There were those government health officials who shut down the little girl's lemonade stand because she didn't have a business license. And then there was that firefighter promotion exam that everybody, including ALL the African Americans, agreed was in no way discriminatory or racist but was thrown out because no African Americans scored high enough on it to merit promotion. And the news blurb that President Obama helicoptered eight miles to deliver a speech on clean energy. And Harry Reid saying that he can't understand how anybody of Hispanic Heritage could be a Republican. Or Robert Gibbs saying that those who criticize President Obama and/or the administration should be drug tested. This thread is targeted at those quirks and foibles of those who govern and government in the news that don't really merit a whole thread, but do make a person go "Hmmmmm."
