A Cup o' Kapeng Barako 

Is that who-you-ma-call, Barack HUSSEIN Obama?

You know, that good senator from Illinois.

He wants to be the next President of the United States of America? Susmaryusep! Sa pangalan na lang, talo na ‘to, eh.

True, he was a Harvard-trained lawyer and a Harvard law professor. And that he was a prominent civil-rights lawyer and activist. And a very active legislator in the State of Illinois and a highly visible senator in the US Senate.

True, he gleams on national television and he’s a darling of the press, and wherever he went, people flock to see him and listen to him speak. He’s got the stature of a rock star, and he’s a great orator, eloquent and charismatic.

True, he’s handsome, intelligent and he says the right kind of things … things that the American people love to hear.

Me, included.

When questioned about his THIN FEDERAL RESUME as a public servant, he said: "I think the one thing the American people require of their president is good judgment. In most of our lives, we hope that more experience gives better judgment -- but not always. Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld had an awful lot of experience, but displayed poor judgment in this Iraq war … so part of the measure I have to take is, do I feel I have the judgment to take the toughest job on Earth."

Sharp, beautiful, gorgeous words.

These, too, are ENDEARING words: "The true desire of all mankind," Obama said, "is not only to live free lives but lives marked by dignity and opportunity, by security and simple justice."

I also like his stance on the Iraq War: "Let’s get the troops out! No ‘ifs’ or ‘buts.’ Let the Iraqis solve their own problems. The SURGE of U.S. troops there is an escalation of the war that will surely result in more deaths, more violence and more hate for America. The solution to the quagmire in Iraq should be a political solution, NOT a military solution. Bring Iran and Syria and the whole region to the TALKING table and let’s all formulate a solution."

I like that kind of solution to problems: Let’s talk. Let me hear you. And hear me out, too. Let’s work it out. Let’s compromise.

Let’s change our vocabulary and talk about America seeking JUSTICE, which is a fundamental Muslim concept, rather than DEMOCRACY, which is interpreted as a code word for America’s support for dictatorial governments that run RIGGED ELECTIONS.

Yes, let’s talk. Guns and bombs are the tongues of goons and morons.

Let’s use words. Soothing words. Humble words. NOT stupid and arrogant words, like: "Bring it on!"

But may I ask, can Barack bring America together? And will America bring on Barack? Or to put it bluntly: Is America ready for an African-American to become its President?

I doubt it! Not yet … or, maybe, even, NEVER!

Let’s face it. Let’s get real. This is the United States of America, where WHITE MEN rule. Will they really relinquish that power to rule?

This is a nation YET where XENOPHOBIA is the common mental disorder of many!

As Leonard Pitts Jr., a Pulitzer Prize winner columnist recently wrote: "Barack Obama is a black man with a Muslim name who would be seeking the presidency in a historically RACIST nation currently at war against Muslim extremists."

Amen to that.

"One wonders if there is enough handsomeness, intelligence and charisma in the world to overcome all that," Pitts added.


It ain’t the time yet for a man named, Barack HUSSEIN Obama, to become President of the United States of America.

And for that matter, not even for that man named, John McCain, who I think will win the Republican nomination, who then will go against Hillary, who, I am sure, will win the Democratic nomination. Senator McCain is Mr. Bush’s clone. A loser, for sure.

Even Rudy Guliani, the former mayor of the city of New York and the leading GOP contender in recent polls will surely lose, too. Because though NOT exactly a Bush’s CLONE, he’s a Bush’s LAPDOG.

Clones and lapdogs … are same-same.

So, it’s gonna be Hillary Rodhan Clinton, aka "Billary." Hey, two for one! Two bright minds of the land, tilling together. She said, "I am in. And I am in to win." She will.

"I was born into a middle-class family in the middle of the country in the middle of the last century," she cooed recently in her flat Midwestern twang to several hundreds of people – mostly mothers and their daughters -- in IOWA … and they loved her.

In every American’s home, it’s always been the woman who rules. We men, just pretend. If Nancy Pelosi now has the gavel to put ORDER in the once unruly HOUSE full of naughty boys, Hillary will soon hold the HELM to steer America back to Bill’s economic boom years and happy, peaceful times, without wars.

Osama, I mean, Obama, Barack HUSSEIN Obama, that is, has got a long, long wait yet. # # #
