The rise and fall of Obama bin Laden

The Lizard Queen doesn’t take kindly to rivals:

Are the American people ready for an elected president who was educated in a Madrassa as a young boy and has not been forthcoming about his Muslim heritage?

This is the question Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s camp is asking about Sen. Barack Obama.

An investigation of Mr. Obama by political opponents within the Democratic Party has discovered that Mr. Obama was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Indonesia. Sources close to the background check, which has not yet been released, said Mr. Obama, 45, spent at least four years in a so-called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia.

You’ll note that I’ve never paid much attention to the Obama hype. He’s not only a lightweight, he’s less electable than Ron Paul. The Lizard Queen could chew him up as a snack after her scheduled daily “relaxation” with Kim Gandy and one of the National Zoo’s Komodo dragons.

(The dragons take turns, they just can’t keep up with the indefatigable Ms Gandy.)

More likely, she’ll keep him around as harmless vice-president material. Any time he gets uppity, she’ll just hiss “zip it, Osama, or it’s Guantanamo Bay for you!”

My feeling is that Obama is playing for the vice-presidency anyhow. He’s not a serious candidate, his qualifications are no more serious than Tom Tancredo’s, who we are repeatedly assured cannot be considered a genuine possibility. But he should be able to ride the hype wave to the vice-presidency as long as he doesn’t overdo it and piss off the Lizard Queen.

The best way to tell is if he pointedly refrains from criticizing Hillary. A real rival would have her flayed and displayed for all to see, whereas a few gentle pokes to get her attention indicates a desire to play remora to her shark.
