Barack Obama tells the British band “you still rock!” as he awards them medals honouring their contribution to US culture. Dressed in black suits and bow ties, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page were among a group of artists who received Kennedy Centre Honours at a dinner event at the White House. Frontman Plant said he was flattered and overwhelmed by the award, adding that he was glad to see Jones and Page using “good table manners”.

Really?! Latest attack on Rice. She wants Americans to learn black history. Conservatives are digging deep to cook up new creative excuses to disqualify U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice–so deep they are pulling at straws with a book the diplomat wrote in 1986 on black history education, drawing to the somewhat obvious conclusion that Rice is in fact an African-American woman who believes it’s important for other Americans to understand black history.
Guantanamo was one of the biggies of the first term, but the right wing fought it at every step. Let’s hope this gets done.
The short of it is: If Susan Rice can be suitably tarnished, then Sen. Kerry may be tagged for Sect of State, freeing up a seat that could then possibly be won for Scott Brown.
