The BBC news web site had an article about the “winners and losers” of the 2004 US election and Bush’s victory. One alleged winner is Barack Obama, described thusly:
The son of a white woman from Kansas and a former goat herd from Kenya, he wowed Democrats when he addressed the party’s convention in Boston in July with a passionate speech. He is talked of as future presidential material.
I would have expected better from the BBC! Barack, the son of a goat herd?
