Hagiography going to farce

by Smitty (h/t The Moderate Voice)

Here at ToM, we do the hard task of watching clips like this that you may or may not want to try at home:The video is funny and well done.
The main criticism I have is its fundamental anti-American spirit. If men and women have fought and died for any concept in the Constitution, it is expressed in Article 1, Section 9 "No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States...". Not only are we not keen on anointing anyone king or queen, but the very notion that 300,000,000+ million citizens and 50 states depend on one man, however talented, to hold it all together is something that should induce vomiting.
So enjoy the clip as such, and make a point of denouncing the underlying spinelessness of it all. And attending a Tea Party on 04 July. And hitting the tip jar.


  1. I had a hard time with the narrative (heh) of the video.

    Was it satire that couldn't commit itself too much to the subject? Or a superfan video that tried to be funny? (Was that really BHO signing papers then standing up and revealing his tights?)

  2. The "he he! ha ha!" part makes me think it is totally about making fun of Obama... so I fully endorse it! x_x
