Obama’s Challenge: What To Do When Unemployed At 56?

Poor Barack Obama…he may find himself unemployed at the tender age of 56, in January 2017. What to do? And how to top the job of President of the United States of America?

Two solutions spring to mind. Obama may move into the entertainment business, as a rock or movie star. I am sure people will scramble to buy tickets no matter how good or bad he would be with a guitar or on a cinema screen.

The other possibility is to become Pope. All he’ll have to do is a “Tony Blair” and convert to Roman Catholicism after leaving office. That’ll make him eligible to be elected as successor of Benedict XVI, most likely by popular acclamation like the Popes of old.

If anybody cannot believe in the above: just imagine telling anybody in 1951 that the main actor in “Bedtime for Bonzo” was bound to become one of the most beloved Presidents in history. Ah, and that a 15-year-old in Kenya was going to be the father of the 44th President.

Elezioni Americane: L’Ironia Involontaria di Tramballi

Segnalo un episodio di ironia evidentemente involontaria di Ugo Tramballi nella puntata di “Jefferson Ming” su Radio24 il 6 ottobre…quando ha raccontato di come avesse riso, all’epoca, al pensiero di Reagan Presidente, solo per poi considerarlo un grande Presidente. Poi pero’ e’ passato senza colpo ferire alla solita tiritera su quanto e’ ridicola la candidatura di Sarah Palin (la quale almeno, al contrario di Ronal “Gipper” Reagan, non ha mai condiviso gli onori della cronaca con una scimmia…).

Certo uno non puo’ aspettarsi la par condicio a Jefferson Ming, ma almeno potrebbero mostrare un po’ piu’ di autocoscienza invece che le solite analisi brutalmente “di parte”…
