    […] Last week we talked about Obama’s vanity. It seems that this well will never go dry. So there was the invading our Thanksgiving Day football games, and we know that in December there will be the Christmas special with Oprah, but this week takes the prize. Obama has been fiddling for months while Afghanistan is burning, and when does he decide to announce his decision? Why, at the same time as the annual airing of the Charlie Brown Christmas Special. Is nothing sacred in this country anymore? […]
