Nice. It's a good thing Mrs. Palin didn't pull this one.

Did you read the end of the story?

"The now online-only Christian Science Monitor reports (http://features.csmonitor.com/politics/2009/03/23/obama-writes-letter-to-chirac-blogosphere-goes-crazy/) that Obama was simply replying to a letter from Chirac "who was writing him as the head of his foundation - the Jacques Chirac Foundation for sustainable development and cultural dialogue". Perhaps the hair-trigger settings of the Obama gaffe detectors are leading to a few shots going wide of the mark. "




....perhaps.

EDIT: By the way, the blogger mistake seemed to stem from the fact that those misinterpreting the article simply couldn't speak French so they had to make up the parts of the story they couldn't understand. Why doesn't that surprise me. The Christian Science monitor story is at http://features.csmonitor.com/politics/2009/03/23/obama-writes-letter-to-chirac-blogosphere-goes-crazy/

The Mullahs in Iran are loving Obama overtures too!!
I'm told, Let's sit down and talk= we surrender in the Arab/Persian world.
Meanwhile why don't we alianate our strongest allies like Britain---
