Barack Obama’s Kenyan paternal grandmother, Sarah, is headed to DC for the inauguration.
She’d hoped to take a spear on the plane, in addition to other gifts, but that won’t be allowed for security reasons, obviously.
Can’t she read? We’ve all seen the signs at the airport: “All spears must be checked.” This sometimes explains why you’ll see a confused Britney tumbling down the luggage carousel after a flight — but Sarah should have known better. Even in Kenya, only the pilots are allowed to carry spears on an airplane.
Separate yet somewhat related question: How many living creatures will be killed next Tuesday in “celebration” of Obama’s inauguration, just like they were after his election? I’m betting that 341 cows, 62 turkeys, 58 goats, 54 pigs, 30 chickens, 16 hamsters and 5 cockroaches will join the Reverend Wright and William Ayers on the list of those who were sacrificed for Obama.
