The King Demands Your Presents

Hey, cut her a little slack, wouldja? It's not like she came to the door wearing only a towel or nothin'! Jeez!
The co-chair of Barack Obama's Transition Team, Valerie Jarrett, appeared on Meet the Press this weekend and used, shall we say, an interesting word to described what she thinks Barack Obama will be doing in January when he's officially sworn into office. She told Tom Brokaw that Obama will be ready to "rule" on day one.
Ya, well so what? He is ready to rule the world.

It's a word that reflects the worst fears that people have for Obama the "arrogant," the "messiah," that imagines he's here to "rule" instead of govern.

Jarret told Brokaw that "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."

Hey, it's not like she thinks Africa is a country or somethin' stupid! She just said he's ready to take the throne!

A Freudian slip, I suppose! But I have great concern that we'll be losing more of our freedoms under Obama. I just hope that as time goes on, the American people will wake up and stop the messiah nonsense.
