      Sherijr, I have watched this so many times, but I never tire of it. Thanks for bringing to mind. I must admit that Darian is a pretty mother fu-ker too.

    Just in case you don’t: This is so worth the listen.. (excessive strong language, but a beautiful tribute to then Senator Obama)

      Thanks, sherijr,

      I had never seen this video, and I don’t know the guy in the video. It is amazing how this guy hit on so many points about PBO but also about the perils of abandoning one’s principles and falling prey to the drunkenness that assuming power can sometimes cause. PBO, I am happy to say, imo, has not abandoned his core principles or become drunk on power.

        Not even tipsy on power.. which is quite beautiful in itself. And Mr. Dauchan’s entire slam is so spot on and insightful.

    I really can’t understand how he’s doing it.
