I still think that when cretins like Donald Trump refer to President Obama as being "the least transparent president ever" it's just a thesaurus-fueled way of calling him so black he's blue. But on top of that, Barack is an open book. Or rather, an open magazine—Us (November 12, 2012) offers "25 Things You Don't Know About Me," the Barack Obama edition!
Actually, we knew a lot of these things, including the fact that he's the first president to tweet and that he was hugged by a Republican pizza-shop owner.
But I was surprised that his first kiss with Michelle was outside a Baskin-Robbins in Hyde Park. I wonder if I ever went to that one when I attended the U of C?
P.S. Mitt Romney refused Us's offer to do his own list, but probably because he thought it was a ruse to get at his tax returns. Or because he wasn't sure about which Mitt Romney they wanted to learn things.
