On Tuesday evening, things got a little light-hearted for the President when he popped up on stage at a White House event with smudged lipstick on his collar. The President immediately pointed it out, proclaimed his innocence and identified the aunt of American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez as the culprit.
Folks laughed, but the President was probably dead serious. The last time we had a Democrat in the White House, a sex scandal nearly ended his presidency and killed any political capital he had left. Plus, there's no way he wanted to explain the lipstick on his collar to Michelle. At least this way, Michelle knows she can't touch him. If something happens to Barack, she's automatically the prime suspect. Smart move, Mr. President.
