Michelle and Barack Obama demonstrated true grace, but, more so, that they care by sticking around after the debate. The Obamas chatted with, shook hands with, and took pictures with everyone who cared to in last night's audience.

When someone gives you a gift... send a hand-written thank you note.

Not a stupid, pre-printed photo card.

Not "nothing." Especially if they traveled and invested time and expense to celebrate your occasion with you.

The Bitch attended an out-of-state wedding a month ago, and is still awaiting her "thanks." Who knew my friends were so ungracious?

Away from etiquette...Rachel Maddow

Okay, I gotta just say here, I adore Rachel Maddow. (In a totally non-sexual way)
She's just adorable, and has amazing eyebrows. There's something so affable about her.
Go Rachel! You rock on MSNBC.
