Obama-Llama Shenanigans

OK, I’ve been trying to stay away from political commentary, but I really need to get this off my chest: Barack, I hate to say it buddy, but I’m completely sick of the media coverage on you already. I mean, there is such a thing as overkill, but we are way, way, way beyond that point. Not only is the horse dead and beaten, but the media flew over top of said horse and dropped a daisy-cutter on it.

Can you believe they bought it?

"Can you believe they bought it?"

Admittedly, I’m not a fan of our President-elect — not because I think he’s a bad guy, but more because the last guy who we put in power with no real experience lasted for 8 years. Eight long, painful, baffling years. And his opponent wasn’t exactly on the top of my list either. In fact, I think this election proves that the “alleged” Shadow Government not only exists, but they are bored and poking the public and seeing exactly what they can get away with. Seriously, if the “X-Files” really existed, all Mulder would have to do to prove his point to Scully would be to just point at our choices and say, “Riddle me this: If there is no shadow government, how did ANY of these clowns make it this far?”

But the election was what it was, and we have our President-elect.

Now, Obama-mania is runnin’ wild, brother!

Every 3 minutes on Yahoo! News, it’s another story about Obama. About the family’s choice of dog because of allergies. About “Hannah Montana” wanting to have the Obama daughters on the show. I mean, really? Seriously? Do I have to hear this stuff? What’s next — Obama will take a month out of setting up his cabinet to star in “High School Musical 4”?

I understand his popularity. I understand his election is historic and unprecedented in U.S. history. I get it. I watch and read because of it. I’m curious. And it’s hysterical watching the world stumble around him, mainly because he is black. Seriously — the only thing better than having a leader with public speaking skills again is having one that unhinges other world leaders because of his ethnicity. The next 4 years are going to be entertaining, to say the least.

But even with this in mind, I don’t need a news flash because he scratched his ass after a long day of work. I don’t need to know what kind of drapes Michelle wants in the White House. I don’t care about his dog choice, and what the experts are saying about it, or what his kids are doing. The day-to-day affairs of the Obama family aren’t my concern — that’s their personal life — and as a general rule, I stay out of other folks’ personal lives.

So let’s step back a little, media gurus. Let the man breathe. Let the public’s urge to know more be drawn out a little longer. After all, we will have 4 years to get to know the man — for better or worse.
