The Times Online (UK) had an interesting take on educating its readers about the presumptive nominee of the Democrat Party for President of the United States -
They should have added under "J" the word "jettison" ... and under the letter "L" - lightweight.
J is for Jakarta, where Obama went to school until he was ten. J is also for the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the black Chicago church pastor who baptised the Obama children. Obama disowned him after his race-tinged rants threatened to alienate white voters
K is for Kenya, the country where Obama's grandfather was a domestic servant to the British. Also for Dennis Kucinich, the no-hope Democratic contender that Obama accidentally voted for in the Illinois primary
L is for Leo, Obama's starsign . Also for Luo, his family's tribal heritage in Kenya
One wonders what other about-faces (as in "throw under the bus" - a suggestion for the letter "T") and changes in direction Mr. Obama will perform in order to become president ... establish a "war footing"?
