I wanted to post up some of these articles last week, but I was indisposed.
Item: Bill O’Riley gives the Pressie his props.
As you know, I’m not an Obama Basher. Even though we might disagree on an occasional topic, I have nothing against him. In fact, I hope he finds a way to meet with the public halfway and become a successful president. I won’t join in on the Anti-Obama rhetoric—All Birthers, GTFO and take your FAIL with you—which is too prevalent in some parts of the recent protests. You might even see Obama in BAM 01 wishing Eric well on his journey, you don’t know.
I’m not the only person who believe that way, none better than Bill O’Riley, Mr. Fox News himself, has given a pro-Obama piece in a recent issue of Parade. You might have read it in the Sunday papers.
Here’s the article: http://www.parade.com/news/2009/08/09-what-obama-can-teach-americas-kids.html
Granted, he’s gotten quite a bit of flack over those who see things way to politically, but Officer O’Riley’s very sincere about the piece. Only one person in America can be the president at that time, and getting the office is no easy task. And that’s when you actually want to be President; about 99.9999% of Americans will just go “FUCK YOU, ASSHOLE!” if they were given the chance to do it. Barack Obama had to overcome a lot of hurdles on his way to the oval office, and for actually getting to his goal, Bill, and most of the American Public, would admire him for doing so.
Item: Werid things happen when you’re bored after school
I won’t make any comments about this. I’ll just tap my forehead and give you the link: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2009/08/obama-joker-artist.html
Bored during his winter school break, Firas Alkhateeb, a senior history major at the University of Illinois, crafted the picture of Obama with the recognizable clown makeup using Adobe’s Photoshop software.
The things we do for Lulz, people.
