Unlike D, my politically savvy friend, I'm not usually interested in politics. The only exceptions are during the unfortunate post-election goings-on in Kenya earlier this year and, of course, Barack's stunning rise to the [alleged] topmost spot in the world.
[I'm sorry - I meant President-elect Barack Obama. Let me not act like I'm on a first name basis with the man.] I've watched more news this year than I've had my entire lifetime prior to these events.
To use the Hip-Hop generation's lingo to describe President-elect Obama's ascent, phrases not unlike From rags to riches, Barack Obama went:
- From ashy to classy
- From a disgrace to amazing grace
- From the outhouse to the White House
Jokes aside though, he's an exceptional human being. I sincerely hope he does a great job. So, while you're here, check out Obama behind the scenes on election night. And dude has a great sense of humor, [you have to have been following the campaign on a fairly regular basis to get the bulk of the jokes tho] and is a true baller.
Now that's presidential material.
