I'm sitting in Singapore grading middle school essays, and I just listened to NPR's morning edition on KBIA's streaming audio station. It seems like Barak Obama is generating a lot of presidential election hype around himself. Aside from the fact that he is an ethnic minority who appears statemen like and has strong oratorical skills (maybe that's all it takes), I'm not sure why this two term senator is qualified to be the leader of the free world.
However, it seems like the guy is going to make a run for the president, and he's probably cleaner than other popular choices. Even though I may not agree with his fairly liberal politics, I'm vain enough that I would like to take a moment to coin his election slogan... here it is.
OBAMA CAN BEAT OSAMA
I'm the first to say it! Hooray!
I did quick searches on Technorati and Google, and I think I'm the first blogger to ever publish this on the web. Now, who will start a meme of doctored pictures with Barak's and Osama's heads pasted over stills of Mortal Kombat video game fatalities and action movie climax scenes?
If he does run for president, I want a cut of all of the snarky t-shirts sold at the Democratic National Convention. Oh wait... I think that I registered this blog under a Creative Commons license when I filed it under Feedburner. I guess I can't be so greedy.
