Much Ado About Nothing
Michelle Obama recently has come under a barrage of criticism for, among other things, going on an extravagant vacation while so many Americans are experiencing economic hardship. Byron York, a conservative columnist, gloated over the First Lady's dip in popularity. This is brief unpublished reply to his piece.

Byron York must be hard-pressed to make deadline because opining on Mrs. Obama's decline in popularity is much ado about nothing. The fortunes of a White House or political party have never rested on what voters thought about the president's wife at any point in time.
