已有 42 次阅读2012-2-29 12:52 |

A few months ago, we offered up a meager plea to the Obama family that they consider sending their kids to a DC public school. They ignored us and enrolled Sasha and Malia at the tony Sidwell Friends in upper Northwest DC,his network was known for its brutality&mdash, which supporters contended offered superior safety and a Quaker education. Today,Stewart is a great comedian,www.burberrysac.net, the Obamas discovered one of the drawbacks of their choice. Washington awoke this morning encrusted in ice after the city's first big winter storm. Sidwell shut down for the day, leaving Sasha and Malia stuck at home. The DC public schools, meanwhile, merely opened a little late. (They were also open as usual yesterday when virtually every suburban school district shut down because of a few snow flurries.) The school closing prompted Obama to offer an unsolicited comment to the press this morning about Washington famous weather wimpiness. He though his kids' school closing was a bit extreme: "Because of what? Because of some ice?" Obama said to laughter around the table. He said Sasha,nike shox canada, his 7-year-old,www.sacprada.net/11-loisirs-sac-prada, pointed out that in Chicago, not only is school never canceled for snow, "you'd go outside for recess. You wouldn't even stay indoors." He concluded by saying: "We're going to have to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town. I'm saying that when it comes to the weather, folks in Washington don't seem to be able to handle things." Hopefully someone will point out to the president that the city's public schools were showing plenty of flint this morning. It was only Washington's elite who were afraid of a little ice.Advertise on MotherJones.comStephanie MencimerReporterStephanie Mencimer is a staff reporter in Mother Jones' Washington bureau.

THE OBAMA TAPES....In an update on Michael Malone's General Theory of Media Tankiness for Barack Obama, John Derbyshire offers a Special Theory of Media Tankiness for Barack Obama that applies only to the LA Times. Sam Zell and Hank Paulson are involved. And a unicorn. For those of you with the good sense not to have followed this story, it's about a piece the Times ran a few months ago describing a testimonial dinner in Chicago for Rashid Khalidi, a professor of Arab studies now at Columbia University. The Times has a videotape of Barack Obama's speech at the event, and wingers everywhere are demanding that they release it so that Fox News can put it on a 24/7 loop over the weekend. The Times says it can't release the tape because they promised their source they wouldn't, but conservoland unanimously agrees that only fools and knaves believe this transparently ridiculous story. The Times is really holding it back because Khalidi shouted "Death to Israel" on the tape while Bill Ayers lit an Israeli flag on fire, and Barack Obama laughed and clapped while all this was going on. It's unclear, of course, why the Times even revealed the existence of this testimonial dinner in the first place if they were so in the tank for Obama, but I'm sure the wingers have an explanation for that. Conspiracy theorists always do. Stay tuned. UPDATE: I don't actually know anything about Khalidi myself,He was drinking beer again,nike shox norge, but it's worth noting that he's a perfectly respectable scholar with mildly pro-Palestinian views that the McCain campaign is trying to use in one of their usual cackhanded efforts to convince the rubes that Obama is a radical/Muslim/Jew-hating/terrorist sympathizer. Hell,chaussures prada, even Marty Peretz is standing up for Khalidi. Jo-Ann Mort has more here. Only four more days until this vile swill finally comes to an end.Advertise on MotherJones.comKevin DrumPolitical BloggerKevin Drum is a political blogger for Mother Jones.
