In Camelot!

In the darkest, deepest reaches of enemy territory, the Queen summoned up the moldy ghosts of Camelot to try and revive her faltering campiagn.

According to the Lewiston Tribune, at a campaign speech in Clarkston yesterday, the Governor said:
"I first met Michelle when she visited Washington a few months ago," Gregoire said. "She reminded me of Jacqueline Kennedy. Like Kennedy, I'm predicting she will be loved and respected around the globe. As a child, I was inspired by John F. Kennedy, and I see that same kind of inspiration coming from Barack Obama. That's why I think he's the right choice. It's time for America to get new leadership."
Yep, JFK inspired the young Chris Gregoire so much, just 3 years after his assassination, she joined a sorority at UW (later becoming president) that only allowed girls that were white and Christian.

No doubt the Queen was prompted to make such an absurd comparison by Obama's "Ich Bin Ein Beginner" speech and Michelle Obama's "Jackie" sartorial makeover. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy.

Gregoire's Kennedy connection is as strained and incredulous as BHO's own fanciful tale of JFK bringing his father over from Kenya.
