None Of Yo Business

When Chelsea promised to take one last question, a person in the crowd asked her take on her mother's handling of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

"Wow, you're the first person actually that's ever asked me that in the, I don't know, maybe 70 college campuses that I've now been to and I do not think that's any of your business," responded Chelsea.

The crowd responded with applause.

-------- Years ago I felt sympathy for Chelsea, the homeliest little girl ever to occupy the White House, an only child without the comfort and camaraderie of siblings, with a pusshound dad and a momma who would make an excellent guard in a maximum security women's prison - childhood couldn't have been easy.

In her 'none of your business' response I can hear Hillary coaching: If anyone has the balls to ask about Monica tell 'em it's none of their business.

The best answer would have been something like "I believe my mother handled the Lewinsky situation with dignity. Thank you, next question." End of the matter.

Instead, Chelsea's comeback was snide, pompous, as churlish as the man who asked the question.

Some might consider the question rude - but hey, when you're pimping for your momma and your daddy gets his blowjobs in public housing, you gotta expect someone will try to nail you.

Maybe Shrillary is pitching for the mostpowerful man in the world job and needs all the help she can get...but there is something spooky about hauling your kid around with you.

Maybe she's just itching for someone someday to ask "What's it like having a parent who is President " (which must be a leitmotif of converstaion for children of)and she can reply.

Which one ? Mum or Dad ?

Mitt had 5 sons hauled around in a Winnebago for him.

But none have the rock star status of Obama-rama.

Does anyone else see shades (no pun) of Condi Rice in Michelle Obama?
