One Cheer for Obama

Several girls were performing a chant at the last Friday morning assembly at our elementary.  It went like this:

Obama is our President for one more year,

So lets all give him a big cheer!

At which point the school erupted in cheers, parents especially.

The return of the Obama cult makes some sense because think of what’s about to follow.  We luuurve Bernie around here, and the fact that he’s unlikely to become the next president makes him more attractive: he’s the beautiful loser.  Everyone knows that Hillary is a criminal plutocrat, but most Democtars will turn up and vote for her anyway because she’s a liberal.  And Obama, at least he didn’t talk about his, you know, on prime time TV.

Anyhow, I switched from Thursday night’s Republican debate to American Idol — what a breath of fresh air!  Two of the contestants were actually good, there was no botched plastic surgeries on display and even with all the tattoos and piercings and crazy hair, it felt wholesome.  Had any of the contestants dared to bring up their anatomy, they’d be fired in a very non-melodramatic, non-Trumpian manner.

Strange world: aspiring pop stars can be counted on to uphold social mores whereas the Republican presidential front-runner  acts like a crazy uncle.   Except that the crazy uncle’s excuse is that he’s inebriated, but the Donald is a teetotaler. Which is scary.

  1. I used to be optimistic that a second civil war could be avoided in America. Now I’m not so sure.
