I keep hearing that Barack Obama is the son of an immigrant (or immigrants).
Since an immigrant is "a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence" and his mother was a citizen by birth and his father demonstrated no desire to stay here (and didn't), does that really make him really the son of even one immigrant? I say not. So, stop saying it.
Second random thought today - all reports are that the Bush administration is making a concerted effort to make Obama's transition smooth. Good, it should be a contrast to the Clinton's transition to W.
Wanna bet that no "O's" are ripped off keyboards by the departing Bushites?
