I just heard about a children's book starring America's newest (and best) superhero. It's apparently not Bobio's third autobiography, but it must certainly be based on a true story…
How about some quotes…?
"Even God himself talks to Barry while he's in church on Sunday, telling him: "Look around you. Now look to me. There is hope enough here to last a lifetime."
Inspired yet? If your answer is no, then you're not a kid anymore.
But maybe you're still young at heart, so how about this one:
"Barack smiled, tears rolling down his cheeks. Suddenly he knew for certain hope would last long enough for him to make a difference."
Well, not if I can help it!
Jim Jones is alive and well and living as a semi-black meterosexual in Fantasyland.
"Even as a boy, Barack knew he wasn't quite like anybody else…"
Bobo didn't write the book, but doesn't it perfectly mimic his style – creepy? Although I admit I may not be in the right state of mind (and grace) to receive thes message and understand it, so I'm hoping someone from Mensa is reading this and will deign to explain it all?!?
Ever since Barack Obama was young, Hope has lived inside him. From the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of Chicago, from the jungles of Indonesia to the plains of Kenya, he has held on to Hope. Even as a boy, Barack knew he wasn't quite like anybody else, but through his journeys he found the ability to listen to Hope and become what he was meant to be: a bridge to bring people together.
This is the moving story of an exceptional man, as told by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by Bryan Collier, both winners of the Coretta Scott King Award. Barack Obama has motivated Americans to believe with him, to believe that every one of us has the power to change ourselves and change our world.
It's called "Son of Promise, Child of Hope"
Son of bitch.
