Barack Obama Superman

Even the Irish know what’s up:

Ireland’s largest bookmaker, Paddy Power, is today claiming that the Democratic Nomination race is well and truly over and are already paying out on Barack Obama to be the successful Democratic nominee.The early payout signals a massive EUR50,000 ($75,000) payday to lucky punters who backed Obama over the recent number of weeks at various odds ranging from 4/1 to 4/9.

The unexpected decision by the Irish bookmaking firm comes almost a week after the Iowa primary election and just a day before the New Hampshire primary election where Barack is now the odds on favourite at 1/12 to demolish his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

The New Hampshire numbers are in and Barack leads with 41%, Hilary is second with 28%, and Russell Simmon’s yoga buddy John Edwards had a solid 19%.

    I’m with Bird, this is hard to believe (though I’ve seen it reported in several places). If this is real, something funny is going on with that money and that bookie that has nothing to do with Obama. hehe.

    wow. this “alleged” story aside, you mean to tell me this country(!) might actually be ready to have a black president?

  • andie

    Brothas and sistas let us pray. *takes each hand and forms a circle*

    This nation needs some healing and I think Barack is the perfect man for the job.

    Do you have any idea how MAJOR this could be? I get excited just thinking about it!

    Does anyone think that the known to be racist middle america/media is supporting Obama b/c they know he can’t win the general election? I mean I thought people lived in Iowa b/c they didn’t want to be around all those “coloreds” in places like New York, LA and other parts of the country.

    What kind of question is that? America is ready for a good president be it black or white or man or woman. Let’s not get caught up in the self hate.
