Obama: I used to pray every night - now I pray ALL the time
(and get devotionals on my Blackberry) Daily Mail UK
Gawd. What a sly ass. The Blackberry Prayer? Really?
" The Blackberry Prayer: The supplicating position one assumes when grasping the popular six-ounce wireless combination e-mailer/phone known as the BlackBerry between your palms and thumb-tapping messages on its QWERTY keyboard." Urban Dictionary
It makes one wonder, doesn't it, if every one of his sentences is peppered with purposefully provocative words and phrases that are not what they seem to be on the surface. The use of "jigger" in the race baiting firebomb he threw out Wednesday night, the implication that the Secret Service would shoot him if he tried to enter a locked White House, the blue collar-style libation he suggested as a peacemaker between police and accuser.
I find that last one particularly interesting because the only beers BO consumes are for the cameras. The drinking preferences of both Obamas has been obsessively cataloged all over the internet. Evey breathless report about those romantic dates nights includes a reference to World Famous Fashion Icon and Busy Mom Michelle Obama's™ two pre-dinner martinis and mentions the selections of fine wines during the meal.
But for this high-profile event, the drink offered is a beer. Why? Because the cop is a blue-collar man in America? Maybe Professor Gates will change his plans and do a documentary on beer-drinkers for PBS.
