Scene in Public


Yup. That's him. Watching a ball game and drinking a beer.

According to an article in today's New York Times, he went to a (Chicago, of course) Bulls/Wizards game recently. And he and Michelle have even (gasp!) dined out at Washington restaurants like Equinox, Bobby Van's Steakhouse and other spots not normally associated with presidential appearances.

Whose cockamamie idea was this, anyway? Doesn't he know that a president isn't supposed to venture outside the bubble that is the White House with its sycophantic, self-referential babble? And how welcome a sign is that?

More to the point, even: What beer is he drinking?

I don't think he'd sobered up when he signed the latest spending legislation.

I can't imagine anything he'd do would be thoughtless, whether you agree with his actions or not. Me, I applaud him (and the congress) and hope to heck it works!
