Valerie Jarrett to uniformed general: More wine, garçon!
Daily Caller ^ | 02.01.2011 | Mike Riggs

Posted on 02/01/2011 2:20:34 PM PST by OldDeckHand

In Washington, bigwigs can misspeak and misstep a million times without drawing attention. And then there are the seemingly harmless moments that stick to a person like super glue: Joe Wilson barking “You lie!”; Jesse Jackson mumbling into a hot mic that he wants to castrate Barack Obama; Dan Quayle trying to spell things.

Like coal crushed into diamonds by the pressure of a million eyeballs, such moments are forever.

During an exclusive dinner hosted Monday by the Alfalfa Club, Obama adviser Valerie Jarret had just such a moment. And were it not for an irritated tipster, Jarret might have walked away from the dinner unblemished.

According to our tipster, Jarrett was seated at the head table along with several other big-name politicians and a handful of high-ranking military officials. As an officer sporting several stars walked past Jarrett, she signaled for his attention and said, “I’d like another glass of wine.”

Unbelievable.

I'm reminded of a story that I have heard former Miss America, Vanessa Williams, tell on several talk shows. She alleges that she was at a state dinner sometime during Clinton's tenure (I think), and a women asked her for another plate as she was making her way through the dinning room. The import being that this woman was racist, because William - a black woman - must have been the help because black people in the White House are only domestic servants.

Who's the "racist" now?

I’m thinking she knew he was a General. That’s just how she treats military personnel.

"I’m thinking she knew he was a General."

I agree. This story is to try and "get ahead" of the PR on it and characterize it as a mistake of some sort rather than the deliberate slur it was intended to be.

I remember reading about the Clinton crowd having officers do menial things just to entertain themselves and that attitude runs all through the whole democrat fascist party and all those working for it. Ever since Johnson the democrat party has become ever more hostile to anyone in the military and ever more desirous of creating their own army like the SA was in Germany.

The Serb / Slovic gang who mistook Albright for a hotel maid was just classic!

Or the NK General who asked her to carry his bags was good too.

Less than two years until these dregs get swept from Washington. Which reminds me, I’ve got to call my state reps about getting some legislation going having to do with fraudulent voter registrations.

No - just contempt. But the military brass and intelligence agencies are behind the muslim and do his bidding.

The American public just drools as they watch TV and accept their serfdom.

Did the General call her “Ma’am” or did she demand to be called something else (a la Barbara Boxer)?

I can imagine what he WANTED to call her!

What a class act the officer was. Calmly walked over and gave her some wine. That is the definition of a Gentleman.

She is no lady.

I mean, I hate to say this, but why are so many Democrat women as ugly as sin, both inside and outside. Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Barbara Boxer, Barbara Lee, Maxine Waters....one could go on and on pointing out the ugly disgruntled witches that call themselves Democrat!!! Most of ‘em hate America, but they must hate themselves more!!!

“The guy dutifully went up and got her a glass of wine, and then came back and gave it to her and took a seat at the table,”

A gentleman, even in the face of such ignorant effrontery.

Hate to be the historian here, but the SS was the Party’s army. The SA WAS the party, and grew up from grassroots hooliganism. The SS was deliberately created to carry out the wishes of Hitler and his buddies. Hitler even called it the military wing of the NSDAP.

That being said...ew...loogies in drinks...

A very similar thing happened to me in Chicago some years ago. I had led my battalion in the Armed Forces Day parade in downtown Chicago and was invited to the city’s Armed Forces Ball. I attended wearing my most formal uniform, a Mess Jacket which does not extend below the waist. During the cocktail hour, I was talking with the 5th Army Commander, who was also wearing his Mess Jacket, which was distinguished by three embroidered stars on each sleeve. One of Chicago’s Doyen Matron’s approached and asked for another glass of wine which the General left to fetch. While he was away, I mentioned to this lady that she had just sent a three-star General on an errand. She was horrified and apologized profusely when he returned.

Civilians are completely ignorant about such things, but someone who is in government ought to know better.

Especially someone working at the White House for the last two years. Officers are in Dinner Dress there ALL the time.

Of course, she could be incurably stupid.

“The guy dutifully went up and got her a glass of wine, and then came back and gave it to her and took a seat at the table,” our tipster said. “Everyone is in tuxedos and gowns at this thing, but the military people are in full dress uniform.”

I'm sure being a officer and a gentlemen he would have treated her with the utmost respect.

Rom 12:20: On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."

I'm sure somewhere down the line they will meet again and Jarrett will know she made an ass of herself

“Garcon” in French means “boy”.

(And, if you address a French waiter as “garcon”, he’s liable to spit in your soup - it’s considered very rude).

I agree also, she was born in Iran to American parents and can still speak the language.
