Behold, the evolution of community organizing.
The Washington Times reports that “the Obama administration invited top editors of three of Washington’s local luxury lifestyle magazines — Capitol File, DC magazine and Washington Life — to a meeting where they discussed, among other things, how President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama can embrace Washington’s glittery social scene.”
“A White House aide who spoke on the condition of anonymity,” the Times’ story continued, “dismissed the notion that a publicly populist Obama White House is privately courting socialites, contending that the meeting was held to explore how the Obamas can ‘engage in the community.’”
White House social secretary Desiree Rogers has said she intends to make the White House the “people’s” mansion. Obviously, she meant to say the “People magazine’s” mansion.
