Yes, Parking Tickets

YES, PARKING TICKETS….Seriously, we’re now writing articles about Barack Obama not paying parking tickets when he was a student at Harvard? What’s next? “Needs to work on his penmanship” from his fourth grade teacher?

But just to show what a charmed life he leads, this ends up turning into yet another example of what a great guy Obama is. You see, as soon as the Boston Globe brought this to his attention, he paid off his fines. The director of the city’s traffic department was thrilled:

“I think it’s fabulous he finally paid them,” [Susan] Clippinger said by phone yesterday. “I think others who owe us money should pay us, too.”

Atta boy, Barack! Way to set an example. Let’s hope the rest of Harvard’s deadbeats are listening.
