Suburban Mom's Political Fix: Obama vs The Fly

President Obama took on a pesky, interloping fly (insert a snarky, put-down of an annoying pol) during a taped interview with CNBC. And Obama won. It was a literal smack-down.

Then, as the CNBC camera folks trained the lens on the fly's carcass lying on the White House rug the President said, "I got the sucker."

'Twas an odd, albeit amusing bit of video. But not, apparently to PETA, if the gossipy celeb-centric web site TMZ is to be believed. The group reportedly issued a statement which took the presidential fly killer to task for summarily executing the insect. The statement said in part, "He isn't the Buddha. He's a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."

Good grief.
