58. DU them and demand an apology, folks! This is asinine. Here's mine:
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 09:13 PM by Hekate
What on earth were you thinking to run a photo of Osama bin Ladin with "Where's Obama?" across it? Senator Barack Obama is owed a public apology by CNN. The person(s) responsible for such an egregious act of disrespect (propaganda?) should be harshly disciplined if not fired.
