through and read up. And fret not. The Buzz totally skimmed the reading.

The New York Times: It's certainly nice to go into tonight's speech with some momentum.

The Washington Post: So what happens at the end of the emergency?

The Los Angeles Times: That sound, friends, was the good people at MoveOn.org having a collective stroke.

BBC: Having a controlling interest in a private company within your country just makes you very, very patriotic.

Al Jazeera: Be careful, fellas: Collateral damage tends to upset people.

ESPN: The consummate professional and proof positive that nice Black people can beat gun charges.

Ebony Report: Good grief...

Racialicious: All the downside but none of the blame? That's like being Prince Harry, but extremely poor.

The Daily Beast: When you give your husband a pound after winning the presidential nod, your G is well-spoken for.

Think Progress: Threatened? Unlikely. Maybe that nervous feeling is the realization that you threw down the gauntlet at a president, Rick.
