Sure, other mothers who are famous for no discernible reason have been slacking off in the “setting a good example” department of late. Mama June has been dating a sex offender, who is also a former boyfriend, who apparently molested one of her kids, but not the kid he fathered, one of her other kids fathered by a different sex offender. I think. It’s hard to keep it straight. And Kim Kardashian photoshopped herself into our hearts and minds, causing an entire nation of people minor psychological damage.
But there are lots of mothers out there, thousands of them, in fact, who might deserve the title of “Mother of the Year.” Aside from her massive optical contribution to her own mother’s potential Presidential campaign, I can’t really see how Chelsea Clinton, mother of six-week-old Charlotte, can grab that title without a fight.
The media love affair with the Clintons continued when Katie Couric interviewed former first-daughter Chelsea Clinton this week for Yahoo News.
Being the respected journalist she is Couric asked the tough questions like “To have parents who are so accomplished, I’m wondering, was it difficult for you, Chelsea, harder, perhaps to find your own way, to make your own mark, when you have parents that are celebrated or as well known as yours are?”
…Couric then went on to say how honored Chelsea must feel for being nominated as one of Glamour Magazine’s “Woman of the Year” candidates. “and I think it’s safe to say, probably a ‘Mom of the Year.’” the anchor added.
Yes Mom of the Year. Chelsea has been a Mom for six weeks and according to Katie Couric she is in the running for Mom of the Year.
If there’s anything one could say about the Glamour Woman of the Year candidates, it’s that at least they don’t include Lena Dunham. But that’s ancillary to the point here. I’m not saying that there aren’t mothers of six-week-olds that could be considered mothers of the year. After all, just the mere act of popping out a child the size of a watermelon is more than enough to earn my respect. But maybe, just maybe, we’re jumping the gun on trying to crown a Clinton with a title they haven’t yet proven they deserve?
