The inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States will mark the death of the ideal that was America. The land that once prided itself in its citizens’ ability to prosper against the most difficult odds and for over 200 years enjoyed the rule of law governed by the most enlightened constitution in the history of mankind, has chosen instead to trust its future to a man they know nothing about.
Like Chance, the protagonist of Jerzy Kosinski’s 1971 book Being There, Barack Obama’s pronunciations over the past year could be taken as a deeply profound insight into the nature of the human conditions, or the musings of a guileless innocent who really doesn’t know what he is saying.

What’s more interesting about this particular inauguration is the means through which it was made possible. Every single item that could be seen as a negative for Barack Obama was quickly and efficiently swept under the rug by a collusive media who felt it their duty to ensure that nothing gets in the way of this coronation.
Whether it was the candidate’s 20-year apprenticeship under a minister who spewed hateful invective against white America, or his association with an unrepentant terrorist who regrets he did not do enough violence to the United States, to even the questions regarding Mr. Obama’s legal status as a natural born American citizen, the country’s so-called mainstream media did everything in its power to minimize these issues. (In a case of life imitating art, Jerzy Kosinski’s protagonist, Chance, also couldn’t produce a legal birth certificate.)
