On Christmas day in Peru, Virgen Maria and her husband Jorge (a carpenter by trade) had a baby - by cesarean section, and they decided to name him Jesus. Just in time for Christmas a prominent member of the RNC circulated a CD featuring the song Barack the Magic Negro. Israel is bombing the shit out of the Gaza strip in retaliation for the rockets that Hamas is lobbing into Isreal. What can we hope for in 2009? Have a happy new year!
