Stay classy, Michelle Obama! For the first time, she’s proud of knuckleheads. Aren’t you pleased, Obama supporters, that Mrs. Obama thinks you are knuckleheads?

More from Politico:
“Talk to everyone you know — your friends, your neighbors, that cousin you haven’t seen in a while, that student sitting next to you in class. You know he’s kind of a knucklehead,” the first lady said. “You know the one.”
“Tap him on the shoulder. Be nice. Don’t call him a knucklehead. Not to his face. You just want to encourage him to get to the polls,” Obama said. “But tell him what’s at stake.”
Wow. It’s funny, but many believe that “knuckleheads” are people would would repeat the same mistake.
