Success has a million fathers

One day after the Presidential Elections 2008, American civil rights activist, former U.S. congressman and mayor of Atlanta Andrew Young was on Comedy Central's Colbert Report. He made a mild joke about Obama not being black, but rather Afro-Asian-European-Latin in origin. Considering how diverse the Obama supporter are, and how they felt close to the President-Elect as if he were one of them, the joke was tasteful and meaningful.

But I bet he was not expecting who else will be claiming Obama as their own on Haaretz Online yesterday.

I had to laugh when I looked at the following articles next to each other.
