“Obama taps Jon Bon Jovi for new advisory board,” the Washington Post reports:
Looks like all those years of performing for Democratic candidates has paid off: President Obama is tapping rocker Jon Bon Jovi to serve on a new presidential advisory council.
The White House announced Tuesday that Bon Jovi (or is it just Jovi?) will join the new 25-member White House Council for Community Solutions, a panel established to provide advice on “the best ways to mobilize citizens, nonprofits, businesses and government to work more effectively together to solve specific community needs.”
The 2009 Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act established the panel, which also includes eBay CEO John Donahoe and Starbucks Vice President Paula Boggs and Rockefeller Foundation President Judith Rodin.
As Iowahawk tweets, “Latest casualty of Obamanomics: the satire industry.”
Incidentally, I wonder if an even bigger New Jersey rocker shot Obama down, despite his own decades of busking for Democrats and their causes.
