When most people hear “Barack Obama’s neighbor,” they probably think of slumlord Tony Rezko, whose wife sold the Obamas a patch of dirt once. But it turns out that the Obamas’ Chicago home sits across the street from a synagogue where the presidential candidate’s Secret Service detail occasionally uses the head! Hear what the kindly rabbi neighbor has to say about Our Barry after the jump.
- “He spoke to our congregation as an Illinois state senator; more recently, his Secret Service agents have made use of our, shall we say, facilities.”
- “Barack Obama is brilliant and open-hearted; he is wiser and more thoughtful than his former minister.”
- “Obama is no anti-Semite. He is not anti-Israel. He is one of our own, the one figure on the political scene who remembers our past, and has a real vision for repairing our present.”
Seriously, Barry? Can you not let your own bodyguards into your house for a little thinky time on the john? Because that is just rude.
