Let it be known that I joked about both of these items in the very recent past, and now here they are for real:
Is he the President of the United States or a movie star??? Is he a politician or a celebrity??? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think we ever saw President Bush on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. It's becoming increasingly obvious to me that Obama was running for Student Body President, not President of the United States. This is only one of the many undignified things I have witnessed the Commander-in-Chief exhibiting since his inauguration. This was a popularity contest, and he won it. Now, let's see if he puts soda in all the drinking fountains. Or if he just makes it legal to kill babies instead.
You know, it doesn't really bug me that Obama is being glorified and deified by the media and press, when if President Bush had done any of the same exact things as Obama had done, he would be ridiculed and scorned (can you imagine how they would have attacked Bush if he had stumbled on his inaugural protocol?). It doesn't really bug me that I keep hearing about how black people still complain about discrimination, and how Michelle Obama is a bad example for wearing clothes designed by whites or Asians (seriously, this is news?!?). It doesn't really bug me that he can get away with anything and everything and people will make excuses for him to no end.
Oh wait... All those things really do bug me.
