Great Article On Barack Obama, a.k.a. "The Child"

(Funny stuff. This is one of the best pieces of satire I've seen in a long time.)
-------------------

From The Times of London
July 25, 2008

And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid barren, that a Child appeared in the wilderness.

The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, grandson of a typical white person and an African peasant. And yea, as he grew, the Child walked in the path of righteousness, with only the occasional detour into the odd weed and a little blow.

When he was twelve years old, they found him in the temple in the City of Chicago, arguing the finer points of community organisation with the Prophet Jeremiah and the Elders. And the Elders were astonished at what they heard and said among themselves: “Verily, who is this Child that he opens our hearts and minds to the audacity of hope?”

In the great Battles of Caucus and Primary he smote the conniving Hillary, wife of the deposed King Bill the Priapic and their barbarian hordes of Working Class Whites.

And so it was, in the fullness of time, before the harvest month of the appointed year, the Child ventured forth - for the first time - to bring the light unto all the world....

Re: Great Article On Barack Obama, a.k.a. "The Chi

I read that this morning. It was good but they got one factual point wrong. Barak's grandparents were not white and black it was his mother that was white and his father that was black.

I know his grandparents on his moms side were both white and I assume that his grandparents on his father's side were both black since he was from Nigeria or some other African country before he came to Hawaii for an education and a blonde.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

CC1, the quote actually is accurate if misleading.

I believe the writer was refering to Barak's "race speech" where he called his grandmother a "typical white person" then listed her racists sins....

the quote:
Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, grandson of a typical white person and an African peasant.

Oh, I see. So he was attributing his maternal grandmother to the "typical white person" part of the sentance and his paternal grandparent(s) as the African peasant?

He came to Hawaii "for an education and a blonde", huh?
Interesting phrasesology.

But anyway...
The man came to the US for an education, and while in school he met Obama's mother. But he didnt come here "for an education and a blonde", as you put it. (His mother happened to be brunette, by they way. )
