It Took Obama 11 Hours to Say ‘Let There Be Light’

Frankly, in an emergency, I prefer my messiahs to act a little faster than this:

President-elect Barack Obama’s Hawaiian vacation was darkened for 11 hours Friday night and early Saturday when a power outage enveloped the island of Oahu.

To be fair, however, an Obama spokesman said it took so long for Obama to miracle the lights back on because the outage occurred during Barack’s nightly stroll across Maunalua Bay, and on the way back he stopped to turn some locals’ water into wine, heal a leper and bless the gravesite of Don Ho.
