Sea of Reads

Peripatetic, itinerant, eclectic musings about books, politics, history, language, culture, and anything else that interests me.

A Shocking Scandal Nipped in the Bud

I hope you’re sitting down. Earlier today, a blogger named Rob Port reported that, while in Washington, D.C., to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference, he took a tour of the White House Library and discovered that Michelle Obama stocked said library with socialist books.

Fortunately, The Washington Post‘s book blog, Short Stack, provides the reassuring news that it is not true. Or, to be more exact, it’s true that the White House Library contains books with “Socialist” or “Socialism” in their titles, but Michelle Obama did not put them there — they have been there since 1963.

Another national security catastrophe averted. Phew!
