    Obama apologizes to Nancy Reagan for 'careless' joke
    President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan this afternoon to apologize for a joke about her having held "séances" in the White House, an Obama aide said. “President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan today to apologize for the careless and off handed remark he made during today’s press conference," said transition spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter.

    Sign of things to come...

    He had to apologize because what he meant to say was that he didn't want to consult an astrologist before making any major decisions.

    Confusing astrology and seances is beyond the pale...

    So in other words, he really did want to slam Nancy Reagan, but just did so inaccurately?

    Right?

    And some folks think this Obama fellow is SMART?

    Sure, whatever they say.

    I'm not sure I follow. Do you have examples? I honestly thought that the times McCain used humor were his best moments on the campaign trail.

    Chris I don't think the conservatives who complain about "liberals" are talking about you or nicephoras or any of the reasonable democrats. When you complain about the right I am sure you are thinking about InTheNet, Newsmax and Rush Limbaugh the same way I think of Noam Chomsky, DailyKos and Superdave when I complain about the left.

    So while you thought Mccain's humor was fine it got people here on bigsoccer, people on democratic underground and Air America upset.

    But I agree....this is a nonstory and the conservatives need to stop feigning being offended.

    Good point. Humor can often go hand in hand with poor judgment. I think when you move beyond our shores in your humor, you get in a dangerous area. My guess is that McCain would like to have that one back.
