This just in from White House Dossier's Keith Koffler (via Drudge Report): "As part of its Easter Egg Roll festivities, the White House is conducting a basketball clinic for kids featuring pro players. Have a look the ball being used, as Tweeted by ABC White House Correspondent Jake Tapper."
Koffler adds: "Apparently, the basketball lesson doesn’t include instruction in humility."
Such self-puffery is a little, er, short of Christian modesty, wouldn't you say, Jim Wallis?

What happened to the great “Hush Rush” boycott?
There was a hue and cry from feminists and Obama bankroller George-Soros’ puppet media watchdog Media Matters for America, when Rush Limbaugh commented on his radio show about college student Sandra Fluke, who testified before Congress about how her promiscuous campus lifestyle costs her too much money for contraceptives—so she and other such women needed the federal government to pay for her “protection.”
Rush called her a “slut” and “prostitute,” which sparked the feigned outrage against him in the mainstream media. Rush later apologized for his choice of language—but not for his central point about the absurdity of Fluke’s demand. And herein lies the hope that America is NOT past the point of redemption or revival.
Think about the “result” of the great boycott: 1) Rush’s audience actually INCREASED—in some areas, it went up 65%; 2) The few advertisers who dropped Rush’s show were quickly replaced; 3) One advertiser who stopped advertising to Rush’s 20 million listeners, loudly protesting against him to the applause of the Left, saw its stock prices drop through the floor.
But how does this indicate America’s soul is not totally seared with a hot iron? Think of all those parents out there, trying their best to raise their children right. These multitude of parents—regardless of their situation, whether they lead two-parent or single-parent homes—who have at least an inkling of a conscience and to are raising their children to make right choices, simply asked themselves one or two questions. Questions which sank the “Hush Rush” crusade:
Would you want your own daughter saying those kinds of things in front of millions of people?
Would you want your son dating that kind of girl?
Those honest, concerned questions that crossed the minds of those parents sank the Soros-funded boycott like that iceberg sank the Titanic.
I have expressed concern about our culture, and how it has infected the church, especially the youth. And yet, this episode shows that there is a conscience left in this country—and that we should never lose heart in fervently praying for revival to sweep our land.
And Sandra, if you are so concerned about saving your college money, try this: ask Jesus into your heart as you Lord and Savior, receive forgiveness for all your sins through His blood that He shed for you on Good Friday, and as He said, "Go and sin no more." (John 8:11)
