48. Joe Conason refers to Kenya as Obama's homeland
"It is true that Mr. Obama, whose family is Luo, lent support to the opposition leader during a visit to Kenya two years agoand that they have maintained contact ever since. While that gaffe infuriated the Kibaki regime, it proved only that Mr. Obama lacked diplomatic experience. During the current crisis in his homeland, he has tried to play a constructive role by taping radio announcements for the State Department that urge both sides to stop fighting and resolve their differences without violence."

What's up with that, I wonder?
