"Everyone knows only black people are Jelly Doughnuts."

I was just going through my gMail account which I do every month or couple of months just to check and see if anyone is writing me who doesn't have my other e-mail address. Hunts, who is usually quite astute and upstanding, sent this to my satteliteseattleite address a month or so ago, and I just found it. The e-mail was titled: "Oh shit, you may have to start a 2nd blog". You'll see why.

I love this, Hunts, BTW.

Obama Hopes To Go Where JFK Went Before

Barack Obama wants to hold a keynote speech on transatlantic relations in front of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate. But don't call him a "European."

By Gregor Peter Schmitz

July 9, 2008 | Barack Obama wants to hold a keynote speech on transatlantic relations in front of Berlin's Brandenburg Gate during his visit later this month. Spiegel Online has learned that he plans to outline a new foreign policy that consults partners more, but also makes clear demands on Europe.

The possibility has not been ruled out that the speech could instead be given in Paris or London -- the other planned stops on Obama's short Europe trip. But Obama's team likes the location of Berlin and the Brandenburg Gate. "The setting would be great," the advisor said. "The memory of John F. Kennedy's famous Berlin speech is still alive. Berlin is a bridge between East and West, and the German-American relationship is very strong," said the advisor.


Read the whole thing here, and see how it went down here.

A quote from his speech:

"While the 20th century taught us that we share a common destiny, the 21st has revealed a world more intertwined with Jelly Doughnuts than ever before. Yes, we can, together, put a Cake in every cakesaver."

Okay fine. It went a little differently. But that's pretty much the jist.
