All bow down...

In Topeka, Kansas, planning sessions are being held to try to get a national holiday in honor of the Obamessiah. From the article: "At 7:30 a.m. on Inauguration Day, Obama Cake will be served at the downtown McDonald's..."

I'm not sure what Obama Cake is. Maybe it's made with puff pastry in honor of the empty suit?

UPDATE: A great article from the Mail: "I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts."

Not very reassuring...

From, among many other places, NewsBusters: "Obama ready to rule on day one."

Valerie Jarrett, co-chair of the Obama transition team, appeared on Meet the Press this past weekend. Among the things she said is this:

"...given the daunting challenges that we face, it's important that president elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one."

Presidents govern. Kings or emperors rule.

Pet peeve

The name of the Linux distribution I use is pronounced "oo-BOON-too", not "oo-BUN-too" or "uh-BUN-too". Everybody got that? OK.

(And that's "oo" as in "food".)
