Makes me think of Monticello

Talk about a rookie mistake. President Barry's press secretary let the thermostat out of the bag by revealing that The One like the Oval Office kept at subtropical temperatures. He'd better let his staff in on the fact that it won't do to rub the noses of the little people in the smelly fact that he's like most leaders in wanting us to "do as I say, not what I do."

At some level we realize that our leaders are eating high on the hog off of fine china in front of roaring fires up in the fancy rooms of the big house while we're eating scraps out of wooden bowls in our drafty little quarters in the basement; but that doesn't mean it's wise to say it out loud.

Makes me think President Barry shares some of Thomas Jefferson's ideas and attitudes with respect to social hierarchies. I hope he turns out to be as good a President as Massa Tom.
