BREAKING: Chicago Is No Longer Part Of America
John Sununu, Obama needs to be more American, blah blah blah. Old news by now. But THIS:
[Obama] has no idea how the American system functions. And we shouldn’t be surprised about that, because he spent his early years in Hawaii smoking something, spent the next set of years in Indonesia, another set of years in Indonesia, and, frankly, when he came to the U.S., he worked as a community organizer, which is a socialized structure, and then got into politics in Chicago. [EA]
Republicans have been dying to relocate Chicago out of the United States and into some far off Socialivikistan since May of 2008. Sununu just placed it somewhere slightly west of Indonesia, close enough for their purposes. And so everything Obama touches turns to “Other,” including a city so American that Saul Bellow planted his citizenship flag in it.
Short and bittersweet. Great post.
