Obama The Musical??!!

November 4, 2008

From the Trib:

“Nowhere outside the United States is Tuesday’s presidential election more eagerly awaited than in Kenya, where Obama is claimed as a native son thanks to his Kenyan father, who died in a car crash in 1982.
Oversize television screens were being erected around the country Monday so Kenyans can watch the U.S. returns live.
Last week, thespians in Nairobi put on a production of, ‘Obama the Musical.’ The prime minister and 10 Cabinet ministers endorsed Obama’s candidacy, and people in the streets paraded in Obama T-shirts.
‘Party mood as Obama on course for victory,’ read a front-page headline in Monday’s edition of The Standard, one of Kenya’s leading newspapers.
‘It’s almost like he’s being elected right here,’ observed Stephan Otieno, a youth organizer in Kisumu, the largest city in lush western Kenya, where either huge street parties—or protests—are expected after U.S. election returns come in.”

WTF is going to happen when this guy visits Africa as the President of the United States? Can you imagine?
