Let Me Get This Straight...

No laws are broken. No guns held to anyone's head. No quid pro quo. Just a conference call where suggestions for art topics that might be helpful to the administration to portray are discussed IN PASSING, and suddenly the right wing thinks they have a smoking gun from the Obama administration????

The NEA and the White House did encourage a handpicked, pro-Obama arts group to address politically controversial issues under contentious national debate. That fact is irrefutable.

(sic) And sick.
Wow, you mean politicians encourage like-minded people to speak up in support of their policies? Or is it anathema because those policies DON'T include killing South Asians?
Oh. Well. This IS disturbing! No administration should ever use its influence over, say, corporations or individuals to influence the national debate! It should clearly be the other way around!
Memo to conservatives: Just because you guys are thieving lying weasels with evil agendae does not mean that the rest of the country is similarly inclined and maybe you ought to consider psychotherapy for your deep, dark paranoia?
Who are these people and what country did they sneak into America from?
