This is so unfair. I would be willing to say unexpected but dumb things if only I could have my own column in the NY Times. Here we learn our young President gets credit for the uprising in Tunisia, Egypt and across the Arab world. How, might well you ask? Not by doing anything. That would be so, so 20th century, pre- flat- world thinking. No, it is just by being who he is, young, handsome, and of color, that the O inspired this great movement toward, uh, freedom or something. Maybe he deserves another Nobel Peace Prize? TF's other causes of this perhaps great historical moment are even more unexpected. Google Earth. Palestine's new PM. I guess that's why TF gets to produce more global warming gases than the next ten thousand of us put together.
