All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

A Funny Thing Happened

Just this past weekend two funny things happened. The first thing was that the President lied on his census form. According to an article in The New York Times the President claimed he was black on his census form and made no mention of his mixed raced heritage. It seems to me that at the very least the President should fill out his form honestly if he expects others to be honest also. The second thing was that less than a week after it was revealed he and his family had not chosen a church since they moved to Washington he showed up with his family for Easter Services at a "historically" black church in a southeast section of the District. Both these things seem out of character for the Obama that has inhabited the White House. We were lead to believe this is not a man who wears his race on his sleeve. We were wrong. We were also led to believe he was man who could be fair. His failure to note his mixed racial heritage on his census form shows he is not.
