Her pronunciation of “Bare-Rack Obama” reminds me though that one of the local newsfolks calls him “Brock O’Bama” which almost sounds like a Southside Irish name.
In other news, Kay Brooks uncovers the little-known fact that Barack Obama lives in Hyde Park. My grandma grew up in Hyde Park; I guess that makes me an Obama operative, too.
Edited to add:
I’m just laughing so hard still at Kay Brooks being all “I’ve discovered who Obama lives near,” that I just had to go see who else lives or has lived in Hyde Park so that we might also paint him with the brushes of their bad acts:
Muhammad Ali, Steve Allen, Blue Balliet, Saul Bellow, Gwendolyn Brooks, Clarence Darrow, Kurt Elling, Enrico Fermi, Milton Friedman, James Heckman, Sue Miller, Barack Obama, Sara Paretsky, Carl Sandburg, Harold Washington, and Mahalia Jackson
Ha, you know, I would pay good money to go to a cocktail party where these folks, Ayers, and Farrakhan were all present. You’re going to tell me that wouldn’t be a good time.
Oh, and my grandma, and her parents. I forgot them.
