(Newser) – Michelle Obama's media blitz continued last night on David Letterman's Late Show, where she presented the night's Top 10 list, "Fun Facts About Gardening." The list included No. 7: "In his lifetime, the average American will eat half a radish," No. 4: "If you have an actual green thumb, it might be scurvy," and No. 1: "With enough care and effort, you can grow your own Barack-oli"—at which point the first lady held up a broccoli head carved into a likeness of her husband. The appearance was aimed at promoting her new book, American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America, notes CBS.

I waited until June 7th to post this. June 6th, 1944, was D-Day - one of the most important events in history and the turning point of World War II. American, Canadian and British troops risked their lives and many thousands died invading Normandy, yet there was not one related story about it on Newser. But, at least they did report that Michelle Obama presented the previous night's Top 10 list on Letterman. Newser is the worst news aggregate ever. They are the shits. Have a nice day, everyone... : )

More appropriate list would be "Top 10 Reasons to Hate America"

Let me see if I have this right... On the night that the Dem candidate in an extremely importnat election gets trounced (Wisconsin) because Mr. Michelle didn't lead, endorse or support the candidate... the Obamas come up with this instead. I want a Dem that fights and takes the position seriously. OBAMA, YOU SUCK!
