    Could the magazine's fawning and saccharine worship of Obama be any more inane, vacuous or superficial? "A Dog's Life: How Bo helped Barack • Eater in Chief: Where the President should dine this term • Presidential Encounters: Driving Reagan, caddying for Clinton, playing Obama, and more • Doling It Out: Which campaign spent more at Pizza Hut?" Where is the coverage on Obama's favorite TV shows and what clothing Michelle Obama is buying these days for her overstocked wardrobe? Inquiring minds want to know, because these truly are the pressing issues facing our nation at the moment.

    Appropriately infantile coverage for the deluded masses who have totally given themselves over to a cult of personality and who worship a consummate hustler and charlatan.
