WP: [Favreau] Helping to write history

a minor celebrity [...] whose silly Facebook photos with a  Hillary Rodham Clinton cutout created what passes for controversy in Obama's so far drama-free transition. [....] At a party at his parents' house over Thanksgiving vacation, [Favreau] danced and posed awkwardly next to a cardboard cutout of Clinton. A buddy uploaded photos onto Facebook, reporters discovered them, and suddenly experts were debating Favreau's maturity on television. Favreau called Clinton and Obama to apologize. They told him not to worry, but he still does.

The Washington Post article on Favreau is thoroughly annoying. It looks like a planned, positive-spin-damage-control-piece to get Favreau out of the dog house and to endear him to the public . . .

We need to KEEP THE PRESSURE ON. The comments page appears to be working now. Post your comments at: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/12/17/AR2008121703903_Comments.html

Thanks. The site still does not work right for me, but perhaps will for others.
