 Standing tall

Steven Erlanger of the New York Times, scrabbling for an On The Other Hand graf on Obama's triumphal European tour (my italics):

Obama was vague on crucial issues of trade, defense and foreign policy that currently divide Washington from Europe and are likely to continue to do so even if Obama becomes president. The issues include Russia, Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan, as well as new refueling tankers and chlorinated chickens, the focus of an 11-year European ban on U.S. poultry imports.
So American electors have to choose between two candidates: one doesn't know the difference between Shia and Sunni Muslims, but it doesn't matter because he plans to pick fights with both. The other doesn't stand tall in defence of chlorinated chickens.

Nailbiting stuff.
