Speaking of Obama, there's a new book out about him: Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama by David Garrow, publication date May 9th.
Reading pre-reviews of it in the newspapers, I don't think I'll be buying the book. All I wanted to know about Obama I read in Steve Sailer's 2008 book America's Half-Blood Prince. To judge from those pre-reviews, there's nothing in this new book that Steve didn't spot ten years ago.
Obama's a gassy narcissist, says Garrow. One of Obama's law-school students told him that, quote: "In law school, the only thing I would have voted for Obama to do would have been to shut up." I know the feeling. I bet several Cantor Fitzgerald employees know it too.
And yes, he dumped his white girlfriend to marry Michelle because he needed a black wife for advancement in Chicago politics. Steve covered that pretty well, and I doubt if it will come as a surprise to anyone — least of all, I imagine, Michelle.
One of the young Obama's friends told Garrow he never thought of him as black. Quote: "He just seemed like a middle-class white kid," end quote. Steve caught that aspect, too. It was Steve, in fact, I'm pretty sure, who nailed Obama most precisely by describing him as, quote, "a black wigger."
That's Obama exactly, precisely: he's a wigger, a middle-class white kid who desperately wants to be black … the strange psychological twist being, of course, that he actually is black.
Well, well: Good luck to Obama on the lecture circuit … just so long as no-one makes me listen to him, ever again.
