From Times blogger, and Laura Bush's former flak, Andrew Malcolm [emphasis added]:
Now that they've seen Paris together this summer, you can also scratch Arizona's Grand Canyon off the Obama family's list of must-see sites.
The Chicago clan spent a little more than three hours Sunday not hiking but looking out at the large hole in the ground created by the Colorado River over more years even than Joe Biden served in the U.S. Senate. (See video below, much shorter than three hours.)
That kind of snide, derogatory language seems to be way out of bounds for a mainstream news outlet, especially considering Malcolm is a devoted critic of the Obama White House, and that the right-wing is pushing the claim that Obama is a corrupt Chicago pol.
