INDIANA - Telling his staged barn audience that "I'm just like ya'll" Barack Obama, showing his half-white side, said he often chose iceberg lettuce over arugula in his toasted prosciutto and asiago cheese panini.
Later he connected with the rural voter by playing a game of hoops - as the best winning high school basketball team in the state stood by as if Botoxed to the spot. Obama is attempting to win over white voters by showing them he is jest a reglar guy.
Number One groupie Caroline Kennedy beseeched the crowd to vote for him because he is the only one to pick up from where her father left off. In a statement that beggars disbelief a straight-faced Caroline said her support for Obama was driven by the fact that "I connect with him because we were both raised by single mothers".
Background music was provided by a sultry voiced Marilyn Monroe whispering "Happy birthday Mr. President".
Meanwhile, following her robust defence of ma man Barack, Michelle Obama went back on the Oprah show to convince everyone to vote for her man because she knows that he will be the best choice.
The future First Lady said she has been very busy lately. "I've taken time off from my job to do little wifely things for Barack such as polishing his tarnished halo".
