100 Words on Picking Your Battles

Oh brother. This is where people go too far. People are up in arms because Kellyanne Conway put her feet on the couch in the Oval Office. So what? It’s not like it’s the couch where Alexander Hamilton and James Madison made sweet, sweet love and conceived the Declaration of Independence.

I mean, it wasn’t, right?

Let’s focus on the things that are important here and this does not qualify. As to why she is on the couch? Same thing. Who cares? She looks like she’s getting ready to take a picture or something. I mean, it is Kellyanne Conway, so I suppose we can’t totally discount the possibility that she’s dialed 9–1 and is just waiting for something to happen, but on this one I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.

There are enough horrible things going that we don’t need to worry about how or why a White House staffer is sitting on a couch. Unless, of course, it is the historic Taft couch, which is actually made from authentic Tafthide.

I’m not going to tell anybody to not yell and scream over things the Trump administration is doing. Let’s just try to pick our battles, you know?
