at a US State Dinner, does anyone actually believe this wasn't planned? Something along the lines of "You will play this song. If anyone does know what it is, and the President protests, here are the excuses and apologies, but I am wagering not one of them will have any idea."
And it wouldn't surprise me to find that there was a line somewhere about "Perhaps Mr./Ms. X will know, but I believe they will work with us."
Like Insty says, the country is in the very best of hands.
