Bernstein With a Twist
This is a weekly program with commentary on current issues.
She touched the queen! First, she dug up the White House lawn and planted a garden. Then, she went over to England and touched the queen!
I never thought Michelle Obama would make Hillary Clinton look like Mamie Eisenhower. But thatís audacity for you.
Good thing, too. I like the first ladyís style. So, evidently, does the queen. (I hear she touched Michelle first!) Thatís the extent of my knowledge about protocol.
Iím much more knowledgeable, or excited, anyway, about the White House vegetable garden. For the most part, I think it has been very well thought out.
Take beets. The president hates íem. I hate them. There will be no beets. I think Mrs. Obama came down on the right side of beets.
This garden will be planted in prime, not sub prime, soil. Based on a top-secret diagram posted online, it will have a variety of lettuce, spinach, peas, kale, collards, onions, carrots, rhubarb and many herbs, but not Hoover. In yet another reversal of Bush policies, the garden will have broccoli.
