Hirsi and Cosby

Ayan Hirsi Ali has just been exposed as a fraud. She made up stuff like the story a forced marraige, and an escape from Somalia to get asylum in the Netherlands. She later used these same stories to win a seat in the Dutch parliament. After her expose, she plans to come down to Washington and work for the American Enterprise Institute. In other news, the US pumps money to some Somali warlords to fight other worlords.

On the other side, Bill Cosby says what needs to be said. I havent followed him too closely, but my impression is that he's not been another one of those Republican Black conservatives. He's done a lot for his community, and is now brave enough to call a spade a spade. You rock, Bill! Today, great Black Power icons need to be intelligent, hard working young men and women who are politically aware and strong willed enough not to fall for any Condi-style sell-outs, and decent and sociable enough to be well liked and respected members of the larger community.
