At first most people liked Obama.
Then his supporters started to remind people of teenage girls infatuated with their first boyfriend, arguing with their parents about dating the new
kid in town...
"Daddy, what do you mean you don't like Barry? It's because he's black, isn't it!! (tears welling up now) Well that's not fair!!! It's
just not fair!!"
"Hey sweetie... this is Barry.... (at drugstore perusing the condom aisle)... are we still on for tonight?"
"Barry.... I'm so upset... my Daddy doesn't like you.... I... I.... Think it's because you're black.."
"Of course it's because I'm black... what else could it be?? I'm a great guy... you know that... um.... wait a sec... (checking his pockets for a
joint) I mean this is just the way it is with people like your dad.... it's really not his fault... he's just bitter about having to get up and go
to work everyday to make his mortgage payments.... he clings to his religion.... he automatically doesn't like people who aren't like him...."
"Oh Barry.... you're soooo smart..... you must have got straight A's in school, didn't you???"
"Well sweetie... you can't go to Harvard without getting smart and knowing how the world works..."
"But what about my old boyfriend, Frank... he's says he's going to beat you up if come over..."
"That's ok, sweetie... I'll just sit down with him and discuss the issues.. I'll explain to him that he's just harboring resentment over a black
man moving in on what he thinks is rightfully his... what he thinks he's entitled to..."
"Oh Barry.... you're such a good talker..... you make my leg tingle when I hear you talk..."
"That is the change you've been waiting for, Sweetie...."
"But what about my father... and mother... they're still not very happy about you.... you know how angry, middle-class white people can be...."
"It's ok Sweetie.... they're the ones who kept you from being happy all along... things are different now, you'll see.... you are finally coming
into your own... becoming your own woman.... you have hope for the future now... now's the time to change everything.... This is the change you've
been waiting for! (paying for condoms)
"Oh Barry..... you're so special... (sigh) are you sure we can do this?"
"Sí, se puede, baby... So are we on for tonight?"
"I trust you... Pick me up at 8... I'll be waiting.... "
The only question now is how will Obama supporters feel about themselves in the morning.
