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.
