Am I mistaken or did we just elect Barack Obama as the next President of The United States?
I voted. I watched NBC till the wee hours of the morning, and I even drank my FREE Starbuck’s coffee. I once said you never got anything for FREE in New York…shame on me. Forgive me Empire State!
I recently stumbled upon an article about our President-Elect that I felt compelled to read. The article detailed Obama’s quest for a family pooch that is allergen free. You see even our next President wants something free. Hope he got his Starbucks. Anyway, Peru is offering a hairless pup to the Obamas. I’m offering a box of Claritan. I can sympathize with his allergic daughter.
This story was a must-read for me because my little girl came home days prior to the election telling me that if Obama wins, he’s going to purchase a puppy for his kids. Obama won my little girls vote this way. Preying on the tender hearts of our young is NOT fair politics.
Who can blame the next First Family for wanting a little foul-smelling, poop-eating, furniture chewing canine? That’s just what the White House needs. It was just what my green house needed.
I realize this week has passed and I’ve been left wading through dirty laundry, swimming in puppy pee, and shoveling popcorn, but I hadn’t been prepared for the fact that we (Americans) had taken over the world. If I’d known, I most certainly would have thrown a party. Heck, I’d have even baked a batch of red, white, and blue cupcakes. Conquering the world is cause for celebration!
But I didn’t know. At times ignorance is bliss…not this time.
In her article, Presidential Pooch Watch, Claudine Zap hailed Obama as the first “global-president”. You see, I was naive enough to think that he had only won the vote of the USA. I didn’t know Europe, Russia, and China were also claiming a right to him. Did they get to vote too? What I really want to know is DID THEY GET A FREE STARBUCK’S COFFEE?
I pray he’s prepared to handle our global economic crisis, human suffering on a world-wide scale, and this new international presidency. I do believe the world is looking to Mr. Obama as their financial savior. That’s a weighty responsibility. He should ask for a raise!
