Cultural Post at White House

NY Times gets (while simultaneously missing) the story...
President Barack Obama has established a staff position in the White House to oversee arts and culture in the Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs...Mr. Ivey, a former chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, said he expected that the job would mainly involve coordinating the activities of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute of Museum and Library Services “in relation to White House objectives.” Although there have been staff members assigned to culture under past presidents, they usually served in the first lady’s office, Mr. Ivey said.

Can you say "propaganda"? I thought you could. And, of course, other than paying the mortgages for people that bought more house they could afford, and paying for illegitimate children of unemployed single mothers, nothing makes me happier than paying for propaganda from a White House with whom I agree on nothing.

Ah, hope and change...
