The Fabulous Life of Washington’s First Man

posted by on June 12 at 15:05 PM

From the press office of Gov. Christine Gregoire:

OLYMPIA – Governor Chris Gregoire today congratulated First Gentleman Mike Gregoire on reaching his goal of visiting elementary school students in each of Washington’s 39 counties. Sharing the joy of reading with students across the state, First Mike visited classrooms to read Jon Scieszka’s “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs” and answer questions about Trooper - the family dog, life in the Executive Mansion and what it is like to be married to the Governor.

First Gentleman? Is that really what we can look forward to calling Bill Clinton if HRC wins? I think that could become a factor in the bible belt.

"First Mike" is the cutest thing I've heard all day.

Bill Clinton should read up on this. Too bad he'll be the Second Gentleman (since Obama or Gore will be the Pres).

It seems like a valid enough way to spend one's time.

That's really sweet! And the classroom he is pictured in looks a great deal like my first grade classroom in Puyallup. Yes, I know, most elementary classrooms look alike but still...

He should be back at the mansion choosing the new curtains.

Thank goodness he didn't select "My Pet Goat"...

I'm intrigued by this story "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs." Sounds like a Stephen King story.

That was one of my favorite books growing up! Always root for the misunderstood underdog.

I rememebr you saying you were going to post more Chris Crocker outtakes, and I have been looking forward to that.

Should I stop looking forward to it?

@15: Sorry, sorry. I've been too busy. Will try, but am not promising anything super soon.

What the fuck? They didn't report on what he was wearing or his hairstyle. You can't report on the spouse of someone in politics without dissecting their fashion choices.

Dude looks pretty spy for someone who's "done it" with the "Father Of Our Country".
