Celebrity Cruises

Remember the GOP mantra during the 2008 campaign about Barack Obama being nothing but a “celebrity”? They laid into his tour of Iraq and Europe and mocked his speech in Berlin as nothing more than a rock-star appearance. We have serious problems, we were told, and they can’t be solve by a guy who outdoes the Jonas Brothers for fan adulation. Of course, it didn’t help that John McCain had all the star appeal of a re-run of The Lawrence Welk Show.

My, how times have changed.
