Yes, many people wanted to say something about it -- The Today Show got more than 300,000 comments on its website.

But was there any dumber story this week than all the attention paid by some of the news media to the shorts that first lady Michelle Obama wore in Arizona last weekend?

Just sayin'.

Agree or disagree -- and suggest other candidates for dumbest story of the week (perhaps this post?) -- in the comments thread.
