48. I love the smell of napalm in the morning!
It seems like Obama doesn't realize that he would not be senator from Illinois if there had been no civil rights movement and no person of color had ever taken that step into a newly integrated classroom.

His Mom sounds like a real '60s type even though she was a couple of years too old to be a boomer technically. Do you suppose that he has serious unresolved issues with her and her life?
