Quote:"I'm Barack Obama, the Marxist professor. I spent the last two years of high school in a daze. I inhaled frequently - that was the point. Pot helped, and booze. A little blow when you could afford it. Junkie, pothead, that's where I was headed. Sh!t's gettin way too complicated for me. There are white folks, and then there are ignorant mutherfruckers like you! Sorry ass mutherfrucker's got nuttin on me. You can put lipstick on a pig. You ain't my biatch n!gger, buy your own damn fries! I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, (my father Colonel) Lolo (Soetoro) followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share."
