Dear 8lb 6oz newborn infant Obama...

"I like to think of Obama with giant eagle's wings and singing lead vocals for Lynard Skynard with like an angle band and I'm in the front row and I'm hammered drunk..."

Have you noticed that over the election period, and even more so as we get to inaguration, everyone is making Obama out to some sort of super hero or super villian for their cause? Environmentalists thought that he was Captian Planet, minorities see him as a great exclamation point, Democrats as JFK, cigarette companies as the great new Marlboro Man, techogeeks as a Crackberry addict, and today I heard book readers believe he is the 'Greatest Reader' and he t-o-t-a-l-l-y gets them because he reads a lot and wrote two best selling books (nevermind that Bush reads a lot, must be some of those cool maze books). I am not making this stuff up. It seems that Obama is just like the Jesus that Ricky Bobby prays to.

Likewise, I have heard from conservatives that Obama is the next Stalin or Lenin. They think that the Greatest Reader is going to rip chapters out of the Marxist hand book. Rush, between oxy-cotton induced hallucinations, thinks socialism is going to break out at any minute.

Well before we begin idolizing and sacrificing the man, I am suggesting we all do what college kid's tend to learn their senior year, moderation. He is just a man, a man at an important seat, but just a man. He is going to make mistakes, but he will, just like we all do, make the best decision possible with the information he has. So stop all the lovey dovey BS and the hatemongering and give the man a chance.

(Oh and am I the only one noticing that he is the 'change' guy, well he seems to have a lot of Clinton's old pals in his cabinet. Just a thought. Oh and I guess a vote for him was just like a vote for Hillary then.)

All my republican friends definately noticed this same Obama thinking and have proptly began calling him Jesus 2 or "The Dos". Which I think is really funny. I really do wish him luck over the next four years, we all are going to need it.
