what is it, death wish on the part of this lady? the communists and
the mullahs will now be screaming bloody murder.
i wish i could have seen romila thapar's and irfan habib's faces when
they heard about this.
an ill-timed and premature discovery of vertebrae by the woman who
would be president?
or should we now say, "would-have-been-president"?
i do feel sorry for her press secretary.

the truth virus. after all, she's merely telling the truth.
thanks to AH for the pointer.
