Linguistic phenomenobamanon

A little fun via Slate:

More silliness: Barack Obama Is Your New Bicycle, which is sort of the antithesis of Chuck Norris Facts . . . hmm . . . given that Chuck Norris has endorsed Mike Huckabee, is Barack Obama Is Your New Bicycle an implicit diss of the man about whom it is said, "Most people know that Descarte [sic] said, 'I think, therefore I am.' What most people don't know is that that quote continues, '...afraid of Chuck Norris.'"? An in-your-face dollop of niceness aimed at the man under whose beard is another fist?

So very much to think about this election season.

I just read that Sir Charles Barkley has endorsed Obama while at the same time unleashing an attack on conservative Republicans, calling them "fake Christians". He was previously a Republican, and he continues to have huge influence with African Americans, especially the young group.
