One Last Thing...

...before I go to bed. And I know it's petty, but it bugged me.

\Mul"lah\, n.
Definition: [n] a Muslim trained in the doctrine and law of Islam; the head of a mosque

Note the subtle yet existant difference between that word and this one:

\Moo"lah\, n.
Definition: [n] informal terms for money

This is one of the smaller examples of what Kerry was just talking about in reference to the president being insensitive to other places in the world. If our leader can't even make the effort to pronounce a single vowel sound correctly, how can he convince countries who speak in the language that includes that vowel sound to side with us in a difficult struggle?
