Irony much?

JERUSALEM - Hundreds of Palestinians marched through the streets of Jerusalem Thursday to protest plans to build a museum because part of it would be sited atop part of a centuries-old Muslim cemetery.

The museum in question?

"The Museum of Tolerance is intended to promote understanding in a city
divided by ethnic and religious rivalries."

Umm, yeah. Great job, there, guys.

Maybe for an encore you can stage a human rights sit-in by blocking a hospital emergency room entrance.

I'm calling the election...

For America.

Early reports (plus early voting initiatives) indicate that people are determined to vote, and are not going to be discouraged by false fliers or calls about the day/time/location of voting, or negative ads, or just about anything else.

And, despite the flurry of negative ads (especially here in Oregon), interviews I've read with actual voters seem to indicate they're voting FOR a candidate they like, and not just AGAINST a candidate they fear/dislike/distrust (though of course there are some of those, too).

So, way to go, America!
