First name basis?

You might have seen this over at Hot Air, a Time Magazine editor blaming the "Whitey" rumor on Rush Limbaugh and righty blogs.

If you listen closely to the clip you'll hear him call her "Michelle" instead of Michelle Obama or Mrs. Obama. Whether this was just a linguistic short-cut or he calls her that all the time is unknown, but it certainly sounds a little too casual and chummy for an outfit like Time.

Perhaps more interesting is how these folks have taken such an aversion to rumor-mongering, seeing as how they resisted Kitty Kelley's book or McCain's rumored affair (and make sure to note the source).

Mi-chelle, my bell,

These are words that go together well.
