President Obama is confronted with difficult decisions every day. Should we send troops into the Congo? How can Congress be pushed into action on his jobs plan? Should Malia and Sasha be allowed to watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians?

Apparently if it were up to him, the answer would be "no." But it's not up to him, of course, as Michelle Obama says in an interview with iVillage:

Are any shows off limits? "Barack really thinks some of the Kardashians — when they watch that stuff — he doesn't like that as much," said the First Lady, "but I sort of feel like if we're talking about it, and I'm more concerned with how they take it in — what did you learn when you watched that. And if they're learning the right lessons, like, that was crazy, then I'm like, okay."

We actually agree with Michelle, here: Keeping Up With the Kardashians is very educational, in the sense that it teaches you exactly how not to behave, ever.
