Other Than That, Mrs. Lincoln . . .

The award for most stunningly understated paragraph of the day goes to Nicholas Kristof for this gem from today’s column about Kenyan tribal chaos:

Until he was circumcised with a machete in front of a jeering mob and then dragged off to be beheaded, Robert Ochieng had been a symbol of modern, post-tribal harmony in Kenya.

Bonus cheap political angle: if HRC wanted to hit BHO — and we know she does — she might want to cast Obama’s use of the bully pulpit to bring Kenyan leaders together as naive and ill conceived.
