HATE IT! Barack & the Hammers

With Barack Obama being voted in as the next President of the United States, the press has moved ahead full throttle with even *more* whacko stories about the President elect.

British press is reporting that Barack is a staunch supporter of West Ham United in the English Premiership. Apparently, once a few years back, he visited the footie academy while in London. As far as I can gather, no further sightings have been bagged, no papps have snapped pix of him sporting their kit. 

One visit a fan makes? I'm not convinced. If he *is* a Hammers fan, good luck to him. He'll need it! (and yeah, that is the Manchester United fan in me speaking!)

I am certainly excited about what an Obama presidency will bring to our beleaguered nation. He is very articulate to be sure, and seemingly has the intellect and composure to be successful in the highest office of the most powerful nation on earth. However, I am a little skeptical about his level of experience, alleged ties to unsavory organizations and religious affiliations. I voted for him, primarily because of bitterness at the incompetence of the Bush administration. I remain disenfranchised with America so far in the 21st Century, and came across a political graphic that does a fairly good job in capturing this sentiment.

I think it's been awhile since people have been excited about a US President. Obama certainly fits the bill. Too bad about his (supposed!) footie team choice. He should back Manchester United! One track mind...
