Today Barack Obama jets off for a weeklong vacation on the fancy New England island of "Martha's Vineyard," a name derived from the Indian term for "many seersucker suit place." And what will he be doing there, you ask? Will he be listening to the voice of the people about health care reform? Will he be discussing the economy with his advisers?
Heavens, no. The president won't have time for such things! He'll be too busy snorting lobster rolls off John Kerry's chest and polishing his yacht to old Katharine Hepburn movies. Delightful amusements, to be sure, but is this the right signal to send when the rest of the country is in the grip of an econohealthcarepocalypse?
