Today's What the Fuck Moment
From Uncorrolated - Obama - The Children's Book. An inspiring story of Dear Leader for your children available at Costco.
A snippet of the story: "Sometimes it was a lonely journey. WHAT AM I DOING HERE? He often wondered, with the cold Chicago wind in his face slowing him down, pushing him back. But he didn't give up.
For somehow his journey had led him to Trinity Church, surrounded by the people from his neighborhood including many he had helped. And there, swept up in the waves of their singing with tears on his cheeks he knew why he was there. He knew who he was, and where he belonged." I kid you not.
UPDATE: Wait - there's another!!
Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope
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.
And, you can purchase both at Amazon for $23.78.
This scares the hell out of me.
