Making It Official

Back in the days of my wasted youth, we used to sometimes refer to marriage as "making official what's been going on for some time anyway". So here we are, courtesy of Drudge, ABC is officially married to the Obama administration, making official what they've been doing for the last year anyway. The link may not work for very long, but I'll try to keep it current.

On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government run health care -- a move that has ignited an ethical firestorm!

Highlights on the agenda:

ABCNEWS anchor Charlie Gibson will deliver WORLD NEWS from the Blue Room of the White House.

The network plans a primetime special -- 'Prescription for America' -- originating from the East Room, exclude opposing voices on the debate.
This is the sort of thing usually reserved for declarations of war and the like rather than announcements that an additional 15-20% of the economy is about to be nationalized, in addition to most of the auto industry and banking system.

Come to think of it, maybe this is a declaration of war. Guess who the white house thinks the enemy is?
