Dancing With the Enemies

Earlier today, Barack Obama spoke at the United Nations and threw both the United States and Israel under the bus. According to the president, America is no greater than any other county and Israel illegally occupies areas of Pakistan.

"The United States does Israel no favors when we fail to couple an unwavering commitment to its security with an insistence that Israel respect the legitimate claims and rights of the Palestinians. And nations within this body do the Palestinians no favors when they choose vitriolic attacks over a constructive willingness to recognize Israel's legitimacy, and its right to exist in peace and security," Obama said.

He also said, "The United States stands ready to begin a new chapter of international cooperation, one that recognizes the rights and responsibilities of all nations. So with confidence in our cause and with a commitment to our values, we call on all nations to join us in building the future that our people so richly deserve. "

Is this the change people voted for?

Since politics is so depressing, let's talk dancing. The Dancing With the Stars season started this week. There are some train wrecks (Ashley Hamilton and Chuck Liddell) and there were some stars (Aaron Carter, Mya, Joanna Krupa). There are those with potential (Melissa Joan Hart, Donny Osmond, Mark Dacascos, Natalie Coughlin) Tonight is elimination night. Let's hope that the train wrecks are removed first.
