It’s funny that I happened to write a little bit about George Obama in today’s column, and shortly after finishing that I learned about the following:
Barack Obama has a half-brother in Kenya named George, who is either a black Billy Carter, or a Kenyan Roger Clinton. George has been homeless and had brushes with the law (most recently for pot possession), but now he’s going to get a reported six-figures for a book deal with Simon & Schuster:
Little is known about George Obama. The book, tentatively titled “Homeland” and to be written with author-journalist Damien Lewis, will tell of George Obama’s fall into crime and poverty as a teenager and his eventual embrace of community organizingÃ¢â‚¬â€a passion shared by the presidentÃ¢â‚¬â€and of advocacy for the poor, an identification so strong that he chooses to live among them.
“Chooses to live among them” and a “community organizer”? This guy has a future in American politics. Let’s see how long he “chooses to live among them” and organizes the homeless Kenyan community after he cashes Simon & Schuster’s check. The media will stop at nothing to help protect the Obama brand (GatewayPundit has more on that here).
Quite possibly one of the most shameless moments in politics — not counting Ted Kennedy speaking out against waterboarding and naming his dog “Splash” — was when Barack Obama, shortly after the world learned of his poverty-stricken brother in Kenya, actually said “I am my brother’s keeper” in a speech. This is the same politician who wants to be your health care keeper. Feel confident?
Here’s a proposed cover design and revised title for George’s book:
Other titles I’d suggest would be “Zig Zags From My Father” — “Brother Can You Spare Some Hope?” and “Loose Change I Can Believe In.”
