Lifting whole passages from some else's speeches is NOT change you can believe in. It's change you can Xerox....--Sen. Hillary Clinton

In a college campus somewhere, two friends, a black dude and a white dude were shooting the breeze and having fun jiving with each other.  After a while, the white dude said, "Gotta take off, dude.  I'm gonna be late for class." "What?" said the black dude.  "Since when has that ever mattered to you?"

"I know," the white dude answered.  "I'm putting my slack cred at risk.  But this class is actually inspiring!"

"What is it?" asked the black dude.

"English 129," said the white dude.  "‘The Poetry of Barack Obama.'"

"What?" said the black dude.  "That's the hottest course on campus.  How did you get in?"

"On HOPE, I guess," the white dude said.

"That WORKS?" said the black dude....

Y'all got it?  Get the drift?  Yes, I plagiarized it from the political cartoon, "Doonesbury," by Garry Trudeau.  Hey, if Barack Obama can blatantly plagiarize his soaring, inspiring speeches that the OBAMBIS can swoon on, I, too, can plagiarize my Kapeng Barako column that y'all can moon on.

OBAMA, THE ORATOR.  SO WAS HITLER: Whether you believe in his politics or not, everyone, almost everyone, agrees that Sen. Barack Obama is the best orator among the current crop of presidential candidates.

As Jack Shafer, the editor of the online magazine, Slate, wrote: "Barack Obama bringeth rapture to his audience.  They swoon and wooble, regardless of race, gender, or political affiliation, although few understand EXACTLY why he has this effect on them."

Such is the power of Mr. Obama.  Such also was the power of Adolph Hitler.  During those times when Hitler mesmerized the Aryan Nation, he also "bringeth rapture to the Germans" ... and "they swoon and wooble" ... "not knowing EXACTLY why he had this effect on them."

On a couple of occasions, I took the time to listen closely to Barrack Obama.  He got me mesmerized.  He's truly a talented orator.  But then, after I've listened to him, I asked myself: Now, what did he say?  Can he really accomplish that?  Can he really do all that? 

True, he told me what I wanted to hear, but I didn't hear him tell me HOW he's going to do it.  There were no SPECIFICS.  True, his words were poetry and he speaks in rhythm and perfect cadences, but he ain't got no beef.  He ain't got no specifics in his promises.  His speeches ring hollow.  As Sen. John McCain aptly said: "Empty, eloquent rhetoric." 

Ms. Hillary Clinton may not have poetry in her speeches, but she offers us down to earth solutions to America's problems, and I'd rather believe in that than those dream-like words that Mr. Obama utters.

A PHOTO IS WORTH THAN A THOUSAND WORDS: So, did y'all see that photo of Barack HUSSEIN Obama in that Taliban garb?  It was so funny, I think.  But, of course, all the OBAMBIS went ballistics over it.  They shrilled that it was "fear-mongering."

What's so fearful about that?  There's nothing to fear but fear itself.  (I copied that sentence, too, by the way.  Call me a wannabe Barack).  Really, I do think that garb suits Barack to a tee: the turban and the wrap around skirt and all. 

It wasn't fearful.  It was funny. 

But guess what?  Barack looks like he's been wearing the garb all his life.  Do y'all think he could be a "closeted" Taliban?  You know, like those "closeted" gay hypocrite lawmakers, like Foley and Cunningham and all. 

Just asking.

Because, you'll never know.  With a middle name, like HUSSEIN ... you'll never know.  Ask Mr. Bush.  He knows.  He used to have a STRANGE fixation on a man named, Saddam HUSSEIN.  But, you know, there' also something STRANGE about Barack.

When a presidential candidate refuses to place his hand over his heart when the national anthem is sung and reasons that "47,000 fans at NFL games do not place their hands over their hearts ..."  That to me, is STRANGE. 

When a presidential candidate refuses to wear the pin of the United States flag on the lapel of his jacket and says, "that's not patriotic ..."  That to me, is STRANGE. 

When a presidential candidate's wife says, "For the first time in my life, I am finally proud to be an American ..."  That to me, is STRANGE. 

When a presidential candidate plagiarizes his speeches and says, "Hey, that's no big deal...."  That to me, is STRANGE. 

When a presidential candidate presents himself as squeaky clean, yet have a close association with a man, named REZKO ... that to me, is STRANGE. 

Let Barack Obama get the Democratic presidential nomination and we'll have John McCain as America's next president.  And that to me, won't be STRANGE at all.  JJ
