|For this we climbed 15,000 feet?|
The halls of History already ring with many a lesser phrase. "Four score and seven years ago," "Give me liberty or give me death," "Ask not what your country can do for you," "I have been to the mountaintop," and "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" all fall by the wayside when compared to Mr. Obama's brilliantly galvanizing insight.
Can any of us, in our heart of hearts, truly deny that our current woes - personal, professional, or political - were caused by falling for the okey-doke? Of course not. We are all only human, and it is widely known that the devil mixes his okey-doke with truth to confuse us. And sometimes he or she mixes the okey-doke with promises of subsidies and entitlements, especially during election years.
While it may be debatable which of the remaining presidential candidates is throwing around the most okey-doke, there's no question that the total quantity is rising a lot faster than ocean levels and is a significantly greater danger to our world and way of life.
For this reason, after nearly 8 years, Hope n' Change is finally taking the unprecedented step of actually agreeing with something Barack Obama has said: "Don't fall for the okey-doke." Not now, not ever again.
Wait - what's that you say? You don't actually know what okey-doke means...?
Well, truthfully, we're not sure either. But we suspect it might be Kenyan for "bullshit."
