    In his attempt to embarrass President Obama, Sen. Kyl put our country last against his own deranged political party.

    I hope the South Korean president is briefed on the fact that he and his country need not worry about the carnival of right-wing freaks running for President Obama's job. Hopefully he'll understand that they are for entertainment purposes only.
