U.S. Stamp Celebrates China's 'Year of Rat'

"The U.S. Postal Service revealed its upcoming stamps for 2008.

According to the Service's press release, "the 2008 stamp program recognizes a range of subjects as diverse as America itself, from the Chinese Lunar New Year celebrated in Chinatowns all over the country, to 20th century movie icons and literary figures, to the flags of our states and territories."

Joining the likes of Bette Davis, Frank Sinatra, journalist Eric Severeid, and numerous other notable Americans, the Post Office will kick off its new stamp series this January by celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year with the issuance of the Celebrating Lunar New Year: Year of the Rat stamp."

This bodes ill for the upcoming political considerations.

Who but Hillary RodHam would find the Year of the Rat to be a most favorable portent?

And doesn't it figure that the POST OFFICE would deign to celebrate communism in all its splendorous vainglory.
