I want a time machine and $50,000 to travel to 1961 and make bets with people that the person who'll be president in 2012 is a kid with an African dad who was just born in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and he'll be a two-termer who beat a POW war hero and a quarter-billionaire in the elections and a former first lady in the primaries.**
The internet is smoking today* with the shocking revelations of young Barack Obama taking pakalolo “roof hits” and holding the hits for “total absorbtion” with his laid-back gang of Hawaiian pals, the “Choom Gang”.
Just days before the release of this new book, entertainer Penn Jillette, one who has never used a drug, (liquid, pill, or herbal) in his life, called out President Obama by noting that if he’d been prosecuted under the drug laws he supports today, he never would have become president.
So I just wanted to bring back this audio clip, a blast from the past featuring Dan Michaels voice-over work, music from brokenpoetz, and the words of our own Commander-In-Kief***, to remind folks that while HuffPo and Penn Jillette are just starting to make this kind of noise, I’ve noted for a long time:
Mr. President, you once were just one bust away from being Barry the Drug Criminal.
* Hey, why not a pot pun in the lede? Everybody else is doing it…
** And I’ve got the AFL’s Jets with a QB who wears panty hose to beat Johnny U’s Colts when the future 3rd AFL/NFL World Championships are played. And then I’m outta there, because I’ll be born nineteen days later.
*** Once you start, you just can’t stop.
