The Barak and Michelle Obama New Yorker Magazine Cover

The 21 July 2008 cover of the New Yorker Magazine shows a caricature of Barak and Michele Obama. Barak is dressed in muslim attire with a turban, and sandals, and he is bumping fists with Michelle who is sporting an afro, wearing fatigues, combat boots and has a machine gun (assault rifle) strapped to her back. The two are standing in the oval office with a portait of Osama bin Laden hanging over the fireplace and the American flag burning within it.

The New Yorker says it is satire. It looks like fear of a Black President is really making people leave all the pretences behind.

Why can't we all just get along?

U.N. fails to pass sanctions against Zimbabwe

It is not often that sanctions are truly called for, but this is one of those times. Zimbabwe has become a dictatorship. Robert Mugabe has beaten and bullied any opposition into hiding and submission. He has run the country into the ground. Russia and China stood together and vetoed the "resolution that they said represented excessive interference in the country’s domestic matters." Incredible. So, the people of Zimbabwe will suffer and the world will watch and not come to their aid.

Condoleezza Rice

I have never liked anyone in politics as much as I like her. I know I have said it before, but I thought I would repeat it.
