Inside: "I see Barack Obama can trace his lineage back to William The Lion. Unlike George Bush who can trace his lineage back to Lenny The Lion."

Middle aged?? She's like something from the middle ages - her publicity photo has had more airbrushing than Donald Campbell's Bluebird K7 Hydroplane. Harridan doesn't begin to explain the look of the woman and her personality is less attractive!
