Reflections on the News

Here's the best one-liner I've heard/read this week:

AL FRANKEN THOUGHT: Caligula sent a horse to the Senate. Minnesota is just sending part of the horse.

I'd been thinking of Kitty Genovese, as applied to foreign policy, even before seeing this cartoon:

(If you can't remember events from 1964, just search on her name.)

Michael Ramirez also brought a laugh, as he often does. It's just because his cartoons are so true.

UPDATE: Just read this comment (in the second item, " Heads Obama Wins, Tails You Lose") on the Honduran situation:

Zelaya's ouster is no "coup" but a lawful transition of power made necessary by his own defiance. As our colleague Mary O'Grady points out, the Honduran Supreme Court had ordered a halt to his unconstitutional efforts to extend his term, and the military arrested him for defying the court's order. It's as if the Angry Left's paranoid fantasy had come true and George W. Bush refused to leave office this January.
