    The co-chair of Barack Obama's Transition Team, Valerie Jarrett, appeared on Meet the Press this weekend and used, shall we say, an interesting word to described what she thinks Barack Obama will be doing in January when he's officially sworn into office. She told Tom Brokaw that Obama will be ready to "rule" on day one. It's a word that reflects the worst fears that people have for Obama the "arrogant," the "messiah," that imagines he's here to "rule" instead of govern.

    Jarret told Brokaw that "given the daunting challenges that we face, it's important that president elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one."

    Rule? You can tell their intent from the language they use.

    I need more ammo.

    It used to be called public "service". Rule me? That's funny. Better men than him have tried.

    Rule me? Heh. I'd love to see him try... There's no questioning the intent.

    I'm sure he meant "rue" instead of "rule". And I'm sure he will, from day one.

    It even says "rule" in the Meet the Press transcript from NBC. :p

    "Subjects" don't have guns.

    We do, at least for a few more months. After that, we will be "subjects".

    Clearly, Miss Jarrett meant that Barack Obama will rewl, not rule.
