It Took an Arm-y to Beat Oprah

In our Reliable Source Final Four matchups, Tara Wheeler put up a stupendous fight -- but then Levi Johnston blabbed to Tyra Banks, catapulting the Bristol Palin Saga to a final-seconds victory. On the other side of the brackets, we wanted to see Michelle Obama's Arms get a real workout -- maybe throwing out a first pitch? But they all too easily overpowered Oprah, after yet another rumor about the talk show host moving to D.C. turned out to be a dud. The champion: Those limbs, thanks to a barrage of photos of the sleeveless first lady in Europe. Thanks for playing, everyone!

Would you please stop spending your time writing about M. Obama's arms. The way she dressed on her recent trip to Europe was a disgrace. Showing skin isn't part of the ticket and whomever is giving her fashion advice had better go back to school. There is nothing attractive about this woman - other than her arms. The adulation over the Obamas seems to mute everything else that is going on in this country that to the liberal press is seemingly less important. Let's cut the crap and get to some real reporting. I can't believe the WaPo would pay the two of you the kind of money you make to write what they put in print. I know grade school children who write with more substance and meaning.

Unfortunately, PittAlum must have gotten lost on the way to the A Section of the website. This is a GOSSIP COLUMN! If you feel that anything other than "real news" is beneath you, please stop wasting your time reading The Reliable Source. Those of us who find it entertaining will be glad to see you go.

Um, that looks like Naomi Campbell in the background. I don't think she is a G20 spouse.
