IT’S LOWER-CASE "D" DEMOCRACY, STUPID!


Valerie Jarrett, the co-chair of Barack Obama’s Transition Team, told Tom Brokaw of Meet the Press this weekend that “…it’s important that President-elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule from day one.”

Val, you’re kidding, right? Val? Anybody home?

I seem to remember that Barack Obama was elected President, not el Supremo.

There is a world of difference between “assuming the responsibilities of the office” “really tak[ing] power and begin[ning] to rule.”

I permit myself to hope that this was just a slip of the too-glib tongue that has come to typify the Obama machine; but if it is not, it sounds a lot like you guys are planning a restaging of the world-famous “Berlin 1933 Comedy Hour.”
