Besides the fact that this article from the "objective media" is a disgusting stroke-piece, it also shows that, contrary to popular belief, we live in some kind of constitutional monarchy. From Nancy Gibbs Time:
Some princes are born in palaces. Some are born in mangers. But a few are born in the imagination, out of scraps of history and hope. Barack Obama never talks about how people see him: I'm not the one making history, he said every chance he got. You are. Yet as he looked out Tuesday night through the bulletproof glass, in a park named for a Civil War general, he had to see the truth on people's faces. We are the ones we've been waiting for, he liked to say, but people were waiting for him, waiting for someone to finish what a King began.Did we lose a war or something? Didn't we have a Declaration of Independence and Revolutionary War to prevent this sort of nonsense? Why did history teacher lie to me!
As a side note, the only person I'd be willing to have as my monarch is the extremely bad-ass, King Kong. Mostly because he could clean that punk-ass Godzilla's clock. That radioactive lizard been causing a public relations nightmare for nuclear power for decades (besides destroying Tokyo).
