AMMAN, Jordan--Just like any cordial host, King Abdullah drove his guest, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) to the airport.

Abdullah drove a Mercedes 600 from his residence to the tarmac where Obama's "change we can believe in" charter was parked. The two chatted briefly, shook hands and His Royal Highness watched as Obama climbed the stairs to the Israel-bound aircraft.

TWO GREAT MEN!
A KING AND THE FUTURE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA!
JOHN MCCAIN PUT HIS FOOT IN HIS MOUTH AGAIN TODAY!

The king of a country gave him a ride to the airport? John McCain must be kicking himself for challenging Obama to leave the U.S. in the first place.
But all the same, this is sure not to go over well with Hanity's "blue-collar, hard working middle American" minions.

Yes!! Obama is this cool!!!

This is a comment about the Sun Times' general coverage of Barack Obama. Politics aside, dedicating this much space and attention to one candidate is irresponsible.
I challenge the editors of this newspaper to tell me they have given this presidential race balanced coverage. A giant banner proclaiming "Obama's world tour?" People are smarter than you think (read: they don't take this paper seriously anymore).

I, a citizen of the U.S.A, educated individual and reader of newspapers hereby label the editors of the Chicago SunTimes: propagandists. Shame on you.

The least we could do for Obama, he enjoyed the falafel too!
