Defenestrazioni

The Defenestration of Prague occurred in 1618 when two royal officials were summarily thrown out of some rather high windows and landed, as luck would have it and history recorded it, on a pile of manure.

The Defenestration of New York happened just the other day when Barack Obama tossed New York Gov. David Paterson out of a window, landing him not on a pile of manure but on the front page of the New York Times.

In its political consequences, this is a distinction without difference.


(M. Barone su IDB)

[...] the lesson is clear: when you become a problem for Obama, don't get too close to a window.
