1. I am amused by people who report the goings-on at Drudge...
...as if it was the homepage of cnn.com.

3. I completely missed that when I was there earlier

I just glanced at it and saw it was a picture of Obama with a bunch of people around him. I had a fleeting thought that it was a little strange to have a black and white picture there. Upon further inspection, the picture is a bit blurred and seems like a 1950's/early 1960's vintage picture. Something that evokes memories of the civil rights movement. That pic implies that the Negroes are planning and plotting just like they did in the 50's and 60's.

Yup, that's a highly racist picture. Subtle but extremely racist.
