“Obama Inspired Hope Only Goes So Far In Kenya”

It's getting even less mileage in the States, but that's another issue. From the LA Times:

“In Africa, money, ethnicity and family connections still count more toward success than does hard work. Bribes usually trump talent; corruption tops integrity. Young Africans hoping to follow in Obama's footsteps -- even those with the same name -- may face disappointment and disillusionment.”

Jeeze, it's like Africa is run by a combination of Caroline Kennedy and Rod Blagojevich!

Wait a minute.

Uh-Oh.
