Now With 100% Less Mormon(tm), the Hugh Hewitt show is back to normal post -CPAC and unfortunately, “normal” sometimes means “goofy”.
Hewitt has only recently discovered Obama’s memoir (a year after Steve “But He’s A RACIST!!” Sailer started blogging about it), and just yesterday found out that Obama had recorded the audiobook version (it won a Spoken Word Grammy in 2005).
Hewitt (who should know better) and some of his callers (who clearly don’t) is SHOCKED that this memoir includes descriptions of drug use, the word “******” and lots of swearing.
Uhm. It’s a memoir. You know? Kinda like… art?
As I’ve frequently noted, Obama is much more interesting than the typical politician, in sizable part because he’s a creative artist, perhaps best described as an “identity artist” reminiscent of David Bowie in his ability to mold and change his own persona. For example, here’s a wonderful video of Obama giving a 2007 speech to a conference of black clergy, where he has a much different accent and body language: languid, cocky, florid, and Southern.
Me? All I could think of while listening to the clips was, “Man, this guy uses WAY too many adjectives.”
And that, boys and girls, is the difference between Protestants and Catholics…
