A Partial Explanation of Why I Voted for Obama, Courtesy of Robert Penn Warren

Tell me a story.

In this century, and moment, of mania,
Tell me a story.

Make it a story of great distances, and starlight.

The name of the story will be Time,
But you must not pronounce its name.

Tell me a story of deep delight.

Are you implying that Obama's name is "Time?" Holy cow. That's not American!!!

Vladkin said...

Huh? I don't know!

Carrie M said...

Obama can take me on his knee and tell me a story anytime.

Is that inappropriate?

Hi, Matt! Found your blog through Kari's. Hope you don't mind.

C, with your crazy pappy and his 18-wheeler, you becoming a woman at an NKOTB concert in the late '80s, and your no-longer-secret Obama fetish... I'm a little worried about you. :)

Hey, Carolyn. Bound to happen sooner or later, and of course I don't mind. I should update more often.
