Going on vacation.

Until May 14, I'll be on vacation, so posting will be light -- if at all.

Taking a little trip with Mrs. Instaputz, drinking some wine -- and enjoying the socialism Mediterranean climate.

I'm sure in my absence, Putz will continue to leap in Pavlovian fashion at every faux Obama "controversy" -- like the "fake girlfriend."

Notes Weigel:
Obama lied! Except -- wait, hang on, anyone who reads Dreams From My Father starts with this disclaimer.
For the sake of compression, some of the characters that appear are composites of people I’ve known, and some events appear out of precise chronology. With the exception of my family and a handful of public figures, the names of most characters have been changed for the sake of their privacy.
This has been known for years. Obama's memoir has stymied reporters because characters who might have some insights appear in composite form. The most famous of them, up to now, was a guy named "Ray," who gets all of Dreams's "angry black dude" lines. Is it kosher for a future president to write like this and then be cagey about who was who? Interesting discussion! But in 2012, you can't "admit" something you told book-buyers in 1995.
They're getting awfully lazy over there.
