Coming Soon! Senator Barack Obama in Stroker Ace 2008!
Sonny Lawson, played by the great Burt Reynolds in the movie The End ( 1978) tried to drown himself in the sea and got to changing his mind. Lawson screams out 'Lord, I want to live!' and casts forth a litany of deals that The Almighty can not refuse: 'I'll give away all my possessions to the poor, your name' & etc.
The Tide, or the Hand of the Almighty gently surfs Sonny back to shore and Sonny edits his promises to God accordingly.
'Fifty percent, Lord! I'm talking gross!' Gradually, Sonny gets to live and The Omnipotent gets Bupkis.
Here in what appears to be a remake of The End - we see a back-sliding ingenue, who in March made deals to the Media and American People - It's a YouTube World Senator!
Now, with his campaign flush with spending loot. Senator Obama is playing Sonny Lawson - without make-up!
Obama didn't always feel this way. Last March, Obama spokesman Bill Burton said the candidate would "aggressively pursue an agreement with the Republican nominee to preserve a publicly financed general election." Obama also told the Midwest Democracy Network, in a questionnaire, that he would participate in the system, writing that he had proposed a system in which "both major party candidates...agree on a fundraising truce, return excess money from donors, and stay within the public financing system for the general election."

McCain is as good as his word. On Publicly Funded Campaign Financing, Senator John McCain is allover it! “We both made a commitment to take public financing. There’s nothing to talk about. We either keep our word or we don’t keep our word,” McCain said in New York Wednesday. Well, there's commitment's and then there's commitments!
Ask Hollywood - they're Obama's Grassroots. Them folks do commitments, like a lawyer takes 30%! 'Lunch, Baby! You're the Best! . . . Lose that Stiff - See He Dies a Hollywood Squares Death! Put His Children in Bondage! Get me a New Bluetooth, Dana You're Breaking Up! Hey, You're Fired! Tell Your Mother!'
Change You can count on! But don't expect to blow the ink-dry on Obama's currency.
