Google AJAX Library CDN slow?

I'm having trouble with a lot of sites loading AJAX libraries from Google's CDN. The one at*. Is anyone else having this issue? A lot of sites won't finish loading until they can fetch their jQuery/prototype/whatever from there, and since it's slow, all the other sites are slow too. I have temporarily remedied this by grabbing the more important libraries and putting them on a server in the same directory structure as Google's then using my hosts file to point to that server instead of Google's, but it's a rather annoying hack.

It should cache it globally after the 1st time on any site though. That's the main idea. Not slow from here. Try to ping the CDN and see where it takes you to.
