Oh, Bawma

I didn't have a crush on Obama before, and I certainly don't now. He seems like a decent fellow, but shares the same ugly quality that so many people (I was going to say liberals, but I'm not sure that's entirely fair) do: a basic distaste for the average American, and maybe even for the average person. It's alarmingly fashionable to say "I hate people" while smiling or laughing, and actually mean it. It's a mark of cleverness, of sophistication. As someone once said, there are far too many good reasons to hate individuals to find reasons to lump them together in your disgust.
