Ego-bama is reading the latest GQ. You know, the one with him on the cover

by editor on November 23, 2009

ego obama

You have to be a bit of an egomaniac to be a politician. In fact, it may be an absolute requirement.

obama on leader-gq But, c’mon, our current Commander-In-Chief takes it to a new level.

GQ, once known as Gentleman’s Quarterly, is about as far to the left as a publication can get. So, naturally, when they decided to do a “Men of the Year” issue, they also decided to feature Barack Obama. Not just as Man of the Year, mind you, but as Leader of the Year. And they filled the cover of the magazine with his huge, smiling mug.

That, of course, makes it even funnier that President Ego-bama was caught carrying the magazine.

Not that it’s surprising. After all, Barack Obama is Barack Obama’s favorite topic.

Yeah, what’s with the Gitmo Go Aheads? BamBam’s off his game…not looking like the Rock Star that he thinks he is. Did he forget the paps with the freakin’ Hubble lens are watching 24/7?

“It is becoming obvious to many Americans that the true definition of Infinite is the size of our Dear Leader’s ego.” – onlyme

It. Never. Ends.

The incessant need for adulation (and SELF-adulation) is beyond human comprehension! I am reminded of West Side Story (SNL take note…I want proper credit when you do the skit! LOL!) when Maria sings,

I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty
That the city should give me its key.
A committee
Should be organized to honor me.

If you’ve forgotten most of the lyrics like I have, go and take a peek…you just might die of laughter when you realize those words have more meaning today in regard to Obama’s self love than they ever did for “Maria”.

We are so screwed. *sigh*

Everyone is wailing about jobs and the economy while our president struts around in a fog of self love. But what about our culture? Young girls pay $500 dollars for jeans with holes in them. They all have bones in their noses and tattoos on their butts while the young men wear their pants around their knees. Our deepest thinkers are named M and M or 50 Cent. The melody in music has been replaced by lyrics about cop killing. Michael Jackson is the new Elvis. Vampires and Mummies have replaced Tracy and Bogart. The dollar is the new nickel and Adam Lambert is the new Frank Sinatra. Diversity is more important than integrity,and political correctness has replaced the constitution. Lots of luck America.

Huck, while i agree that our culture praises some things that are not the best…Ice-T wrote Cop Killer like 15 years ago….
Our deepest thinkers according to “who” are eminem and 50 cent…
I have listened to that music, however I realize it is music…many people in this country cannot distiguish between reality and reality TV.
I cannot blame society for this sort of thing…I blame individuals for not being smart enough to be able to make decisions on their own…Which probably goes back to the kids parents…

This is no means an attack on you huck…I feel the same way sometime…but I cannot blame society…I blame people….

Bambi has no clue what is going on…his people prop him up as sOOOOO smart that no one knows what he is actually doing…which is laughable. The ego of his is comical…and the only thing more commical is the people that beleive in him no matter what…

Re: Barry Bonds – At least Barry scared the hell out of his opponents. We just wish Obama could get up a little ‘roid rage and scare the hell out of our enemies instead of trying – and failing – to charm them.

Not so fast, Duke Guy. Obama’s been on the cover of Mad three times already in 2009.

Mad Magazine Barack Obama Cover 1

Obviously Obama took Whitney Houston’s lyrics of the Greatest Love of All a little to heart.

Yes learning to love yourself is a good thing but this is a bit ridiculous.

He’s on all these covers. Don’t these photo shoots take time? Where does he get the time?

Sadly for him, he can only golf 18 holes once a week, rather than twice.

We should appreciate his sacrifices.
