“I was just your average hockey mom...” It wasn't the first time a public figure alluded to humble origins. There isn't a senator or congressman from way down in Dixie, who doesn't spend every day practicing his southern drawl and “aw shucks“ demeanor in front of a mirror, so he can never lose either one after thirty years of using the Watergate as his main address. I could always use something like “My grandpa was born in a log cabin, and now his grandson works within spittin' distance of the White House.” Yeah, that would be cool. It would also be true. Anyway, I stole this video clip from Mark Shea when he was too busy signing copies of his latest book “Eat, Drink, And See Mary: The Inside Story of Medjugorje” to notice. It's sure to be a big hit. Here's hoping we can say the same for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.
