The Obama National Holiday

November 10, 2008

Well, that didn’t take long. I knew that, at some point, we would have a holiday for this guy (or at least a push for it).  I figured it wouldn’t happen until he was out of office or if, God forbid, something happened to end his term short.  This is getting ridiculous.

Plans are being made to promote a national holiday for Barack Obama, who will become the nation’s 44th president when he takes the oath of office Jan. 20.

“Yes We Can” planning rallies will be at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. every Tuesday at the downtown McDonald’s restaurant, 1100 Kansas Ave., until Jan. 13. The goals are to secure a national holiday in Obama’s honor, to organize celebrations around his inauguration and to celebrate the 200th birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, who was born on Feb. 12 1809.

At 7:30 a.m. on Inauguration Day, Obama Cake will be served at the downtown McDonald’s, and a celebration is scheduled for 8 p.m. to midnight Jan. 20 at the Ramada Hotel and Convention Center, 420 S.E. 6th.

“Obama cake”?  Good Lord…

  1. I support, and suggest the day be on the first Tuesday in November, but we only celebrate every 4th year?

    And he has done nothing to deserve this unlike Martin Luther King who actually made real “change” to America!
