Since the Obamas have moved into the White House, we have seen stories from Washington on the Obamas' dog, their date nights, First Lady Michell's buff arms, going out for hamburgers and now this story about their frozen custard outing. Is this news you want to hear or is this part of the media's infatuation with the Obama/Kennedy story lines? Is it something else? What do you think?

This is the story from the Associated Press today:

The first family was in the mood for something sweet -- something like vanilla custard, fudge and sprinkles.
On a muggy Saturday just before Father's Day, President Barack Obama took Sasha, 8, and Malia, 10, to The Dairy Godmother, a frozen custard shop just outside Washington.
The president snacked on vanilla custard with hot fudge and toasted almonds in a cup, said the shop's owner, Liz Davis. Sasha ordered a brownie sundae treat with vanilla custard, hot fudge and chocolate sprinkles. Malia walked out of the shop, eating the remains of a waffle cone with vanilla frozen custard.
During his 15-minute stay, Obama also shook hands with customers and posed for pictures. Obama left the shop with some puppy treats for the family's dog, Bo.

Yes, information overload. Ridiculous doesn't even begin to describe the amount of coverage they are getting.

I'm just waiting for breaking news... Obama had a bowel movement.

Ok, fortunately it won't be that bad, I'm just wondering when this will die down.

I agree with Shane.

If he wanted the Media falling all over him, he should be in Hollywood, not the White House.
