Just in case you were wondering how unusual this election is, get this: Robbers tried to steal from an 86-year-old Kenyan woman in a rural village last night, and it became international news within hours.
Why? Because her step-grandson is Barack Obama. That's the weird thing: Said grandson is a U.S. Senator, author of two best-selling books, and a finalist for a high-profile job that pays $400,000 a year. And yet, his grandmother is living in a hut with no electricity or running water, and is vulnerable to roving thieves.
By the way, in case you were wondering: The thieves were trying to steal Mrs. Obama's solar panel.
She may only be able to communicate with her step-grandson through an interpreter, but she's certainly on board with his alternative energy platform!
