Gee, Look at the Communists!
I'm really peeved about an item I read in today's news.
It seems someone sent out an e-mail with a photo in it of Sen. Obama wearing the native dress of Kenya when he visited there in 2006 as a senator.
Matt Drudge posted it, alleging it originated from Camp Hillary.
Though I wouldn't entirely dismiss the charge offhand, I don't think Hillary or her aides would be ignorant or intolerant enough to make Obama's costume an issue.
In an era when Bush has destroyed so much of America's global goodwill, I think any legislator who visits another nation on our behalf should consider paying respects by wearing traditional garb, even if only for a brief photo op.
I have teased about Obama and his followers, but I'll defend him to the end when he's being singled out for cheap shots like this.
If Hillary was behind this, she deserves to lose. It's dirty, xenophobic politics at its worst. But it smells more to me like a GOP trick, and Matt Drudge is an admitted Republican.
