But Is Barry Maybe Too Much Of A Pussy?

Historically, Americans have never broken for the adorable upstartSure, he’s a charismatic rainbow child whose half-man, half-Muslim, half-unicorn heritage makes him a ringer for Jack Kennedy. But is Senator Barack Obama maybe too much of a pussy to pull off this election thing? Experts disagree!

On the one hand, he’s had such a hard life commuting between exotic locales such as Indonesia and Hawaii, being married to a snappy dresser with a six-figure income, and winning his Senate seat in a virtually uncontested race. Despite these hardships, “he’s not a person who is easily rattled,” says a former law partner.

On the other hand, Obama is “young” and a “newcomer,” and there is nothing that Americans hate more than youth.
