From the 'Gag Me' Department

Politico reports how members of the Congressional Black Caucus, (that least free political institution in the Western world), are overcome with emotion about Obama’s securing the Democratic nomination.

For instance, Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. responded this way:

“I cried all night. I’m going to be crying for the next four years,” he said. “What Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation’s political history. ... The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance.”
(“Black lawmakers emotional about Obama's success”).

Hell, why not just have Obama write a new Bible? He’s clearly qualified. And it's a chance to correct the old Bible for accidentally leaving homophobia out of the Ten Commandments.

At any rate, in view of Jackson’s prediction that an Obama administration will have him “crying for the next four years,” (nor will he cry alone), I forecast the new Bible chapter will be a supplement to the Book of Lamentations.
