Many people have commented n the trip Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction took to Spain.   Kirsten Powers,  no conservative, judges it  a PR disaster.   Roger Simon finds it  more than a simple disconnect from the country.

Austin Hill notes the First Couples’  8 vacations in 18 months,  and Andrea Tantaros  sets the tone for this  splendid visual satire,  which Lucianne.com featured on Monday to start our week correctly.

Mickey Kaus has  a funnier take (h/t Jonah Goldberg at The Corner) and Victor Davis Hanson ponders  the elitism.    Across the pond,  Niles Gardiner  spares neither of the Obamas.

The frantic spinning  starts here.

As for some of the  other rats…..
