There's no one as Irish as Barack O'Bama

Even though we didn't vote for him, and don't particularly share his political views, we do find hope in the fact that Barack Obama, a man of mixed ethnicity, has been voted into the highest office. Many others have written much more inspiring posts and articles about the racial healing that the Obama presidency will bring to this nation, and about what a wonderful new chapter in American democracy has now been ushered in...

This isn't exactly one of those posts. :)

Check out this hilarious (and true!) song about Obama -- apparently, Obama himself sings this song in the shower, and invited this band to his inauguration:

NOTE: A better version of the song is available here; embedding was disabled on that video, though.

Seriously though, David and I do appreciate the importance of Obama's election, from a race history perspective. Our prayers are with our new President and his administration.
