Bash a goats brain in for Obama...

I know there are many people out there who have customs in their culture that by most of our way of thinking here in the US would seem pretty brutal, such is the case in Kenya where they are not only praying for Barack Obama to win but they are sacrificing goats. Not in the biblical manner of slitting it's throat...
Customarily, those seeking large blessings sacrifice a goat by swinging it by its legs so that its head and neck are bludgeoned against a large rock in a naturally occurring enclosure between two massive boulders that serves as the shrine's sanctuary. The goat's demise incurs the blessings of the rock shrine's god, said Caroline Odhiambo, a 24-year-old who tends to the shrine.

Let's hope this is not something that Obama ever decides he wants to do here as a way of honoring his father's heritage, I think PETA might not approve...

Apparently idiocy works...that's a tragedy disguised as means/end reasoning.
