Bobo – One Sick Mofo?

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…"

Sane?

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?!?

Product Description
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.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    I can't believe this is a real election. Rod Serling couldn't have written a better script.

    Yes, I can just hear him now:

    “You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension; a dimension
    of sound; a dimension of sight; a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and
    no substance, of “hope” and “change”.
    You’ve just crossed over into the Obama Zone…”
