Hands off my Obama!

While on holiday visiting nuclear weapons facilities, Senators Barack Obama and Richard Lugar were prevented from leaving Russia over the weekend in an odd a diplomatic fiasco. Russian officials were demanding to search their plane before it departed, which is apparently a no-no among "friendly" nations. The Senators were detained in an airport lounge while the matter was settled. Obama was reported to be kickin' it on a couch, and let others work it out. The Russian Foreign Ministry has since apologized.

When these things happen, Obama should really get in the habit of blogging about it.
