Something surprising and ironic has happened as this presidential race hit the homestretch: Foreign media provided two big embarrassments for the Obama and McCain campaigns.
First, a British newspaper – the Times – revealed that Barack Obama’s aunt from Kenya, Zeituni Onyango, is living in a Boston housing project. According to the Associated Press, she is an illegal immigrant.
Then came news yesterday that Sarah Palin has been pranked by a couple of radio tricksters in Montreal. Audio of a ridiculous phone conversation between Palin and a guy she presumed to be the president of France is now all over the Internet.
If you haven’t heard it yet, it is embedded below.
Time for this chaotic campaign to end already.
