The O Ring

The NY Post reports that Barack Obama has bought Michelle Obama a rare $30,000 diamond-encrusted rhodium ring from Giovanni Bosco as a "thank you" gift for putting up with his 2-year national campaign for the Presidency. Predictably, there's some outrage from the conservative Post, which notes that the country's economy is in shambles while Obama buys pricey "bling". See? We should have totally voted for McCain, whose family never owned a nice thing, ever. [NY Post]
