Back to Work

Iowahawk hosts another Dear Barry advice column. In this installment, we find Very Barry advice on getting along with the neighbors, how to hide your lifestyle from your sweetheart, and what to do when your spouse has the social grace of a gnu.

Frank J welcomes us back from Memorial Day, and reports success and glory found in punching some hippies. Catching up on the Hillary-Barack race, he compliments Hillary on the excellent restraint she showed in not making a direct death threat against Senator Obama. One has to admire skill where he finds it. Not to dwell on the negative, Frank then rejoices about the wonderful things we get with a McCain campaign.

Ace of Spades notes that Senator Obama claimed his uncle helped liberate Auschwitz. The problem is, of course, that Auschwitz was liberated by the Soviets. And we also know that Obama's mother was an only child. Therefore, the only Obama uncle who could have helped liberate Auschwitz (or anywhere else) was his father's brother. But Kenya didn't fight in WWII. Perhaps Obama meant his grandfather, who apparently served under Patton in the war. Patton liberated Buchenwald. But no one's ever heard of Buchenwald, so let's just say Auschwitz.

[Update 5:50PM: it was his mother's uncle, his great-uncle, who served under Patton, and that's of whom he was speaking. ]

That is the most succinct summary of Obama's latest gaffe I've read yet on the Internet. And funny, too. You could rename this to "Loren's Funny News Wire." :-) ~Jimmy
