How ironic, Obama looks like a more authentic cowboy than Dubya

Do you think FYM can handle an Obama photo thread?

It should go in PLEBA, and then PLEBA should be renamed O'PLEBA.

The first is a photo of him greeting Hillary in Atlanta, the second is a photo of him whispering to Obama at a church in Selma.

OK thanks

This video is fascinating, showing the parallel between the 2008 race and West Wing (the TV show):

Agreed. I don't think it's a bad thing that conservative radio hates McCain. Maybe when the general election starts we can have a conversation about ideas and issues, not hatred and histrionics.

That's a cute t-shirt. If you're Irish do you get it for free?

Ancestry.com has uncovered the Irish roots of Barack Obama. The Senator’s third great grandfather was born in Ireland and immigrated to the United States in 1850.

Ancestry.com, the world’s largest online resource for family history which recently discovered Al Sharpton’s shocking connection to Strom Thurmond, has discovered that presidential hopeful Barack Obama has Irish branches in his family tree. More than a century and a half ago, 19-year-old Falmouth Kearney, Obama’s third great-grandfather, sailed from Ireland, landing in New York harbor on March 20, 1850.

Settling initially in Ohio among Irish relatives, Falmouth married, had eight children, and eventually moved to Indiana. Three of Falmouth’s daughters married three brothers with the last name Dunham. Obama’s mother is descended from one of these couples — her birth name was Dunham.

Falmouth was among the thousands of Irish immigrating to America to escape the late 1840s potato famine in Ireland. By 1860, New York City had the largest Irish population in the world — a quarter of its residents had been born in Ireland.

If Obama succeeds in his presidential aspirations, he won’t be the first Commander in Chief with ties to Ireland. Ronald Reagan’s great-grandfather, Michael O’Regan, was born in Ireland in the 1820s, as was John F. Kennedy’s great-grandfather, Patrick Kennedy.

In fact, JFK’s home state of Massachusetts boasts the highest per capita Irish population with 24 percent of its residents claiming Irish heritage. Interestingly, the White House was also designed by Irishman James Hoban.
