Someone Give Obama a Fiddle

While the world watches Egypt exploding in revolution and holds its breath as the conflagration threatens to spread throughout the Middle East, President Obama was naturally occupied with ... dancing.

On Saturday night, Obama and several of his cabinet members boogied down at the going away party for senior adviser David Axelrod, the administration's own spinmeister.

And just in case you were wondering why you haven't heard about this in the mainstream media, that's because most of the journalistic bigwigs were at the party with Obama, including names like ABC's Jake Tapper, NBC's Chuck Todd, National Journal's Major Garrett, and John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times, according to White House reporter Keith Koffler.

If that doesn't convince you that the media are in Obama's pocket, bear in mind that the party was hosted at the home of Linda Douglass, former ABC reporter who joined the Obama administration to push the health care bill, now VP at Atlantic Media.

Hosni Mubarak was not invited.
