- EVERYTHING ON EARTH IS ABOUT RACE: Wonkette boring luncheons operative "Beth" sends us this secret dispatch: "I just got back from a luncheon for Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire, headlined by Michelle Obama. Michelle said that her favorite chocolate in the world is Fran's Chocolates -- she said she and Barack fight over them, and hide them from each other. Then she said, 'He likes the light chocolate, I prefer the dark chocolate.' We all laughed, then thought, 'Wait a minute...'" We assume the long awkward silence broke when some white reporter randomly shouted, "that Christopher Rock is the finest jokesmith I've seen -- of either race! -- since, golly, I don't know when."
