Stop the Presses: Michelle Obama Booed at NASCAR Race!

The Left is in a tizzy at Michelle Obama and Jill Biden getting booed at the NASCAR race yesterday in Homestead, Fla.

Odd that nobody seemed to make as big a deal out of it when Michelle was booed at  this year’s World Series.

It’s also odd that Dems are now big fans of NASCAR in light of the fact that they wanted to pull Department of Defense sponsorship of race cars in June:

Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) is readying her next move in a months-long effort to slash Pentagon spending for NASCAR and other sports sponsorships.

McCollum questions whether the U.S. military should be spending hundreds of millions of dollars on sponsorship deals for sports including stock car racing, professional fishing and pro wrestling at a time when the nation is running large deficits. Military officials and congressional supporters say the sponsorships help with recruitment.

So, which is it? Are Dems for or against stock-car racing? Besides uber-fan Michelle, of course. . .
