Realizing the full potential of America


A Kenyan high school sent all uncircumcised boys home, telling them not to come back until they’ve had... um... you know... I’d make up a clever word-play on “no foreskin left behind,” really I would, but I think it’s best just to change subjects now.

To another news story containing more than you wanted to know: Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is going to have a hysterectomy.

Hope no one’s reading this post on Valentine’s Day.

Mitt Romney declared for president yesterday at the Henry Ford Museum, which was criticized for sending the message that you can have a president in any color you like, as long it’s not Barack Obama.

Bush was talking about volunteerism today. “We’ve got a lot of people volunteering in the country, and one of my calls is for people to do more of it.” Volunteerism is evidently another of those things that Bush thinks only Americans do: “we are a nation of people who take time out of their lives on a regular basis to help a fellow citizen realize the full potential of America.” Indeed, later in the day he volunteered at a local YMCA, where he helped some fellow citizens realize their full potential as props in his photo op. Literally props. Here he is picking out a new foot stool.


Really, I know he likes leaning on black people, but isn’t there a minimum size?
