    The coming weekend will be a painful one for Desiree Rogers, the beautiful former White House Social Secretary who discovered that outshining Michelle Obama is a very, very bad idea.
    ...
    The president is going.

    The first lady is going.

    First daughters Sasha and Malia will be there.

    But Desiree Rogers, the first African-American to become the White House Social Secretary, has been dissed.

    Translation: Rogers has not been invited to the backyard Kenwood wedding this weekend for the daughter of the ultimate White House insider/Rogers' former "closer-than-glue" best friend, White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett.


    For those who do not follow the ins-and-outs of Versailles-on-the-Potomac, Valerie Jarrett is widely regarded as THE most powerful White House advisor of all. Former Obama chiefs of staff Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley crossed her, and both are back in Chicago. Incidentally, they aren't invited to the wedding either.

    Sneed explains the depth of the diss:

    ...


    Does this all matter? Is it merely catty, trivial, gossipy trash unworthy of a serious political website? In a more serious administration, where cabinet secretaries actually met with the president more than once or twice and exercised substantive responsibilities instead of "czars" personally beholden to the first family, where well defined roles and responsibilities marked the White House bureaucracy, and where the first lady confined her role to symbolic activities and advocacy, the answer would be yes.

    But the Obama White House is a different sort of animal entirely. Like a decadent monarchy, the favor of the potentate and the potentate's wife count for much too much in the Obama administration, and the social life, celebrity, and glamour of life at the top seem to eat up far more time than convening cabinet meetings.

    We are reduced to reading tea leaves in the social calendar to understand the power dynamics of our national leadership. Another sign of an incipient banana republic.

    For those that don't know Michelle fired Desiree Rogers, her social secretary, after she posed in designer clothes and jewellery for Vogue.

    Ok I'll make fun of that, but why is that a firable offense? Again outshinning Michelle?

    I couldn't get more than halfway through the op without my conscience beating me over the head with a frying pan for wasting time on this gossipy irrelevance.

    :thup:
