A New "Little Red Book" For Our Times?

Remember that little red book that everyone in Maoist China carried around in their pockets... you know, the Quotations from Chairman Mao? Remember how it was not only required reading, but every citizen had to have a copy on his or her person at all times?

Well, now that we have elected our Obammessiah, The History Company has developed a new "Pocket Obama"
Well, actually it's not red, it's blue... but the publisher states: a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, this book is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obama's speeches and writings. POCKET OBAMA serves as a reminder of the amazing power of oratory and the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words. His superb and captivating oratory style has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this historic collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency. It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times. (emphases added--ed.)
Why is it that the more and more I see this clown portrayed, the more and more he looks like some infamous commie despot? Is art imitating life? Will we soon see little blue books everywhere we turn? Like on the farm fields of Minnesota?

Will the Obammessiah minions see to it that every school child is equipped with a "little blue book?"

Yes, hope and change we can believe in.
