So back in September, whitehouse.gov’s blog waxed nearly poetic about Opening Up The People’s House. What a wonderful era of transparency is being ushered in. After all, it is the People’s house, not just the Whitehouse. Fast forward to November. The list is out for the first Obama State Dinner. An illustrious list includes the token Indian- at least the token Republican Indian. Is that some kind of caste system thing? Is a Republican Indian a dirty Indian? We don’t want too many of their kind at table? Bobby Jindal is, apparently, the only Republican invited. All the rest of the house-Republicans, please stay out of sight. This is the People’s house as long as you’re the correct people.
