Me Nombre Es Barack Obama“; “y Me Nombre Es Barack Obama

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember when I told you about the many young dummies across America who adopted the middle name Hussein in solidarity with Barack Hussein Obama? Then, there’s the “I am Sarah Palin” women, too–almost as annoying. The “I am . . .” stuff is old, real old, past the expiration date.
And now, our Finnish friend Kenneth Sikorski of Tundra Tabloids (a great site on the Islamic threat in Europe and throughout the globe), notes that Brazil has its share of similar Obamaniac stupidity, with six men who’ve taken the legal steps so that they can now say “Yo Soy Barack Obama“.
Que Pasa with all this stupidity? Given the plastic surgery trend in that country, a vapid name change is no big deal, right?:

One of Brazil’s Six New Barack Obamas on the Ballot

Walk into a polling station in Belford Roxo, an impoverished city on the fringes of Rio de Janiero, on October 5 and you will be faced with an historic choice. You could vote for Alcides Rolim, the Workers’ Party mayoral candidate promising a “city for all” or Elizeu Pitorra, a local communist who believes it is “time for a change”. Most voters, however, will probably opt for Barack Obama, a 39-year-old Brazilian who, until recently, was known as Claudio Henrique dos Anjos.
Welcome to Obama-mania, Brazil-style. Few countries have embraced the idea of the US’s first black president as enthusiastically as Brazil, a country with one of the largest Afro-descendant populations on Earth yet where black faces remain a minority in politics. . . .
Now even Brazil’s politicians are lining up for their piece of the pie. Due to a quirk of Brazilian law, candidates are allowed to run under the name of their choice. As a result, at least six Brazilian politicians have officially renamed themselves “Barack Obama” in a bid to get an edge over their rivals in October’s municipal elections.

Oy.

Maybe everyone is high on drugs these days & lost all ability to think rationally. It’s also a decline in our political leaders, rock stars or some other kind of image rather than that of an experienced statesman. Although the cult of FDR comes close. Lots of hero worship of him in the 30s and 40s by people whose interests he couldn’t care less about. We still run across people named “Roosevelt”.

What happens when the obamessiah turns out to be a big ‘zero?’ Hopefully, these losers will be flushed down the hole along with him.

Meu nomo e Barack Obama would be how they say it in Brazil. They speak Portuguese there, not Spanish.
[M: YOU ARE RIGHT. CORRECTED. DS]
