Nothing cramps White House style
I love the ‘WONS’! In their neverending quest to enrich our lives (no, not through employment, lower gas or energy prices, or food prices) but, by having those lovely concerts and workshops by some of their most devout sycophantic fans in the entertainment industry. How gracious of them to have the concerts televised, with your tax dollars hard at work, for PBS. Their reasoning is just exquisite as they seek to reassure us they are doing this for “the little people” who can’t afford to go to concerts. But, in spite of their logic, and the sequester, there are small minded people who are still disgruntled over their own economic situation. Can’t they understand BO has the blues? He works so hard for us and needs a respite from the mean guys in Congress who refuse to ‘compromise’ on his tax and spend agenda. BO and MO have flown around the country on Air Force Won and Too calling for reform on everything embodied in our Constitution and, have earned a much needed break from all that campaigning for ‘hope and change’.
MO was exceedingly happy to host a workshop for 120 students to learn a little history of the ‘Memphis Soul‘ sound and, meet with the entertainers who created that particular brand of music. Well, not Justin Timberlake, who looked decidedly out of place at this particular event.
Like a “schoolgirl with the giggles” MO introduced “several Memphis musicians” to the attendees. Since all those singers and musicians were in DC for that very special workshop, why not call some people up and throw a concert? After all, why should just a few people get the benefit of all that talent? Besides this would give MO a chance to play dress- up, which she loves to do, and sing along to a Timberlake rendition of Otis Reddings’ ‘Dock of the Bay’.
A good time was had by all. Isn’t it wonderful that we paid for all this to give our very special First Family the grand evening they so richly deserve? As for the rest of us, we can watch it on PBS since there is so little left in our paychecks to attend concerts.
