Maybe at some point Obama will make some sort of address to the nation, and maybe he won't. Chances are, if he does, our involvement in Libya will probably be couched in the same euphemistic terms we've already heard.

The piece sprawls on and on, but it never even attempts to move beyond insider sources who evince no knowledge whatsoever as to how actual Americans are living in the economy. The singular takeaway is that inside the bubble, everyone is doing pretty well in this economy. We'd send you a postcard, but who knows if you'll be in your home a week from now?

Nevertheless, the Shirley-Sherrod-fiasco-as-teachable-moment idea came up at yesterday's White House press briefing with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, so let's get into it.
