The further adventures of...

President "You can't get there from here" Obama...
-- NEW YORK -- A global sell-off set in motion by losses on Wall Street came back home on Friday morning, sending markets in New York sharply lower.

The Dow burrowed even lower, a day after it recorded at its lowest close in six years. Gold prices flirted with $1,000 an ounce. And markets from Hong Kong to London fell sharply on more glum economic data and a round of disappointing corporate news, including the bankruptcy filing of the automaker Saab.

"You can look at everybody's trading screen and see nothing but red," said Tim Smalls, head of United States stock trading at Execution LLC in Greenwich, Conn.
Hey... who cares about all that numbers crap... he's so dreamy.

Have we all taken leave of our senses?

The CBC interviewed some lunatic woman who gravely informed us that, with the election of Barack Obama, she now knew that “everything was going to be okay.”

A sign in the crowd read “First God, then Obama,” which was positively restrained compared to some of the comments one overheard.

And I don’t just mean from the reporters.

When I catch a co-worker mooning about Obama (hard to miss, with the t-shirts and all...), I ask a simple question: which policy of his do you find most attractive?

They can't tell me.

Moral of the story, don't worship idols.
