When asked to respond to the differences in literacy levels, the Romney campaign drew a picture of a pony on a star.

Although her husband has delivered some of the simplest State of the Union speeches over the last 75+ years - with all three written at an eighth grade level - Michelle Obama did not follow rhetorical suit on Tuesday evening.

Good for her.

It's about time somebody raised the level of political discourse

But first, let us benefit from it just a bit so I can claim I care about my constituents.

On December 10, 2010, Ryan penned a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services to recommend a grant application for the Kenosha Community Health Center, Inc to develop a new facility in Racine, Wisconsin, an area within Ryan's district. "The proposed new facility, the Belle City Neighborhood Health Center, will serve both the preventative and comprehensive primary health care needs of thousands of new patients of all ages who are currently without health care," Ryan wrote.

The grant Ryan requested was funded directly by the Affordable Care Act, better known simply as health care reform or Obamacare.

Too cool. Maybe there is an edge to space.

“Voyager tells us now that we're in a stagnation region in the outermost layer of the bubble around our solar system,” said Ed Stone, Voyager project scientist at the California Institute of Technology, at a December 2011 press conference. “Voyager is showing that what is outside is pushing back. We shouldn't have long to wait to find out what the space between stars is really like.”

Looking at that chart it's pretty interesting-The first Lady went from a 9th grade level speech to 12th. From just a little above average from the cart to stellar. I'm just curious why. Experience? Speechwriter? Tactical decision to put distance between her and Ann Romney?

Maybe somebody finally decided to treat the electorate like adults?

I anxiously await the 2016 convention speech by the next Republican candidate's wife, which will no doubt be delivered in a series of guttural grunts and hand gestures.

Oh, I don't think they'll have regressed quite that far, but she will probably just put on a slideshow of stick figure pictures she drew and colored all by herself.
