It's a wonder that there is still room up under that yellow bus for more of Barack Obama's friends. The latest casualty to go under the bus wheels is Obama's friend and confidant Desiree Rogers.
The White House just released this statement:
"We are enormously grateful to Desiree Rogers for the terrific job she's done as the White House Social Secretary. When she took this position, we asked Desiree to help make sure that the White House truly is the People's House, and she did that by welcoming scores of everyday Americans through its doors, from wounded warriors to local schoolchildren to NASCAR drivers.
It was inevitable that Desiree had to go once the news broke about that reality TV couple who crashed a state dinner at the White House last year.
Rogers should have been manning her post at the gate checking to make sure her guests were actually invited. But instead she was inside the party looking cute and parading in front of the photographers. From the beginning it was clear that Desiree thought the White House was party central and she was the Grand Diva of the ball.
Even before she left Chicago bound for DC, rumors swirled that Desiree and Barack had a thing for each other. But those rumors died quickly when it became apparent that Obama is a cerebral narcissist, and most cerebral narcissists show no interest in sex at all.
It's almost a sure bet that Barack and Michelle have a sexless marriage which accounts for her flat affect and miserable disposition in public.
Anyway, I hate to toot my own horn and say that I was right about Desiree Rogers, but didn't I call it from the beginning?
