Unrest in Tibet . . .

. . . how can you not be on the side of the little guy in the blue hat?

Freaky Friday . . .

. . . or, just another day in American politics.

Item the first:
A few words from that font of wisdom, AKA Harvard-educated Barack Obama (about his granny):

She is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, well there's a reaction that's in our experiences that won't go away and can sometimes come out in the wrong way.

Now, having matriculated from a nice, but decidedly non-ivy league college, I'm not sure what a "typical white person" is, but I'm guessing it's not someone who is likely to hand a ladder down to Mr. Obama to help him out of the hole he's digging with the help of Jeremiah Wright. Notwithstanding the fact that Chris Matthews got all damp in the panties over Obama's speech, I don't think that approach is particularly productive. Throwing your granny under the bus for political gain is slightly south of genteel.

Item the second:
A few words from that paragon of veracity, Mrs. Hillary Clinton:

"I have been a critic of NAFTA from the very beginning."

Hillary, sweetie, you just released your records - under duress, I might add - and it seems you're not being completely truthful. Honestly, "I did not have sex with that treaty" doesn't work for you either.

Item the third:
Released records now indicate that Hillary was home in the Whitehouse when the "stain" appeared on the blue dress. I am quite qualified in the ins and outs of statistics (pun intended), but the permutations and combinations of those three in the same house at the same time are too horrible to comprehend. I believe the current venacular is "ewwwwww!"
