Ah, Regret.


A MILF Boulder Already Believes In!

Michelle Obama graced the City of Boulder with her presence yesterday, and there was no way I was going to miss the chance to see that hot mama in action!  So Erin, a few of my coworkers, and I headed over to the University of Colorado campus to hear the woman preach.  

Now keep in mind that not only every single CU student, but also every single resident of Boulder supports Barack Obama.  Ever wonder why Colorado is a swing state?  Boulder is why.  You leave this town, and it’s red country, aka bat country.  (McCain and Palin will be visiting the Centennial State this weekend, but I get the sense they won’t be stopping in B-city for a bike ride and some organic smoothies.)

Anyway, back to the main event.  Michelle was of course lookin’ good and electrifying the crowd.  (Seriously… she basically stepped up on the podium and said “CU make some nooooiiiise!” and noise was most certainly made.)

Since you couldn’t be there, allow me to provide you with some highlights from the speech:

“We don’t want a Washington that’s just going to talk a big game…” (Ha! I just can’t imagine Cindy McCain using that phrase.)

[Michelle] “We’ve had some great support from CU.”
[guy with a megaphone] “We love you back!”
[crowd] *laughter*
[Michelle] “We need to get you up here!”

“I was talking to Barack and I said, ‘Babe…'” (Awww!)

[With regards to friends and family who refuse to register to vote] “We all have people in our lives who are triflin'” (Another phrase probably not found in the Cindy McCain vernacular, I’m guessing.)

[Michelle] “Until several years ago, Barack and I were still in debt from college loans.  The only reason we were able to pay them off is because Barack wrote two best-selling books!”
[crowd] *chuckle*
[Erin] “Good thing she hitched her wagon to that gravy train.”

[Michelle] “Colorado is a swing state…”
[crowd] *cheers, muttered “swinger” jokes*
[Michelle] “…so let’s do some swingin’!”
[crowd] *hearty laughter–she actually made a swinger joke!  She is so cool!*

Oh and she said some stuff about “middle class”, “single mom”, “blue collar”, “regular folks”, “hard work”, etc etc.
[Boulder] “So, can you take our vote now, or do we need to wait till November?”
