image for Obama's Half Brother Sponsors Dinner In Nairobi Slum: Raises $36.00 For Campaign Fund
Brother Obama

BILLINGSGATE POST - George Hussein Onyango Obama, Barack's half-brother, put together a campaign fund raising dinner last night in his ramshackle hut in the town of Huruma on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya.

Inviting 36 of his closest friends for a lavish sit-down dinner of rice and an animal to be named latter, the mufti-robed Kenyans squeezed into his mansion that measured "two metre by three metre," according to an article published in Italy's Vanity Fair.

Mr. Obama, 30, the youngest of the president's half-brothers, charged each of his guests 84 Kenyan Shillings, roughly $1.00 American, for the privilege of lining Barack's campaign coffer. Hardly enough to pay for the catered meal, one dollar will get you a cup of Kenyan coffee or a can of Coke with change back in this country.

To put this in perspective, standard class airfare from Nairobi to Mombassa is $170. The cost of flying Air Force One is approximately $179,500 per hour, just for fuel.

In the Vanity Fair story, he told the magazine: "I live like a recluse, no one knows I exist." Embarrassed by his penury, he said that he does not mention his famous half-brother in conversation.

"If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed," he said. He has only met his famous older brother twice - once when he was just five and the last time in 2006 when Senator Obama was on a tour of East Africa and visited Nairobi. Ironically, Barack is not ashamed to mention George in more favorable terms, describing him in his autobiography as a "beautiful boy with a rounded head."

Duuh! How about the bone hanging from his lower lip?

With his donation of $36.00 to Barack's campaign fund, George hopes that the president will recognize this gesture and perhaps augment the paltry one dollar a month that he currently lives on.

Make Dr. Billingsgate's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
