WTF? Smoking Hot News

President-elect Barack Obama is a smoker! He hasn’t so far managed to shake his addiction to tobacco. Obama still either needs or enjoys a cigarette now and then. This is apparently newsworthy. WTF???

Variations of this non-story keep popping up across the MSM, much to my confusion and mild concern since this should be considered a non-issue by anyone with a brain.

Strangely it doesn’t seem to be the Right who are keeping this foolishness in the news; it’s the Left. Apparently the Stop Smoking arm of the Liberals has a problem with Obama’s cigarette habit. Has political correctness – and smoking is so politically incorrect as to be nearly as bad as being Pro-Life – reached the point that the Liberal-driven MSM has to keep reporting on this? Or is it just a “safe” topic that the MSM can take Obama to task for?

OK, people – Obama smokes cigarettes. He seems to favor Marlboro Lights. Why do any of you care?

    Haha, I like your take on this. 🙂

    What on earth does this have to do with his ability to be President?

    I have no earthly clue, Razzler. This whole thing – non-thing? – seems to be either a diversion, a lame attempt by the MSM to say something negative about their “appointee,” or just the anti-smoking PC crowd bemoaning that Obama isn’t quite what they made him out to be.

    In any case, I find it to be a waste of time that the MSM would be better using to cover a plethora of other real issues.
