So, this was a huge week in Washington, with the payroll-tax deal and everything. But instead of focusing on the size of its impact on the middle class, some seem to feel that a more salient issue is the size of the Obamas' bodies. First Michelle has a "large posterior", and now Obama is a "skinny ghetto crackhead."

Mediaite reports that in "slamming MSNBC's Chris Matthews for earlier saying that Newt Gingrich looked like a car bomber, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell said, "How long do you think Sean Hannity's show would last if four times in one sentence he made a comment about the president of the United States and said that he looked like a skinny ghetto crackhead — which, by the way, you might want to say that Barack Obama does!"

Gosh, the Obamas can't win. All this time we thought they both looked pretty fit and normal, but from the Republican perspective, one is too obese to discuss health, and the other is so emaciated he appears to be strung out on drugs.

That is, if this week's D.C. nonsense doesn't ruin your appetite.
