Props to the Shorties

I am a short person. Tiny. Minute. Vertically challenged. If I were two inches shorter I would technically be a midget. However, I have never let my short stature bother me -- instead allowing my bombastic personality and cowboy boots with three inch heels to compensate. Now, though, I am thinking of getting rid of the boots, because short people are taking over the world. Witness members of Obama's new administration...



Hell, yeah. Obama knows what he is doing. Not only are all of these people smart, savvy, and ready to undo years of Bush administration incompetence, they can also go for the ankles when things get rough. Yes, they may need booster seats at the table in the cabinet room, but they still walk tall. I bet they don't even need boots with three inch heels. I bet they all have them though. And Hillary's probably are stiletto.

If you were TWO inches shorter you'd technically be a little person? TWO inches...?

While I too am a bit into the lilliputian territory - and I am thrilled to see that short people really do rule - I am a bit concerned. Could this be an ego trip for Obama? He is living out his Jolly Green Giant fantasies?

I agree with Mandy. I think Obama just wants to always be the tallest person in the room.
