Weekend reads and laughs

Krauthammer's article in Washington Post on Obama: For the first few months of the campaign, the question about Obama was: Who is he? The question now is: Who does he think he is?

Are the media airbrushing Obama’s speeches? Must watch the videos .

The American Thinker blogs: "Obama's narcissism swells to global proportions even as the American voters are beginning to notice something very fishy about this rookie from Illinois. Barack's triumphal European victory lap, four months before the American election, doesn't pass the smell test either, and the premature Hosannas by the liberal newsies confirms what our noses are telling us."

How to make fun of Obama: "Since the New Yorker dropped a bum joke on its cover this week, comedians have appeared on every news outlet to whine about how hard it is to make fun of Barack Obama. Really? They have an arsenal of jokes to use against a 71-year-old ex-POW cancer survivor and Obama is too touchy a subject?" 

His platitudes need deconstruction. "We are the people we've been waiting for"? Actually, I'm pretty sure we're the people who put all our money in Yahoo and then bought a house to flip and now are hocking everything we have. We're the people China has been waiting for.
