I just don’t understand it.  The ability of the ruling class (politicians, though they aren’t really polite) to say one thing and do something completely different.

Headline 1: Obama Campaigning Quietly From the White House (from here).  And on the very same page where that story appeared, we have

Headline 2: Obama to Appear on ‘The Daily Show’ (from here).

Now it seems to me that those two headlines are opposites.  I’m going to quietly campaign in front of millions of people.  Sort of like swimming without getting wet.

Sort of like bailing out the economy.  Stupid.
