Obamarama: Today in Future First Family News (Dec. 3, 2008)


Barry Blitt's "Vetting" (The New Yorker)


The New Yorker and artist Barry Blitt redeem themselves from the summer's misbegotten and/or misunderstood Obama-radical-fistbump cover with this brilliant one of the president-elect interviewing a series of dogs. The title? "Vetting." Yeah! Funny and cute and controversy-free this time, we think...

(Cue the angry letter-writers complaining that Blitt's cartoon portrays too many dander-prone breeds.)

Since you're wondering: No, nothing new on the Obama dog search. The Obama dog search hasn't even begun yet, that we know of.

A spokesman flatly denies that story you heard about Barack buying Michelle a $30,000 ring, or was it a 30,000 pound ring? Gawker explains why you should have known it was bogus (cheesy London tabloid, self-promoting jewelry designer you've never heard of), and MichelleObamaWatch dissects the blog reaction.

And no, of course we don't know what Michelle's inaugural gown is going to look like yet, nor even who is going to design it, but that's good because that allows us to keep wallowing in speculative fantasy. Women's Wear Daily today offers up the best inaugural fashionporn to date, with 35 dream sketches from top designers.

For your final Bam-a-lot fix, the Chicago Tribune argues that the Obamas are the most adorably lovey-dovey White House couple ever in recorded history -- or at least since Ronald and Nancy Reagan.
