King Tut-tut

Joe Conason and I are back on the same side after a brief and mild estrangement.

The reason the media love tut-tutting stories about pot-smoking celebrities (not to mention blow job stories and drunk driving stories and Amy Winehouse breakdown stories and commando miniskirt stories and missing blond white girl stories and ...), the reason they love these stories is that they provide circus for the king to distract viewers from the real power they king's men hold over us.

Of course I'm not calling Obama king. He's only the President, not even part of the permanent ruling class that acts as if it were king.
