Obama the Builder

A common refrain in Barack Obama's speeches and among his supporters is the phrase "Yes we can!" My time spent working in a children's nursery has forever linked that phrase to a certain Nick Jr. character. So inside my head, Obama's theme song is:

Barack! Obama...
Can we do it?
Barack! Obama...
Yes we can!

It seems oddly appropriate.

(Of course I have in depth things to say about the current election season, I just don't have the time or energy to write it down and organize it right now. So this is my contribution to the political dialog. Well, he is popular among the preschool set. Maybe he can run some campaign adds on Nickelodeon.)
