Michelle Obama declares that her husband’s graying hair proves he deserves another term as president. Quod erat demonstrandum (Q.E.D.), as a mathematician would say. Science, however, does not agree. It’s more likely that we’re seeing in Obama’s hair signs of normal aging.
Although, as any Republican will testify, Ronald Reagan’s hair never turned gray, even in his 90s. Maybe Reagan didn’t have the stress of knowing—as Obama must realize by now — that he is an incompetent who is always making wrong policy decisions.

Marie Antoinette’s hair turned white at age 37. But she was ill, hemorrhaging constantly, and probably dying from tuberculosis, as Ann Coulter describes in her new book, “Demonic.” But the French Queen was headed for the guillotine. Obama, on the other hand, is headed for another year or so of campaigning and extravagant fundraising to pay for television lies about Republicans. Most knowledgeable people would suspect he is thinking more about how to rope in votes than about choices that “will affect every American family.”
The message from Michelle, said the ABC news story, “is the latest effort by the President’s re-election campaign to use the occasion of Obama’s birthday to energize his followers and, indirectly, encourage the contribution of their time and money in the months ahead,”
