President Dreamboat Eyes

I bet y’all thought I was going to go for Julia tonight, but I had to lead with sarong.

She talked about how Obama walked around his bedroom bare-chested, dressed in a blue and white sarong while working on a New York Times crossword puzzle.

“I open the door that Barack keeps closed to his room and enter in a warm, private space pervaded by a mixture of smells that so strongly speak of his presence, his liveliness, his habits — running sweat, Brut spray deodorant, smoking, eating raisins, sleeping, breathing,” Cook wrote.

Um. Ew.

Okay, but here’s the spooky bit:

Cook said when she told Obama she loved him, he responded: “Thank you.”

Thank you?! Oh, I understand there are times when saying “I love you, too” is a commitment too far, but I can think of a dozen ways to say that that aren’t quite so…malignantly narcissistic. Phew.

Also, I’ll cut the guy some slack on this one: he had a nomadic childhood and mixed heritage, so it’s probably legit to spend a little time chewing on identity issues. But the article makes him sound like some kind of freaky self-conscious PR construct.

Have you ever noticed young lefties spend lots of time working out who they are while young righties are working out what they want to do?

Right. Now we can rag on poor Julia if you want.
