Idiot wind

What a classy response from Prof. Rashid Khalidi:

We did ask Mr. Khalidi whether he wanted to respond to the [McCain] campaign charges against him. He answered, via e-mail, that "I will stick to my policy of letting this idiot wind blow over."

I was unaware of the roots of the phrase 'idiot wind', until I found out, with some help from the internets, that it's a Bob Dylan song.

In other news, Francis 'The-End-of-History' Fukuyama is voting for Obama. On the other hand, Stephen Colbert has endorsed Obama (video), but he's not voting for him!

Update: WSJ's desi partner -- Mint -- joins other overseas business media such as The Economist and the Financial Times in endorsing Obama.

But why would Mint get into this endorsement game? Raju Narisetti, its editor, gives us his reasons.
