Can anyone watch this, I don’t care who you are, and not come away a little creeped out and dubious that the White House’s motives with it’s snitch website are as pure as they pretend?
“We’re not keeping a list…we’re not keeping a list…we’re not keeping a list….that’s ludicrous! We’re not keeping a list…..did I mention we’re not keeping a list?”

Here’s the thing I don’t get, and most thinking people don’t get:
