Well, once again, it is time for the most celebrated and anticipated week on the Obama Discovery Channel in which we uncover new and exciting “facts” every day about The One. It’s SNARK WEEK!
Columnist Mark Steyn starts it off by doing what he does so well, deliciously skewering Obama, his sycophantic supporters and the lap dog media (once again, I repeat myself).
This periodic installment of Snark Week is at NRO and is called Obama’s Great American Novel.
A little taste:
Courtesy of David Maraniss’s new book, we now know that yet another key prop of Barack Obama’s identity is false: His Kenyan grandfather was not brutally tortured or even non-brutally detained by his British colonial masters. The composite gram’pa joins an ever-swelling cast of characters from Barack’s “memoir” who, to put it discreetly, differ somewhat in reality from their bit parts in the grand Obama narrative. The best friend at school portrayed in Obama’s autobiography as “a symbol of young blackness” was, in fact, half Japanese, and not a close friend. The white girlfriend he took to an off-Broadway play that prompted an angry post-show exchange about race never saw the play, dated Obama in an entirely different time zone, and had no such world-historically significant conversation with him. His Indonesian step-grandfather supposedly killed by Dutch soldiers during his people’s valiant struggle against colonialism met his actual demise when he “fell off a chair at his home while trying to hang drapes.”
In such a world, it was surely only a matter of time before a fake memoirist got elected as president of the United States. Indeed, the aforementioned Rigoberta Menchú ran as a candidate in the 2007 and 2011 presidential elections in Guatemala, although she got knocked out in the first round — Guatemalans evidently being disinclined to elect someone to the highest office in the land with no accomplishment whatsoever apart from a lousy fake memoir. Which just goes to show what a bunch of unsophisticated rubes they are.
Read it all.

In defense of my own prose, I can only point out that I wrote about Obama’s tendency toward fabulism in Obama’s Grandfather Killed While Fighting the Dutch in Indonesia or in a Tragic Haberdashery Event but Mostly in a Tragic Haberdashery Event , Hussein the Fakir, The Preference Cascade: Obama’s Really Bad, Terrible, Awful, Horrible, Not So Good Month and Defending Obamicus Cannabis I, the First Pope of Toke , so I at least beat Steyn in chronology.
