Because Michelle Obama could never make a mistake...

You have to love the lickspittle pundits in the mainstream media who rationalize away the faults of members of their favorite political party. Case in point: Michelle Obama’s idiotic failure to learn the name of a candidate she was endorsing. (I wrote about it in “Michelle Obama embarrasses herself repeatedly bungling name of candidate she claims is a 'good friend'”)

Cue the ass-kissers. Alex Griswold of the Daily Caller spotted three of them:

Let’s begin with the third hour of NBC’s “Today.”NewsBusters reports that during a discussion of Michelle’s name flub, co-host Willie Geist noted that Michelle would have had a teleprompter with Braley’s name on it. “But now he’s getting a lot of name recognition,” he pointed out. “Maybe it was like evil genius move, who knows?”

Meanwhile, Politico’s Hadas Gold reached the same conclusion on Twitter.

But Bloomberg Politics’ Dave Weigel has another idea.

Don’t these people realize how ridiculous they look?
