Even better than a President...

...we appear to have elected a superhero!

Barack a-ah
Savior of the Universe!
Barack a-ah
He'll save every one of us

(Seemingly there is no reason for these extraordinary intergalactical upsets)
(Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha)
(What's happening Barack?)
(Only General Colin Powell, formerly at State Department, has provided any explanation)

Barack a-ah
He's a miracle

(This morning's unprecedented solar eclipse is no cause for alarm)

Barack a-ah
King of the impossible

He's for every one of us
Spread wealth to every one of us
He save with a mighty hand
Every man, every woman
Every child, with a mighty

(Senator Clinton, Barack Obama approaching.)
(What do you mean Barack Obama approaching? Open fire! All weapons! Dispatch war rocket Ajax to bring back his body)

Barack a-ah
(Obama's alive!)

Barack a-ah
He'll save every one of us

Just a man
With a man's courage
You know he's
Nothing but a man
And he can never fail
No one but the pure at heart
May find the Golden Grail
...Oh..Oh........Oh..Oh ................

(Barack, Barack, I love you, but we only have four years to save the Earth!)

EDITED TO ADD: Wow, reading around the intertubes this morning, I'm actually starting to feel sorry for Barry (even more than I already felt sorry for whoever was going to wind up with a key to the Augean Stables and a garden trowel.) There is a large slice of his constituency that is going to feel betrayed if he doesn't walk to the inauguration across the Reflecting Pool in the Mall.

OH!, Tam no! That is so so wrong. I can't believe you did that.

So wrong...

I'm surprised he didn't walk across Lake Michigan into Grant Park last night, to be honest.

Conservatives need to just sit back and, for the most part, let Congress run wild and Obama do what he can. Moderates will be appalled and conservatives will be energized, while liberals are almost certain to be very disappointed that everything they've expected hasn't come true.

Yeah, I halfway go along with the "feel sorry", but he asked for the deal.

His legacy will be that of having presided over the worst financial debacle of modern times. The news coverage of the campaign masked the public perception of any antecedent causes for the meltdown.

Our problm is that neither he nor his advisors have the understanding and depth of knowledge to cope. Raines, his primary economic advisor, was a participant who contributed to the crash.

This all vindicates the Austrian school of economics; Keynes loses--but unfortunately, so do we.

Watched h(H?)is speech from Grant Park last night. Did it strike anyone that the facial expressions on all the white women were pure rapture? I only mention the white women because at least the other visible minorities had some other expressions on their faces.

Frankly, it was scary ... and I'm a long way away up here in the Great White North.
