    A lot of this stuff, or stuff similar from the same sources, was already in "The Bridge."

    We had a big long pissing match on here because CarltonBanks kept insisting that no one from Harvard had ever been quoted or interviewed about Obama's time there. He was hinting that Obama did not attend Harvard or Columbia.

    Actually, I think he was merely concerned for the President, who he thought should clear this matter up. For the President's own sake.

    Since I live in Hawaii, it's always funny when someone tells me, "No one in high school remembers him." I can always say, "I can talk to his classmates." Doesn't change anything, but it's fun to point out anyway.

    Isn't his high school enormous?

    Plus, I think he's been pretty open about the fact that he wasn't the greatest high school student. He's a bit of a late bloomer, and not afraid to admit it. He had to transfer into an Ivy League school, etc., etc.

    I don't think he even used cocaine. I think he huffed paint, and then there was a point in time where it served him well to puff up the story that he used cocaine, or at least he didn't correct others' impressions that he may have used cocaine. And then when he started campaigning it just became easier to stick with the cocaine story than to backtrack and correct the record that he did indeed huff paint.

    That's the likely scenario, at least.

    It is common sense.

    I find it enormously fascinating that we're supposed to accept some strange anecdotes while the actual transcripts are hidden from view as though they were part of the Manhattan Project.

    I wonder why that is.
