You can’t really blame Valerie Jarrett for backpedaling to avoid having to call the loyal Obama disciples over at MSNBC biased in this interview with Campbell Brown, but it’s fairly gobstopping to hear her blithely insist, “What the administration is saying is we’re going to speak truth to power.” Crikey! These people can’t get out of the ivy league bull session mentality—or is it Bill Ayers’ living room. Whatevs.
Valerie, hate to break it you, but you are the Power that Be, or, as Rocco “Barack Obama is the most powerful writer since Julius Caesar” Landesman, head of the National Endowment for the Arts—who Jarrett interviewed for the position, incidentally—would perhaps rather put it, the Romans.
Nevertheless, seeing as I hate to invalidate someone’s feelings, I’ve just now put my fist in air and am declaring my solidarity with you and all the other poor, downtrodden, oppressed revolutionaries in the West Wing. You shall overcome, I just know it!

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
