This makes me feel better

So, when I got home, I found this on Obama's website. Which makes me feel better about Obama, but much much worse about his supporters.

(Except for you, Twilleys. And Judee. Well, maybe this just makes me feel worse about this dumb lady.)

"This is a volunteer office that is not in any way controlled by the Obama campaign. We were disappointed to see this picture because it is both offensive to many Cuban-Americans -- and Americans of all backgrounds -- and because it does not reflect Senator Obama’s views. Barack Obama has been very clear in putting forward a Cuba policy that is based on one principle: freedom for the Cuban people." -- Obama Campaign

Ha ha. :)

I'm not an Obama supporter (but it is safe to say that Gene is). I just know there can be 2 sides to every story. :)

Well, apparently, the other side to that story is that Obama didn't know his volunteers were doing that. Which is actually the best possible "other side" in my opinion.

It happens when there are millions of people backing you;-)

And people are stupid. They just don't see Che as a murderer, but as a revolutionary. (And I guess Stalin and Kim Jong Il and Hitler were/are revolutionaries too to them.) The thing that really really bothered me about the whole thing was that Obama didn't address it. But then he did. So, I can get over it.

He does have some supporters out there, no doubt.
