Quote du jour

"As a (presumably) grown man, Barack Obama wrote a memoir in order to promote himself. He chose to highlight his dog-eating experience. He calculated that the incident would help portray him as worldly, adventurous, open-minded, and multicultural. But how could he have predicted nearly 20 years ago, when he wrote his story of race and inheritance, that Americans would find it would only paint him as submissive, self-satisfied, and out of touch with mainstream American culture?"

    1. Of course, that rather implies he wrote his own autobiography now, doesn't it?
