Some Eat, Some Don't

The President’s top-secret 2-hour ground-time Thanksgiving stunt trip to Baghdad has, within the hour, been breathlessly announced by CNN.
As I've come to regularly expect, the President, in CNN’s words, “dished up sweet potatoes and corn” to 600 member of the US Army’s 1st Armored Division and the 82nd Airborne and then, according to Reuters, met with four member of the Iraqi Governing Council all within the heavily fortified confines of Baghdad’s Bush International Airport.
Start to finish, again according to Reuters, the 30-hour trip included 27 hours of flight-time.
With the bold exception of Baghdad correspondent Walter Rodgers, CNN, always in love with the drama of top-secret doings, only sees bold bravery in the President’s high security top-secret stunt.
Ah, my friends, there is trouble lurking when "bold" abounds!
Throughout the day’s Hoo and Ha it might be worth considering that certain US Senators are actually, with much less personal security, eating a Thanksgiving meal with American soldiers now serving on the front lines in Forgotistan.
The photograph shows US Senator and former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton eating, today, with US troops at Bagram Airbase north of Kabul.

Ho Ho Harvey!

Is Edna Turnblad as Mrs. Claus so wrong?
You go, er…girl?
