Sunday wash day

In the world of politics, Sunday is wash day. Bad news is best delivered on Sunday because the voter is taking the day off. White collar workers spend Sundays away from the TV, radio, and computer.

It is the day to sleep in, play a round of golf, go to the beach, do the crossword puzzle, and go to church (Yes, 38% of us claim to go to church each week).

So, get the bad news out on Sunday and by Monday the story will be gone.

And if it’s REALLY bad news, send out your talking heads to appear on the Sunday news specials. Only the wonks and your mother watch the boring, hour-long, news programs like Face the Nation. And lazy news reporters if they’re sober.

And if it’s REALLY, REALLY bad news you do it on a three day weekend. By Tuesday only the most controversial topics will have any life in them.

And so it is with the Obama administration. Things are a mess in the White House right now.
~Health Care Reform needs a major rewrite
~Van Jones the Communist is not only radical and racially motivated…he’s also a conspiracy theorist
~Obama’s back-to-school speech idea was a disaster
~The stimulus plan is a huge success only in the mind of Joe Biden
~Afghanistan is painted by the media as a bloody battle not worth the effort

So Van Jones resigns at midnight on Saturday and the White House staff puts on their makeup for Sunday performances:
~Press Secretary Robert Gibbs goes on Pravda (er…ABC News This Week with Stephanopolis)
~PR chief David Axelrod was on Meet the Press
~Secretary of Education Arne Duncan appeared on Face the Nation

Wow! The dirty laundry must be piling up inside the Beltway.

Oh, and the illegal aliens are marching in Chicago today, thanks to the support from the labor unions.
(At least their “assimilation” has advanced to the point where they are marching on OUR Labor Day, not the socialist/communist one of May 1st. Duh!)

With what appears to be a perpetual boneheaded agenda, the talking heads in the White House aren’t likely to get a Sunday off any time soon!
