A Polemic 

A recent issue 
of the New York Review of Books,
Finds my Bard colleague 
Ian Buruma 
citing approvingly 
the following remark 
in a biography 
of Barack Obama's mother:

"To describe Dunham 
as a white woman from Kansas 
is about as illuminating 
as describing her son 
as a politician 
who likes golf." 

Au contraire mon chère ami!  
Those five words 
tell as all we need to know 

about our President.
