  1. Another party. This one is in honor of BlackHistoryMonth.
    When I was a teenager, the only way we got to hear Black singers was on WAMO, a Pittsburgh radio station that operated from 3pm to 7pm.
    ElvisPresley wasn’t played on mainstream radio because he “sounded Negro”. LittleRichard,TheFourTops, speaking to rebellious teenagers with their 2. 4. beats was heady stuff. My all time favorite song is “Louie,Louie”.

  2. Teen idol, Nick Jonas of Jonas Brothers fame,is one of the headliners. He has about as much to do with Motown as Pat Boone does. However, he is the girl’s favorite. I haven’t read anywhere about this “abuse” of power but I don’t think a Republican could haven’t gotten away with it.

  3. Occassionally the liberals are right . . . .

    I just watched this MSNBC video (posted at and Chris Matthews, David Corn and Howard Fineman – all hardcore leftists – are *correct*, the Presidents statement was milquetoast:

    Every once in a while, Matthews will stop his Palin-bashing and hit the right note and sound like a real reporter. “The Presidents language was all diplomat-ese” said Fineman. Exactly. At times, even hardened leftists will have a conscience and take a stand.

    Thumbs up gentlemen.

  4. So, BoBo’s day doesn’t begin until after lunch and ends in time to have a snack before dinner and dress for the party.

    Exactly how does the White House defend this party lad’s schedule?

    • Don’t forget: White House Kitchen “Buffalo Wing” Sundays! Yep, but here’s the kicker. Only POTUS and the Secret Service know! FLOTUS is driven around the beltway in a motorcade and kept on the phone with her Hollywood friends (“Hey Donna Karen … LOVE the dress from the Grammy’s! Lunch at the White House?”) from 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. while POTUS pigs out on hot wings in the WH kitchen.
