OK, I hope we’re not reading too much into this, but in the course of responding to media requests regarding the Jonas Brothers keffiyeh controversy, one of my interns alerted me to a story in the Indian press that revealed that Barack Obama’s daughters are big fans of the keffiyeh-wearing Jonas Brothers. All I can say is, “Oy.”
Now, I’m not one of those McCain supporters who believes in perpetuating ugly innuendos about Barack Obama’s faith or even his middle name. I believe Senator McCain can win in November fair and square. But….
First Meghan McCain wears a few mis-chosen keffiyehs, and next the Obama girls will be spotted wearing Che Guevara t-shirts. At this rate, it may not matter who wins the election: the Jonas Brothers will play the inaugural ball, Miley Cyrus will be showering in the Lincoln bedroom and Chief Justice Roberts will terror-fist bump whoever he swears in over the Koran. Makes me wish for the days when the Beatles were the biggest threat to national security.
