Let Them Eat Cake

While I'm sitting here running Excel spreadsheets to try and decide if we will be able to keep our home* should the Obama budget pass in something close to its current form, The Obamas are partying like it's 1999.

"At the dinner in the State Dining Room, the Obamas looked comfortable, chatting and smiling with their guests. Afterward, they escorted the governors down the hall to the East Room, which had been arranged with few tables and chairs to encourage dancing to "September," "Boogie Wonderland" and other hits from a musical group Obama listened to growing up."

Husband grew up in North Saint Louis listening to the same music, but there's not a whole lot of conga line going on in this house these days.

HT: The Anchoress, who has the greatest tag line ever: "When small men begin to cast big shadows, it means that the sun is about to set." Sweet.

*Answer: most probably NOT. Thanks Mr. President.
