Tales Of Youthful Barack Obama Nerd Love

by Jim Newell

I hate America so muchVanity Fair is out with the megahot megastory of the day: Barack Obama had girlfriends when he was a young man in New York City. Figures. And writer David Maraniss even contacted some of these ladies and got them to hand over the ol’ love letters and journals. (This was in the Ancient Times, before people showed their love by clicking buttons on computers.) It’s predictable Obama musings — wah wah I am conflicted between different things wah wah, and also I know a lot about poets and stuff, wah.

Obama spent a summer shackin’ up with this one gal, Alex McNear, “a young woman from Occidental who had enchanted Obama when she was co-editing the literary magazine Feast.” Oh God. “Alex was interested in postmodern literary criticism, and her arguments brimmed with the deconstructionist ideas of Jacques Derrida, the French philosopher. In one letter she told Obama that she was writing a paper in her modern-poetry class at Occidental about T. S. Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land.’” Oh God. And what did you think about “The Waste Land,” Obama? “I haven’t read ‘The Waste Land’ for a year,” he starts. He is so Columbia, yikes:

I haven’t read “The Waste Land” for a year, and I never did bother to check all the footnotes. But I will hazard these statements—Eliot contains the same ecstatic vision which runs from Münzer to Yeats. However, he retains a grounding in the social reality/order of his time. Facing what he perceives as a choice between ecstatic chaos and lifeless mechanistic order, he accedes to maintaining a separation of asexual purity and brutal sexual reality. And he wears a stoical face before this. Read his essay on Tradition and the Individual Talent, as well as Four Quartets, when he’s less concerned with depicting moribund Europe, to catch a sense of what I speak. Remember how I said there’s a certain kind of conservatism which I respect more than bourgeois liberalism—Eliot is of this type. Of course, the dichotomy he maintains is reactionary, but it’s due to a deep fatalism, not ignorance. (Counter him with Yeats or Pound, who, arising from the same milieu, opted to support Hitler and Mussolini.) And this fatalism is born out of the relation between fertility and death, which I touched on in my last letter—life feeds on itself. A fatalism I share with the western tradition at times. You seem surprised at Eliot’s irreconcilable ambivalence; don’t you share this ambivalence yourself, Alex?

That’s got to be the quintessential Obama pick-up line: “Don’t you share this ambivalence yourself?” Ranks right up there with, “Don’t you see this as a social construct?” or “UHHHHHH look,” at least.

Barb May 2, 2012 at 11:04 am

I envy Alex McNear.

BaldarTFlagass May 2, 2012 at 11:04 am

Was he miscegenating? Because if he was, the righties will be short-stroking this shit all over the place.

actor212 May 2, 2012 at 11:06 am

Well, this could be tricky, because the article here says he was "shacking up," but then Bristol is in a trial marriage so there could be blowback.

Errrr, no pun intended…

NellCote71 May 2, 2012 at 11:14 am

OT. But do you know what Levi and his ladyfriend have picked for their girl baby's name? Breeze Beretta. I am not making this up.

Barb May 2, 2012 at 11:18 am

Yes, and Levi and Sunny are already starting to set up their nest. They have four empty Cool Whip tubs and now they can scratch "salad bowl set" off their wedding registry at Big Lots.

Schmannnity May 2, 2012 at 11:19 am

Ooooh, a new naming convention: middle name after a gun manufacturer. I hope the second daughter is Stormy Glock.

notgross May 2, 2012 at 11:24 am

Well, the Right always likes to remind us he is "half white" so they can't use that against him.

SorosBot May 2, 2012 at 11:37 am

Indeed, he was miscegnating unless Alex was also a half-breed Muslim.

elviouslyqueer May 2, 2012 at 11:43 am

Um, SB? Her last name is McNear. Hel-LO.

timbo71351 May 2, 2012 at 12:09 pm

No shit. That was my biggest fear in 2008 — that some white woman would come out the woodwork with tales how a young Barry screwed her and never called her back, or cheated on her with another girl and lied about it. You know, the sort of dumb bullshit that all college dudes do. Except in this case, Fox News would turn it into "He lied to his white girlfriend when he was 21. Can we really trust this man?"

Redhead May 2, 2012 at 1:15 pm

No, Fox News would turn it into "Obama lies to white people to advanced the NAACP's secret terrorist pact/agenda with Al Quaeda. All the time."

Big deal I’m sure George W Bush’s early love letters were full of references to impressionist poets.

"This poem left an impression on me:

If "Impressionist Poets" was the name of his coke dealer, then yes.

"…a sense of what I speak."

WTF, Barry? Ya go to college in 18th century England or wha?!!

Also, too, needz moar "send pics of yer tits".

actor212 May 2, 2012 at 11:07 am

Hey now! He probably took that time machine back to this point, so he knew he'd be President already.

Maman May 2, 2012 at 11:06 am

Why is this interesting? Other than the fact that the President isn't pretending to be literate?

Rumour has it that Romney mansioned-up with a woman in France but he just quoted The Book of Mormon and Horse Husbandry Quarterly to her.

My thought exactly. I enjoy listening to the nerd stuff as well although my tastes run more to the sciences but the Al Green singing immediately activates the libido.

Did you ever read The National Lampoon Highschool Yearbook? It's hilarious on its own – and much of it later appeared in that movie.

Dudleydidwrong May 2, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Right. It may be the funniest thing ever published. I'm glad that someone else has extremely refined taste in great literature. You're not related to Madison Avenue "Zippy" Jones, are you?

Tundra Grifter May 2, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I did go to school with Rufus Leaking.

Tundra Grifter May 2, 2012 at 1:06 pm

After we got ripped one evening I showed a couple of my friends my copy and told them it was my high school yearbook. Obviously, I had to turn it over so the no-panties cheerleader wasn't on the cover.

They more or less believed it until Jerry saw the page of freshmen photos the size of postage stamps (or, these days, Wonkette icons). Then they knew they'd been had.

SnarkoMarx May 3, 2012 at 7:38 am

Yes, having been a teenager in the seventies I think I probably purchased and read (multiple times) every single thing National Lampoon ever published.

Designer_Rants May 2, 2012 at 11:11 am

WTF? If I wuz Obummer, I woulda just wrote "I wanna get up inside yer panties and start a fire". Bitches love panty fire.

"I wanna climb on you like you was a tree."

Chichikovovich May 2, 2012 at 11:37 am

That's Mitt's line. Followed by compliments on her height.

Baconzgood May 2, 2012 at 11:24 am

I was always partial to "Wrap your thighs around my eyes so I can give my tounge some exercise". But I'm a romantic.

Wait, poetry is a way to a girl's heart? But according to the conservatives it's treating her like crap, expecting her to act as your servant and giving her diamonds in return.

That's the way to her vagina. They don't care about the heart, scept it keeps beating

MissTaken May 2, 2012 at 11:21 am

Poetry is the way into a smart girl's heart. But if you are looking to get into a hot, dumb girl's panties try Midori sours.

SorosBot May 2, 2012 at 11:35 am

And I think the way to get into a dumb guy's boxers are Bud Lite and football statistics.

Chichikovovich May 2, 2012 at 11:40 am

There's also the time-tested phrase "I want to get into your boxers now." Though it might be wise to add "That means fucking, by the way." To avoid misunderstanding.

He's got it down perfect–how to be intellectual, aloof, and 'not immediately interested in sex' enough to charm his way around any smart girl's panties or bra clasps.

This sort of intellectual pettifoggery makes college English majors swoon. Which is part of why I majored in history.

But if he really is this darn smart, why all the caving in to racist inbred flat earth toadies? And banks, wtf?

Remember how I said there’s a certain kind of conservatism which I respect more than bourgeois liberalism—Eliot is of this type.

Pfah — there's a reason Eliot became a boring Anglican children's poet later in life, Barry — bourgeois liberalism at least doesn't face the choice of either insanity or stultification.

Tommy1733 May 2, 2012 at 12:57 pm

You got sumpin against T. S. Elliot? We gonna hafta duke this out.

SayItWithWookies May 2, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Not against the TS Eliot in his younger days who wrote The Waste Land and The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock among other very good poems — just against the boring, simpleminded Anglican upperclass wannabe who penned the perfectly awful Murder in the Cathedral and Old Mr. Possum's Book of Practical Cats. Hell, if they put Pound in jail for praising Mussolini, the least they could do was tattoo "I'm actually from St. Louis, Missouri" on Eliot's forehead.

Tommy1733 May 2, 2012 at 2:43 pm

First saw that in the "Sylvia" comic in the late 80's; I wrote it on a white-board in the hallway of the U of Arizona English department, and it prompted a pedantic paragraph-long reply condemning rubes who mock what they don't take the time to pay attention to.

Now we have blogs for that sort of thing.

When I read that Alex McNear was from Occidental, I assumed that Barry had been in bed with the oil companies for years.

Nostrildamus May 2, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Up side – doing Barry.
Down side – post-modern literary criticism.
I call it a wash.

thecoppertop May 2, 2012 at 12:32 pm

I'm not sure whether to be proud or annoyed that I've spent most of my twenties dating similarly aloof and pretentious dudes. Thank Christ Michelle came along, presumably to say "Do you ever stop WHINING?!"

Dudleydidwrong May 2, 2012 at 12:39 pm

The interesting thing is that there isn't a Republican politician who can understand that letter from Barry so they won't know how to make it an issue.

Tommy1733 May 2, 2012 at 12:55 pm

I want this on a bumper sticker: "You seem surprised at Eliot’s irreconcilable ambivalence; don’t you share this ambivalence yourself, Alex?"

I prefer, "Tramps like us, baby, we were born to run," but a deconstruction of Eliot would get points for someone that cute.

Buckminster May 2, 2012 at 7:52 pm

Well, Barry, I think you lost the GOP supporters at "maintaining a separation of asexual purity and brutal sexual reality." Tha heads all aspoded and they went running madly, yelling, "Black man, white wimmens, ooh, ooh, ooh." And then they went "wee wee wee," all the way home. Idiots.

Damn. Most of us, if our college love letters were preserved, would be harassed in the press for statements like, "If you don't consider doing anal by the next college function, I am dating your roomate Amy instead."

Oh, Barry. You are trying, way, way, way too hard. I'm so glad you got through this phase. lol

I'm flattered, thanks. My own best guess is that it comes from too many pucks to the forehead back in my goaltending days.—
